I love this station, I listen to it everyday.
By: Denise on October 13, 2016
Absolute BEST station in the tri state area! Been a loyal listener logging 12-14 hours a day and love every minute of the programming! Tony D's shows are amazing as are Denis Franks, Dave Marthouse, and the rest of the DJs! Look forward to putting the radio in every day!

Can you play The Last Farewell by Roger Whitaker more.
By: MIke on September 25, 2017
love the station, my kind of music . I love country more than oldies but I'll take any thing that is not crazy or rap. just wish you had a broader distance scope...The reception starts fading 12 miles from the college.
By: renate sweatt on October 2, 2017
Love what you are doing!
How about more oldies instrumentals:
Duane Eddy, ghost riders in the sky
The Champs, tequila
Sandy Heldon, teen beat
The shows, Apache
The ventures, walk don't run
Theme from the magnificent seven

First I love your radio station, Second, My name is Tony Krucinski and I play in the Snake Oil Willie Band. We are a local band and have viral hit out on You tube, I don`t look good naked anymore and Gift Card. It would be great if we could get some radio play. You could contact me at 973-903-4294. or my email tony@snakeoilwillie,com. Thanks, Tony
By: Tony Krucinski on December 5, 2017
My greatest applause to WSBK I now only listen to the radio. Tony D's engineered one Hell of a Radio station. Oldies, Country, Big Band and Polkas. I'm sure your station has attracted a wider audience than predicted. Hat's Off To Everyone Who Has Brought Back Great Radio.
By: Joseph Heatter on February 5, 2018
I accidentally found this station today looking for something good to listen to. I’ve been trying to find an oldies station for a while and hit the jackpot today!
By: Karen on March 10, 2018
Really Great to hear from all of you on how much you like the radio station. Thanks for listening and spread the word. You can email us direct at email@example.com
By: WRSK on March 25, 2018
Top notch! Best variety of any oldies station I’ve ever heard....even better than Sirius satellite radio. Please don’t go anywhere...keep up the great work. Always wishing for better reception here in Warren County. Would love to see you guys streaming online. The area needs this great station. Finally someone realizes there is a viable market for this music.
By: Listener in Blairstown NJ on April 5, 2018
Heard Tony D playing the songs that are timelessly
wonderful, and bring a smile to your face and a shimmy to your hips!!
He is the best of what was and what is to come.proud to be on his station as a sponsor

I just found your radio station by accident the other day! Fantastic music station! You play all songs from my era. Keep on playing, I love it!
By: Jane E Vaughan on May 10, 2018
Finally, and oldies station in our own back yard. Great eclectic mix. I have a classic car and its fun listening to WRSK while I'm cruising. I put out a general e-mail to the guys in my car club to tune into 97.5
By: Jack on May 12, 2018
I tuned you in on my way home from The Chatterbox last evening. You had a very good Saturday night show going on strong. It was nice to hear some of the tunes I play on my web station coming out of an actual antenna type radio station. I'm sorry but, I forget the DJ's name. He was sure going to town. I don't think I could keep up with him. My web station features all kinds of music from the 20's through the 70's plus I do a lot of spoken word stories. I'm getting so tired of hearing nothing but politics and arguing all over the AM band so, it was good to hear a fun station for a welcome change. If I can assist you in any way, don't hesitate to email or call. Oh, I'm not a robot but, many mornings I feel like I'm in dire need of oiling.
By: Doc South on May 13, 2018
I just posted a nice complimentary video about your Saturday Night Show on my Facebook page. Search Doc South to view it. I think you'll like it. Feel free to share it if you think it will help you.
By: Doc South on May 13, 2018
Please offer online streaming of your station. First its very difficult to get good quality AM or FM radio in the Allamuchy area and, aside from a clock radio or listening in the car, no other way to hear your station!
By: Wendy on May 14, 2018
Love, love, love the Sunday morning polkas! It brings me back to when I was a child; gives me that warm fuzzy feeling. Mom, dad, aunts, uncles, etc. dancing and having a fantastic time, everyone was so happy then. Days long gone.
By: Patty on May 27, 2018
We moved from Bergen County almost five years ago. IMO, there's nothing like WRSK down there. Love the format. Recently I've noticed the hosts have been identifying the songs by artist(s) and year -- good move. There were/still are quite a few songs for which I knew/know almost all the lyrics but could not identify the artists. Drove this Type A guy nuts. Now it's one less issue I have to deal with.
By: O'burg Bob on June 5, 2018
We LOVE the station and play it all day everyday her in our office!
