I may surprise you one night with one of YOUR
"All Time Favorites!"
If you are a fan of WESC, this picture represents a span of years. Hopefully you recognize me and your morning wake up guy Charlie Munson. The guy to my left is Tee Gentry. Tee did afternoons on WESC for a number of years until moving to Augusta, GA. He's been there 18 years and is quite successful on Kicks 99 and oversees a number of other stations. As if he needs any introduction, the guy over my right shoulder is Kix Layton who works across the hall from me at our sister station WSSL. What you may not know is that Kix replaced Tee Gentry on WESC years ago......before going to the dark side. Ask him about Travis Tritt's "Drift Off To Dream." There's a great story about that song. The most attractive of the group is Megan Boardman, who is a great friend to radio and works with Kellie Pickler, Craig Morgan and other great acts you hear and see who happened to be passing through. It was a fun "Mini-Reunion."
Ohio State University's Marching Band is becoming known for it's spectacular Halftime Shows. Check out this salute to Hollywood.
It's Doug Stone performing at the WESC Family Reunion Show in the early 90's. Were you there?
Summer vacation in San Francisco at the Golden Gate Bridge.
This commercial from Budweiser allegedly only aired once. Budweiser has tons of money to produce great commercials including Super Bowl commercials the great "Real Men of Genius" radio spots. Say what you like, but on this anniversary...I still think this is moving.
Martin Truex Jr. was removed from the Chase for the Championship and Ryan Newman was added. That's the first time in the 10 years of the Chase that NASCAR has dropped a driver who qualified for the Chase.
NASCAR fined Michael Waltrip Racing a record $300,000 along with issuing penalties to all three MWR drivers - Clint Bowyer, Brian Vickers and Martin Truex Jr. NASCAR also placed the crew chiefs for all three drivers on probation. NASCAR also indefinitely suspended the team's general manager.
Michael Waltrip Racing did a series of maneuvers to lose positions to help Truex make the Chase. NASCAR determined what MWR did was against the integrity of the sport and sense of fair play and thus issued the major penalties Monday night.
I think it's safe to say, "Everybody hates change." Change can be anything from your favorite ice cream flavor no longer being available to the legendary George Jones no longer being with us and passing just weeks before an Upstate appearance.
It's also the little things that are really "no big deal," but make you realize "change" is always certain.
For years when I wanted pizza for supper, I went to the same pizza shop. I could always count on Dennis or Curtis to be there....and sometimes both of them. Dennis was an ol' rock and roller who many times served as Curtis's straight man. Curtis was full of laughs anytime I stopped in including turning off the lights and locking the doors, wearing a Halloween Costume and pranking me, peering around corners and more.
I realize there is going to be turnover in the restaurant business. In the past two visits over the past month I didn't see either Dennis or Curtis or even any familiar employee faces. I'm guessing they sold the franchaise.
Pizza is dough, sauce, toppings, and an oven...but the relationships you have with your customers is what keeps bringing them back. I'll miss the laughs a couple of times a month, but it makes me know that giving one hundred percent to a customer makes a difference. I know Dennis and Curtis had bad days over the years, but it never showed. Wherever they are, we can wish them the best and take a page from their book.
