By: Dennis Glover on September 9, 2011
found your station last week. love the music.thanks
By: klaus griffis on September 9, 2011
I thought radio like this was long gone. Even so-called "oldies" stations aren't even a close match to this magnificent new breath of fresh air !! Keep up the great job !! ALL my radios in house or in car are set at 91.9 FM. We've needed you for a LONG time !!
By: Thelma R on September 9, 2011
I was searching the FM dial this morning for another station when I picked up your station. I got to listening and the radio is still tuned to WKRI-FM. I was hoping to find the station broadcasting on the Internet for times when I may be in another area or could tell friends in another state about it. Having graduated high school in 1962 I remember these better songs before the heavy metal sound came along. Let us know if you get set up on the Internet. CWW

Just found this station last week. The BEST ever. I listen almost all the time, at home, outside, and in the car. All the vehicles and radios in the house are tuned to 91.9. Thank you sooooo much for a radio station that remembers the baby boomers, the 60's and good old beach music. Thank you. Please don't go away and don't change!!!!LOVE IT!!!!
By: Lynda M on September 10, 2011
GREAT STATION! please don't ever change.
By: R. Nelson on September 11, 2011
Love your station, I have told all my friends and family.
Great music for us baby boomers.
By: S Youngblood on September 16, 2011
I too found the station by accident four days ago and have been listening every day since. My favorite work station. I don't know how you do it, but please don't stop. I've heard songs I had long forgotten about. Replaces my Pandora!
By: S. Taylor on September 16, 2011
I pushed seek on my radio and liked the music I found. I didn't know what station I had found. Then I finaly heard oldies from Cokesbury, as in local.
I did this a couple of weeks ago, and haven't hit seek since.
Never listened to a station like this. Keep it up
By: Ronnie Llong on September 18, 2011
will you be streaming the signal live soon?
By: Milton Steve Clark on September 19, 2011
We enjoy your radio station, its good to have a station that plays the kind of music that we love, It comes in good in Spartanburg and Pacolet, but in Gaffney it is in and out, maybe you could boost your power. Stations like youll are few and far between. We live in Pacolet Mills and Its all down in a valley, but it gets better toward Spartanburg. Are youll connected to radio station 90.3 in Richburg, its also good when we go that away.
By: Rickey Ross on September 19, 2011
Love your station. Have waited a long time to find a station like yours to listen to. I love the songs you play and the fact that they are non-stop without all the commercial ads and interruptions. News updates and weather no problem since they are brief and concise. I get a lot of static some times but have put up with it do to great songs you play. Wish I could some how boost my reception since I stay on 91.9 when I am in the car./
By: Lester James on September 21, 2011
THANK GOODNESS!!! Finally a new station for US baby-boomers in the Greenville area.. and there are a lot of us!!! So nice to be able to listen to "our" tunes that we grew up with..when music was "real" and not the hip-hop rap/electronic "noise" ... or the dozen country and foreign stations that surround us! I'll be passing the word to my friends & family!!! We "boomers" may be considered old by some...but there are millions of us...still having fun. Hopefully local retailers will understand that too..and start playing your station instead of the "noise" that is played in most stores and restaurants. Hope your sales team is pitching your station all around the area!
By: DARLENE MAJOR on September 22, 2011
Found this station by accident on 9/21/11, and I'm glad I found it. Please keep the oldies format. Hope you play REAL oldies ('50s & 60s), NOT the music from the '70s and '80s, and that you play the oldies all the time. Some stations in the G'ville-S'burg area claim to be oldies stations, but they often have other programming, such as sports, church services, etc.
By: Al on September 22, 2011
Love your station here in Anderson SC. Love the 50s and 60s
By: Ed on September 22, 2011
I LOVE YOUR NEW STATION COMING IN GOOD AND STRONG IN BELTON
KEEP IT GOING BECAUSE THE UPSTATE NEEDED A STATION THAT PLAYS ALL OF THE OLDIES AND NOT THIS NEW RACKET THAT OTHER ROCK STATIONS PLAYS.
By: RAY FROM BELTON on September 24, 2011
Awesome music! Just found channel today, really enjoy the tunes!!!
By: Denise in Anderson SC on September 25, 2011
Thank You, Thank You a million times over for all the good old
oldies that you are playing, have not heard some of the songs that I grew up on in a long time. You are the best station ever to come on in this area. Please keep the same format going because we did not need a another country or rock station. Also enjoyed the Southern Gospel that you played this Sunday Morning.
By: Kevin from Williamston on September 25, 2011

By: Scott Thomas on September 29, 2011
never, ever seriously considered radio advertizing until I listened to your station. Not bogged down with some DJ who thinks he's more famous than the music. Great tunes, format. Keep it up & let me know if adds become a possibility on your local feed. Would love to get back to Colesbury & play a round on your beautiful golf course!
By: Anonymous on September 29, 2011

By: Curt Bradford on October 5, 2011
WE LOVE THIS OLDIES STATION!! We do not know how long this has been on the air~~but we just found this 2 weeks ago and have all our radios turned on to ONLY THIS STATION!!! I was listening to a great 50s song the other day while running errands~~got home and had the radio CRANKED UP ALL THE WAY while helping my husband with a few things outside. The neighbor next door thought we had our jukebox on!! Our neighbors now are "new listeners" to this station too!! We own a small 1930 filling station in Laurens called NOSTALGIC STATION. We play oldies music all the time and have a monthly free car-cruise in the 1st Friday of each month. Anyone liking old cars and THE OLDIES can come by the 1st Fri of any month 6 to 10pm!! For infor call Rich or Cindy at (864)984-0527 Our website is: Nostalgicstation.com SEARCH: Nostalgic Station Laurens to see pages of photos. THANK YOU 91.9 OLDIES OF COKESBURY FOR PLAYING SOME GREAT OLDIES OF THE 50S, 60S & 70S!! KEEP THEM COMING!!!!!!!!!
By: Rich and Cindy Kuhnel on October 5, 2011
As many others my husband found your station by accident. We've been living in Ninety Six, SC for 8 years. We retired here from PA and we have been starving for some great music. Your station is a breath of fresh air. Keep the good sounds coming.

By: Roni G. on October 6, 2011
I found WKRI by surfing the radio. Great music. I live in Powdersville and work at BMW on the night shift. The signal is pretty strong in those areas from 6 pm to 6 am. I laughed this morning as you played, "I've Been Hurt"; that was the theme song at Starnes in Greenwood during the late 60's and early 70's. Brought back a lot of memories from growing up in Ware Shoals and attending Lander. Keep up "my kind of music".
By: David Finley on October 7, 2011
Thank you for bring this new station to us. I have been telling everyone to tune in and enjoy!!!

By: Debra on October 10, 2011
GREAT MUSIC! Brings back lots of memories, thanks for a job well done.
By: Charles Long on October 11, 2011
I had been searching, unsuccessfully, for a radio station, since the one I listened to changed it's format. I ran across WKRI and have not listened to anything else since. Thank you. I can hear it in my car and have a little trouble at home, but, all of my radios are turned to 91.9. I am spreading the word. Hopefully, your signal will strengthen with all your new listeners! Love, love, love ... Spartanburg, BTW!
By: Renee Hughes Hawkins on October 12, 2011

By: Jerry Peeler on October 12, 2011
Just found you quite by accident. I travel to work early in the am and entertain all the other commuters by singing the entire 30 minutes. Thank you for a wonderful mix. I know all the words!!! Keep up the good work. It puts me in a good mood to start the day.
By: Mary Hammond on October 13, 2011
I do not understand why this station is licensed to Cokesberry. The transmitter and antenna is between ware shoals and Waterloo. Also there is no studio.
By: Josh on October 16, 2011
Thank God ! we found your station 5 days ago & haven't been able to turn it off. I'm telling all my friends, had to run a second story antenna, but it was well worth it. Don't change a thing, you have our devotion !
By: Gary Petsch on October 17, 2011
Thank you! Thank you! Please live stream! The nation needs more of this!
By: tina clark on October 18, 2011
My husband and I are so excited to finally have an oldies station. I had started to listen to talk shows because there were no radio stations in the Anderson area. I hope to listen to you for many, many years and will be telling my friends to tune into 91.9 FM.
By: Dee on October 19, 2011
Great station,superb format. I spend a lot of time driving and I listen everyday. I am promoting WKRI by word of mouth every day. Keep on playing the oldies,we love it.Thanks and may GOD bless you.

