Spread the word!

Like so many things that happen in life, when you hear about it from a trusted friend or relative, you can trust that the message is true and meaningful. The same is true when you tell someone about something you’ve found to be valuable or useful. You tell your friends and family about a great deal or contest you saw online, a sale happening at your favorite store, a great coupon for a free meal at your favorite restaurant. This kind of communication is called word of mouth. For business owners, it’s the best form of advertising. One reason it’s the best is that unlike most other methods, word of mouth is entirely free! Another is that element of trust that is built-in to this powerful means of spreading the word.

As the owner and operator of America’s Country, one of my struggles is building a strong and loyal family of listeners who will always be there. As a natural entertainer, I get a lot of joy and get energized when I can see that something I create brings people their own joy and fun. America’s Country is my creative outlet. I love doing it! When I look at the stats and see that there are hundreds of you listening all day long and day after day, it kindles the fire inside me and makes me want to do more and to do it better.

I am inviting you all to spread the word. Talk to your family, friends and co-workers about America’s Country. Tell them your honest opinions about us. Express how you really enjoy listening to our Hot Country Hits all the time. Tell them we don’t play commercials. Tell them they can request songs and I’ll play them. If you follow us on Facebook, you see that I always ask for them to share the page on their own timelines and that is wonderful. I think you’ll agree that if you take a moment and tell someone face-to-face or on the phone (not a text), the communication and the effect will be more meaningful and lasting.

How to do you tell them to listen? I know that it’s not as easy as telling them to tune in to 101.3 on their car radio, but point them to either this site: or have them go to If they are Tweeters, have them go to There are many ways to find and listen to us.

Friends, I thank you in advance for your help with this. It means worlds to me that you would make such an effort. I wish you good luck. If you want to share your experiences, please comment below. If you have questions or concerns, email me:

Thank you!

2010 or 2010?

Happy New Year! 2009 was a huge year for KXRT! We were able to upgrade so many things that continue to make KXRT the best internet radio station! We’ve gotten faster computers, better playback software, much better sound processing tools and a snazzy new live radio show! If all that could happen in 2009, I can’t begin to imagine what’s coming for 2010!

As for the title of today’s post, the discussion has been on-going for a while now as to whether we should call this year twenty-ten or two thousand ten or even oh ten. I seem to go back and forth between the first two choices but am leaning toward twenty-ten. What are your thoughts? (more…)

Twitter Update

I’ve created a new Twitter account designed specifically for displaying currently playing music on KXRT. Add @kxrt_songs to your Twitter account to see song by song updates. Just be aware that it will be a busy account as a new tweet will be posted for every song we play.

We will continue to use @kxrt for station announcements and blog post tweets.

For those who may not be familiar, Twitter is an online service that allows visitors to post small 140 character messages with each other. This  is sometimes referred to as Micro-Blogging. Many popular news (like CNN and NPR) and pop culture publications (TMZ or Perez Hilton)and providers have accounts and post breaking news and information. The Twitter community can then RT (re-tweet) these posts in case some of their followers aren’t following that source. As you build your network you’ll see the benefit of Twitter. You can get incredibly fresh news and info on things like earthquakes or floods as well as what Miley Cyrus is currently up to. Yes, there are many celebrities who tweet what they’re doing. Some is admittedly dull and boring, but hey they’re regular people too.

Check into Twitter and set yourself up. Make sure you follow @kxrt and @kxrt_songs.
