WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE RADIO PERSONALITIES?
Larry Lujack, Pete “Mad Daddy” Myers, Gary Owens, Clyde Clifford, Wolfman Jack, Orson Welles
DO YOU MODEL YOURSELF AFTER ANY OF THESE PEOPLE?
I am not sure I would say I copy anyone. I do try to take a page from Larry Lujack because he had a great delivery and that world weary sarcastic wit. I think a radio personality needs a quick wit and a certain degree of sarcasm. Larry was great and I listen to his old broadcasts for inspiration for sure. I have seen many interviews with Larry and he and I seem to have a lot in common.
Pete Myers was an incredible talent, before my time, but the recordings I have heard suggest he was the best.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN INTERESTED IN RADIO?
I would say about all of my life. I loved listening to AM radio as a child, in my early teens I got into shortwave radio and I have old cassettes of me doing “radio shows” from when I was around nine or ten years old.
WHAT DO YOU THINK MAKES A GOOD RADIO PERSONALITY?
I think first of all you try to appeal to everyone. Stay away from politics, religion, controversial subjects and keep most of your own opinions to yourself. Be fun and have fun. Know something about the music you play. Make time for listeners when they call, email or come to see you. Let listeners know you have the same daily struggles that they do.
WHAT OTHER JOBS HAVE YOU HAD?
Factory worker, security guard, pawn shop manager, construction.
HOW DO YOU WANT TO BE REMEMBERED?
A guy who loved music, had a good sense of humor, intelligent, put in a days work for a days pay.
CHEREE CARTER: (2pm-10pm) Cheree started her radio career in the sunshine state of Florida 15 years ago. Since then she has graced the airwaves coast-to-coast and in between. Cheree also has enjoyed figure skating on-and-off competitively all her life, and she owns two horses that she rides & shows in competitions in English Pleasure and jumping. She’s a die-hard NFL fan, one of the biggest animal enthusiasts, and loves all kinds of music. Cheree’s also known as “Super Aunt” with two nieces that are simply beautiful inside-and-out.
BRUCE PALMER: (10pm-6am) Bruce’s 30+ radio career started in suburban Philadelphia on dual passions…good time rock & roll and old cars. Now with a personal music collection of more than 60,000 tunes, a garage packed with a dozen antique cars, and loving radio more than ever, he’s living the dream. When Bruce’s not on the air, he’s probably playing with his dogs & cats, sitting back to take in a baseball game, spending time with his wife and two daughters, or most likely, out in the garage under a hood. You see, he really is radio’s original “car guy.”
M.G. KELLY – WEEKENDS
M.G. Kelly began his radio career in 1970 while still a junior in high school. His first station was KTEN in Ada Oklahoma. There, Kelly played song dedications to schoolmates. A year later, He was hired by KOMA in Oklahoma City. While at KOMA, he came to the attention of radio mogul Lee Abrams who brought him to Cleveland in late 1972 for afternoon drive at WGCL-FM. The following year, radio consultant Kent Burkart presented Kelly to KSTP-FM in Minneapolis, as M.G. became part of the team that drove the 16th ranked station to number 2 in just 100 days. This dramatic ratings increase caught the attention of RKO Radio and 21-year-old Kelly was shooting straight to the legendary 93 KHJ in Los Angeles.
Two years later, while still at KHJ, Kelly began studying acting and soon landed a role as the venomous D.J., “Bebe Jesus”, co-starring with Barbara Streisand and Kris Kristofferson in the 1976 film, A Star is Born. Next came a departure from the typecasting when Clint Eastwood tagged him as the Priest, “Father John Voss” in The Enforcer. Within a three year period, Kelly proceeded to act in eight more feature films including The Buddy Holly Story and The Fifth Floor. He also was cast in nearly 50 guest star roles on prime time television.
Kelly hosts two weekend shows on 98 Gold.
