Listener Comments and Reviews

When you broadcast an Amber alert make it understandable! Not the case Friday @2:30.

I wish that your station programmers would do something about the double/simultaneous transmissions of your commercials! It’s very distracting and annoying to listen to the garbled talking when this happens. Surely y’all are required to monitor your broadcasts. This is an ongoing and very annoying problem.

Love the station but when you promo your station the volume goes up 5 fold! Its just overkill and annoying. Thanks for considering this request to turn the volume down a little. BD
