    My wife and I would like to thank you for the last 4-1/2 months of “unique” musical programming on KREV. She and I are from the Kansas City, MO area, but have worked all summer as seasonal staff at the YMCA of the Rockies. Being without TV during our stay frankly forced us to seek other entertainment, so we turned to radio. Shortly after arriving at the Y, I happened to tune in to your station when you were playing several Bix Beiderbecke hits on your “oldtime jazz” program in the evening. I’m afraid you had me at that point. (I was born & raised in Iowa, and was introduced to Bix’s music by my dad over 50 yrs ago. Bix became a lifelong favorite of mine.) However, since then, my wife and I have enjoyed the wide variety of other music you folks offer in your programming. Many times we have wished that you would announce the artists (we can understand why you don’t with the range of selections you play, and the break in continuity if you did), but sometimes it’s just fun to try to guess an old 40′s or 50′s song or artist. BUT…I am forced to inquire about a men’s vocal group which I’ve heard a few times. Most recently was tonight (Sun, Oct 18th, 2008) at about 10:15pm. They were singing “Bridge Over Troubled Waters” — the old Simon and Garfunkel hit. The men’s group has a “barbershop” feel to it at times, and I would appreciate it very much if you could perhaps tell me the name of this group. (I’ve also heard them sing “The Long & Winding Road” by Paul McCartney.)

    Again, thank you for keeping us company this summer.

    Richard and Sue Blew, of Oak Grove MO
