    It's almost been a year since we did our last show.Jay Bush my partner has been auditioning for the show Shark Tank and so this has put the show on hold. If he gets on Shark Tank, we will be terribly delayed. Good luck Jay. Either way we will one day continue the show and have the coolest global independent radio station out there. This is just a small video we did with one of our artists.Waiting for One and their tune 35 years. Check it out.

    West Virginia's state mine director says six coal miners are dead and 21 others missing after an explosion in Raleigh County.

    There are reports that 21 miners have already been removed from the mine and are being treated for their injuries. That would put 48 miners underground at the time of the explosion.

    Please keep my home state in your thoughts tonight. I'm wondering if the recent earthquake activity here in WV has something to do with this. We've had two in the last few weeks, which is not normal for here, from what I've been able to find online.

    Your in our prayers WV, I'm in Georgia and heard nothing about WV having earthquake activity. That could have had something to do with it, maybe it weakened the structure.

    These accidents break my heart. I think about the miners alot and the dangerous job they do for us all.

    Please save the rest of the missing and comfort the families who have lost loved ones.

    More info at this link. http://www.wsaz.com/news/headlines/8...ySection=story

    Mine safety officials say the seven miners killed inside a West Virginia coal mine were leaving the site in a vehicle when an explosion occurred.

    Kevin Stricklin, an administrator with the Mine Safety and Health Administration, says two other men on the vehicle were hurt. Stricklin says there are 19 others unaccounted for, including two crews of nine workers and a fireboss who had been working alone.


    The explosion destroyed all communication lines inside the mine.

    Stricklin says there are two rescue chambers near the blast site that, if the trapped miners can reach them, are stocked with food, water and enough air to survive four days.

    Stricklin says officials don't believe there was a roof collapse, but they don't yet know what caused the explosion.


    One of the people commenting say there are three from one family that are missing.

    This is so heartbreaking. Tears me up to pieces.
    I had to play flip-a-roo with my remote to see news about it. I'm sorry but I think this story should be covered more than TW.


    Please help the community through this tragedy. Grant comfort to those who have lost loved ones. And find the missing miners.