Thank goodness!!! I was getting desperate trying to find good music on the radio! Thank you, thank, you, thank you!!!
By: Katie Gillespie on October 21, 2011
This is a wonderful station with an amazing signal. I have been able to listen out past Lincolnton, GA and up by Clemson. Without commercials, as well...How do they do it??
By: Chris from Greenwood on October 22, 2011
What a welcoming sound. We're tickled pink to have found you. And on my hubby's 60th birthday. What a gift.
By: Maggie Z - Simpsonville SC on October 24, 2011
Have been looking for an oldies station for the three years we've been living in SC. Love your music and format. You make my day.
By: Anonymous on October 26, 2011
Just learned about your station, and I love the oldies. Only one complaint...not loving the beach music. How about just playing Top 40 hits. Thanks.
By: Kathy on October 29, 2011
Good station, great music. But I was wondering are these the original recording artists, or covers? If the latter, they've done a great job of recording!
By: Jim on October 30, 2011
I had almost given up on radio and then to my astonishment I found your station. I kept listening waiting for some DJ to yell and scream some silly joke, but it didn't happen. Thanks for the great music. Don't change a thing. We really love this station.
By: Tommy Harrison on October 31, 2011
Found your station by accident. Finally a decent radio station in the upstate that plays great oldies tunes. I live in Greenville and pick it up really well. Keep it coming...
By: Steve Hawley on November 1, 2011
I stumbled on WKRI last week and the radio dial has been glued every since, playing good music even my customers are asking what station I'm listening to, not to much of the beach music please just the popular songs, puts me in a good working mood all day, Thank you very much.
By: the grillmaster cafe on November 2, 2011
Loving it don't stop. actually a decent radio station even my customers are asking what station I'm listening to. puts me in a good mood all day. Tony Green The GrillMaster.
By: the grillmaster cafe on November 2, 2011
What a refreshing surprise to find your station and those wonderful oldies as well as the beach music. I thought that here in the upstate that we had lost all possabilities of ever having this type of music again. Thank you for being there and the music format that you have..

Activations of the siren test will start with north only; middle only and finally, south only activation.
The purpose of this new zoning of siren alerts will permit Emergency Management target more accurately tornado alert areas.
Public feedback is encouraged. Email firstname.lastname@example.org any appropriate comments.
Please inform the general public that the siren system is only intended to alert those individuals OUTSIDE of any structure. Those citizens desiring complete emergency notification coverage should consider the purchase of a NOAA All Hazard Weather Alert Radio.

Hello from the booming Hickory Tavern Metroplex!....running a prolonged aircheck of your GREAT sounding station on my early 70's vintage Pioneer SX-727 Receiver and a TEAC X-10r reel to reel loaded with Maxell UD-XLI 35-180B tape on the 10.5" silver metal reels doing the recording honors......LOVE IT!!!......OLD SKOOL ROCKS!!!

By: Ellis Fowler on November 10, 2011
Love your station! I'm 37, but your music reminds me of growing up when my mom had the oldies playing 24/7. Love how the music spans the decades from the 50's-80's. Talked to my sister 3 times about this station already LOL GREAT SONGS

You're on the buttons of several in our old guys motorcycle group. How can you be non-commercial? I love it but don't understand how you pay your bills.
By: Mike Emily on November 15, 2011
found station DX'ing on Sony XDR-F1HD tuner & yagi antenna. Pick it up in Black Mtn NC, and various other mtn. peaks in WNC. Good to great signal traveling through upstate, of course. Really great having true oldies format again, since the other "oldies" station in Greer doesn't seem to be really interested in the format any more. Hope the format stays, and isn't just another teaser to hook an audience, before changing to some garbage rap format, AC/urban or whatever passes for music these days. Unfortunately, seen this too many times - bait & switch. Classic format swap, where the PM/OM thinks the audience will stay put despite radical format departure. Not this listener - if it changes, I'll go elsewhere. Hope it stays as is, but not holding my breath. Somebody has to be shelling out some serious $$ to back a 25KW FM station... and rightfully expects return on investment at some point. Hope it can make it as currently programmed. Good luck.
By: Scott-ACS-Co on November 15, 2011
Went to the Ward, SC Trail Ride this past weekend. Found you on the way down from Greenville and played you all weekend at our camp. we danced the nite away to the great music you play. Was so glad that I can pick you up at home! You made a lot of people happy this past weekend!!
By: Jules Olson on November 15, 2011
By the way, heard the story on how you can play commercial free! Thanks for your contribution to the music loving people in this area!
By: Jules Olson on November 15, 2011
Discovered WKRI a few days ago. Hallelujah! Upstate SC has needed a consistent great oldies station for sometime. I'll tell everyone I know. I wish you every success.
By: Steve Carter on November 16, 2011
Great station. So glad to hear the oldies again. Makes me happy going to and from work. Love it. Told all my friends about this new station. Please keep the "oldies" going.
By: Debbie on November 17, 2011
MY WIFE FOUND YOU A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO AND WE ABSOLUTLEY LOVE IT!!! WE USED TO LISTEN TO FOX 97 OUT OF ATLANTA, BUT LIKE MANY OTHERS THEY SWITCHED TO JUNK MUSIC. I HAVE LISTENED TO COUNTRY, BUT LONGED FOR THE OLDIES AGAIN! THANKS AGAIN FOR BRINGING THEM BACK. THIS IS THE TYPE MUSIC THAT OUR YOUNG ADULTS NEED TO HEAR, NOT THE VULGAR STUFF WE GET TODAY. THANKS AGAIN FOR THE WONDERFUL SOUND OF THE OLDIES BUT GOODIES!!

By: Lauren Mims on November 18, 2011
Like most of the boomers posting, I found your station the same way. My wife actually was the one. She was scanning the dial in her car and your station hit. We stopped right there and set all the presets on all our radios. We turned the XM off because you are much better. I play your station in my business and everyone that comes in says you sure play good music.Until I found you it was CD's of Carolina Beach music.Keep the oldies vibrating the airwaves.
By: Harry M on November 18, 2011
I agree with a lot of the others...it's about time we have an oldies station in this area. The Sunday morning gospel songs, as well as other songs, bring back so many memories. Thank you and God Bless you
By: Mil Martin on November 20, 2011
Great station and format!!
By: James Hardy on November 20, 2011
My wife found your station, thank God. Better than anything out of the GSP area. Please keep it up and we willl keep listening.
By: Don H on November 21, 2011
Listening today, seems to a bug in the works as the songs stop after a minute as another song picks up. Still LOVE the station! Don't want to lose you!
By: Gayle on November 22, 2011
My boss turned me on to WKRI on Monday. Very refreshing change! Seems to be a programming glitch today ... songs starting & stopping in midst. But I can handle growing pains. How do you do it without advertising? However, hope you can maintain. Listining in Simpsonville & Mauldin.
By: Matt D on November 22, 2011
As usual drive time radio in Greenville sucked so the wife was channel surfing. If it's a clear morning we can get 105.7 out of Augusta. Not this morning. She normally don't go down that low on the dial because it's all religious or public broadcasting stations. She says it's fantastic. Clear reception today at Woodruff Rd and 385.
By: Ron on November 23, 2011
Love the station BUT over the last 10-14 days there is a lot of static as well as while listening to a song another song will cut in but volume lower then in a little change back and forth. Is there something wrong with your controller or is it the host doing something strange?
By: mike martin on November 23, 2011

I was just thinking the other day about calling you and seeing if you could get a station of Oldies and Beach Music for the upstate, especially Anderson and Oconee County. I listen to 90.3 when I travel to York County. My Prayers have been answered, Awesome, Thank You so much.
By: Kenny Gordon on December 3, 2011
I was scanning stations when I was in Greenwood SC and found you. I was sooooo excited. I LOVE your oldies. I am from Anderson SC but my car radio is not too good so I can't get you all the time, but you are a great station. It's been a long time coming for a good oldies station around here. I'll tell everyone I know about you. Keep bringing it!

