As WRSG'S Station Manager, I'd love to know what you like-and don't like-about the station! We are also on FACEBOOK ("Knights Radio 91.5 WRSG"). Please list the syndicated shows you listen to and your thoughts on them, as well as our growing variety of music offerings. I hope to hear from you soon!

I used to listen to WRSG a lot but I soon got tired of the same oldies that WRSG and nearly every 'oldies' station has on the playlist. With untold thousands of songs to choose from it seems that WRSG, like everyone else, sticks to the standards which were huge hits in their day but ignores the great songs that received a lot of play back in the day but which never achieved superhit status.

WRSG seems to be programmed so as not to offend the Board of Education who would have a $h|t fit if any shows were geared for the young people and for those with eclectic musical taste. Since it's a student station, why not play a couple hours or so of nothing but today's hits? I don't mean gangsta rap crap and the four letter word songs but there's a lot of good music being made today. I hate to tune in to a station and hear the latest hit by Adele and then have to listen to "Freebird", "Under The Boardwalk", and a couple of others before they play someone like Bruno Mars. Nearly every station in the area is either country or classic rock which might even be sprinkled with some modern stuff here and there as previously mentioned. WRSG could capture a lot more regular listeners if some slight changes are made in the programming.

That's about all the criticism I have but as for praise - it's good to have a 'local' station nearby even if I don't agree with the playlist choices.:o)

That is a great post...thank you for everything you said. I wish more people would take the time to respond. We are hoping to get thousands of songs we used to have on the other system eventually transferred over to SIMIAN. However, we play mainly 'wav' files for better quality, so many of those songs won't make the transition.

As to today's music, check out Friday nights, beginning at 5 p.m.!

Again, thanks for your post. WRSG is always in a state of transition, so your words are MUCH appreciated...THANK YOU!

I have to agree in part to what ExListener mentioned about the playlist lineup. I have flipped on WRSG to support the local channel & school but must admit that the music lineup on a regular basis is just not to my liking. I get that some people like the oldies & classic rock but as ExListener commented this is a student station & many of the young generation want today's hits. I would love to see this channel have a lineup of today's hits 7 days a week, 365 days per year.

Matt, this is a community radio station that happens to be housed in a high school. I set aside Friday nights for the kids (and young at heart). I DO have access to much of today's music, but as I can't work at the station full-time (I get paid nothing extra for work during the school year), and as there's only one class period set aside for any radio work, loading new music is next to impossible. I'll be honest...the kids don't pay the bills, but some very generous sponsors that treasure both the bluegrass and 50's-70s music DO. Students are much more prone to listen to internet and satellite radio, where the music is uncensored. We must be VERY careful with the music we air. What a teen deems appropriate, versus what the FCC deems appropriate can be very different. IF enough people want more of today's music from, say, 6 until 10 p.m., we can look at tweaking the playlist, plus add music such as alternative and other great music not currently aired. Hope this explains everything, and THANKS for writing....your comments are very much appreciated! Keep in touch!

If you are looking for NEW music mixed in with Lost Classics, Greg put me on Friday nights at 10pm.

The best I can describe my format is "Rhythmic Variety".
Listen & let me know what you think.

Please take the time to continue letting us know how to make WRSG a better station. I don't know of any other station that has our variety. Someone mentioned that we only play the hits. A cursory sample of our programming from hosts such as Frank Allen and Glenn Sauter suggests otherwise, as well as Tim Tilson ('The Hi-Fi party) and Dave the Rave's 'Relics and Rarities' show.

Our latest genre, alternative, certainly looks promising, as no fewer than two hosts present this exciting format that is virtually untouched by other local stations. We also have access to a site that provides us with alternative music, so expect that we will be adding these songs this year. Please also take the time to 'like' us on Facebook. Keep the comments coming!

