Beside the infomercials, which rdvegas
already addressed, and the occasional black screen (they've been off-air some in the past year), what you've seen is the bulk of what the station offers. "Songs Of The Heart" is the brainchild of Black Gospel recording artist Wyleaner Springfield, better known as "Wyleaner", who has billed herself as "The Las Vegas Queen of Gospel". Wyleaner has always been a devoted fan of traditional Black Gospel artists, but especially Mahalia Jackson, who was known as "The Queen of Gospel".
Given that background, one could see that the station's focus would be heavily on Christian and Black cultural programming. Operating on a financial shoestring, as it appears that SOTH does, a heavy schedule of public domain programming comes as no surprise, either.
Cheesy as the programming may seem to some, ventures such as SOTH are exactly what was intended when the Low Power television class was created - locally sourced (SOTH's offices are at 420 N. Nellis Blvd.) and niche programming that would never find its way onto a full-power signal.
Congratulations to SOTH on one year operating. Hopefully, there is an audience that finds SOTH's programming to be of value so that they can be on air for many years to come.
