Just recently, Facebook friend Patrick B. turned us on to a new radio station started by St. John residents Kevin Burgess and Jamie Gladman. Love City Radio is as diverse as beautiful St. John itself, and offers up selections from reggae to country to pop – an eclectic mix that evokes the feeling of relaxing in your favorite St. John bar and enjoying some music while kicking back and sipping a cold brew. (perhaps an Island Hoppin’ IPA from St. John Brewers?)
Jamie, who had 15 years of experience in radio in Kansas City, now does advertising and print work for local businesses on St. John. Kevin owns Wet Woody’s Boat Charters and St. John A/V, a custom audio/video and home technology company. Together, they launched the new station in December 2013 and are already experiencing a great response from those of us in need of an occasional (or constant) St John fix.
According to Kevin, there are several ways people can interact with Love City Radio. Song requests can be made through their website, Facebook, and Twitter by using #LCRsongrequest. They also send out free stickers if listeners contact them and provide their mailing address. Listeners often post photos on the Love City Radio Facebook page when they receive their stickers and also of themselves listening to the station. Check ‘em out on Instagram too!
I just requested a Love City Radio sticker and now am gonna go kick back and enjoy some Love City Radio tunes. Currently playing: Biggie Irie – Carnival Again :)