Can you post on the SCCC/WRSK web page what your radio coverage footprint is?
By: Omni on August 1, 2018
WRSK LP does not have a website or stream at the moment but will in the near future from a link on sussex.edu the college website and will also be heard on the college TV cable Service Electric channel. For more information and signal coverage for any station go to www.radio-locator.com and put in the call letters and click on view coverage map. Thanks for all your great comments and for listening to Cruzin Oldies.
By: WRSK on August 3, 2018
Thank you Tony, Dave, Dennis, Al, Pat, Kaitlyn, Emily and all the rest of the team who make Crusin Oldies such a great station! Listening to it really brightens my days and nights!
By: Karen on August 14, 2018
I love this radio station! I recently found it while searching on the car radio. Instantly put me in a good mood! And am especially happy that I can get reception in my house also. Please keep Cruzin Oldies on the air! We were in dire need for this kind of station/music in this area.
By: Joan on August 15, 2018
Listen all the time and love it. I know I heard your DJ's saying if you have a community event just email us @: Herein the problem, tried to find the email, but happily found this. Could you give me the proper email address to notify? Here's the info.

By: WRSk on August 18, 2018
Dennis Frank’s Sunday morning show is great! I’m not really into polka music but I really enjoy his show! Looking forward to the Big Band show with Tony Dee tonight!
By: Karen on August 19, 2018
Great mix of music with a local flair! I especially enjoy the Sunday shows. The morning polka reminds me of the old days of radio in Sussex County. then country oldies (fantastic!) followed by doo wop and then the big band/vintage pop is tops! The weekday programming is also wonderful, great mix of oldies that goes way beyond the usual, sprinkling in some forgotten gems. Best wishes to Tony D, Dave, Dennis, Al, Pat, Kaitlyn, Emily and all who put on this wonderful soundtrack for us.
By: Rick Bolger on August 21, 2018
I love the music you play and listen a lot, esp in the morning. I wonder, however, how you chose your news service. Has anyone at the station researched the political agenda of this outfit? It does not sound like a neutral media service to me, but very slanted. If you are financed by public funds, you should ensure that the news you present should not be colored by a particular political party's views.
By: D Morrow on August 22, 2018
Mr. Morrow glad you like our music, hopefully it gets your day off to a happy start and end. As far as are hourly news and twice in the morning we have no control of what they report. Please feel free to contact USA radio at www.usaradio.com and express your views. Most news services have there own political views and are slanted to some degree as are even your own personal friends. Other stations in the Sussex County area don't even have news around the clock.. With time we will also be adding local news with student reporters. To have a news service like CNN/FOX/ABC/CBS/NBC is very expensive and for now USA worked out best for the station. I hope you Keep Cruzin with us regardless and thanks for your post.
By: WRSK on August 30, 2018
To respond to Mr. Morrow: USA Radio is a Republican organization. Sussex County is overwhelmingly Republican, so this is hardly a surprise. I listen to WRSK every day, and I LOVE IT, but the moment USA Radio news comes on, I change the channel. I refuse to listen to incessant praise for Trump, and how great he is.
And while I LOVE WRSK, I’m not impressed with the disc jockey robots, Al Gordon and Pat Appleton. Appleson pretends he is in Newton (“my fellow Newtonians”), and he is really in North Carolina. I have no idea where Gordon is. Both of these robots say the exact, same, word-for-word sentences every day, and are clearly not behind a microphone at WRSK. Dennis Frank is a real human, I think. He is very good to listen to, and I want to believe he is not a robot.
By: Wm. Pratt on September 1, 2018
As I said, I listen to WRSK every day, and I love it. While it is obvious that Al Gordon and Pat Appleson are not real DJ’s in Newton, Dennis Frank is a joy to listen to. When he introduces a song, he gives the year (which I really enjoy!), and a bit of background about the singer or group. He is great to listen to! Most days he isn’t a robot, but I think some days he is. But, when he comes on at the top of the hour, he says “It’s a few minutes after the hour of 10, 11, 12, whatever. If he’s a real person behind a microphone in Newton, he ought to look at a clock and give the EXACT time, not “a few minutes.”
By: Wm. Pratt on September 1, 2018
I love Crusin Oldies 97.5! Best station to come to Sussex County! I like the variety of oldies music you offer! I especially like Tony D’s Sunday night Big Band Show from 8 PM to midnight. I look forward to it every week!
By: Kali on September 3, 2018
What a breath of fresh air with listening to WRSK LP! Had the good fortune to have met Doo Wop Dave, Dennis and Tony in August 2017 at the vintage vinyl record shop on Spring Street in Newton. Love the music as it brings back so many memories! Continued success with the station! Hope it will someday be available streaming on the internet some day! Cheers!
