Listen  Listener Mail Hi guys at WSGS - I was in Indianapolis  yesterday,  50  miles  from Indy and 60 miles north of  Louisville and I picked your  station  up on my car  radio.  Keep up the great work. God  Bless.  Danny Stinnet  I  love this  radio  station. Glad you're  online, now I can hear the best  music all the  way in Louisville. Thanks. Faron & Scott, I enjoy  your show. I try to listen  every morning.  I've been listening to  WSGS since 1988. WSGS is the best  radio  station in the  U.S.A. Heck, let's say  REAL  people stations like this,  and a far fewer of the  Corporation  Garbage types we have  plethora of ... Hello. I  am  very glad to see  WSGS has a live internet stream so I can listen to news and the music from the place where I grew up. I am really enjoying it.  Thanks. Bill in Ohio. I am so thankful to be able to  hear news down here in South Carolina from Hazard and  also to be able to see the pictures you present of our town. I appreciate the Flashback, i.e. Cash  Walker...I  remember watching Cas and his  humor was coarse but  good and sometimes I smiled even after the programs thinking back what he had said. Anyhow, I am blessed to  be able to listen to hometown news. WSGS rides the airways from KY to SC very clearly. Thanks so very much. Idalee Hansel, Spartanburg, SC WSGS, I absolutely love your show! You all are the last station I know of that plays true Country Music. If I lost your show I don't know what I would do. I have listened to WSGS for years on the way from my home in Lexington to Pineville. You all have created countless memories that I could share with my Grandfather with your all's station. One day I hope to visit Hazard and get to see where WSGS is. I also love the listen live streaming. Now when I go off to college in Florida I will be able to keep up with this great station. Thank you guys and keep up the amazing work! God bless! Nathaniel in Lexington, KY
