The Ride Home with Rod and The Bobby Bones Morning Show on Power Country K93...we get you coming and going!
Enjoy the ride home from school or work by listening to K93! I promise you two things...the best country music and fun! If it is happening in Somerset and around the Lake Cumberland area...I will be talking about it. You just never know who may be dropping in on us!
I got my radio license October 2, 1981 and became the chief announcer for WSCC FM in Somerset. I worked for a couple years at WDMC FM in Richmond. I began my radio career at WSEK back in September 1985. Back then, WSEK was 96 Power Country. It later changed to 97 Power Country... years later... 97 Power Country became Power Country K93..... 93.9FM. With my broadcasting degree from Eastern Kentucky University folded and stored in an old Merle Haggard album, I had three options...get a job in radio, become a poodle groomer or draw a crazy check. Radio was a bit more fun than grooming poodles and to earn a crazy check was more honorable than "drawing" one so the journey began...and so it goes...

...was given to me yesterday by my dear friend, John Slavey. It is a simple, unassuming U.S.A. made Best China model EE coffee cup by the Homer Laughlin company. It is thicker than today's modern cups and it holds about half what they do...but this cup has a story. Years ago, downtown Somerset had full service gas stations and diners and stores. The Slavey's had the Gulf station on the corner next to the old Methodist Church. Next to the Gulf station and attached to the wall of Ramsey's...was a little burger joint called the Krystal Kitchen. Hamburgers were a nickel. It later became the A & R Grill but...when it was the Krystal Kitchen...they served coffee in cups just like the one Mr. Slavey presented to me. In fact...his cup to me IS a cup from the old Krystal Kitchen. I'm looking forward to my first cup of "go go juice" this morning...and every morning. Merry Christmas everyone! Merry Christmas!