By: Bill Priester on September 24, 2018
Hey, This is Tony from the Snake Oil Willie Band and I just heard my song ( I don`t look good naked anymore) on the radio Sunday, Oct 14 at about 5:50. Thanks so much for putting us in the rotation on Sundays.
By: tony on October 14, 2018
I also love the format and the alternative it gives us in Sussex county to the limited choices in broadcast music. I also agree with previous comments about the bias news coverage. I don't consider what I've been hearing every halve hour in the morning news, I'd call it a campaign commercial at best. Maybe NPR could work for you. While no news is perfect when it comes to bias, I find they are the most balanced.
By: Mike Watson on November 12, 2018
Great to hear a station that mixes in the Christmas songs with its regular music. I live in Andover and love your station. Merry Christmas to everyone and keep us Rockin @ Rollin.
By: Pete on December 23, 2018
Any idea about when you will be streaming? Miss you guys so much
By: Paula K. on January 7, 2019
Love your station! It's on in the car and it comes through my earbuds when I am running.
The oldies music is great, and I have heard interesting interviews on weekend mornings.
Is there a web address where listeners can view your playlist? I sometimes want to look up lyrics.
By: Angela Weigle on January 14, 2019
LOVE YOUR MUSIC! Don't ever change!
By: Roger Willco on January 20, 2019
I stumbled acros this station when searching fto listen to ANYTHING ELSE but overplayed pop and rock and even overplayed songs on Christian radio. I now love this station because it brings back childhood and teenage memories. You have such a great mix of songs and what seems like a never ending variety......I am hooked now on WRSK!!! i'm also glad it comes in clearly on my portable radio and my in home stereo... Plus.i can listen to your station in my car all the way to work from Newton to Hampton, through most of Sparta and from Hampton to Hamburg......Love it! Love it! Love it!
By: Danielle Petrone on January 29, 2019
This station is great. I especially like Tony Dee's show on Sunday nights. No other station plays these great tunes except WRSK. I belong to a classic car club and it's great listening to
the songs from the 50's through mid 70's. Thank you
By: Jack on February 4, 2019
I love Crusin Oldies. I love how on Sundays they play polkas, country music, do wops, and big band swing music. My favorite musician is Earl Scruggs. I love how Crusin Oldies played Christmas music on new years eve. I love The Beach Boys. I've heard many great Beach Boys songs and many great Elvis Presley songs on Crusin Oldies. I've also heard some good songs like Yacky Yak, Vacation, Who Let The Dogs Out, Lollypop, Blinded By The Light, and Don't Worry Be Happy just to name a few. I listen to this station on my stereo in my bedroom.
By: Brittany on February 10, 2019
Great local station however........STAY THE HELL OUT OF POLITICS!. Recently, the guy who runs the morning program took a cheap shot at Rush Limbaugh. Very inappropriate especially when he misrepresented what Limbaugh said. STAY THE HELL OUT OF POLITICS.
By: Andy Sapol on February 11, 2019
My wife Karen always has this station on when she’s at home. I’m a recent retiree, so I was never home to listen to it. My hobby is restoring cars from the 70’s and early 80’s. This past summer I was able to participate in Cruzin Night at the Chatterbox. Doc South was the DJ and was playing oldies which brought back many happy memories. When I got home that night I realized that what was being played on WRSK. Well I’ve been a listener ever since. Karen is a bit on a Nightbird and likes the Tony D show, especially Sunday night. We both listen to Dennis Frank Sunday morning and sometimes we request a song which he plays. Now when I’m working at home with my “oldie automobiles”, Dennis Frank is there playing a great mix of songs which helps me make what I’m doing more pleasant. I really enjoy the station and want to thank all those who make it possible. Keep up the good work.
By: Gerald Kastner on February 12, 2019
Yoooo!! I soooo love this station in Green two errryday! I wish you guys would play more old school commercials like they did on the 1360 a.m station did way back those are great! Dennis Frank is great his voice reminds me of “SolRosenberg” a character from the famous phone prankers..the Jerky Boys..!lol I like especially the Saturday night show which I’m always on time from work for..I’m only 40 but I grew up listening to some of this w my Mom so..lol Thank you and keep up the great work
By: Pat Murphy on February 23, 2019
Hello. Happy Sunday. Can you please play O Bla De, Oh Bla Da by the Beatles?
