    Default English radio station in Sosua Yeah!!

    I dont know if anyones posted about this new radio station yet but i have a few things id like to share since im pretty sure the owners or DJs read this forum from time to time.

    First of all ITS ABOUT TIME!!! Good work.

    Ive been listening for a couple months now and i live in Puerto Plata. Id just like to say that sometimes your signal doenst come in, it gets taken over by that other radio station with half english half spanish, i forget what its called but it sucks.

    Check your downloads before playing them, so many chopped songs, i cant believe you guys are pros.

    You guys claim to be a rock station, i might be old fashioned but in my world Whitney Houston, Gloria Estefan, Britney Spears, Ashley Simpson, Eminen (that i love BTW) have nothing to do with rock.

    I know GNR is considered rock but chill a little on them, i mean 10-20 songs a day, everyday seems obsessive.

    And since your downloading songs anyways why always play the same ones over and over, theres so much good stuff out there.

    A blues hour or 2 would be awesome, i know you mix it up but to hear Ashley Simpson then a cool blues track just seems unnatural.

    Your advertising sounds too high school, the jokers lounge, where the bad boys come to play...give me a break. And that Barbarino dude that wants us to buy land in cities he cant even pronounce seems unprofessional. The one about the best burgers in the world where we have to figure out where he is....come on a scavenger hunt for burgers? The one i know ill never step foot in is that dolphin rock bar, with the dolphin chirps or whatever doesnt really give it that rock edge!

    What about telling us locals about other cool watering holes or where we can score great deals, even if they dont advertise with you....should be a liittle educational about the country and surroundings, not just businesses that pay you. Im sure if you do it for free they would eventually come around when they find out they heard about on Roxy 92.5, by a professional advertising team, by the way cool name.




    You guys are close but still have work to do, im just glad someone had the guts to do it.

    I think they're great.. we sometimes get their signal right across the mountain on the way to Santiago up to the crossroads where you hang left... So nice to listen to Rock sometimes, even though some of it is kinda old... But I also agree a little blues would be welcome. (Would it still be an English station then?)

    I actually complained about some of the music one DJ plays and he said that they are aiming for the Kite surfing dudes with the lousy music. I just wonder if their advertisers want to aim at a broke crowd that won't supprot them.

    A bit of blues would rock my boat also and it would be far better than FUK this and FUK that songs that they play constantly.

    Perhaps once out of its infancy they will have better programming.

    Default Roxy?

    That would be Rubi my friend. Guess your reception is pretty poor?

    I've never, ever played Guns N Roses and only played AC/DC once because my guest begged me. Listen in on a Sunday morning 10-12 'ish.

    If you want different music played then email or telephone and ask for it. The DJ's are there for you - not themselves, they are probably just lacking inspiration at the time, a call from a listener goes a long way.

    OK, instead of complaining, why don't y'all come up with a song list that you'd like to hear?

    Default 92.5 Rubi Radio is on the Net

    I found it at the following URL:

    http://www.sosualife.com/RUBI92-5FM.htm

    Simply scroll down to where it says-Listen Now. In my case I also had to down load an audio software program, but it was a very fast download-less than a minute on roadrunner. They walked me right through it. Very easy.

    It was great listening and the music was enjoyable. Im sure I'll be a regular listener. Loved the British humor this morning. Absolutely spiffing as they said. heheheh Check it out.

    Oh yeah it is Rubi, not Roxy (hehehe)

    People arent really complaining they just wish the DJs would be a little more inspired.

    You know DJs used to be the ones that would make you discover awesome bands and new songs you wouldnt have heard on your own. Get DJs that love music and disocering bands, not just eating lunch and leaving the station with no one in there and telling us that on the air!!! THat was baD


    Heres a couple bands that rock:

    NIN
    Rage Against the Machine (without the apologies)
    Prodigy
    Muddy Waters
    HowlinWolf
    Black Flag
    MArilyn Manson (not just beautiful people)
    Colin JAmes
    Beer Dawgs
    Atari Teenage Riot
    Morcheeba (i know i know but theyre good)
    Mudcat Blues
    Original Voodoo Chili
    Psycho Blues Band
    Two Bones and a Pick
    Bessie Smith
    John Lee Hooker


    But now at least youve found out that playing some blues would be beneficial to all.

    Lets start with that, and if you do start having a blues hour it should be 2 hours long and it should be 10pm, right now that slot needs a major overhaul.
    The daytime DJs are pretty decent but at night.........id rather not say. BTW you know thwe owner of Rockys in Sosua, he knows all about blues get him to DJ, i dont know if he would do it but at least im sure hed be good!

    Ill keep listening and thanks for replying.

    Good luck to all

    Default the answers to your questions

    listen folks, the playlists are generated by caller requests. all my dj's are required to fill out request logs. the playlists are generated with several factors involved.....first being the charts in the us. we play the tracks that are getting the most air play in the top markets in the us as a base for the daily lists. added to that are the top 20 requests that our devoted listeners call in and ask for. then the dj's add their picks if there is room left in their shows. so if you dont agree with the dj picks...dont complain, just call in some requests. the dj's are here to serve YOU the listeners. 571-3351 or just go to www.rubi92fm.com and email your request, it pops up right on the dj screen and they will get it on right away. as for the download, just click on "select another player" and click on "windows media player" and you dont have to download anything....thanks for listening.

    oh and as far as the free advertising, i dont get free electric, free rent, free dj,s, free computers, free internet, free phones, free paper, free pens, or even free paperclips. so unfortunatly i cant give free advertising. but the business world here on the north coast is coming around. and as for the actual copy for the ads, please feel free to come in and give it a shot producing. befor this venture i had never been involved in the radio business, so its a learn as you go program for all of us here. and hats off to my british ex-pat dj's who are striving hard to learn as much as they can about american rock and roll.

    rage against the machine? youve got to be kidding.....

    Default Great Station

    I really enjoyed listening to Rubi and will continue to do so. I thought it was great!!! As for all the celebrities, well you should hear some of the things they make up here in Tampa. Obviously, Rubi is having fun and should make for even more listening.

    Keep up the good work. Finally, I guess my age is showing as I didnt recognize any of the bands mentioned in a previous post. Whatever happened to the Wooly Buly hehehe.