By: Janice Weaver on December 14, 2011
My sister-in-law told me about your station, & we have been listening ever since then. Enjoy hearing songs we hadn't heard in years. I'm also a fan of The Speer Family & heard one of their old songs as I was driving to church one Sunday. Thanks for the memories!
By: L.Goldman on December 15, 2011
Love, love, LOVE that you don't play Christmas music 24-7! Heard Smokey & The Miracles "I Don't Blame You at All" on the way to work this morning. People at the traffic light thought I was CRAZY, jumping up and down and singing at the top of my lungs! ADORE your station!!! Merry Christmas y'all!
By: Debra on December 19, 2011
WKRI is just what I've been searching (and praying) for. My drive to and from work is so much more pleasant now thanks to you! I'm hearing songs that I haven't heard since forever - and it makes me happy. Thanks for a great format!!

WOW...your oldies are loud and clear in Pendleton,SC! Found you by accident recently...Could not believe my good fortune to find you and this great music! Love the beach music since I am a Carolina girl! So glad we have something in the upstate now! Keep the good oldies playing...I'm hooked!!
By: Beverly E. Land on December 23, 2011
Thank you for bringing the oldies back.
By: Les Gaines on December 25, 2011
My wife & I love your station. Listen to it all the time.
By: Martin Junkins on December 26, 2011
Like so many of the other comments from listeners, I found this radio station by accident, and my wife and I love it! We really needed this type of format in the upstate area, as there are a lot of us baby boomers here in the Greenville area who really appreciate listening to the music we grew up with. Thank you for bringing the oldies to the Upstate and keep up the great work! BTW- its also nice to hear you are still playing Christmas/ holiday music, as most other stations stop playing right after Christmas. Again, thank you!
By: Rob on December 29, 2011
YOU PLAYED A SONG I AM DYING TO KNOW THE NAME OF. IT WAS PLAYED AT 3:20 ON 12/29/11. HELP!!!!
By: MARIE PAULICELLI on December 29, 2011
Your radio station is THE BOMB. I can't get enough of it. I am able to pick it up without interference. This is my kind of music, the music I grew up with . Please stay. You are needed !!!!!
By: Carol Thomason on December 30, 2011
Im a machine shop owner whose work has just all dried up so I do a good bit of sitting and just listening nowadays, lol and man it's been n a big pleasure to listen to a station play the music from the days my life was so full joy and the music was real !
Please tell me where to send my donation as this is now my daily church,,,,,thanks so much,,,,Chuck listening @ Hi-Tec Tool, Inc. Sugar Tit, South Carolina.
By: Chucknsc on December 31, 2011
I discovered your station last week and listen to it all the time. Thank you for the great music. Keep up the good work. Our area needed a station like yours.
By: Barbara - Greer on December 31, 2011
I love this station .....Is it streamed so I can listen online ????
By: laura on January 2, 2012
Love your music, just wish it was on more often, are you having equipment problems? I can not remeber the last time I heard The Isrealite!!!
By: Bob Osthues on January 3, 2012
This station is awesome! Wish I could receive in Upstate NY!!!
By: Anonymous on January 3, 2012
the real test of a radio station is ...how often would you switch to another channel? You pass...I never switch. But how do you get your funding?
By: Dave Maddox at MVPizza on January 5, 2012
Can't get enough of your station. Have every radio in my house and cars tuned in. It's so pleasent to hear something from my generation. Keep up the great work and please don't change. Please start streaming live if possible. Also a little more power would be great. Can barely get you in Prosperity sometimes.
By: Timothy Connelly on January 10, 2012
What's more dangerous while driving? Texting or dancing? I can't help myself! I love all of this music I grew up with! I can sing along, it's great! But so hard to stay still! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this station. Never do I hear the same song twice! THANK YOU!!!!!! for such a great alternative to ALL the other stations!
By: Anne Rack on January 12, 2012
I just wanted too let you know I love your station. Found out about it at a yard sale the lady told me where I could find your station. I am so glad. Thank you for the great music.
By: Cindy Brown on January 12, 2012
I came across this station by accident on my way home back in November because the other stations (that I don't listen to anymore) were playing Christmas music all day everyday. Once I hit this station on my radio I was hooked. I have been turning everyone I know on to it. Love it to death... My only complaint is that I have a hard time getting it on my radio at work. Oh well I guess you can't have everything.. Super variety, Love the music.
By: Larry Davis on January 13, 2012
I just returned to the upstate and was desperate to find a station that I could fall asleep to. I can't imagine anyone (with taste) not enjoying the mix of music, and without commercials!!! - Wow - From now on, it's 91.9 all the time.
By: Mj on January 14, 2012
Found your station while driving home from Columbia. Great music. I had good signal to within 2 miles of my house in Lyman and it got fuzzy. Need to broadcast on the web.
By: Mike Comer on January 16, 2012
Absolutely brings a big smile (or two) as I listen and remember the background music from my college years. Yes, I'm a moldy oldie, too! Keep up the great work!
By: MAR on January 17, 2012
I absolutely LOVE this station! I don't listen to anything else! How wonderful to finally have an Oldies and Beach Music station that doesn't waste time with talk or commercials! A million than yous!
By: Ann Benjamin on January 21, 2012
How can I pick up the station in Columbia, SC ?
By: dr on January 22, 2012
Thanks for the great songs. I now have it saved on my truck radio. Hope you stay around forever.
By: Al Raymond on January 24, 2012
I am a New Yorker who moved to South Carolina 4 years ago. One of the things I missed most was a good radio station. I usually tune in to NPR or college stations. I am not a Country or Doo Wop fan. Man! I found your 99.1 station and I glued my dail to it. It is not the same over-played oldies. Bravo to the program director! I have turned half a dozen friends on to your fine station and we all agree, YOU ROCK!
By: James Carlson on January 26, 2012
I love, love, love the oldies. For a long time there was an oldies station out of Atlanta that I could pick up where I live, but it has been off the air now for probably ten years. I have always since then wished that there was a good oldies station to listen to. There are plenty of classic rock stations, I enjoy those too, but I am so happy to have found this radio station! It brightens every single one of my days!
By: Mindy on January 28, 2012
We love the oldies!! We found your station while scanning for something worth listening to. You fade out a bit when we are driving in low areas or are surrounded by hills and heavy trees, but it is worth the occasional static just to hear the great music. You rock!! PS I hope you get a stronger signal. We are picking you up in the Greer, Taylors,Greenville area.
By: Sharron on January 29, 2012
We found you just last week and haven't switched yet. (Just like every one else) Thank you for bring the "Real Oldies" back to our area. Keep it up for a long time.
By: Elaine Holland on January 30, 2012
Great music, boy did we need a change from the same old 30 songs the other guys play! Keep up the good work, Rock On
No comercials how do you do it?
By: Pete from Anderson on February 1, 2012
Was in the area recently and really enjoyed listening to this station. Have been reading the posts for WKRI and noted that no posts show up after Dec 2 however if I search under REVIEWS AND COMMENTS more recent posts about WKRI do appear. Can Radiolineup.com fix this?
By: John E. on February 2, 2012
Thanks so much. Finally a great radio station in the upstate. Listening all the time.
By: Tammy on February 3, 2012
Great music. Thanks!
By: Judy on February 4, 2012
LOVE the music! Have high static volume around Greenville area when it's cloudy, but on clear days, can listen forever. Wish you would announce artist and year regularly.
By: carol on February 6, 2012
Love it! Thanks
By: George Pullin on February 7, 2012
The most fantastic radio experience in a long time...I was a radio DJ at WQOK back in the 1970's and we played this type music..LOVE IT..!!!!! never change..teling everybody I meet about your station. Lots of us at Greenville Memorial Hospital listening and loving it..spreading like wildfire.!!!
By: larry and Becky cordell on February 8, 2012
Great station. I am truly enjoying the music with minimal talk...novel approach in current broadcasting...thank you.
By: Lin-Heart on February 9, 2012
Found station on recent through upstate and just love it. I want to listen via web from Atlanta home, but cannot find that it is available. Anyone know a link or time when plan to have this great station internet available? thanks
By: Atlanta Traveler on February 10, 2012
Just found your station, don'tknow what to add. Am super excited to hear the oldies again. Thank you.1492
By: janeisman on February 11, 2012
I, too, found your station by accident. I was scanning the FM band, and out of my car speakers came this great oldies music -- song after song after song with hardly any interruption. It makes me wonder how your station is able to meet expenses (heating, cooling, utilities, etc.) without advertising revenues, nor have I, for one, ever heard any requests made on air for donations. I have submitted my e-mail address, and would like to know how you meet your expenses. How do you do it? (I don't want to tune to 91.9 one morning or afternoon just to find out that you had to "pull up stakes" and go away because you couldn't make your radio station a fiscally successful enterprise. "Profit" isn't a bad word, you know.)
By: Al K. on February 11, 2012
I'm from the north ( nj) now living in Greenville, SC, Love this station, lots of great oldies!!! Thanks!
By: jACKIE on February 12, 2012

