Don is back on the air! Don is a former graduate of Carthage High School. After graduation, he moved forward in the radio business and has been with radio for the last 46 years. He started off working for the former WCAZ radio station erasing tapes and filing records. While he was there, he would watch through the window to see how they ran the control panel and also observed them ripping and reading the world and national news. That got him hooked! Don then traveled to Chicago, on the train, to get his FCC license.There he qualified on the control panel and also learned to read the radio tower. One of his most embarrassing moments while working for the radio station was getting caught with his pants down. Don was riding his motorcycle from Hamilton to Carthage in the rain and he got soaked. He arrived at the radio station with no other dry clothes. He removed his clothing and covered himself, front and back, with large pieces of felt.The next thing Don knew a former state representative walks in and discovers Don. OOps! One of Don's favorite times was visiting the schools. He did this once a year to all local area schools. He would have stories prepared for the school kids to read on the air. Another favorite of Don's was doing remotes at the annual 4-H fair. We are glad to have you and all your experience.
