Tune in weekday afternoons from 3pm to 7pm for The ROD BUBBA Show! A few laughs and a dinner bucket full of great Country Music!
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 during The ROD BUBBA Show!
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...

When this photo was taken...I had already been bitten by the radio bug. It gets in your blood and if there is a cure...I don't want it. I use to do imaginary interviews and spin my Jerry Lee Lewis, Beatles and Elvis records on my Symphonic record player...three speeds...78, 45 & 33 1/3 rotations per minute. My mother would call the local radio station where we lived and let me request a song. I thought it was so cool talking to the guy from the magic box...asking for the McCoys and then hearing Hang On Sloopy...a favorite of mine at the time. After moving to Somerset in 1969, I remember taking my transistor radio to bed...putting it under my pillow and listening to Wolfman Jack overnight on scratchy AM stations until our local stations came on at 5am. In the winter...waiting up for the station to come on to see if we had school or if we got a snow day...long day usually followed because we rarely got out for anything. The radio was always a companion...a trusty friend. A voice...a song...a magical voyage to other places. They say that radio is the mind's eye. It certainly continues to fill my mind with wonderful visions and I hope it does the same for you.
