  1. This is after a failed attempt with country music before on this station ,then a flip to the urban that moved to 1520khz to die after basically trying to kill most of his stations in that town with dead air.

  2. Why Cat Country? What’s the significance of the term Cat? I never understood. It’s like saying Jaguar Jamnin, Rooster Rock, or Hedge Hog Hits.

  3. .9 share, maybe. That’s IF the station stays on the air.

  4. A .9 share would be better than the .5 they have on that zydeco format. LOL!
