Country was hot in the early 1990’s. I found that out when I came to work for B-99.9 in the spring of 1994. I was just a kid a few years out of school looking for the next big radio gig. After doing some shifts around the clock and a short stint on then sister station AM 1290 WNLB, they decided I’d do well at night and I made the evening shift my home for the next three years. What fun it was!… Life changes and so I moved on in early 1997. I went on to work for a few more stations and I moved into management as a Program Director and later Operations Manager. I left radio in 2007 and since then I’ve worked in New Media and I work with people all around the world, helping them get started with Open Source and Linux computing.

I never forgot my time at B-99.9.

B-99.9 came under new management in 2019 and I was asked to return to radio to do my old show again. I couldn’t resist. Today’s evening time may not be quite as crazy as it was all those years ago but it’s still a lot of fun. After all, we’ve all “rowdied on down” a bit, haven’t we?
