Lots of good music/radio info here.

I also have my own music sources. I use mostly Prime Music Unlimited and iHeartRadio. My op was mainly driven by those times when I'm a "captive audience", like at the swimming pools. It would be nice to have some variety at those times.

A call in talk show would likely go over in The Villages. A lot of Villagers like to hear themselves talk.

Yes. I think it would turn very negative, very quickly.

DJ's would have to have their finger on the mute button.

Sunny 105.9

WIND 95.5

WMMO 98.9

You may not have noticed but you can now listen to (stream) with the XM/Sirius app on your smartphone even without the FULL package. They just added app listening to all the packages. It used to be only for the "all access" package. Now it's for all.

Our Villages Station is great the way it is for me.
Oops! Overlooked Metallica, a awesome band. Led Zeppelin was playing the other day and I made the comment to my wife that there aren’t any bands like this anymore.

I like WVLG the way it is also.

There are only a few pools that broadcast music. However, I an in agreement with you. It seems the radio station is up to about 1972. I would like a little more recent, and something with an edge such as Allman Bros, Pink Floyd, Clapton, Dire Straits, Tom Petty. I think you get the idea.

Wow. I thought for a second I wrote this post and just forgot about it somehow. To say our music tastes are similar is an understatement.

I am listening to the 80's at 8 on WVLG. So for at least one hour each day, the station is getting into music of the 1980's. But's it's a pretty middle of the road play list. I would enjoy hearing Eric Clapton and Tom Petty.

I would like to hear a lot more variety such as album cuts that weren't top 40 hits. Also some folk music from the 60's and some lesser known music. All hits all the time is a bore.