REMINDERS OF OUR YOUTH-- GREAT TO HAVE U
PASSING THE WORD AROUND TO ALL MY FRIENDS---
By: Major T Crawford on February 13, 2012
Love the music, I have not heard The Istrealite in 30 years, get it once a week now, awesome. Have played WKRI at Greenville County Freinds of Library on thursday mornings, have at least 5 new listeners from that, they are doing great
By: Robert Osthues on February 15, 2012
Love this radio station. A friend told me about 91.9, now this is my favorite. Getting good reception in Fountain Inn, SC.
By: Carl D. on February 17, 2012
There is an annoying hummmm or buzzzzz recently in your broadcast. Please try to eliminate it. I don't want to miss a thing. Love your music.
By: P McGuire on February 21, 2012
As you can see by all the responses, your station is needed, wanted, and very much appreciated by many--me included. And a commercial free station of any kind is practically unheard of, not to mention a decent golden oldies station for those of us who grew up with this music that set the stage for almost all music that has come since (I personally prefer this music because I can hear and understand the lyrics!). Again, kudos to you and all who are responsible for making this station possible. May you reign forever!!!
By: RRRRR on February 23, 2012
As a little kid growing up in the 60's i listen to this music. Love this station. How do you stay operating without the advertisments? so much_cooler. You the bomb. Keep it up. and keep the advertisment man down.
Do you take donations?
By: mark dennie on February 25, 2012
I just learned of your station last week. Now it is my favorite! Best station in this area. Thanks much.
By: RW on February 26, 2012
I just found your station, what a joy to finally have real music back. please don't ever change this format.
By: Jim Browder on February 29, 2012
Just found your station while driving from Anderson to Edgefield, SC. Absolutely love it. Set the #1 quick pick button right away! You began to fade as I neared hone on Lake Hartwell. Hope to listen much more. Would like to see you boost power, so I can get good reception in Anderson!!!
By: Bob Straup on February 29, 2012
What a great radio station.....since I found it my dial has not changed!!
By: J Wilkerson on February 29, 2012
Upbeat,happy and right next to the Public Radio band.
WGOG Walahalla used to have your type of format and they dropped it in 1997 ,I've missed it since. This station reminds me of KRTH ( KAY- EARTH )out of Los Angeles.
Thank you ! I'd PAY for your type of programing .
Right on ! Far out ! What happening !
By: ABestDealCo.com on March 1, 2012
Just found you this week and really love the station and the music. Hate that i didnt find you sooner.
You sure make the ride home on I-85 a lot more

By: Susan on March 9, 2012
Love the station. It so good to hear the oldies again. Im in my sixties, so your music is from my era. Keep up the good music!
By: Nancy Goodwin on March 10, 2012
The best station I've found in years, the only thing that would be better, is if you could increase your power to reach Landrum, S.C. more clearly, you fade out alot up here.
But I do love your oldies, you seam to cover from the 1950's to the 1980's, I think. It took me a little while to find Cokesbury, but I did find you. keep it comming.

By: James Deaton on March 11, 2012
Wonderful radio station! It is hard to get in greenville. Can you help?
By: Terry on March 13, 2012

Thanks-Wife of a Preacherman
By: wife of a preacherman on March 14, 2012

By: Anonymous on March 15, 2012
You're like a breath of fresh air... I was traveling with a friend who happended to be listening to you. I was hooked!!
I now listen to you at home, while traveling in my car, and at work. Thank you for bringing back so many good memories.
Keep up the good work!!
By: Sandi Satterfield on March 19, 2012
Found this station by accident today. Love it - no silly endless chatter, however it does not come on inside my house.
By: May in Greenville on March 26, 2012
Only problem is we need a stronger signal, I work in Travelers Rest & reception is spotty here.
By: Buddy Dudley Powdersville on March 28, 2012
Friends of the Greenville Library sort books every Thursday morn to WKRI, we are all over 50, people ask me for the requency several times each week, love it! Our used book sale is 4/20-4/22 at Merovan Center, across Wodruff from Kohls. All catagorized, all alphabetized, low prices, half price on Sunday, really good deal.

By: Jane G. on April 1, 2012
I love your station!! I love the oldies music, it is so uplifting and brings back great memories. I live in the Anderson, SC area and have longed for a station that played some good oldies and finllay happened up on it when scanning channels. Needless to say, it's on preset now! Glad to know someone finally GOT IT RIGHT!! Keep up the good work!
By: Elaine on April 5, 2012
It's time us "boomers" had our own music on the airwaves.I used to play this music on a local AM radio station in the early 70's. Let's get more Beatles on!
By: vince van horn on April 5, 2012
My radio is set on 91.9. I am passing the word to every one I know! This is the best station that I have tuned to in years! I love your non stop oldies! Stay just as you are but please stay! Thank you again for your wonderful station! Best of luck!
By: G Williams on April 10, 2012
Great Station! Love the music. Use to listen to 102.5, but not anymore.
By: Donnie Jarrett on April 12, 2012
Like many of the other listeners, I found you by accident. You have the greatest programming of any oldies station I have ever listened to. Not only are the car radios programmed for 91.9 FM but my wake up clock radio is set to WKRI! Keep up the great work and do not change your format!
By: John O in Simpsonville SC on April 25, 2012
A FRIEND TOLD ME ABOUT YOUR STATION WITH ALL THE OLDIES.

Hope to hear from someone soon
By: Dianne Wyatt on May 7, 2012
Accidentally found your station a few weeks ago and I LOVE tha songs you play. it is so hard to find stations that play 60's and 70's Top 40 songs...the songs I listened to when I was in high school. I graduated in 1965...the only problem I have is that soetimes I have a hard time getting your signal. I live in Greer, SC, just off Pelham Road. Any chance you might boost your signal strength anytime soon? Keep up the good work!!
By: Linda Bell on May 15, 2012
I'm on the fringe of your listening band. Wish I could listen every where I go. Thanks for playing the "real" Oldies

Just found your station by accident a few weeks ago in Greeville and have only changed it when the reception goes out. Love this stationa nd hope you can boost your signal someday. Live in Powdersville and commute to Greenville so there is a lot of static obviously.
By: Bill Stafford on June 6, 2012

Fantastic!! Love your music! Thanks so much. Please, don't go away. Haven't pulled out any of my old 45's in ages. Thank you so much for reminding me how great they are and by listening to you I don't have to search through dozens to find special favorites. Loving you!!

By: Shaeron Dunlap on June 18, 2012
Hey I must be dreamin'. I kinda miss the DJ, but if no DJ helps you to keep beamin' the tunes north to Spartanburg I'll keep listening. Most of our car radios here in the Burg can pick up your signal. It would be nice if you could add a few more watts. Keep up the good work!

