- Dec 9, 2006"These Stars Made Country Radio Great!"
By: Jimmy Stix
I know country radio must be still interested in these stars, right?
They made country radio what it is today! I know some of the stars
listed are relatives (Sons, Daughters, Sisters and Brothers) of the
SuperStars of yesterday, but, what runs in most families is the great
talent the superstars of Country Music have. Families played together

Well? Are you? Why Not? These stars and other professional country
music kinfolk belong to the Country Legends Association and you could

What happen to these stars, have they lost their talent? Are they
dead? Do they put out any new songs? Do they still go on tour? Do they
still have fans? Or are they dead too? Why is radio, the one's calling
themselves Country, ignoring these great stars of country music? Is
the new DJs wondering why they can't play this special new music of
country? Why is the BIG Business Media Corporations pushing off the
stars listed herein, and why are we, the people of USA allowing it to
Turning off the country music of these stars is a crime! It's American
Airwaves we are talking here folks! Big Corporation Media is telling
you, you don't want to hear these stars! Is that true? They say to
you, it's ok, we will give you what you want to hear!
Well...........if that's true, then why is it, that whenever I ask a
country music lover, young or older, face to face, nobody in country
tells me they only want to hear the new country music of todays stars!
Everyone wants to hear todays stars, and Yesterday's Stars listed above!!
Radio! Listen to me, the majority.......... that's right.........the
MAJORITY of country music lovers in this country do not listen to your
"Airwaves"............ Big Business Media, are you listening? You do
not have the majority of country music
people listening to your radio! And therefore you are losing a great
deal of listenership in all your so called demographics ............ a
term I might add, that was developed mostly to try and convince people
like me that what Big Business is doing with our country, was
justifiable. No consultant will ever convince me that their
professional moves with country music made radio better for our
country! This is why places like Calafornia, New York and other major
cities are losing the country format to others! Yes! There's other
reasons for this, but, this is one of the major reason's for the loss!
Please! everyone who agrees with me...........speak out! And those who
disagree with me, don't just e-mail me, that's easy to do, there's
nobody else reading your reasons for disagreeing with me, publish the
reasons! Or are you afraid that true country music lovers will flood
you with e-mails telling you you are wrong!
The stars listed herein, "These Stars Made Country Radio Great!" and
your country radio will not stay GREAT if you keep ignoring them!
Again! The have NEW country too! So play it!
Sincerely yours gang!
