    One thing I forgot to mention (I am getting old!). You will hear some German commercials and what they call station IDs. Why German when I am an Yankee in the middle of the US?

    Well, besides the US and UK, the next largest listening audience is from Switzerland. And then Norway (I know, they do not speak German, but Norwegian is so close to German that many can understand it).

    I may add IDs and/or commercials in Norwegian down the road a piece. I have a HUGE international listening audience. Japan is big (harder to find a professional voice that speaks Japanese and English). Of course nations that were once part of the British Empire are big listeners. Australia, New Zealand, Canada, etc. But most of them speak English (French Canada being one exception).

    While a vast majority speak English, the biggest minority of listeners speak German. So, the station now has an "international flair".

    Keep listening. And if listening from, don't forget to vote for a track, Up or Down if it moves you either direction.
