MORGAN has always been a morning person so this job
is perfect for him. In fact, he credits it with keeping
his marriage together for 26 years. His wife says if he
was at the breakfast table everyday she’d been out of there
long ago. His daughters will second that. The boy does like
to talk! He started waking people up on the radio years
ago when he realized that he didn’t have to sweat. And now
‘Morgan in the Morning’ enjoys misbehaving with his listeners
on a daily basis. “The free coffee and internet ain’t bad
either”, he says.
Brooks had always had a passion for music, current events
and chitchatting with anyone walking by. So she found a
way to mix them all together and somehow get paid for it.
Radio! It all started at her college radio station 'spinning'
traditional country music and she grew to love and appreciate
it. Her idea of a perfect evening is a delicious Italian
dinner and camping out on the couch with the family watching
a great, funny movie! She wants to keep plugging away at
radio because her two young daughters think their mom has
a really COOL job!
Svendsen has been captivated by radio since receiving
his first portable for Christmas as a child. He says it's
the first (and still the best) mobile communications device.
He's fastened radios to his bicycle handlebars, strung antennas
through trees, and broken more radios than most people will
ever own. Tad began broadcasting while still a teen at a
country station in South Dakota. He's gone on to play all
kinds of music at stations across the nation, but he always
comes home to Country music. It's his job to make all of
the show just as entertaining as the music he plays. Tad's
been known to spend too much money on cars and not enough
on haircuts. He enjoys looking after the family farmland
each summer. Tad is single but hasn't yet given up. He lives
with his border collie Grady and just about every gadget
he can find. He usually has two or three radios all playing
at once, and he's still looking for the best way to attach
one to his handlebars.
Mitchell grew up being utterly and completely enamored
of radio BUT decided to go into nursing upon graduating
from high school. The thought of going into radio never
even remotely crossed her mind: She grew up never hearing
a woman on the air, ever, in any capacity. In nursing school
at Colorado State University/Pueblo she heard the new morning
person at KILO FM and it was…a woman. And lo, the world
suddenly had one less nurse and one more radio person. Penny's
parents never quite got over that. Penny's first ever radio
job was at a country station in Pueblo as the worst overnight
jock in the universe. She has gratefully spent the majority
of her almost-30 years in radio working with country music,
which possesses the nicest artists and BEST listeners!
Morrissey loves everything about his life, except beets
and his neighbor’s barking dogs. A long time radio and TV
guy, spends his nights on the air and his summer days driving
an old ’64 Ford Falcon convertible. And, if Irish eyes are
smiling, John’s are laughing their eye brows off. When he
is not having fun on the radio, John plays the snare drum
in an Irish pipe band. You haven’t lived until you’ve seen
him in a kilt.
