American Samoa is a small group of small islands in the exotic South Pacific with a total land area of only 76.8 square miles, a little more than the area of Washington DC. There are five main islands, and two coral atolls, with a population of 45,000, most of whom are bilingual in both Samoan and English.
The earliest beginnings for ARAMCO Radio in Dhahran Saudi Arabia can be traced back to the late 1930s when the Arabian American Oil Company played music over a set of loud speakers that were installed at a company swimming pool. The Arabian American Oil Company was established in 1933 and with its exponential growth it has become the largest and most valuable commercial company in the world.
The current radio scene in Nepal indicates that the most significant form of radio coverage in Nepal is achieved by more than 500 FM stations; government owned, commercial, and community stations. Programming is on the air in a multitude of local and regional languages, and also in English, Hindi and Urdu for wide area coverage. Off air relays in several languages from the BBC in London are also heard on some FM stations.

Joe Allison was a songwriter, performer, record company executive and a DJ. Joe came along around the time of "Modern Country" and was responsible for modernizing "Hillbilly" radio. It was great. I just remastered this, enjoy.Joe Allison - 1963More Joe Allison

Wolfman was the only one that we'd get complaints about. First thing I did at SCN when I could was get his airtime changed from 3am to 8pm. There was only one Wolfman, I'm proud we had him.Wolfman Jack 1983More Wolfman Jack