Greg, love the bluegrass on the weekends, but some things just get drivin into the ground. The students do the school news but repeat it over and over during the day. Give us a little variety. How about giving the students a talk show, where folks can call in and discuss a hot topic of the day. Just read on here that Sistersville is trying to slap a tax on the Wells Inn. That could be a great hot topic for callers! You could call it "Fire On The Phone".
Maybe you could have a type of treasure hunt, where people have to search around Tyler County for a token of some sort, redeemable for a prize. You could give random clues throughout the week until its found. People would have to tune in all the time, not knowing when the next clue will hit the air. And, how about more on site coverage of events. Send the students on site with the mobile unit to cover festivals and other such events in the area.I can't speak for everyone, but those are some things I'd tune in for.

Good ideas, Ron. Again, since only one class period is given to the radio station, updating the news would be very difficult. The treasure hunt idea is great! I will talk to J.C. Kimble, who oversees the radio class, about a talk show idea to see if the students would be committed to such an effort. The students are the key as to how far we can take the station, since we don't have a full-time staffer who could coordinate such a task. I personally spend HOURS online each week setting everything up, PLUS go to the station during off-hours, such as late last night. Some things just can't be done remotely.

THANK YOU so much for responding! I'm glad you like the bluegrass offerings, and a couple of your ideas will certainly be strongly looked at for future implementation!

By the way, years ago, Judy Light and the late Larry Richie hosted a talk show. I'm trying to get Dena Brant to do the same. If anyone that is retired or has the time to commit would like to oversee students to launch a talk show, please get in touch with me!

There was a song played on your bluegrass gospel show on Sunday July 28, 2013 around 5-6pm and there was no title given for it but the lyrics were "if you want to get to Heaven, turn right and stay straight" My husband loved this song and I wondered if you could give me a title and artist for that song? Thank you.

I'll check this out ASAP and get you the information tomorrow! Could you narrow down the time that you heard it, as I'll listen to a show replay tomorrow evening. Is this the show by John Sentell? His show is on from 5-6 p.m. We have a Canadian-based Christian-country show from 6-7, so I'm thinking you're referring to one of our two WV-based shows. THANK YOU for writing!

He just knows it was in the time frame of 5-6pm...might have been just Christian music show...the host didn't say the title, just played the song...unsure of title just that part of the lyrics. We play country, gospel & a little bluegrass in our band and he would like to learn this song because of the message it carried...if we can find the song after you get us the title &/or singer information. Thank you.

This is the first response from host John Sentell:

"The one that pop's out at me was back in June, on Saturday it was June 21 then it played the next week, I ended the show a song called "Get right or get left" from a family band called The Bankesters."

Mr. Sentell wasn't sure of the key words, so I sent them back to him. He wasn't sure wre in the show you may have heard this partial lyric, so he wanted to listen again to last week's show.

He would really appreciate your emailing him! Google 'John Sentell'
for his show's website. No doubt, that will keep him motivated to find what you wish! GOOD LUCK, and thanks for your support!

Check out the live performance YouTube video of The Bankesters - "Get Right Or Get Left" and see if that's the song in question. It's not the best sound quality but it's the best I could find:



Greg, back in 2012, I said I was an Ex-Listener but I've still tuned in from time to time. Yesterday afternoon I tuned in as I was leaving Middlebourne and in a few minutes WRSG played "Black Velvet" by Alannah Myles. That was a pleasant surprise because I hadn't heard that on radio for ages! That's enough to get me tuning in more often. A tip of the hat to the young lady who read the promos, too. She had a great radio voice, enunciated clearly and put emphasis on words where it was needed - very professional like.

Thanks for all the time you generously give & hard work (mental & physical) you do to keep the station going.

You're welcome, Ex-Listener. You're very kind. I am very passionate about WRSG being the most unique station you will ever find. Because of the "Summer Knights Radio Show," we can really spotlight students that are as talented as the young lady you heard. It was a pleasure to work with ALL the students.

By the way, if it's a song that charted in the last 60 years, we should have it. Please keep spreading the word about KNIGHTS RADIO, WRSG!
