Chattanooga radio listeners now have another choice when it comes to rock radio in the Scenic City. The Train has pulled into town with veteran broadcaster Jamie Roberts at the controls.
Listeners may remember him as the evening personality of another Classic Rock radio station in town from 2004 to 2014.
The Train webcasts strictly on the Internet, and is available anywhere listeners have access to the net. This means anywhere FM (or AM) is available, and with better sound quality, he said.
The station has also been operating commercial free since its debut in late May, and will continue this into the near future.
Mr. Roberts said, "Eventually we will have to add advertising. But it will be on a very limited basis, and will allow more music per hour than the traditional broadcasters."
Mr. Roberts, who can once again be heard weeknights on the station, has also tapped former Chattanooga radio personality Charlie Foxx for weekday afternoons.
He said, "We seem to be building quite the following pretty fast. Our listenership has surprisingly grown beyond Chattanooga, with fans in the UK, Germany, The Netherlands, Italy, Mexico and more. And our social media page continues to gain new likes on a weekly basis. So the word is slowly getting out."
Mr. Roberts said he listened to a lot of fan feedback over the decade he was on-air in Chattanooga. The result is a radio station that travels just beyond Classic Rock.
