Dave West (Weekdays 6AM - 10AM)
Dave began life as a surprise. Apparently, an unexpected one - but then, aren't ALL surprises unexpected?
His mother was undergoing a routine x-ray in an attempt to diagnose some stomach discomfort she'd been experiencing, when, lo and behold . . . there he was, probably making shadow puppets on the x-ray screen. Yes, that's right - blasted with radiation before even leaving the womb. Explains a LOT, doesn't it?
Dave's dream was always to pursue a career in radio broadcasting. He started in 1981 at a hits station in Silsbee, Texas. He moved on to radio stations in Beaumont, Houston, and Dallas, Texas. Today he enjoys playing great music and taking care of his listeners on Real Country 101.7. Follow Dave West on Facebook at Facebook.com/davewestradio and twitter @davewestradio
Doug Morgan (Weekdays 2PM - 7PM)
Doug began his career at the age of 4 at the dining room table of his home in Roanoke, VA. However, talking into a paper towel cone was not as satisfying as he thought it would be. He told his family members that one day he would be a DJ and they laughed and thought it was similar to wanting to be an astronaut. Still, his love of radio continued undaunted throughout his teen years when he finally landed his first on-air position in Rocky Mount, VA at the age of 16.
Since then, Doug has worked in radio and television in Virginia, New York, and Los Angeles. Today, he and his family have a small farm in Suffolk, where they raise goats and chickens and they attend church here in Franklin.
His love of radio has never diminished over the many years in the field, and Doug is very excited to be a part of the Afternoon Drive at Real Country 101.7.
