We received the following email this week:
Hi. Don B, formerly of Richmond KY now living in Adelboden, Switzerland, staying in touch with home by following the Wildcats and listening to a WSKV. Home : )
I wanted to vote for Kip in the Morning as my favorite DJ but don't see his name on the list. He's got a nice style and really good taste in music. Can you help me?
Thanks for makin' me feel at home.
I've never been to Adelboden, Switzerland before and the mere thought of being THAT FAR away from the only place I've called home leaves me a little unsettled inside. It's also hard to imagine that someone would be listening to Pickup Country 104.9FM from so far away. But when your roots are nourished in Kentucky - it's sights and sounds and people - something inside is always calling you closer to "home." And we know there is no substitute for home.
Reading Don's email made me smile. It is a great privilege to be part of a station that broadcasts the sounds of home to local listeners and those abroad. Whether they listen for music from the region, for the fastest 1.5 hours in radio or just to hear someone speaking with our Kentucky accent, I'm honored to learn we have Kentucky family listening from Switzerland. Thank you, Don, for your email.
You can listen like a local too from anywhere:

Just to let you know, you can now choose Kip as your favorite DJ on our HOME PAGE. Pickup Country Mornings With Kip airs Monday through Friday from 5AM to 8AM. He plays a great variety of music styles and often features local bluegrass, country and acoustic artists. For a taste of "home," give him a listen.
Have a great day, and thanks for listening.
