Joe hails from the Nation's Capital, Washington DC. It was while at college he decided radio was his calling. His first radio job was at Oldies 100 in Washington DC, working in promotions. He moved from promotions to producer for Goldy’s Rock n’ Roll show. After four years, Joe moved to the green mountain state of Vermont and Classic Rock 101, The Fox, which gave him his own show. He then moved on to a radio job Cedar Rapids, Iowa before returning to DC. In fact, he was back in DC contemplating his retirement from radio when he got a call from The Radio Group. Joe worked afternoons on sister station WALLS 102 before joining The Morning Show on WGLC.
Darcy started radio after the city morgue was converted into a radio station in San Angelo, Texas. Working her way across Texas at stations in Lubbock, Amarillo and Corpus Christi; she saved some money, packed a truck and drove it to Dallas to try the "big show". A few months later she got the coveted overnight weekend slot at ABC Radio Networks and wouldn't stop until she became a Radio Disney producer, then a Today's Best Country morning show co host and after all that hard work (and proof she's a sucker for punishment) a show of her own. Middays are more than background noise cuz Darcy gets your listeners to pick up a phone, send a FaceBook message or e mail what they’re thinking, place an order in Darcy’s Diner, get goofy for prizes and have Happy Fun PartyTime. Need a last minute update? Not a problem!
On the side, Darcy looks to mud up her Jeep, find a trail to run, a road to cycle and spoil her two mutts, Moose and Einstein. If you want results, you want Darcy to do it.
