Programming Change: Sunday



Salt Lake City LDS Temple

Salt Lake City LDS Temple

Hey friends! It is with mixed emotions that I make this announcement about Sunday programming today.

Due to several factors, mainly the future growth and success of America’s Country, An Inspired Selection will no longer be featured on Sundays. Instead, we will continue to play Hot Country Hits, weekend style. We’ll shortly be adding specialty programming as well. That may include replaying our Saturday shows like CD-TEX and Texas Country Music Countdown.

My mixed feelings are stemming from my deep, Christian beliefs. As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I feel, as any Christian would, that spreading the Gospel is so key to living the religion. I have always felt like I was doing that by giving one day to Him. I have always felt conflicted in that this internet station is a business and I should treat it and think of it as a business. My personal, religious beliefs and feelings should really be separated.

On the business side of things, I see the number of listeners drop steeply each Sunday. I’ve observed and learned from many others that with internet radio, as well as radio in general, success is maintained and gained through consistency. Playing LDS music on Sundays completely ruined the consistent presentation I was trying to build. I was actually fighting against my own success.

This Sunday, August 31st, will be the last time An Inspired Selection will be broadcast on America’s Country. Beginning in September, America’s Country will be Hot Country Hits 24 hours a day, seven days a week! I’m very excited to see the results of this tough decision.

I hope you understand and I hope you enjoy this change we’re making.

Thank you! Love ya!

-Timmy

New Feature: The 90’s Drive @ 5




i_love_the_90s_281x211We (and you) Love the 90’s!!

We asked and you guys answered! Over the past several weeks, we’ve had a poll posted asking for your opinion on the amount of 90’s Country we play. Overwhelmingly, you responded that we should play more. I’m particularly fond of Country music of the 90’s as that is when I both gained a love for radio and the music itself. When I hear those songs, I instantly feel like I’m back in those early days of my life and in that transformational period in the history and evolution of what Country music is today. We’ve long held the tradition of playing an hour of 90’s Country at noon everyday for our 90’s @ Noon feature. A full hour of commercial-free 90’s hits that “takes you back without making you feel too old”. We had great response and many requests as well as our listener stats always make a big jump during that hour. We knew we were doing it right!

Now, for the past couple weeks, we’ve added another full hour of commercial-free 90’s Country and named it The 90’s Drive @ 5. Now every afternoon at 5pm Mountain, we give you another chance to think back to those wonderfully light and free days of a decade that brought us the World Wide Web and Garth Brooks. Be sure you set this time aside each weekday to listen to The 90’s Drive @ 5!

Hey friends! We had the distinct honor of being featured in a fantastic article on one of broadcasting’s premiere company’s newsletter and website. Telos Alliance is a conglomeration of several very high-end broadcast technology companies. One of which is Omnia Audio. If you’ve been around broadcasting at all, in or around radio stations or friends with some employees, you’d recognize the name. Along with professional hardware broadcast audio technology, Omnia also produces high-end software solutions. We have recently installed such a product called the Omnia A/XE. The A/XE is a combination broadcast audio processor and internet radio streaming encoder. Basically, it’s what makes America’s Country sound so good!

Shortly after installing this outstanding product, one of their representatives called me and we had a great conversation about the product as well as America’s Country and what we do. Now that conversation has been published on their website and you can read it now!

Here’s the URL you’ll need to visit their site and read this great article.
