"Duke FM reintroduced a multitude of Country Hits to the public that have not received radio airplay in numerous years. This music was popular then and continues to be popular today. As a result of consistently delivering these great hits to the fans, we decided to invest the time and money to bring the Legends stories closer to the DUKE-FM fans. Our first round of interviews in Nashville far exceeded our expectations and now DUKE-FM is sharing those thought-provoking stories with country music aficionados throughout the United States with a positive response on all levels," said Jeff McCarthy, Vice President Programming, Midwest Communications, Inc.
