Veteran radio station owner Chris Lash, of Whiplash Community Radio announces the creation of the “Cat Country Network”, featuring a classic country format from the 60’s to the 90’s. The network will also feature the launch of “Country Legends” magazine with articles, feature stories, rare pictures, from the four decades of artists the network stations will play, and live in studio concerts, and other shows in various theatres.
Recently Lash purchased three stations in the mid-west including KXCT in Goodland, KS, and others in Beaver, OK and Springfield, CO. All will feature the “Country Legends, Cat Country” format. Air talent on the station includes Lash, Rich “Smitty” Smith, Uncle Johnny, Paul Heil of the Gospel Greats and more!
89.1 Cat Country, KXCT debuts on Saturday, March 1st in Goodland, KS, and streams online at www.catcountry.org, and is in the process of creating its own phone app, but is listed already under the Tunein radio app. “Retirement in Florida did not suit me well. I lasted about three months, when this opportunity arose in the mid-west.” We’ll be adding another station to our mix soon, and will continue to grow in the right markets, stations and FM translators.” said Lash.
Much like the recent talked about new country format brands, Cat Country will focus on the classic country music. And Lash is serious about it. “Our network studio is a country music museum, from my personal collection. It features rare and one of a kind items from Johnny Cash, Elvis, Rascal Flatts, Little Jimmy Dickens, Ernest Tubb, Hank Williams Sr., and many more.” “There’s no other radio studio like it in the country. We are surrounded by the legends, while we sit behind the microphone.” added Lash.
The Cat Country Network is also available to any commercial or non commercial station in the USA, network fed, or live and local delivery. For more details reach out to Lash at [email protected]
