Holidays are approaching!!



Christmas-Spirit-575x431

Happy Holidays from America’s Country!!

I am a huge fan of Holiday Music! In the past, we’ve played all Holiday music for the entire month of December. While my family, a few others, and myself have really enjoyed it, it’s not always the best strategy. This year, beginning the day after Thanksgiving, we will begin to slowly add Holiday songs to the normal rotation of Hot Country Hits. As we get closer to Christmas Day, we will have up to 4 or 5 songs per hour. For Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, I will be playing 48 hours of Christmas Music and hopefully some long-form specials from our providers.

I want to share my love of the Season without overwhelming you all. Holiday music can sometimes be a very polarizing thing. A lot of people really love it, some folks really don’t like it at all. And yet further, some folks are just kinda OK with it. I hope to strike a good balance and provide the best to everyone.

I will be playing some of the well known classics from Bing Crosby and Nat King Cole that you all know and love along with some of the best from our stable of incredible Country artists like Blake Shelton and Martina McBride. As always, I will ask for and encourage your constant feedback. Please post on Twitter, Facebook, or on this post if things need to be adjusted. “Play More Holiday Music!”, “Don’t play so much Holiday Music!”, etc… I want to know!

Again, we wish all of you Happy Holidays and thanks for listening to America’s Country!

Love ya,
Timmy

Programming Change: Sunday



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