Love your format. Whenever I listen to radio, it's your station. Do you or anyone stream your station on the internet?
By: Raul Gonzalez on June 30, 2012
I listen to 91.9 WKRI (I think) it's a little staticky sometimes. I live in Easley SC. I would listen to it all the time if I could get better reception. It's pretty good in the car, but can't get it in the house. I LOVE THE OLDIES AND BEACH music. It's my favorite of all times. I pray i can get it better. I am doing a radio survey and have put you guys down everyday. Thank you for the clean and enjoyable memerable music. LOVE it! Tonya Taylor
By: tonya taylor on July 1, 2012
I love this radio station. This is the music I grew up with. It is number 1 on my car dial and I keep my home radio on it all the time. I love Charlie Brown Beach Music time but would like to suggest more Motown. My friends and 1972 classmates are all spreading the news about this terrific station on Facebook. Thanks for the commercial free broadcast. This is the kind of place I could work at and enjoy going to work everyday.
By: Lynn Hall Arrowood on July 7, 2012
Absolutely love this station!! The songs of my youth and so much variety. It is the BEST station to get work done to when I can resist the urge to start dancing. Wish I could stream it....Are there plans for that in the future???

By: Charleen Galloway on July 21, 2012

Someone in the parking lot of Goodwill in Greer told me what she was listening to. What she had on her radio sounded better than what I had on so I tuned in. I LOVE IT! Would love to be able to listen online someday too! Please keep up the good work! Today's music sucks!
By: Linda on July 29, 2012
Now we can listen to great music in the Golden Corner that is WALHALLA SC. Thank You
By: Steve Petty on July 29, 2012
Wow! Man this is like the Coolest...Groovy..Rockin..Hippest station in the area. I found it by surfin stations...I got bored with the beach guy...he talks too much...and always has wannabe oldie groups doing promos and playing newer songs that try to immitate the oldies...but no one can copy an original group and make it better. Please don't start playing remakes. Us baby boomers had the best music ever recorded...from the very oldie 50's (which my mom turned me onto when I was a little girl) to the British invasion...the Go Go music...then the Hippie songs then into the Disco dancing music...It's all good! LoVe it and Love listening to your station. I can only pick it up in the car...can't listen in my trailer..but if I could I would be Dancing! Wish there was a way we all could be chatting through here...I don't do FB or twitter. Blessings to all my Baby Boomer family! LoVe & Peace! OH! and Please don't change the format...or play music past the 70's!
By: EllY Woman on August 2, 2012
My husband told me about this radio station.. I LOVE IT!! It is all I listen too.. I was born in the 80's but I grew up listening to this kind of music

By: Peggy Mercer on September 9, 2012
great station listen at work and in car love your play selections
By: William Orr on September 10, 2012
Heard about this station. As a child of the 50's & 60's, I've been searching for a station that plays this genre since moving to the Upstate 10 yrs ago. Hope you will get a stronger signal over time. Also love that you play music without all the 'cute' talk that seems so much a part of the format of the other Greenville stations. I don't listen to the radio for 'patter', I listen for music that I like...Thanks for being this kind of station!!!!
By: Mary H. on September 15, 2012
My all time favorite radio station! Just wish we could stream it online so I can listen to it at work!!!! Keep up the great work and please stay around!! Great music that's makes listening fun!!1 I've been spreading the word!!
By: Jan on September 17, 2012
I love this station! However, when I open you browser then click listen online it shuts down my browser. PLEASE have your tech support team fix this so I can continue to listen at work.
Also, this morning, September 19, on the way the work, I could not get the radio station in my car.
By: Gloria Chinn on September 19, 2012
Just found your station about a month ago and love it because I'm "of the age" who loves the oldies music. It's definitely on my car radio all the time. Thanks.
By: Wanda on September 19, 2012
Thank God we found your station,best songs ever. We've told a lot of people about your station and they said that WKRI is the only station they listen to now. Keep giving us the great oldies and we'll bring you more ears.
By: Dan on September 21, 2012
Is there any way I can get this station on the radio or online? I live in Helen, GA 30545
By: Judy George on September 21, 2012

In a nutshell - I love it! Keep it up.
By: Hal Taylor on September 28, 2012
what a great station. Can we get a play lot by time and date?
By: Ed Harris on September 30, 2012
Found your station last week and I love the format. I just cancelled Sirus in my truck and programmed 91.9. I get good reception here in the Travelers Rest area.
By: Glenn Farr on October 6, 2012
Finally a station that I can listen to without country, hip hop, rap, or commercials all the time! It's like taking a Tv Music channel or having Sirrus without paying for it!
By: David McMillin on October 8, 2012
1910 Fruit Gum Co! Simple Simon!! Wow you play the most fantastic music! Thank you. We have been telling everyone about you.
By: D. Harkness on October 10, 2012
THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOUR STATION IS JUST GREAT. BUT WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO GO ON LINE SO WE CAN LISTEN TO IT WHEN WE ARE NOT IN THE AREA. AGAIN, YOU NAILED IT AND THANK YOU FOR THE HOURS OF ENJOYMENT!
By: TISSIE on October 10, 2012
Great mix of oldies from the 50's, 60' and 70's without having to switch channels as with other paid formats. Just wish you guys were on line and I'd even pay for the subscription. Any chances?
By: Nick Arkon on October 18, 2012
We absolutely love your station and listen as much as possible. We can get your signal pretty well in our cars but we live downtown Greenville and have difficulty getting you signal downtown. Is there an alternate band we can get to receive your broadcast. More people need to hear your station!!!
By: Bob Ellis on October 25, 2012
why is there so much DEAD AIR time on your station in the mourning? .
By: Jim McCall on October 27, 2012
How refreshing to hear an oldies station once again in our area. There are still alot of folks who look forward to hearing these songs which bring back so many memories. Do you have any LIVE announcers? I'd love to work at WKRI-FM, since I have radio experience and I'm very famliar with your playlist.
By: Peter L. Rinzivillo on October 28, 2012
Perfect, Just found out about you by accident. Don't change a thing. THANK YOU
By: warren white Simpsonville on November 4, 2012

Moving here to Brevard, NC from Richmond, Va. I became depressed over the Radio Stations I was getting....until I found you ! Thanks so much for being here ! Love the format and the no commercials ! Please keep up the great work !
By: Bob Crane on November 21, 2012
What a relief......finally a station that plays the music I grew up with and love, yes I'm a baby boomer. I had been button surfing for a while until my sister-in-law told my husband about your station. Your music makes me SMILE..... Hope you're around for a long time. Thank you, thank you.
By: Barbara Jackson on December 5, 2012
Have my car radio set to 91.9 oldies. LOVE this station. I hear songs I've never heard before as a baby boomer. I heard a song yesterday about, a fatboy, and it had something like I can't believe a sweet girl like you could love a fat boy like me. Can you please let me know how I could find this song I heard it about 11:30 AM December 7. Keep the oldies coming they are very calming for me.
By: betty watson on December 6, 2012
I found your station about a year ago while dialing in 91.5 WTBI. Being a senior citizen (70) I love the oldies music. I grew up with this (anyone remember dancing at Woods Lake?)
I live in Easley and the reception is great. However I work part time and travel in the western and northern parts of Pickens County. The reception is not too great there, wish it was. Any chance of uping the wattage? Keep up the good work. I tell all my friends about your station, many have started listing to it. Thanks, Richard Lee
By: Richard Lee on December 15, 2012
love the station, want to stream it please
By: lexie on December 16, 2012
I found your station while dialing in 91.5 WTBI during a drive thru the Anderson, SC area. Being a senior citizen (70), I love the oldies music -- I grew up with this stuff!
Hope there is some way I can stream your music live and listen to it when I'm not driving somewhere.
By: Rick Stanford on January 1, 2013
I got rid of XM radio after finding your station. You play the only music I enjoy listening to. Thank you!
By: Margaret Tate on January 3, 2013
I still can't get over how " GREAT " this Radio Station is...........
By: Bob Crane on January 11, 2013
Music has a quality of transending time. The music you play took me back to my childhood. Your playing songs I haven't heard in years and it's commercial free. Awesome station! Keep up the great work.
By: Larry Felts Jr. on January 20, 2013
I live in Athens Georgia and would be thrilled to be able to stream your station online. Can you give me any hope?
By: Debbie Crawford on February 25, 2013
My family and I really enjoy your station's format. NO DJ and No ads.
So, why are you putting junk like, A taste of the Beach, on in the afternoons?
We do not like Pat flapping his jaws or the non- beach music he plays!
My family and a lot of our friends have said that they put cd's in or turn to another station(or turn the radio off).
Please, take that garbage off and go back to what you do best- playing nothing but music ALL DAY!

