The upstate is pretty much home. I wasn't born here, but the family moved to Greenville 40 years ago when Dad took a job in the textile business. Went to J. L. Mann High, then saw my daughter graduate from the same school. I started in the radio business after one semester of college, which I found out was too hard. (College, not this!) I was lucky to get started here at WESC 30 years ago, and haven't found anything else I really wanted to do more. And I like the things we have on WESC ... I do like country music, I do like racing, I just don't like getting up at 3 am.
Wanna take some hot laps with Marty Ward? Of course you do! The six time Greenville Pickens Speedway champion will be at the Anderson Motor Speedway from 4 – 8 Saturday afternoon with a specially prepared hot rod. It’s got an extra seat; they’ll strap you in and Marty will take you around the track at a ridiculous rate of speed! I promise you’ll enjoy the ride.
