When we left Miami, the radio station there was playing the likes of Melloncamp, Buffett, etc. I didn't really mind Buffett, but don't like Melloncamp. It seemed like when Bob McKay (the PD) left to go to their sister station in Philly (thanks for 'stealing' my favorite PD, Trish!
) things started to go downhill in the variety of music they played and especially the amount of Vince that they played. When Bob McKay was there and Vince released "The Key" they actually played some of the songs from that album (not very often, but you did and *could* hear the songs!)
The station here in TX plays about the best variety of country music that I've heard anywhere (except for WSM). They play older artists, current artists, older songs, newer songs, and one of my favorite shows (when I actually get to listen to the radio) is Lunchtime Classics. They play the classics from the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s. 1990s isn't considered 'classic country' to them, like it is to the Miami station and other stations around the country. Then on Saturday nights they have what's called "Texas Saturday Night" where they play all Texas artists. You'll hear any and every country artist who's from Texas...major artists, indy artists, Texas based artists...even people you've never heard of because they don't record for a Nashville label. The station is Waco 100
and they do broadcast online in case anyone is interested in taking a listen. When we came home from the ER today (my grandmother tripped and fell at the new house) the station was playing Clay Walker's "Chain of Love." I haven't heard that one in ages and it's one of my favorites of his.
