When I think back now I guess I always wanted to be a Disc Jockey and I've always had a love affair with radio.
 
While most kids were watching TV at night, I was usually in my room spinning the dial on my little clock radio looking for stations from anywhere and everywhere. For my tenth birthday I asked for a record player. That Christmas I asked for a tape recorder. My plan was to play radio at home. " K-Y-L-E Radio, All the hits all the time. I'd introduce the song while trying to drop the needle on the 45's, then go back and listen to what I recorded
 
When I got to college the Resident Assistant in my dorm told me about this cool student run radio station. I attended one of the introductory meetings, started showing up at the studios and just hanging out until I got the opportunity to start training and eventually anchor my first air-shift. Newbies had to learn the trade working overnights. I remember very well my first shift , the very first song I ever played, (Rush, The Spirit of Radio). Most of all I remember how totally awesome it was.
 
I volunteered to work every chance I could, and started spending all my free time there. One summer towards the end of my college career I decided to try to find a job at a local radio station. I had plenty of resumes and air-check tapes thinking I'll no doubt have to go to every station in the area to find a job. WMOA was the very first station I went to and the Program Director hired me on the spot. I couldn't believe it.
 
And here I am still, more than 20 years later. Still doing what I love and still loving what I'm doing.
 
WMOA Radio is a special place. Our commitment and service to this community is what makes it special and I know that will never change. It's a pleasure serving the good people of the Mid-Ohio Valley and I thank you for your support.
