    I have been a listner for many years, but due to poor content am going elswhere. Very little local things of interest, just playing music all the time. Seems station has been taken over by lou hannon, i hear her whining voice all the time. Really need some new presenters on this station urgently, current presenters very boring, say a few words, the play a song. Needs some presenters that can engage their audience, sooner the better, why should we pay through our license for this lack lustre performance?

    Being an ex-patriot from Southampton, it is so nice to hear all the old names and places. I am 84 and in a nursing home not too far from Toronto Canada. A lifetime Saints supporter, it is nice to hear all the news from St. Marys. Your music and talk shows are top-notch as well, keep up the excellent broadcasting.

    I found this station to be one of the best in the south for music and local information from road reports to events in this area, also I must mention the weather reports.
