Used to listen all the time, they played oldies from the 50's to 70's that I couldn't find on other stations and really enjoyed. The last couple of years they changed their music selection substantially and now play music I either don't care to listen to (lots of Disco), or I can hear on other stations that don't constantly barrage me with adds from the likes of properties of the Villages, erectile disfunction, hearing aids, investment advisors, home restoration, used furniture, etc.... I only tune in now for short periods to hear the weather or the news on the hour. I do like having some background music that is played at the sports pools to listen to when taking a break during lap swimming.

Just when alarm clock-radio goes off in the morning. I usually have to set it at least once a week in the morning. Sometimes more.

It's on in my garage 24/7. Turn it on in the house for noise for our furbabies when we're out.

Never listen (well, maybe 3x in the 3 years we've been here for like 3 minutes) I have XM in car, golf-cart and cell phone and can find any music I like as well as real streaming news station from anywhere and can play XM on any "Siri" or "Alexa" device around the house including my ecobee thermostat that surprisingly enough has an excellent speaker and Alexa built in. And no, I don't care if they can listen to me doing "stuff".

I've got XM in the car but I typically have WVLG on instead. I like the play list and I like the various info about what's going on in The Villages and local weather forecast. To me, its a great combination of music and talk. After I while I get tired of all music on the XM stations. As soon as I'm out of the area, then I switch over to XM radio. And to any new visitor coming to visit me, I tell them to switch to 102.7 just to get into "The Villager state of mind" before they even arrive.

WVLG is only good for hearing about open houses. But I do like the Sunday night show with Johnny O. I miss the old days of Ron Allen's Saturday night show.

It's not new. Very weak signal at night. I sometimes listen to it on line.

I like the weekday morning show. I listen to them during my walks.

When I'm in TVs I listen every morning. Love the local feel. Sometimes I stream from VA.