By: THE original DIRTY OLD MAN on March 5, 2013
A friend introduced me to 91.9 WKRI in Cokesbury, and I love it!! I've been telling everyone about this great station and 60's music.. thank you for providing really GOOD music.
By: Rita Pigg on March 9, 2013
I was sad Beach Bob retired- then a friend put me on to 91.9FM. I listened yesterday afternoon and as I drove around town running errands, I got that "fall in love like rush", just bringing back old memories with each song- I especially loved the Beach Music late in the afternoon. Your show made my day and lifted my spirit! I am a loyal listener now-
By: Anne Moore on March 9, 2013
Thanks for adding Pat Patterson to your line-up. Was a regular listener before the addition of the Beach Music program. Broke the tuning knobs on our radios so that they STAY set on 91.1.
By: The Ellis Family on March 12, 2013
easley sc thanks for the station,some time the station has another station play in at the same time.
By: john newhouse on March 12, 2013
So..I can't wait to get out of work today to listen to the largetime beach music show and its not there????? Where did it go? Please tell me its going to continue...if not you have lost a listener!
By: Terri Murray on March 15, 2013
I agree with Terri. Love the beat of the Beach. Why was it not on today 3-15-13? Please tell me it will be back on Monday.
By: Anonymous on March 16, 2013
Found this station and keep my radio in the car on this station even if it doesn't come in good some days. Love it because of the oldies, No DJ & no ads. Why are you putting junk like, A taste of the Beach, on in the afternoons? We do not like Pat flapping his jaws or the non- beach music he plays! We now in the afternoons put on cd's in or turn to another station(or turn the radio off). Please, take that garbage off and go back to what you do best- playing nothing but music ALL DAY! Don't want to hear all that talking!!!!!
By: Glenda on March 22, 2013
I just found you while looking for another station. I am 70 and you guys play the old music I was raised on. Keep up the good work, and keep us seniors happy.
By: Ron of Mauldin on March 26, 2013
Great station with a wide variety of music. Thanks for playing positive, upbeat songs that carry me down memory lane.

Is it possible to get better reception in Spartanburg?
By: Johnny on June 5, 2013
Love the music... bringing back memories of the past, and lifting my spirit. Keep up the good work.
By: Jenn of Greenville on June 6, 2013
I was the first black dj/engineer in Brooklyn College back in 1980. I my mp3 is filled with everything from the Beatles to the Voices of East Harlem,the duet of James Brown and Luciano Pavorotti singing "It's a Man's World. From Pink and Prince to 2pac and Marvin Sapp. I would like to see how such a Great station is operated. I am a veteran and I am at home 24hrs,and terrifyingly bored. No pay, just a chance to see, and possibly be heard by your station. I am 58 and I have traveled to 48 states and 5 countries, I LOVE MUSIC. Thanks. Take Care. God Bless. Gene
By: eugene townsend on June 12, 2013
We love your station, listen to it constantly and sing along with all the familiar songs!!! What a treat! We just found your station recently. We didn't realize you'd been on the air since 2011. Please don't change a thing!!
By: Flo June 13 2013 on June 13, 2013
Thank you for having a family station that we can listen to out by our pool. It is also so nice not to have the commercials. You can always add more 70's!!!!
By: Ash Martin on July 2, 2013
Long time listener. This morning's music selections are outstanding! Your station fills a real void in this area and for this I thank you. Keep the oldies coming!

By: Chris Wideman on August 29, 2013
I am on assignment as a professional artist from Charleston.
We have lived in many different states and large cities, but
I have never heard a better mix of oldies than your station.
Whoever developed your format is the best at the job. I will attempt to find your station when I return to Charleston. Keep the faith, I wish there were more stations
like WKRI. My painting work at Wofford College is much more
enjoyable because of your music selection.
By: Frank deLoach on September 17, 2013
Love the oldies you play and beach music. i listen to you on 88.7 in bath sc.keep up the great tunes.
By: robbie griffin on September 17, 2013
Love the station. How can I listen to the station over the internet?
By: Danny Wilson on September 25, 2013
LOVE LOVE LOVE the station,,,, nothing else like it. I also would like to support your station by keeping it alive...bumper stickers etc. Perhaps the public could assist in helping with more power to get the buzz off the station?
By: CJMO on November 7, 2013
Do you have a playlist online. Heard a song, don't the name or artist, would like to find out. Sunday 11/10 around 7:35 pm. Thanks!
By: Ric on November 11, 2013
I heard a Gene Pitney song this morning at about 7:15 that I hadn't head played ON THE RADIO in 40 years! I have the CDs, but there's nothing like hearing it coming out of the radio! More Pitney! He had many great songs.
By: David Petrie on November 12, 2013
I live in Elberton, Ga. Accidentally came across your station while in my truck a couple of months ago. I can pick you up pretty good here but lose the signal as I get away from Elberton. I must say that this is the best oldies station that I have ever listened to. I would recommend your station to anyone that can pick it up and I will continue to listen as long as I can receive your signal. I have also enjoyed the Christmas music you have played. Thanks for the memories !!!
By: David Lovinggood on December 16, 2013
Where have you been, just ran across the channel. No more comprise on great music. I know Iam late to the party, but not going any where soon. Again thank you all for the outstanding programming.
By: E.Hornsby on December 17, 2013
Does anyone out there know who is playing the piano version of Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer? It sounds like Floyd Cramer but he never put out this song on a single version. I'd appreciate any information you can give me, come on listeners help me out on this. I love this station!!!!
By: Mickee Crisp on December 17, 2013
We just want to thank you for playing Christmas music for several days after Christmas. The other stations immediately stopped playing Christmas music after the 25th. We enjoy your station all the time, and the playing of Christmas music just confirmed that we have made a good choice of stations. We hope that your future includes higher wattage or a stronger signal.
By: R. Peeler on December 30, 2013
your music format is great. But since you do not stream,
do you sell CD's of your oldies collection?
By: George Maso on January 29, 2014

