My blogs 

I’m a Missouri boy, born, bred & lifelong. (If you don’t count 4 or 5 wayward years in Southern Illinois.)

I started working at a hometown radio station in Cape Girardeau while I was in high school, and have managed to avoid getting a real job ever since.  I’ve worked at Clear 99 for a long time, and been with Zimmer Radio even longer.  I joke about it making me feel old, but I’m to the very gratifying point in my career that I now meet people who listened to me in the car with their parents, and now they listen in the car with their kids.  I can’t think of a better compliment.

Outside of work I spend a lot of time on a bicycle, on the beautiful trails and country roads of Missouri.  As is inevitable at my age (50-ish), my health has become more of a focus for me.  You won’t have to listen long to hear me trying to convince others about the benefits of a good bike ride.

The life of Jerry Seinfeld has fascinated me for several years, James Bond has fascinated me for several decades, and I am an unapologetic fan of the animated shows of Seth MacFarlane. (Family Guy, American Dad & The Cleveland Show)  If I had kids I’m not sure I’d let them watch, but I love them!

I believe that there is a God in Heaven that created this world and everything in it.  In his wisdom he has chosen to bless me with a life that I nowhere near deserve, and I don’t thank him enough.  But he has given me the tools to do this job, in this place, at this time, and that makes me a happy man.



  1. Catryna you and my mom would get along great!! We are both big Kenny Fans and my mom is a big Def Leppard fan. She got my 2 and 3 year old hooked on them too, their favorite song is “Rocket” 🙂 Love that you’ve joined Scotty in the morning!

  2. Never too early to start listening to Def Leppard! And thank you so much Beth; I’m super excited!!

    With my Sailor nominee being so grateful last year, I hope that the Adopt A Soldier For Christmas program will be picked up again for 2018.

    We have just returned from a trip to Texas, which made me realize how much we enjoy listening to your music! Scotty you and Catryna have just the right mix of talking and great country music. While we were gone it was hard to find a good country music station that didn’t spent too much time talking and not playing music! It was great to return and getting to listen to Clear 99. Great job on playing the best country music. Enjoy your humor and talk, but not a constant talking!

  5. That’s so nice of you to say, and take the time to post Kristy! We REALLY appreciate you listening when you can! – Scotty