By: Caroline Purdon on March 3, 2019
Any song requests should be sent to email@example.com or leave your email so we can tell you when we would play your song. Thanks Caroline and Everyone. We all are very happy you love Cruzin Oldies 97.5.

WERE is DENNIS FRANK
By: HARRY P DEMOTT SR on March 6, 2019
Where is Dennis Frank? My husband and I really enjoyed his shows and didn't know why he was no longer on the station.
By: Tag on March 12, 2019
Dennis decided he didn't want to do it anymore. He was retired and decided to really retire. We hope someday he decides to come back and do a show again even if it's once a week.
You can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org I'm sure he would love to hear from you.Dennis was really great and we miss him on the station like so many other listeners like you.
By: WRSK Radio on March 13, 2019
I had the great pleasure of talking to Tony Dee on ham radio today. Tony was at our radio repeater site and was inspecting his own radio equipment in the communications shack and needed to get a radio check from another operator. I complied and we chatted about the various FM radio stations in the County. I kidded with Tony about the need for a little better coverage. Its a great radio station and really needs to be heard by listeners in adjacent counties. I really wanted to talk to him at great depth about WRSKs format and the professional quality that came from their radio station. We talked about the "Chatterbox" and how you could hear the RSK tunes at the car shows. Tony and the staff should be very proud of the job they've done and continue to do. I've talked to alot of people and have got them to tune in Sunday morning with the Polka music. Keep up the GREAT job! William Oliver
By: William Oliver on April 17, 2019
I listen to WRSK all the time in the car, but I am missing Dennis Frank. Not only was he an announcer who brought his knowledge of the oldies to the station, but he also chose great, fun music. Now it seems that all we hear is easy listening stuff. I used to recommend the station to my friends, but no longer. Sadly, WRSK has become boring. 😑
By: Angela on April 17, 2019
Lori and myself would like to wish Tony Dee and his family a HAPPY EASTER and Happy Easter to all of the WRSK listeners. W2LV -the Sussex Co. Ham Radio club enjoys WRSK. See you on 147.300 soon i hope. "KEEP WRSK GREAT". Enjoy Easter Day----Regards and '73 William KD2MZC
By: William Oliver on April 21, 2019
Angela WRSK is not a Easy Listening station. At 11PM each weeknight for 1 hour we play Jazz and on the weekends at midnight for 1 hour we do play Easy Listening music. Sunday is the only full day that we play different music starting at 9 am with Polkas followed by Country music at noon then Doo Wops at 6PM followed by Big band music at 8PM till midnight. As a low power community college station we must provide other sources of entertainment from our main format including talk shows. Monday thru Friday we play what we brand as Cruzin Oldies music from the 50's 60's 70's and some 80's. Saturday we play Cruzin Oldies till 6PM then we have a Dance party with dance music and oldies mixed together. We also offer Gospel music and a local church service early Sunday morning starting at 5AM. We hope that you and your friends tune us back in again someday. As far as Dennis Frank he decided to retired and spend more time with his family and we miss him too.
By: WRSK on May 6, 2019
I love your station. I would really love it if you would play some more Sammy Davis Jr. or Dean Martin
By: Alejandro Villegas Rodriguez on May 22, 2019
I greatly enjoyed the special “30 Year History Of Radio Show” that Tony Dee put together. It brought back many fond memories of mine from the 70’s. All the programs from WRSK are listened to and appreciated.
By: Gerald Kastner on May 26, 2019
Since your station has gone air I always listen to it whenever I'm in the car or working around the house. It's replaced my Ipod for music entertainment, especially while I'm on the mower for a couple of hours each week. Nothing better than your programming. Best music ever made!
By: Rick Antero on June 12, 2019
Enjoy your station everyday driving to and from work. Great music and like the hourly news that no other station has in the area.

Listening to Tony Dee tonight and I heard my friend Tom Austin of the Royal Teens. Tom also co-authored "Another Season: A Jersey Boy's Journey With The Four Seasons And Beyond" - The Memoirs of Charlie Calello, the most prolific producer/arranger in Pop Music History. Tom and I will be at The Skylands Stadium in Augusta this Sunday, September 29th at the American Truck Historical Society's Antique Truck Show displaying our trucks and selling copies of Another Season.
By: Tom Mulligan on September 22, 2019
Cant believe they are now announcing local arrests on the station alongside national news. Can totally believe Sparta PD would go so far out of their way to publicly shame people ON TOP of the criminal prosecution they are already facing as to take out radio ads. Why do I need to hear about a local woman stealing a coat? If I wanted to see people put in the "public stockade" I would pick up the herald...
