Steve West, 105.9 WGKX “Kix 106” Memphis | October 2, 2004
The good stuff… Lots of promos for the former morning show of (Jay) Young and (Brian) Elder & Capt. Pat Adams; a wide variety of Country music… the format there was really wide, with at least one (perhaps two, I don’t remember) “classic country” songs an hour and lots of recurrents and 90s gold. Kix 106 could afford to do that. After the demise four years prior of the only Country competition (94.1 WOGY Germantown), WGKX could certainly afford to have a broad Country appeal… especially with Nashville just two hours drive down I-40. And just LISTEN to how many more ballads and slow songs were being played back then compared to the almost Classic Rock sound of Country today! Lots of Toby Keith and Keith Urban on the air in 2004, and Shania Twain was getting airplay then, although not for long.
I never said it on the air, but this day it was my birthday. But I was doing what I loved most, and my son Josh was with me that day, so life was certainly REAL good!
Aircheck #1,325 since May 2, 2002!
