Recommended radio station

It stands to reason: in the last week or so, as I've been moving my stuff out of Gainesville, FL, I've found the greatest radio station I've come across in a long time.

It's 980 AM for those (any) of you in Gainesville. WDVH-AM, owned by Jablamo, an LLC based in Indianapolis, Indiana. It's also listed as WLUS, but that may be an older call sign. Whatever its letters, the station goes by "County Legends," and it's fantastic: it plays real country music, not that pop-with-twang crap that so often tries to pass for it. As I passed out of its coverage area today, they went from Conway Twitty's great "Saturday Night Special" to Dolly Parton's immortal "Jolene" -- and in between they played songs I can't name, because I'd never heard them before and no disc jockey interrupted to correct my ignorance. And that's just fine by me.

I just wish they had a website with streaming audio, so I could listen to them here.
