    I have a lot of place memories associated with songs over the years, but I hear the bulk of new songs the same way—sitting at the computer, often after opening an e-mail blast at midnight on Friday. Blanco Brown’s “The Git Up” was an exception. It was the first song playing when I went to check out Nashville-area WYCZ (YoCo 96.7) last month. “The Git Up” wasn’t first song played on YoCo, veteran music producer Pollo Da Don’s hybrid of Country, Pop, Hip-Hop and anything else to which you can two-step. (That was Kane Brown’s “Heaven.”) But it is certainly a defining song.

    In the month since I first heard it, Top 40 has been relatively quick on “The Git Up.” As of July 11, it’s up 46-40 airplay, according to Nielsen BDSRadio. Early supporters include many of the secondary Southern markets where both Country and R&B crossovers have started in the past: Lafayette, La., (where it’s around 50 spins on both the Mainstream and Rhythmic Top 40), Columbia, S.C., and Greenville, S.C. WFLZ Tampa has spread it to KSLZ (Z107.7) St. Louis, something which happened with regularity 20 years ago. WKXJ (Kiss 103.7) Chattanooga, Tenn.—known for playing a line-dance remix of “Rocky Top” in its early days—is there, too. And now the question is what Country radio will do.
    And one song The Git Up has been getting attention on 96.7 and other places around the nation.

    I tell you, the music on YoungCountry is pretty addictive. Admittedly, I have not listened in about a week. I hope they have continued to "bring it up.....and take it to the left...and it doesn't take a dip..."

    This is why when people on these boards complain that radio plays the same songs all the time, I suggest they simply tune around the dial.

    BigA - truth here is no one is paying attention to this jukebox. I am a bit surprised. Regardless, the songs that are on are worth listening to once every few hours. I wish there was a bit more flash and spice, but once you listen to it, it gets into you blood. I have high hopes that this station will evolve. I have been in and out of the city as of late and forget to tune in online and on air. This board reminded me and so far every song for the last hour has been refreshing. There is something about what is goin' on here that serves to pave the way to radio circa 2020. With this signal, online is where it is going to have to shine. Have you spent time listening? Thoughts, if you have? I know it's a tiny niche format, but it does make wonder how this would play in some of the top cities. Ain't no mass, but it's a media that sure could change the dance floor.
