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.
Country Hall of Famer, Ray Price, one of the finest singers in any genre of music, (“I Won’t Mention It Again,” “For The Good Times”)says he has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and has undergone chemotherapy to treat it. The doctor told him that most men will have cancer if they live to be old enough. This is the only part of this story that I really love! Price says he doesn't know why he got it. The 86-year-old-singer says he "ain't old." I doubt I’ll make it to 86, but if I do, I hope I can say I ain’t old! Price has canceled touring, but he's planning to visit Nashville in November to begin recording a new album. I believe he’ll do it!
