I wish I would have brought some of the desert heat back with me, but it's good to be back! After eight long months of not being on the air due to a military deployment to Afghanistan, I am excited to say that I will be back on the air Monday (Nov 17).

I want to thank everyone who supported our unit, the 442nd Fighter Wing from Whiteman AFB during our deployment. Your support was felt from thousands of miles away. To everyone who sent care packages, getting one of those was usually the highlight of our month, thank you for spending your hard earned money to ship a package over. It was great to come back and to see all of the local businesses and restaurants that had changed their display signs to welcome us home. I have said it numerous times, but this community truly is the best!

Now that the deployment is over and I have had some time to get back on a decent schedule, I am looking forward to getting back on the air. I'm excited to bring some fresh ideas to the airwaves and to have fun with you.

I will be back on the High Noon Saloon on Better Country KIX 105.7 from 10-2, The Afternoon Drive on 92.3 BOB-FM  from 2-7, and will help cover SFCC Roadrunner basketball games. Flaming Friday's with Kevin Walker will return every Friday on 92.3 BOB-FM from 4-5. I will have another big announcement coming soon, but you will just have to wait for that one! I hope you will join me and listen whenever you can.

Like I said before I left, "it was never a goodbye, just a see you later." Now, it's more like "Honey, I'm home!" Thanks again for all the support, let's have some fun!
