Ratings and Reviews



This works good and I won't blow your 4 1/2 star rating. This rating is for the Internet station. I listen to 97.9 X a lot when I'm driving. But the sound quality of the Internet version is absolutely horrible and unacceptable, it is the lowest quality mp3 sound on the entire Internet. Do you really expect us to listen to this? It literally sounds worse than AM radio, and to say it's distorted is an understatement. I don't know what else to say except I wouldn't subject my ears or speakers to that kind of abuse. Please stop embarrassing northeast PA and upgrade this ASAP.

Awesome App


Great features, works well, no cutting out or lagging, sent to a load of friends that listen over air and now on here. Keep the updates coming. Great work guys!!!!! Just wondering why I don't hear about the app on the radio????

Pretty good

It's a good app. Since I don't listen to 979x in the car because of my iPod when I'm bored I can pull this app up. One complaint though it's stuck on Sick Puppies- You're going down. I don't care though just wanted it so I can win concert tickets sometime. 4stars
