Born, raised, and partially educated right here. East Laurens County, Brewton, to be exact. Don’t worry if you don’t know where it is. I had a hard time finding my way back. But HERE is home. I’ve been a few places, big towns, almost big time. It’s good to be home.
As a matter of fact, I started radio right here at one our sister stations, headed off to get partially educated at that big college in Athens, wandered off to New Orleans and back. Left here again, Atlanta bound. Like I said, almost made the big time. Oh yeah, and Macon. Seems I’ve worked all my career to get back where I started. It’s good to be home.
In my travels, I’ve met a lot of folks. Stars and legends. Important, powerful people. And I found most to be just folks, after all. But no matter where I went, I missed home folks. The way they wave at strangers, insist on feeding company, dress up on Sunday morning, and welcome a home boy back.
I’m not new here at Y-96 and State Broadcasting. You’ve heard my voice overt the years on commercials when I was part of the Sales Staff. As a matter of fact, when Y-96 first went “country”, I became the first country DJ on Y-96.
So if I sound familiar, good. I’ve loved Country Radio for….a long time. Oh, and I’m home.
