Hi, I broadcast a country show on internet radio ( www.radiogetswild.com ) and just need some input on what the main stream of tunes should be, more modern or more classic,or an even mix of both . Your Input is really helpful. Thank You Gene aka DJ Doublem RGW Broadcaster "Decade 5 Country" sat/sun 9pm to 1am PST on www.radiogetswild.com

Growing up, I had the privilege of listening to several of my mothers 8 track tapes. Most of which, were artists like Don Williams, Dolly Parton, Conway Twitty and so on and so forth. I grew accustom to country music and I enjoy a good mixture of both. My biggest complaint with any radio station is song repetition. I can hear the same song 3 times in a single hour and, I find it quite difficult to stay tuned in after a while. So, I would say a good variety, regardless of your decision to integrate classic and modern country music, should make your listeners very happy. I'll be sure to tune in.

I like classic country from Bluegrass,HonkyTonk right through to Western Swing. But my all time favourite is Rockabilly. which may seem unusual seeing I'm a Brit:)

My parents listened to the old time country so I grew up with that. but if I had to choose, I would choose the new country because I think it reflects my generation of country better. I love some of the new singers like Keith Urban. Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. They are all good.

Yes, They are all good, and some of the new country artists still like to keep some of the old sound in their songs

I enjoy both of them about equally, but I do think that there are some pretty horrible country music artists that have come out lately that aren't serious about what they are doing and it is clear by the music that they put out. You really can't go wrong with classic country.

I couldn't agree with you more hcromer. In my view in order to be a classing country singer you gotta have that "twang" that goes with it. There are a few of the new singers, like Randy Travis, who still have it and as long as they around good country will not die.

I agree, there are a few songs out there that I'm not sure what gener they should be in, but they find their way in to the country group, I do play them too, cause there are listeners that do like them too

I LOVE it all. I would say I would like to hear a mixture of both. I love the oldies, but would like a few new ones mixed in. Or the other way around. I guess I just can't decide which one I love the most....

That is my thought too a mix of both adds a bit of live to what you are listening to, most stations get stuck in a rut, and you end up hearing the same track/song over 10 times in a day. To me that turns listeners away cause they get tired of hearing them over and over

I love to listen to both ...when a station just plays the newer songs it begins to get old ,but if they throw in a few of the oldies to stir things up a bit thats when its a radio station with pizazzz...
