Austin Radio ‘Pirates’ Face Stiff Fine From FCC

There's an old Country song titled, "You Gotta Have a License." This is true for any commercial (or non-commercial) radio station in the U.S. Well, a couple in Austin felt that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules regarding licensing for the FM broadcast band didn't apply to them, so they put a "pirate" radio station on the air. That is now going to cost them a substantial amount of money.

Happy National Radio Day!

You're probably unaware of the fact that today, August 20th, is "National Radio Day."

Yes, the medium that started all electronic media to come after, has its own "national day." From Marconi's first transatlantic transmission of the Morse code letter 'S' ("..." or, dit-dit-dit) in 1901, to today's many choices for music, talk, sports, etc., radio is still the majority of peoples' choice for entertainment and up-to-the-minute news and weather reports.

Time Flies…

One year ago, on Monday, October 1, 2012, I stepped into the KIXS 108 studio to become the new morning personality. I knew this wasn't "just another radio gig;" KIXS 108 has been the #1 station with listeners in the Crossroads region for years and years. Before coming to South Texas, I was the afternoon drive personality at KDXY-FM (104-9 The Fox) in Jonesboro, Arkansas for almost 9 years...also, the #1 station in that market.

“Time Flies When You’re…”

"...on certain types of medication!" I've been using that line for years (even though I am not currently on any medication)! But the "old" version of that saying must be true, because today (April 1, 2013) marks my six month anniversary as your humble Morning Show Host on KIXS 108! I really don't know where the time has gone!
