I really love WKYR, but I really wish they would not play that programming that comes from wherever. I understand that the radio station probably can not afford to hire a dj for the whole 24 hours, but at least from 6am to 6pm Monday thru Saturday it would be nice to have local people there so we could get updates on weather, and any other information we may need. (like the situation last week with the threats). It would just be nice, since the radio station is the only one most businesses in B-ville can pick up,to have a live person on during the day.

On the Sunday night programming she is a total bitch when a child calls in to request a song. She is also meddling in other peoples business instead of taking the requests and playing them.

I think that a community plays some part in the success/failure of a radio station. It does not fall on the shoulders of the owner entirely. It seemed the city of Edmonton supported a lot of community efforts promoted by the 99.1 when WKYR's owner worked there.

What is different about the programs on now than when Ray was in charge?

I worked there before she came, and was there a few months after she came. She started screwing up the station FROM DAY ONE.
If you aren't sympathetic to her beliefs, she's out to get you "cause you're wrong."
I could tell you plenty of stories, but out of respect for all mankind, I won't on a public forum. All I will say is that she has a terrible reputation in the radio community. You just call any other station around and see for yourself.

Ok, so she is the boss and has her own approach to things. But what is different about the programs on now than when Ray was in charge? I'd like to know what programming changes have been made besides adding "Talk Around Town" and "Sentimental Sunday".

In my opinion,they need to go after all the local news before they tell whatever happened in Lexington or Ten Buck Two. Whenever they do get around to telling the local news, it's already old
so instead of just getting the news off of the computer or where ever they get it they ought to call the local law enforce
ment, fire dept. or whoever would have the info and for what may have happened after they go off the air each day and get an update to let us know about local happenings instead of some jerk that we never heard of getting arrested in Eastern Ky. for DUI. Who care unless, the jerk was from here?

Every thing was fine with WKYR until she came. She is in love with her own voice and a konw it all to. You can go any where and hear how she has screwed WKYR up. She needs to change or pack her bags.

The others ones was probley glad to she her go. She says she will play a song for you she does not. She will always try her best to mess things up. A 8 year old could do better than her. But you got on thing wright no one can do what she does. But no one else would fuck it up as much as she does. She knows she is lossing listeners that why they have the dailey give away to keep you listening.

you big igno the give away was before she came along and if you think you can do what she and the others up there do,then go ahead and give it a shot cause by the way you talk on here you would not last to even do the talk around town,,after you got done you would be the jke around town because with a nasty mouth like yours noone would want you advertising for a dog show,,,so if you think you can do her job then don't hind behind that fake name and go ask her...By the way if you don't like that station there are plenty more for you to listen to don't you think? just like a pair of pants if you don't like the first pair you try on then try on another and then you might decide to get the first pair,,,,RIGHT!!!!!!

I totally agree with you about the news. No one here in Cumberland County cares about what has happened all over the state of Ky. but Donnie Ray will start to tell something and make it sound like it happened in Burkesville and then you stop what you are doing to listen and it ends up being someone we here in the county have never heard of. They tell me the reason they tell news like that is because they don't have any news to tell from Burkesville and Cumberland County, that the local law enforcements or fire departments won't CALL them and tell them what is going on in the county. My question is this, Why can't they get in touch with those officials and find out what has gone on, and if they don't have any local news then just say we have no news and shut up. There have been several deaths since last week, but no one could hear the death announcements at the regular news time, cuz it was on the weekend and during a holiday and no one works regularly over there during either of those times. Maybe someone should send these comments to Jessee and Donnie Ray and maybe some changes could be made.

I would like to hear the local news first, then the state news. I do care about the news in other places, but the focus should be here first. I think everyone at the radio station is doing a good job with what they have. Any time you need something to get on talk around town, they are always willing to get it work it in. There have been numerous times they featured fundraisers, local events, ball team members, etc., and I think that is a great service for our town. It would be a shame to lose the station.
We should support them and be more understanding rather than be critical of them. I do appreciate the broadcast of the ballgames. Some people can't go to the game and it is nice to listen I would like to see a more variety of music played but that could be worked on. Good work Jessee and Donnie Ray. Keep it up

You guys are lucky Burkesville even has a radio station. I know for a fact Jessie has to hustle everyday for ads and if she wasnt there you wouldnt have a station. Think of it Burkesville is a dying town and once you lose something here it never comes back. Be proud of what we have no matter what it is because it is hard to bring a spark back to a dying town!

I grew up with WKYR and all was fine till Jessee came.She started screwing up the station FROM DAY ONE.I have been on WKYR in the past. I admit it is a hard job to do. But Jessee is never wrong, in her eyes she can do no wrong and you will be the one wrong. Just can't work with someone like that. I have nothing aginest WKYR it's self.
