Welcome to my web pages. Thanks for stopping by.
Here’s some quick stuff about me.
I started here at WNCO on August 1, 1984. I'm working here in my 28th year. My morning show is the longest running morning show in North Central Ohio and one of the longest running morning shows on any Country station is Ohio.
I was the 1994 Disc Jockey Hall of Fame inductee to the Ohio Country and Western Music Association (One of my proudest accomplishments).
I’ve served on several area non-profit agency boards including the Ashland County Fair Board, Ashalnd County American Red Cross Board and more.
I’ve MC’d a ton of Country shows at the Richland, Ashland, Knox, Huron, Loudonville and Attica Fairs. Also at the Renaissance Theater, the Rib Burn Off, the Chili Cook-off and many other shows. As time goes by I’ll try to write a little about the many Country Stars I have had the pleasure and sometimes disappointment to meet. I’ll dig out some photo’s for you to look at too.
My greatest accomplishment was talking my Adorable Redhead into marrying me in 2002. Every man should find a woman like her and live happily ever after. Can you tell I love her a little bit?
Our home is in northern Ashland county
My Adorable Redhead thinks I like her cat, “Christmas Kitty” just like the line in the George Strait song ”You Know Me Better Than That”.
In the meantime, I’ll see you on the radio.
Country legends Ray Price and Ray Stevens are sounding off about comments Blake Shelton made on his GAC special Backstory, which aired in December. According Yahoo! Blake made the comments toward the end of the hour-long show.
“If I am Male Vocalist of the Year that must mean that I’m one of those people now that who gets to decide if it moves forward and if it moves on. Country music has to move on in order to survive. Nobody wants to listen to their grandpa’s music. And I don’t care how many of these old farts around Nashville going, ‘My God! That ain’t country.’ Well, that’s because you don’t buy records anymore jackass. The kids do, and they don’t want to buy that you’re buying.”
Price fired back over Facebook, posting: “This guy sounds like in his own mind that his head is so large no hat ever made will fit him. Stupidity Reigns Supreme! Ray Price (Chief “Old Fart” & “Jackass”) P.S. You should be lucky as us old-timers. Check back in 63 years (the year 2075) and let us know how your name and your music will be remembered.”
Stevens issued a statement, reading: “I just heard Blake Shelton’s remarks about ‘old farts and jackasses’ and all I want to know is how he found out the title to my next single because it’s been a closely guarded secret here at the ‘Home.’ It will be available on vinyl or 8-Track at your nearest Tower Records store.”
Blake took to Twitter to clear the air, tweeting, “Whoa!!! I heard I offended one of my all time favorite artists Ray Price … I hate that I upset him. The truth is my statement was and still is about how we as the new generation of country artists have to keep re-inventing country music to keep it popular, just exactly the way Mr. Price did along his journey as a mainstream country artist … I could have worded it better (as always ha!) and I apologize to Mr. Price and any other heroes of mine that it may offended.”