By: jerry magnuson on March 23, 2014
Great music. Just found your stations. I listen on 88.9 in Summerville. I'm here to stay. :))
By: Eddie Hamner on March 31, 2014
Received my stereo for Christmas. I took the stereo out of its box, plugged it in and viola instant beach music. My heart began beating faster and my feet began moving to the beat of the music. I love it!,,, takes me back to a beautiful time in my life. Charleston's Folly Beach was not the same after DOUBLE SHOT by the SWINGING MEDALLIONS hit the charts and The Shag became the new sensation. Thank you for the most perfect sound I have ever heard.
By: Kaye Funderburk on April 25, 2014
Just found out about your station this week. I love this music. I have been telling everyone I see about it. I am just having a Large time. Thanks.
By: Randall Spearman on May 15, 2014
I live in the Walterboro, SC area (Colleton County), and recently we began to 'pick up' your signal on 88.9 FM ...
As a former radio disc jockey myself (for many years in the 60's in Walterboro, SC and then in the early 70's in Atlanta, GA), and a former guitarist & singer in a rock band, and a current karaoke oldies singer, I would just like to say "great job" to your music programmer ... Your station plays the best of the oldies ... beach, soul, shag, dowop, British invasion, and so many of those forgotten soulful tunes that were so great 'back in the day'! I LOVE YOUR STATION! (AND PLEASE DON'T CHANGE THE MUSIC FORMAT)!
By: Mike on May 17, 2014
Just found your station at 88.9 the other day. We have been waiting a long time for an oldies station to return to the Summerville/Charleston area. I play in a band; we do lots of oldies and love the music from my youth. DON"T CHANGE THE FORMAT!
By: Carl Chinn on May 20, 2014
I live in Summerville and it is great finally having a good oldies station to listen to. Love the music and so happy to find your station. I LOVE YOUR STATION! (AND PLEASE DON'T CHANGE THE MUSIC FORMAT)!
By: Connie Chinn on May 20, 2014
Love the music you play, great station. On June 1st you played a song that went like this:
Baby sweet baby I love the way you call me baby
Who sang this song?
By: Tim Dover on June 2, 2014
ABSOLUTELY ONLY STATION WORTH MY TIME, AM LOVING IT, THANK YOU!! I WISH YOU MANY MANY MORE SUCCESSFUL YEARS ON THE AIR. A HAPPY LISTENER
By: s pitts on June 6, 2014
PLEASE DON'T CHANGE THE MUSIC FORMAT Love the early 50's (love it all)Do you have bumper stickers and Tshirts for sale yet hope you will soon want to help keep up the good music
By: Terry on June 6, 2014
Thank you for broadcasting such GREAT music! I hope you never change. I tell everyone I can and now most of them say they are already aware of it and already listen. Your audience must be bigger than you think. (I do hope you can increase the transmission power a little as I sometimes can't get WKRI clearly here in the Greenville area.)
By: doug robbins on June 25, 2014
LOVE! LOVE! teen of the 60's..Great music from "The Swamps of the ole' Santee!! to Charleston~~ Santee, SC...88.9
By: Joe- Pam Flood on June 27, 2014
The last time I heard music this good was years ago when two guys had a station in Ridgeland or Hilton Head. They played Beach, Boogie, and Blues. Was Pat one of them by any chance? I think this was about 15 years ago. Anyway, I listen to 88.9 in Summerville and live in Walterboro. Keep up the good work Patman, you're doing a great job!
By: Richard Smith on July 11, 2014
Best radio station! I really enjoy the oldies and beach music. The music takes me back to so many good memories. Love you WKRI !!!!
By: Sherry Maden Williams on July 19, 2014
My good fortune to find this Station. We need this music to stay alive. I was a DJ with WTMA TIGER RADIO here in Charleston SC. We had Doug Randall,George Wilson,Bobby Dee. We played top 40. Ah the good ole days.
Keep up the good work.
Rockin Rick Allen.(my radio name)
By: Fred Hart on August 17, 2014
Love your station and listen every day, but what happened the last couple of days? Can't pick you up. Sure hope it's only technical and that you'll be back!
By: Eddie on August 22, 2014
I know wkri 91.9 stopped broadcasting at 7 pm on 08/21/14, I don't know why, but I hope you will be back on soon and bring back pat patterson as well.. Best oldies station ever!!!
By: Brenda Parker on August 22, 2014
What happen to the station? Love this music, listen to it all the time. My day feels incomplete without it. Please come back, best station ever !
By: gary on August 23, 2014
If I could patronize your advertisers I would. Come back!
By: Ed Martin on August 23, 2014
WHERE ARE YOU? All I get is air
By: Dennis on August 23, 2014
Are you coming back or should I go ahead and sell my radio ?
By: Ted on August 24, 2014
Tried finding you all weekend from charleston to Greenville! What a horrible ride without your station! Where are you?
By: Susan on August 25, 2014
What happened? Are you coming back? Miss the oldies!
By: Lou on August 25, 2014
What has happened to the oldies? You were the only station
in our our area that played good music.
By: Tim on August 25, 2014
Thanks for 3 GREAT years of the BEST MUSIC!
By: Dann Scott on August 25, 2014
Very sorry to hear the format has changed. This was a big disappointment after we finally got a signal from the station again. All my friends, that I talked with about radio stations, said their radios were tuned to 91.9. Mine was one of them. I guess we will have to go back to streaming oldies from the internet.
By: Wesley Smith on August 25, 2014
SO SAD! We miss the oldies and Beat of the Beach! PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!
By: Libby on August 25, 2014
Now the people in the Greenwood - Clinton-Laurens area do not have an oldies station to listen to. Nothing against Christain music but we do have 3 or 4 Christain stations to listen to in our area. It was nice to be able to listen to decent oldies everyday over the last 3 years.
By: Roy on August 25, 2014
where in the wold would you rather be than with us we love ya. hurry back
By: mark from anderson on August 26, 2014
What am I going to listen to on my 5 o'clock drive home? I need Pat's picks at 5 back!!
By: Myrtle on August 26, 2014
With the new format. Good luck keeping your listeners. There was only one oldies station and several Christian stations. You have left many loyal listeners high and dry!
By: Captain on August 26, 2014
we have enjoyed oldies and gospel on Sunday...PLEASE BRING BACK for our enjoyment. we love Christian music but we have 2 or 3 Christian stations we can tune in already but do not have Oldies.
By: Donnie on August 26, 2014
What happened?! I listened to this station MON - FRI every morning & afternoon (Pat Patterson) but I don't care for this new format of music at all. You had something really unique and enjoyable before you changed it. Something that people could really talk about. Now it just sounds like Christian elevator music. So sad.
By: Dixie on August 26, 2014
What happened to the oldies music? Tell me you didn't change formats!!!! I had told a lot of friends about your oldies station and they too had become full time listeners. I need your music, I work from home and my radio was always on your station. I can't even think about my workday without your music. PLEASE BRING BACK THE OLDIES!!!
By: Bill on August 26, 2014
PLEASE BRING BACK the Oldies music!
By: Jimmy on August 26, 2014
What a shock! We have not listened to any other stations since we heard about your great oldies music format. A friend suggested 103.3 for oldies and the first song I heard this morning was Michael Jackson singing `Black Or White' (CLICK). Thankful for my huge selection of MP3 music but will miss Pat Patterson. Please bring back the Old music!
By: Charlie on August 26, 2014
LOVED your Oldies format! So sorry you are gone. My day seems incomplete without your music to enjoy. There is NO other station to compare or enjoy as much as I did yours!Thank you for 3 years of FABULOUS MUSIC!
By: Crazy Oma on August 26, 2014
what happen miss this oldies station played good southern gospel music on Sunday & i was shocked to hear what was on i had to turn it off bring it back please
By: SHERRY on August 26, 2014
TELL THIS TO YOUR ADVERTISERS--BOTH ME AND MY WIFE WILL NOT BE LISTENING TO YOUR NEW FORMAT--I HAVE PATRONIZED YOUR ADVERTISERS IN THE PAST-BUT NO LONGER!! THERE WERE NO OTHER OLDIES STATIONS ON THE DIAL. WE ARE ABOUT TO DELETE YOUR PRESET BUTTON--IT WAS NUMBER 1. PLEASE BRING BACK PAT PATTERSON, BEACH MUSIC AND THE OLDIES. DON'T MAKE US LISTEN TO TALK RADIO! DO YOU HEAR MY DOLLARS LEAVING YOUR ADVERTISERS???? THEY DON'T GET PAID--YOU DON'T GET PAID.
By: THE DAY THE MUSIC DIED on August 26, 2014
The station(s) were sold because the underwriting we had didn't generate enough money-we were losing money every month. We appreciate our listeners but couldn't afford to keep operating at such a loss. People in Eastern Laurens, Newberry and Southern Union county should be able to pick up Oldies 90.9(WNBK-Whitmire) and around Enoree, WUBK 88.1 (southern Spartanburg and Northen Laurens counties). The Oldies format is the same except no Pat Patterson and originates from WRBK 90.3 Richburg(Chester County) which can be heard in parts of Union, Laurens and Newberry counties as well on car radios. WRBK covers Chester, York, Lancaster, Fairfield and Kershaw counties as well. These stations will continue to program Oldies but currently don't stream although that remains a future possibility. Thanks for listening!!
By: Jeff on August 26, 2014
Thanks! Now Clinton has nothing to listen to. With all the people that tuned into WKRI it looks like you could have been able to get enough advertisers to support the station. Some commercials are better than no oldies at all!
By: Tim on August 26, 2014
I discovered last night something had gone wrong with my favorite oldies station! I just learned from postings on this page that WKRI is now airing a religious music format instead. I agree with others who have expressed their opinions on here - I like religious music as well, but there are so many of those stations on the air already!
Please bring the oldies format back ASAP!
By: Fred on August 26, 2014
Such a thing could only happen in an mid-term election year. Can I get an Amen to that?
By: Rev. Ike on August 26, 2014
Figures! I just acquired me a P.T. to Cruise about town in. I tried resetting the radio stations and couldn't get I91.9 to come in. John Boy and Billy may be okay, but come on! Just how much of that can one take in the mornings driving to work? I want my I91.9 WKRI back like it used to be!
By: P.T. Barnum on August 26, 2014
I am extremely disappointed! I finally found a station that played the music I liked, and it disappeared overnight. I like religious music just fine, but there are already plenty of religious stations. On the other hand, a station that plays the oldies I remember from my youth seem to be non-existent in South Carolina. What happened? If it's a matter of money, as it commonly is with ETV, I may be willing to make a cash donation to get the oldies back. I wonder how many people there are like me who want that Oldies Station back? At the same time, I doubt that most of them would ever realize they could give their opinions here. Well, I have to take 91.9 FM off my list of stations and try to find a replacement now. It is disappointing!
By: Jay on August 26, 2014
I just read Jeff's comments on August 26th above stating why the station(s) were sold. While I certainly can appreciate the economic reasons cited, WKRI was unique in the radio programming it offered listeners in Up State SC. Seems to me the ultra right wing southern religious political establishment is doing all it can to remove any kind of musical diversity or thought from radio programming in the South! Isn't broadcast radio still governed by the Federal Communications Commission? Seems to be me there should be some kind of US government grants that could be obtained to continue the radio programming WKRI had going on for those few years. Here's one listener hoping we can get it back in Up State SC!
By: Old Timer on August 26, 2014
best oldies station in area, loved Pat Patterson on the beach, cant believe you changed the format.
I want listen anymore
By: das on August 26, 2014
In response to Rev. Ike's comments above from yesterday, may I get on board this discussion by saying that Rev. Al (yours truly) and all of my constituents here in New York City and beyond are behind you in your efforts to regain those wonderful oldies that have gone silent with the loss of WKRI I-91.9 Thank you for this glorius opportunity to add my thoughts to this discussion, and good luck going forward!

