BIG CHUCK

I started at WDOS in 1989 and man has it been a fun ride.  Join me every weekday morning from 6AM to Noon for the best country music anywhere on your dial, plus fun stories, factoids, interviews with local and national figures and lots of laughs along the way.  ABC News pops up at the top of every hour to keep you in tune with what is going on in our world, and WDOS News Director DON PERKINS keeps his thumb on the pulse of the local news stories you need to know about.  It's a great mix of music, laughs and news every morning.  I start out at 6AM sharp and don't quit until I am outta here at noon...on my way to hunting down "a meatball with my name on it!"
