I know I’ve not written anything here in a long while. I wish I could write more. All my extra (non living/family/work) energy has gone to my internet station. I invite you to listen. If you like today’s hot country music and hate commercials, you’ll simply LOVE America’s Country! I promise.
We play the biggest hits from today and the hits of the 90’s when Country Music exploded!
Sure, she’s pretty, but that voice! Ever since I first heard her singing Keith Whitley’s “When You Say Nothing At All”, I fell madly in love with her voice. We chose that song to be our Wedding Song. My wife preferred former Irish boy-band Ronan Keating’s cover from the Notting Hill soundtrack. We tugged back and forth and she ultimately agreed. (thanks, sweetie!)
Alison Krauss is a truly gifted artist and an angelic vocalist.
Yes, folks… As crazy as that sounds, Salt Lake City has ANOTHER country station! Don’t get me wrong, I love country music, but how much is too much? Let’s run it down for you… To my knowledge, here are the country stations in the Salt Lake City/Ogden/Provo radio market:
This is just silly. To give you some perspective, radio stations are part of radio markets that are designated by their major metropolitan areas. The SLC market is ranked #31. Arbitron, the radio ratings company, shows the population as about 1.6 million people that could be listening to the radio. New York City is ranked #1 with just over 15 million listeners. I explain this to you so you can grasp when something doesn’t make any sense. In New York and Los Angeles (#2), there are no country stations. In most of the top-30 markets there is usually only 1 and maybe 2 country stations at all. Now Salt Lake city has enough country stations for the rest of the top 10 markets!
I know I am a radio geek and love learning about how the industry works, so if you are entirely bored by this post, that’s totally understood. Some of you must find this interesting and have opinions. Share them! Leave a comment!
