  1. What a change! … specially made for people who are in the mid’s 30 to 40 years old that still likes Rock … kind of Classic Rock Radio Station I’ve heard in many places USA and Canada … hopefully will make success … greetings from Patagonia CHILE S.A.


  2. This needs to work! Yeah I am 50, but enough with staions that only play the rock classics. I want to be exposed to new rock & alternative music. Welcome back and I hope you are here to stay!
