Here's a shot taken on my 17th birthday (December 24, 1972) on the air at Top 40 station WEKY in Richmond, Kentucky. I worked Saturdays 6:00-10:00 a.m. and Sundays 6:00 p.m.-12:00 midnight from the end of 1972 to the first part of 1973. What a geeky kid! This was my second gig in radio. Rich Gimmel was the PD who hired me. Dan Mason was the PD who fired me. Both are very cool guys.

Here I am approximately 3 years later on the air at WCBR AM & FM in Richmond, Kentucky. WCBR was a country station, and I was the program director and midday DJ. (You gotta love those Spotmaster cart machines, complete with lock-in levers.) WCBR was my fourth job in radio and the first one that paid a salary. Phil Herald was the GM who gave me the gig.

Flash forward to 1979 when I did mornings at country-formatted WAXU in Georgetown, Kentucky (which marketed itself as Lexington's country station). This was the second time I had worked at WAXU. I previously did evenings in 1973 and 1974. WAXU AM & FM were owned by Bob Johnson.
