Well, I reckon it is real or at least it was when my alarm went off at 4 am this morning. I am the new co-host of the Waco morning show 92.9 Shooter FM along with Terry Hunt! We are the AM Corral. Get it? (It took me a second too, but it is a spin off of the O.K. Corral.)
The station used to be an mix format or “adult contemporary” as the radio peeps say, but now it is 92.9 Shooter FM–Home of Texas Country, The Young Guns & Legends.
Texas/Red Dirt music on Central Texas radio…along with some old school country songs from the 70s, 80s and 90s? Yipppeee! Do we play some Nashville stuff too? Yup, but I can promise you we play more Texas stuff than anyone else you are going to hear on the radio in this area. The station is brand spanking new and has only been around for 2 weeks, but the format has been getting great feedback.
Chris Austin from KORA in College Station is the program director and has his own ALL Texas/Red Dirt/Americana show the “Texas State Line” every evening. (Think KVET’s Roadhouse.)
The station will have a website with the ability to stream online too…very soon.
I am not sure exactly what to say because I have never worked in radio…much less co-hosted a morning show and I have only been on the air for one morning, but I can’t even begin to tell you how excited and thankful I am for this opportunity. It really is a dream come true for a smart ass blogging health inspector that throughly enjoys talking about the one thing she loves the most, Texas/Red Dirt music. I don’t have a clue what I am doing and I might suck and be ran outta town after a month, but just like Dolly Parton always says: You’ll never do a whole lot unless you are brave enough to try.
And I’m gonna try.
Don’t worry, I am still going to be blogging…insomnia be damned!
More about all of that as things continue…but it is Tiddy Bit time:
