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...

popular by the great Evel Knievel.
The Alabama Daredevil freely
admits that the legendary Evel Knievel is a major influence on his own
tailor-made stunt shows. "Knievel was definitely one of the finest showman of
his era; not just with motorcycles, but with drawing in the general public's
interest," Blackwell said. "No matter how crazy people thought his stunts were,
I think that deep down inside everyone admired his courage and his unique
Love what you do and do what you love. I respect and admire BUBBA BLACKWELL for living the dream and doing it well.

If you get the opportunity to go see him perform...do so! Happy Landings, Bubba! You have been colored "Lucky" and blessed!
