HELLINGER BROADCASTING Talk WABV-A/ABBEVILLE, SC flips to Country as "COOL COUNTRY 1590" under OM/PD PAUL B. WALKER, JR. WALKER tells ALL ACCESS, "The SAVANNAH LAKES Region have been without a Country station since October 2006 when PROCOM's WHZQ-FM flipped from 94.1 THE BULL to Spanish and to Soft AC in a failed sale. WABV decided it was time to make a change, but we wanted to do it right... after much consideration and planning, say HELLO to 'COOL COUNTRY 1590'... playing 'The Best Country Classics' ever made and Today's Hottest Hits.
"Every time I'd come across people in town, they'd ask me, 'So when you going to put some country music on that radio station?' Well, they've spoken and I've listened. We are going to do our best to superserve ABBEVILLE with local weather, sports information and stuff you'd expect from a small town radio station."
The station's Web site is up with streaming at wabv1590.com.
