Smokey Rivers
6am-12noon

Smokey RiversI grew up in Central Ohio and, at the ripe old age of 12, decided I wanted to be on the Radio. Got my first Radio job at 21 and it's been an amazing journey ever since. I've been married for over 25 years to a true Radio wife and have three almost grown kids who make me smile every day! There's only one thing that I love more than my family and Radio...the weather. If my math skills were any good, I would of been a TV meteorologist for sure. I've been dabbling in photography too. Social media takes up more of my time than it should but, I love talking with my listeners. So, find me on Facebook at Smokey Rivers and let's chat!

 

 


Mark Phillips
12noon-6pm

Mark PhillipsI first started in radio at age 14 working Part Time at my hometown station in Fairfeld, Iowa. I knew then I was hooked at being "On the Air." I've worked at stations in Iowa, Illinois, Florida and Dallas, Texas! My wife Heather and I have a 3 year old son named Austin Cole. I never knew how much having a child could change your life and really make you feel like you had a purpose. There's nothing I enjoy more than spending time with my family which also includes two dogs Buddy and Boomer. I grew up listening to Country Music and am a huge Country Fan especially of artists from the 80's and 90's! When I'm not working or spending time with my family I like to play guitar. I think a lot of people in radio are actually frustrated musicians--I'm one of them. I love to go to concerts and watch sports on TV. My son is turning into a NASCAR fan and loves to watch the cars go "vroom, vroom" around the track.

 


 


Trapper John

Trapper JohnI was born in Shreveport, Louisiana, but was whisked away to Peeksill, New York prior to my first birthday. Transfer’s through my father’s company, led to a few different hometowns before settling in the Dallas suburb of Garland, where I grew up. After graduating from the University of North Texas, I embarked on a professional radio career in the tiny North Texas town of Bridgeport. I currently live with my college-aged son, and is thrilled to be living near his mother, father, sisters, and brother. In my spare time, I enjoy movies and sports and TRY to maintain an active lifestyle. Musically, I enjoy New and Classic Country as well as Classic Rock.

 

 

 

 

 


Ray Mariner

Ray Mariner I grew up in Charlotte, NC and have lived in great cities like Cleveland, Orlando and Atlanta for jobs in radio and music promotion. I enjoy spending as much time as possible with my daughter Logan and son Jack. I like watching football, racing and virtually all sports, playing golf, going to Country and Blues music shows, travel and trying new restaurants. I took a break from radio and worked for Columbia Records as the Southeast Regional Promotions manager for 10 years.

Jimmy SturrAt the time that rock was reaching its crescendo, and in the era when Country was dazzling the nation, a strange phenomenon was taking place. In essence, this phenomenon was the rising popularity of JIMMY STURR as the hottest musical attraction in the polka music field. The reigning king of the field is a good looking, smiling charmer with brown hair, blues eyes and charismatic rays emanating from his presence. Sturr is the fellow in front of the orchestra.

And what an Orchestra it is! JIMMY STURR AND HIS ORCHESTA has over 106 recordings; the excellence of these recordings has been recognized and rewarded throughout the very competitive music industry. The fact that JIMMY STURR AND HIS ORCHESTRA is on the Top Ten list of the All-time Grammy Awards, has won eighteen Grammy Awards and has received more consecutive Grammy nominations that anyone in the history of musical awards has made the music industry sit up and take notice.

 

 


 

 


Todd Chambless
Weekends

Todd ChamblessI grew up in West Monroe, LA…and go back as often as I can to visit family. Radio folks normally move around more than most other professionals…so I had my share of moving. I’ve lived in cities like Wheeling, WV…Pittsburgh, PA…Columbus, OH, Macon, GA…and others in between. I’ve settled for Dallas-Fort Worth,, TX. My wife and I are actively involved in church…and we love music, traveling and being with friends. I’m a movie fan, so I love going to see new releases. I’ve always been in love with Country, Pop and Christian music…so, I’m always looking for new releases and discovering old favorites.
