I must admit to feeling that I need to tune away from WHHP FM (blues, bluegrass and Americana music) out of Farmer City, Illinois, these days to listen to 106.3 WGCY out of Gibson City. I have been doing this the last several times after driving by the station. They say they play "Beautiful Music" something I'm not too keen on, but, so help me, I sure enjoy it now. Must be an age thing.
They played the not-so-beautiful "Louie, Louie," but then, there I was sing along to "Guantanamera" and "By the Time I Get to Phoenix." And the last one was one of those light strings arrangements. I'm doing that right now for some reason, despite listening to the Drive's A to Z on 97.1 FM right now.
Then came "Come to Me Baby" by the Beach Boys and "Rhinestone Cowboy," this time by the real Glen Campbell.
This is a weak station and I was soon out of range and went back to WHHP. And, you'd sure expect to hear a show like the Mid-Day Farm Market Report out of a radio station in Farmer City.
Continuing north I saw all of the windmills at the huge wind farm by Odell were stopped. I've never seen them all stopped at once.
