Rumour has it that 95.1 FM is closing down
the station is up for sale and with the new year coming on
the station is not making money
I have a friend that is friends with the Owner and he cannot spend the money on the stations any more!!

Is that the station that is in YH and has "the best mix in the sticks" logo? In any case it's sad news because somebodies joy in running a business is lost and people are out of work. Listeners lose out too.

Fingers crossed that the rumors are wrong,

Did you address it with the station owner? Do you have proof positive that the owner knew and condoned that she went out like that?

What did YOU do to help a fellow businessman? That is IF this station closing story is a truth and not a rumor. How would your dreams be shattered if you had no choice but to close your business and lay people off?

As for not liking the music. Don't listen.

If we are talking about the best mix in the sticks station I can tell you that in the summer of 2007 I interviewed there for a job opening. Nobody was rude to me and it was very easy to be at ease talking with the ladies conducting the interview. Had they of hired me it would have been a great joy working with them. God had other plans and blessed me with a job in Hayesville.

I think it is the best radio station I have ever heard in the stix. If that lady comes by my business we can probably work out a deal.

you Guys have no clue what it takes to run a radio station and what is really going on behind the scenes! not only does the owner own 95.1 fm he also owns 1400 am in copperhill and 770 am in young harris
people have to know how to do community radio and if your not on your toes you loose money
also Best mix in the Stix is not the only show in town anymore!! even WPPL in blue ridge is loosing money these days

I guess most of the 95.1 people posting are etc customers I just see that as unusual. I still have hopes that 95.1 will stay in their current format. I would not mind their playlist being modifies but I do not believe their mix is aimed at my age group, but I still enjoy most of their product.

I don't see why there is all of this fuss and accusations about how the station is doing business. Hellooooo People! The whole country is going out of business! The best thing we can do is support eachother, not try to rip eachother & eachothers' businesses apart.

This station does not stink! They play the best classics and some newer hits. If you can't enjoy the classics the there is something wrong. I have an appreciation for this station.
