Listener Comments and Reviews

Hey there. Our best friends live at Lake Norman. When we're there we love listening to The Ride. We live in Oklahoma City and would love to listen to your station here. I am a member of I Heart Radio but don't see your station listed. Is there an app where I can get your station? Thanks for the great tunes!

I love this station but the signal has been fading out the last few weeks. Another station will start playing and then it will go back to 95.7. This is in my car, any thoughts?

Please stop playing Bruce Springsteen. He is an unamerican ungrateful jerk who claims to be embarrassed by America

Put the dial to 95.7, turn it up, and snap off the dial. This is the only station you need in the area. The music is great and the hosts have compelling voices and know their stuff. I dropped Satellite Radio because with 95.7, who needs anything else? (One small complaint. I know we're in Basketball country but .... kill the sports and rock on gentlemen (and ladies).)

I live up here in the NW corner of NC. LOVE your radio station where I tune in with an old 1970 stereo receiver I rebuilt and a 6 element beam antenna. At near 70 years old, I still rock and roll at high volume! Keep on Trucking!

I spent last week on Lake Norman (from Ohio). Weather was great, company was good and music was awesome. Hopefully I can get app and listen to it daily back in Ohio.

Love your format! Particularly playing the demos for some of the great songs we listen to. Heard "Roundabout " by "Yes" and James Taylor doing Carole Kings "You've got a friend" the other day. Great! As an old Rock and Roller from Scotland, back up band to the Moody Blues, Hollies, Bo Diddley in London and very influenced by The Beatles, I love your style. How do I get one of my own songs played?

I don’t know the DJ’s name that is on right now (2:49 pm Monday, 11/20/17) but she SUC£s. The music is fine but, what an idiot. Turning the dial during this time slot from now on.

I was listening to the ride today and heard a song that I thought was called freedom but I can't find it anywhere can someone possibly tell me the name or artist it was a great rock and roll song the ride grew up with the music

Send an email to me at the above address as I wrote previously for three Nobel Prizes since having been cured of Alzheimer's and have yet to contend but might have information of interest to your station and it's happy future. Thanks.

Would you be able to play coyote by joni mitchell once in a while?
By: Richard Murtaugh on October 4, 2020

I'm curious to know I've been trucking for 30 years I run through Charlotte a lot and I hear Tony all the time. however I was rolling across central Illinois making my way from Davenport to Indianapolis when I got around Champaign towards Danville Illinois. I heard Tony again on 94.9 K-Rock..I wonder how does that happen does he not on the drive or can you do double duty somehow but not be at the actual station I was just curious..

Is there anybody out there secretly hiding a recording of the voice of the late great 1970's FM deejay, (WRNA/WROQ) Calvin Walker?! Please share!
By: Gina S on December 31, 2020

I have been listening to the ride since day 1. I have since moved to southern indiana and I still listen by using the rides app on my phone. I hope this station never ends. I listen in my van, at work as well as at home. Best radio station ever
By: J.L. Kendall on April 20, 2021

Tony- I have been listening since the beginning. Back then I would lose you in the Mallard Creek valley on Harris Blvd. As a Woodstock era hippy from just north of NYC, I can testify that you and the team being the genuine articles. Being fully retired nowadays, I can just walk out of the wood shop and come back when the games are over. Otherwise it is 95.7 all the time. One sad comment though, as my contemporaries are passing on you music seems to be creeping slowly forward in time. Inevitable I guess, it is really hard to find big band music on the radio these days. Keep on rocking. I am the guy in the blue Beetle.

Need a playlist
By: Randy on June 30, 2021

I never turn the radio in my bedroom off. It's true. Between approximately 2:00 am and 6:am some really weird junk shows up. I sure hate to think your station cant do better on the play list. The Doors this morning gave me nightmares! I turn to two other stations more and more. you can't please everyone but there's thousands of classic rock songs being ignored. i have a lot more for you but I have to stop for now.

Your Englishman morning dj plays about 4 uk songs to 1 us song. Know he loves them but we started rock and roll.
By: Rodger on October 18, 2021

The other day Kimber gave a brief history of the Moody Blues “Forever Autumn” and then played the song. It gave you chills!
