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.
NORAD, The North American Air Defense System, has been tracking Santa for children since an error was made in a newspaper in 1955. That year, a company in Colorado Springs took out an ad inviting children to call and get an update on Santa’s location, but the paper printed the wrong number. It was the number for the military defense location that we now call NORAD. The servicemen and women on duty gave the children who called ‘updates,’ and a tradition was born! Mash right here to track Santa with your children. And I hope you have a Merry Christmas!
