Howdy. It's been my distinct pleasure to be in radio since I was just a kid. The fact that I've never really had to work for a living is a big comfort. I started in a small station in Thermopolis, WY and never looked back. I've pretty much always been enamored with small market radio. It's a profession that allows you to do nearly every single job, and hopefully excel at most of them. I'm proud to be associated with such a GREAT country station as KCGY Y95. Southeast Wyoming, Northern Colorado and Western Nebraska are truly fortunate to have such great quality Country 24/7. I'm always happy to throw the older stuff in with the top 20 selections we bring you. Thanks for listening the THE BEST COUNTRY IN THE COUNTRY. AND GO POKES!
Earl Scruggs – Heaven Has Another Banjo Player
They call them "Big Bang Moments", those instances in the stream of history where something big happens. Think when John Lennon met Paul McCartney. Think when Penn met Teller. Think when Lewis met Martin. The world is unaware at the time, but the world would look back and say, "something truly history changing happened there'. It is the same when Lester Flatt met Earl Scruggs. Read
Reba McEntire – Happy Birthday!
It's time to take a moment and offer our congratulations to the talented Miss Reba on this March 28th. Reba is a very young 57 years old today.
Jake Owen – Performing “Alone with You” on Jimmy Kimmel
It used to be that a country artist would find it very hard to be featured on television. Then came CMT and everything changed rather rapidly. I'm still fairly impressed that so many country acts are appearing so often now on a wide variety of shows.
Elvis – Summer Tour to the Holy Land
The King has been gone lo these 35 years. But his popularity is still pretty much un-dimmed. In fact, his legacy is still so popular, that organizers are arranging a tour of the Holy Land featuring gospel groups that performed with him in his heyday.
Shania and Lionel – Great Song and Video
Well, it doesn't hurt that Shania Twain has a million-dollar voice and a 10 million dollar face. But it seems that there was only one artist featured on Lionel Richie's new album hitting the streets today that needed some convincing: Shania.
Miranda Lambert – Bringing Some Country Girl Power to TV
So, it turns out that there is this daytime show on CBS called The Talk. I was unfortunately unaware of the show, it being broadcast during my time on the air. But anyway, it's being repoerted that Miss Miranda will co-host.
Taylor Swift and The Band Perry – Mega Song Sales
Anyone who had any doubt about the power of these two new country talents can pretty much put them to rest. According to Yahoo's chart watch, both have racked up an incredible amount of sales.
Kix Brooks – Sidelined by Vocal Chord Injury – Ronnie Steps In
It's what's known as an occupational hazzard. If you're a singer, those vocal chords are your bread and butter, your rice and beans....your paycheck. And if you ever have a problem with them, you have to take it very, very seriously. That's the case with Kix Brooks as well, and forced him to cancel an appearance.
Friday Fun Pack Song
Here is a snippet of the song to be listening for during the 9 AM hour.

Country Classic Performances Returning to the Ryman
One thing I've always enjoyed about country music is its been in existence for decades in its present form. It's really been in existence for a century or more if you count the original folk songs. And it's always changing. Now, there's word that Opry Country Classics is making a return to the Ryman Auditorium stage.