I have listened to the oldies here ever since I found it, but never again. I"d like to tell the mental midget who saw fit to do this change, what I think!!! I hope something shuts the whole stinking bunch down. What a bunch of morons!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so very disappointed that the oldies format is gone. While I also like Christian music, I already had several options for that. Losing this station is like losing an old friend. ...just hoping to find another oldies station as good. (103.3 is a nice option but not as good as WKRI was.)

A TERRIBLE day when I turned on the radio and the oldies were gone..... :( No one else in the upstate plays them and NOW you don't!!!! WHY??

It was bound to happen. I did some research on this station earlier this year. It has been owned by
"Spirit" but was up for sale even as early as January, accd. to certain radio-finder websites. Besides, it overpowered a very,very good listener powered public radio station in Spindale NC with its simulcast on the 88.7 frequency out of Saluda. They had sewed up the whole region pretty tightly using these two stations together. The oldies format from the Cokesbury transmitter was pretty good, but I was never a fan of losing my ability to get WNCW out of Spindale on 88.7--Praise music as a genre is a narrow market and an acquired taste(as some here have agreed), and an all-too common occurrence at the left end of the FM dial. People should try listening instead to people blessed by the lord with real musical talent (jazz, blues, bluegrass, Americana). All my own opinion of course. JHC

Have been out of town. So sad you changed your format. You were the only oldies station around.
By: Anonymous on August 29, 2014
Wow, went out of town and came home to find my favorite station sold out. We are very disappointed! There's not another station like this one to hear the music we love. It's like losing a member of our family! Our friends would come over for a get together and hear the station and were fans instantly. So sad.

I am missing th oldies-you were a part of my day, every day.
Say it ain't so!!
By: Ken Hardwick on August 30, 2014
I'll just bet the late, great James Brown, the godfather of Soul, isn't one bit happy about this either! There is nothing on my radio dial now that even comes close to WKRI. Sad, so sad!

Bring bakc the oldies, it is way better than the music they play now days. I found your station about 2 years ago and ever since it was the only one I listened to. I agree with others, that christian music is good too, but we already have 2 stations that I know of that plays christian music, your station was the only one I found that plays oldies, or at least used too, so now I dont listen no more:-( I miss the oldies, you just can't beat them. PLEASE PUT BACK ON THE OLDIES. YOu'll gain all your listeners back!!! Thanks, Huge oldies Fan.

I want you to know the new format I AM NOT HAPPY WITH. The Religious music that's coming from your station now just makes me want to VOMIT. IT SUCKS, IT BITES, IT BLOWS! You really had a great station with the oldies, no one else had the oldies. I listened to it every day at work and would make my day so much better. But now I have to go to the classic rock stations. PLEASE PLEASE put the oldies format back on, you had a really AWESOME station then.
By: Dale Claxton on September 4, 2014
I am so sad that the oldies are GONE. Please tell me it is coming back. We listened every time we were in the car.
By: Ronnie w. Bishop on September 5, 2014
I hope the smart people sitting around the decision making table soon realize they made a great mistake about mid-August. Don't take my word for it...just read the comments. The "religious format" at present, is not wanted or viable. Get a life!. You went from a product, it seems everyone wants, to a format no one is seeking out. Come on. Own up to your poor decision making and get it right. Thank goodness for satellite radio.
By: Doc on September 6, 2014
I was so pleased when we had an oldies station in the area.Then you went and changed to a religious station.We had enough of those.Please bring back the oldies.There are no others anywhere around us.Wkri 91,9 should be an oldies station.
By: phillip williams on September 6, 2014
Guess "all really good things" come to an end. I was so so happy when 91.9 and Oldies came on the air...listen several hours every day...so clear, such good reception all over upstate....we have enough kooks espousing their hate and detain while claiming to be "chosen by God" to bring us their message...And yes it is their own kinky screwed up message or belief....not God's.....his would be love, charity, peace and comparison.....Please Lord, give us back the Oldies
By: Leonard on September 8, 2014
PLEASE BRING Back the oldies!!!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

Closest thing I can find now on my FM radio dial is Rock 101.1 in Upstate SC, and Fox 97.1 from Atlanta (which actually broadcasts from Gainesville). Definitely NOT the oldies that I listened to WKRI broadcasting, but certainly some good stuff from the 70s and 80s. It seems to me that broadcast TV is changing as well. Religious channel 16 now has 3 separate channels (all religious) and the new channel 51 is broadcasting all religious programming as well. I do listen to some of their programs but I think we should have more variety of programming on the free airways! Thanks for the opportunity to comment.
By: Roger That on September 8, 2014
Just hate that you've changed from the OLDIES. I'm in the far western corner of SC and there is no other station that plays the music I grew up with. I' also enjoyed listening to your station while traveling most of the upstate....made the time fly and put me in a great mood. I do not have satellite. Sure wish you would reconsider your format...really think there are enough religious stations in this area. Again, feel like I'm not the consumer anyone is interested in reaching.
By: Pegye on September 9, 2014
PLEASE bring back the oldies format. It WAS the best station in SC. Sad to see it go.
By: Joe W. on September 16, 2014
Me too! I'm sickened by the fact that the oldies format is gone. This was the ONLY oldies station I've ever listened to that didn't play the same old oldies over and over. We heard songs played on 91.9 that we haven't heard since being in high school in the 70's. And combined with beach music - perfect. Very disappointed the owners made this change. Please consider bringing it back - possibly with more advertising to generate more revenue.
By: T. Vickery on September 20, 2014
Looks as if everyone has given up on WKRI ever going back to an oldies format, and chances are it won't anytime soon. Last post before this one was on Sept. 19th. Well, it was good while it lasted, and here's hoping we'll have the golden oldies back again soon ... if not on WKRI then perhaps on another Upstate SC station.
By: Chuck Brown and the Great Pumpkin on October 29, 2014
HOLD ON! it'S comimG SOON!
By: Anonymous on November 11, 2014
Could "Anonymous" be referring to the recent change of format to classic rock at WRIX Radio in Anderson SC? That is indeed an earth shattering change for that station! Even so, it never will be the same without Matt and Bev! RIP Happy New Year to all who still miss the oldies at WKRI.
By: In The Year 2015 on January 2, 2015
YES! And it`s leaving before it had a chance, going the way of WKRI!
By: Anonymous on January 9, 2015
For the time being - Heard in the Anderson, SC area on WANS-AM 1280 and FM 107.7 mhz

Still wishing WKRI had it's oldies format! There is nothing around here yet that comes close to matching what it had to offer, especially with the beach and oldies format. It does seem (at least for the moment anyway) that there is less changing of formats between this and that radio station. Here's hoping that is a good sign!
