Audience Increasing Thanks to Ease Of Access

Edgewater Gold Radio's audience continues to increase and most importantly our local audience continues to rise. The reason is with the growth of Amazon Echo devices, various apps, websites and portability, accessing an internet radio station is much easier than it was ten years ago and the technology continues to improve. Internet broadcasters can't relay on accessibility alone to increase an audience.

He believed in strict structure, consistency, enthusiasm and balance in radio formats. One of his motto's while on air was"if you don't have anything to say, then don't say it!" He also believed in always letting the audience know what station they were listening to and what it does. i follow his advice and programming beliefs to this day.
