Well, my name also gives it away.
There's not a lot of Spanish named communities in South Carolina.

I was always interested in doing a show on a local station. And perhaps being a "DJ".
After doing a time slot on  a local rock station here in the Coachella Valley, and getting to know the owner/ talking with her DJ's... I realized it would be a job that would become mundane when the music is basically picked for you to play. No thanks. Not to mention the pay is peanut shells.
Bill has a great system going here. And I appreciate the work he does.

There's a lot to see in the 'big empty', so if you find yourself goin' out west sometime, I can suggest some interesting, esoteric sites.

A long, long time ago when I was 18, I lived in a small North Central Texas town about an hour west of Fort Worth.  The town was nestled into some small hills & was just far enough out of the Dallas/Ft.Worth area that the FM signals were sketchy. We had a local FM station positioned on top of one the hills but they were a 24x7 easy listening station. A friend of mine knew the station owner's kid & & one summer (1971 I think) talked the owner into letting him do a 2-hour rock music show every night 12am-2am.  Problem was, the station didn't have much in the way of rock albums, just a few left off by promoters wandering through. My friends personal album collection was pretty sparse, but I had a decent collection going so I became his engineer of a sort, lugging a bunch of my albums up the hill every night. We had a 2-hours slot but the station was mostly automated so we could go long if we wanted.

It was really fun and I pretty much set the playlist ......  Beatles, Rolling Stones, Animals, and so on, and I was getting into Prog so we mixed in Yes, Moody Blues, ELP, along with things like Led Zeppelin I & II, Wishbone Ash, the first Allman Brothers album, Jefferson Airplane., Steppenwolf, The Who.  I was also into jazz, so we mixed in some Cannonball Adderley, Miles Davis, Les McCann & Eddie's Harris Swiss Movement, Coltrane, Blood Sweat & Tears, Chicago. Quite the eclectic mix and we didn't know much about creating setlists, so it could be any of those one after the other.  Sometimes we'd track an album side or whole album .... Days of Future Passed, Sgt Peppers, Tommy, Swiss Movement, Aftermath, Chicago I, Surrealistic Pillow, Steppenwolf the Second (side 2) and so on. 

The kids in town loved it and we'd get phone calls all during the show for requests, which of course had to be from my record collection.  I remember thinking what a cool way to make it living it would be, spinning music on the radio, learning how to create actual planned playlists, maybe being kind of the late night soundtrack for that little town.

Unfortunately, the station owner got quite a lot of phone calls as well, from his easy listening crowd who apparently really missed hearing Perry Como, Frank Sinatra, big bands and what not in the middle of the night. By the end of the summer the plug was pulled on our little show & we were back to try to catch a wave on the Dallas & Fort Worth stations through the static. Several months later I started my first rock band & lost track of that friend as he went off to college & I stayed around at a nearby junior college.

Turns out Bill & I are the same age. I've often wondered if that has anything to do with how much RP works for me, but of course RPeeps of all ages & backgrounds love it.  I've also imagined a young BillG doing his first gigs and thinking what a cool life it was and where he could take it.  Thankfully his genius for the art of creating magic with music led to RP, and 20 years later here we all are.

I talked to the owner of KGFN yesterday and sent him some music to try out.
 
Very cool!

I used to live in Tonopah as a kid... about 30 miles north of Goldfield. Around the turn of the century, Goldfield was one of the largest cities in Nevada. These days it's home to hearty, independence-loving folks. Their station reflects that. I'm sure they'll appreciate your suggestions.

The old abandoned Goldfield Hotel is famous in Ghost Hunting circles.

 
I've been listening to them fairly steady in the last few days.
I know my music library far exceeds theirs.

I mentioned Mike Nesmith of the Monkees would fit their playlist. He told me maybe one of their DJ's might play some Monkees.
I said Mike Nesmith didn't do the Monkees tunes when he went solo. So I sent him a couple of Mike's tunes. Along with some Neko Case and Son Volt.
I hope I didn't scare him away.
He did turn me to to this guy...
He said he lives in the same town I do.
And he did say to let him know when I came through town and let him know that he would give me a tour. A real friendly guy.
So it looks like a road trip of some back country roads is in the future.

KHUM... I just pulled them up. They're playing Captain Beefheart... wow. Ahh yes, Humboldt County. :-)

KVMR Grass Valley and KZFR Chico are two non-profit, non-NPR stations with interesting music shows. KZHP-lp Sacramento is a tribute station... a tribute to the old KZAP.

So much good music, and only 2 ears to listen with...

 

I just pulled up KGFN... they were playing "They Call The Wind Maria".
"Gotta scrape the #$@* right off your shoes"!

They still exist, usually in small towns, like Truckee and Quincy, CA, or Gerlach, NV. Sometimes they have an internet feed. KGFN in Goldfield, NV is a little gem. I like to use Radio.Garden as a media player. It's a good way to navigate the world of local radio. But I still come back to RP. It was there when I was using dial-up, and I'm glad to see it's always at the top of every media player's most-listened-to selection.
