Near Monday lunchtime here - enjoying your show. Great

I discovered your station on a recent vacation through
the coastal redwoods and I was astounded. What wonderful diversity. I
rarely heard anything that was typically played on any other station.
I NEVER heard anything that I didn’t want to listen to.
And that included the commercials.
I could not believe how much I WANTED to listen to the commercials.
I don’t know what kind of magic you have, but I wish you could clone it
and bring it to the pacific northwest. I used to say that we have some
great radio stations to listen to in the Seattle area, but now I can
only say that they are good.
Thanks again for a great, eclectic,
high quality station.
Last week over a number of different days either a
song or a set made me think about how much I enjoy the Coast. A number
of times I said to myself, “gotta let them know that was a great set or
I love hearing that group”. You guys and the crew are music and voices
(not including the ones in my head) that accompany most hours of each of
Well, I opened the Ukiah Daily Journal this morning and there was a
story about the creation of KYBU radio in Covelo. It reports on what you
did for them. It sums it up with the quote “KOZT is our number one
awesome sponsor, they are our godparents”.
Wow, you guys are awesome. Passing it forward like this is such a good
thing. Thanks for doing everything you do and truly defining community
Love ya all. Richard

Message: Hi folks. A message from over the pond near Liverpool. I have
been listening to your station now for about 3 years or so and I just
wanted to let you know that it is without doubt the best station on my
Internet radio. A fantastic job, great choice of music.
Subject: KOZT the next generation
Message: As frequent visitors to the Mendocino coast my husband and I
have become hooked on The Coast and stream it when at home in Seattle.
Our (grown) children refer to it as our grey ponytail station, but our
two year old granddaughter has dubbed it " the sharkie station".
Today while eating lunch she was rocking out in her seat to The Stones,
looked at me and said "I LOVE sharkie music!" So thanks, from
Fiona and her grandma. ; - ) Pat
I am an internet listener and whenever we are more
south listen via the regular radio. A couple of days ago, you played a
Tom Rush song called What I know. I am a huge Tom Rush fan from years
back and fell in love what that song. I also play ukulele and thought it
would be a fun song to play. I wrote down the words as the song was
playing, but couldn't find the chords on line anywhere. I found Tom
Rush's fan page online an emailed asking where I could purchase a song
book for the chords. Boy was I surprised to get a personal email from
Tom Rush with the words and chords that he had worked up for me. I
always loved his music but now I have to say I am impressed with the
man! Thanks KOZT for keeping us connected in more ways than One!

Dear Russ and Rigelski, My 15-month old granddaughter
and I listen to your show every morning from 6:00 to 7:30 when we leave
for work. I want to thank you for your entertaining and enthusiastic
Racine's commercials. Molly really loves "The wall of pens!"complete
with Joe's scary sound effects. She holds out her hands to me, and I
repeat what Joe says. She thinks that this is hilarious. I also really
appreciate your choice of music. Thank you,
Subject: At 80 Message: So at 80 your radio,
Your folks, have taken 40 years off my life. Now I'm young 40 in my mind
dam this is great! Your radio App. Is on my, IPhone , two iPads, one
Apple Comp. so I'm 40 around the clock! Thank you, thank you! O! I'm in
Simi Valley . WELL JUST THANKS! Bill.
To all at KOZT, Thanks very much for all the great
tune you play and all the info and liner notes about the songs and
artists. It's a great mix of old and new and sometimes "wierd" music you
play. You guys have cost me a lot of money. I hear a new CD or artist on
your station and have to have it. There is a lot of CD's from well known
artists that I have never heard or songs that are new to me. I've also
been buying books from Gallery Book Shop, Mendocino. I never get bored,
as your play list has so much variety, you always are waiting for the
next great song. I don't have a fancy phone to listen on, but every time
I am on-line, so are you. Happy Birthday and keep up the all the music
and those pesonalities at KOZT

Subject: first time listener. glad I found you on the
web. I thought REAL Radio was dead. Fantastic Job Folks!!! I'll tune in
as often as I can, which will be a lot!!!
Hello from Canada! My wife and I have been avid Coast
listeners since we were in Mendocino and Fort Bragg a couple of years
ago on vacation. We haven't had a chance to listen much over the past
couple of weeks, but I remember that at this time last year, it was the
Coast's birthday - so I thought I'd send you a note to wish you a happy
birthday this year again, and thank you for playing such great music. We
love listening to you - and it is always wonderful when it's cold here
(-46 with the wind chill today) and we hear Kate's voice! It reminds us
of warmer times spent in your lovely part of the world. Enjoy!

Thanks guys...you know how much I appreciate you! I
have to tell you about how I can now listen to you on my phone,
anywhere, with the Tune in Radio app for my droid. It's been a blast to
go hiking at parks in Santa Rosa and Windsor and take KOZT with me. So
fun! Hope you are all well, Marilyn
Loving the program. I try to listen to The Coast at every opportunity
having discovered it while travelling in The States two years back. I
have fond memories of the few days I spent around Mendocino and will
revisit one day. Your music and conversations together with the
commercial advertisement are a constant prompt of the delightful places
and people I met. Thanks for the memories…..cheers and regards….Ian

Thank you for the countdown....love it every
year...but even more we thank you for all you do all year for us, all
the charities you support, how much we rely on you for storms, power
outages, etc....but most of all for the music. You are a treasure on
this coast. Wishing you all a healthy, peaceful and happy 2013.
Pat and Richard
I had a lot to do today and didn’t want to miss the
top 95 so I finally downloaded the app to my android, put on the
headphones and have been working like crazy to some great tunes. My
fellow listeners have some pretty good taste in music. Loving it all.
Love what you do. Richard
Thanks you guys that are there this morning and will
be there later today and everyday. You've been my 'get ready for work
every morning' radio buddies for years and then later throughout the the
days and weekends. It's a great radio channel and its the people there
that make the channel. Have a great holiday, -
Hi, You guys have a great format for your station. So many good songs
from the past and new ones that will be great songs from the past in the
future. Lots of songs that I have not heard in a long time. I live in St
Georege, Utah and listen on-line anytime I am on the computer. I found
you guys from a trip from San Luis Abispo up Highway 1 to Coos Bay
Oregon and have listened for 4 years now. Also I found Gallery
Books from your station and their commercial. I found several books that
were out of print I could not find in the "big" books stores.
"Christie", at Gallery Books says she loves your station.
I have also purchased several CD's from hearing cuts from them on "The
Coast". Such as Mark Knopfler and Local Licks Live. Thanks again
for some great music........Tony MERRY
CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL.......
I don't know how many years I have listened to KOZT enjoying the best
on the west coast in one of my favoite coastal towns! Keep it up! Happy
Holidays and a Happy New Year to all at "The Coast!" :) happy
Hal...from Pt. Richmond
Thank you for being different. I live in Ventura County, Simi Valley to
be exact and to be able to stream kozt is the next best thing to heaven.
>From Moby Grape "Naked If I Want To" to LOVE, Jim Kweskin, and Zappa I
love it all. You remind me of KPPC radio back in the day. PLEASE
KEEP IT UP !!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks and God Bless ya all.

I discovered your station driving from Willits to Ft Bragg through my
forest in September of 2011 on a holiday from here in the UK. In
September 2013 we'll be staying in Fort Bragg for a whole week, so it
would be great to stop by the studio and say "hello".
Now everyday when I take my dog for a walk at teatime here in the UK I
tune in on my phone to listen to Russ and Regelski. I have never heard a
station like yours which has managed to combine mass appeal without
compromising the integrity of the music.
Great work, and your awards are richly deserved.
