  1. The Facebook page for WZVA shows @1035ThunderCountry. Is that new?

    • No. That’s a remnant from a previous format that was never updated.

      • Why update your station’s Facebook page? That’s not important! (insert sarcasm)

        • All part of the “What, why and how come” aspect of running a station. Big things are coming…….;) Thanks
