On air: Catch Me Mornings with John Boy & Billy and whenever Laura Steele or Joe Elvis are out.
Ever since I can remember, I have had a fascination with Rock and Roll. I think it started with my Father taking me as a child to see the Rolling Stones. I grew up listening to and/or seeing Steppenwolf, Led Zepplin, Jefferson Airplane, Hendrix, The Who, Pink Floyd, Van Halen, Rush, and many more bands too numerous to name. I wanted to play the guitar like Pete Townsend or Jimmy Page but never was able. The next best thing, I thought, was to become a radio DJ and play their music. First job in Clarksville, then just outside Evansville, Ind. Landed in Nashville Radio and worked for many years at one of the top Heritage Rockers in the country. Worked with some of the best radio people I ever knew including the late Patty Murray, Carl P., The Duke, Dave Walton, Mr. Bill, Shannon, Joe Elvis, David Hall, Ian Case, B. Derek, and Kidd Redd. Everything was great until management decided to adjust the music. At first, it was cool but they did not stop with cool. They totally crashed that great station into the ground and then resurrected it to a horrible Country format. Jimmy couldn’t play that and left the building.
Six weeks later, I was hired by 1059 The Rock, the greatest Classic Rock Station in the world!! I have never enjoyed working in radio more in my entire life. We play a fantastic variety of the best Classic Rock ever recorded! Join me mornings with John Boy & Billy Monday thru Friday, then stick around till 10:00A. Also, catch me Saturdays from 9A to 3P and whenever Laura Steele or Elvis take off. Thanks for listening.
