WYOB delivers the goods ==> funky fresh reggae riffs 24 / 7 / 365. Just what our island needs! Non-stop Jamaican jams and Caribbean canticles to keep MV moving and grooving. Ja, mon.Steve Martin
I am visiting on vacation from Long island NY and this station was tuned on the radio of the house we are staying in for the week. I had to look you up so I could send you an email! I listen to XM radio and I have been trying for years to find a beachy reggae station. 105.5 is everything I’ve been looking for! Great job in the music selection!!
You guys beat out the corporate radio stations and XM any day. Great job. Keep up the great work!Chris Crans
