Snagly pretty much nailed it for me too. How in the heck do you listen to any of this stuff in Singapore - XM or what. The only thing you left out is some hot licks from Deep Purple...we have a local pacifica public radio station (KPFT) here in HTown that plays good shit all day sat and sun. If you want some texas rock to Wille sat AM, hot texas jams Sat PM, badass blues Sunday AM is the schniz...great blues to rock during mid day or if you want some homespun bluegrass Sun PM but otherwise KPFT sucks way too political and liberal. Other bad thing about this station is that they have a very weak transmitter - doesn't reach the Coast except Galveston (sister station). HOWEVER - Victoria Station Texas radio 95.7 covers the full gambit and as I've said before "they rule the coast. Nothing but good tunes for driving, fishing or the ole in and out - what else is there?

That country/americana station out of New Braunsfel,Tx has to be the best regular radio station I have ever heard... :bow
92.1 is the shit, great for burning one or drinkin cold beer beside the Guad....

here sometimes i can pick up a wanna-be texas co. station out of monroe,ga... called "The Bull"
they play some boland,fowler,robinson, etc... and some older stuff.. alot better than shit in atlanta or macon..... The river isnt bad compared to other choices for oldies..

I'll agree that Radar Love is a great Highway tune, but it don't top Highway Star :wink

Singapore FM English language radio is a nightmare of 1970's AM hits (Bread is probably the #1 or #2 band, neck and neck with Chicago and the Bee Gees) delivered by US-trained DeeJays paired up for PG-rated drive time patter. CD car stereo sales exceed car sales (in case your CD changer breaks down en route, you'll want a redundant system).

The point is largely moot, however, on two counts:

1. I have my own compilation driving to fishing CDs that get played on fishing trips (either on the plane or in the rental rig)

2. There is no fishing to drive to in Singapore. Even if you fish with dynamite, there's bugger all public water that holds fish in any concentration. Every creek mouth as a net 100% across it on an outgoing tide. Most reservoirs banned fishing to avoid contaminating emergency drinking water (which is a shame because there are some honking big fish cruising the shoreline). There are a couple of pay ponds where you take the kids, chum like crazy and test out the fly gear on teased-to-the-top rental barramundi of 10lbs or so.

Nice to see some kindred spirits (Ajax, Golden) in respect of music tastes. Other heavy rotation drive tunes from the Snagly tunes-to-get-you-beating-the-time-on-the-dashboard while the defrost is roaring, the truck is rumbling, it's still dark outside and the tie downs for the inflatable boat on the roof remind you that it's another day floating the river and life is gooood:
