GET's Dain Schult, Announces Advanced Syndication Production Research on Dixie Flyer Radio Hour
GET Chairman, Dain Schult, remarked, "'The Dixie Flyer Radio Hour' is a programming concept that ties to my grandfather. He (Len Denman) was a railroad engineer and ran the Dixie Flyer between Atlanta and Chattanooga.
"As a lifelong railfan, this honors my grandfather, the railroad for which he worked 43 years and this grand old Southern passenger train, the Dixie Flyer.
"The Dixie Flyer was a passenger train that operated between Chicago, IL and Miami, FL through Nashville, Chattanooga and Atlanta on its way through Florida down to Miami. It was the pride and joy of the Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis Railway (NC&StL)
"It was started in the late 1800's it ran until the mid-1960's before finally being discontinued as passenger trains disappeared across the county. A number of songs were written about the train over the years.
"Testing is now being conducted for programming ideas for our proposed slate of Saturday offerings. "The Dixie Flyer Radio Hour" will combine, Country, Bluegrass, Comedy and Theater of the Mind programming to give the listener the impression that the show is actually originating from the club car of the Dixie Flyer on its way from Chicago to Miami.
"So far, this research is the idea for of a variety of one-hour programs that will cover various formats for GET and can also be syndicated domestically and internationally."
GET is involved in several media initiatives that include Internet Radio with its own unique Internet radio formats and specialty podcasts, It will also be involved in live entertainment, sound systems, talent development, "last mile" services to satellite Internet/Wi-
