The Greatest Hits
Kool Gold 1510 WLKR delivers the greatest rock & roll hits from the 60s and 70s, and select tunes from the early 80s. It’s contemporary, feel-good music, loaded with outstanding personalities who are upbeat and fun.
We play timeless artists like the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Creedence Clearwater Revival, the Beach Boys, and Motown superstars. You’ll also hear classic songs by The Eagles, Rod Stewart, Elton John, and Stevie Wonder.
The songs may be classics, but our DJs are totally in-synch with today’s lifestyle. They talk about what’s timely and topical, adding a new dimension to the music we love.
MIKE SHAW: Mike has been working in radio and television for nearly 40 years. Mike not only loves radio & TV he’s also a huge fan of music! He’s got a huge record and CD collection (much to his wife's dismay) along with the best sounding state-of the-art audio equipment. Mike’s also an active runner and a biker, and just loves being outdoors.
JJ McKAY: JJ has been working in radio and television in a full or part-time capacity since 1977 when she graduated from Ohio University with a BSC in Radio/TV/Journalism. JJ enjoys doing mobile DJ gigs since she can engage the crowd in a live atmosphere & see everyone smiling while having so much fun! She also loves spending time hanging out with her pets as well as hiking, alone or with her significant other.
JAY FOX: Jay has enjoyed playing the hits for 4 decades now. He is so driven by music and the history of Rock & Roll, he loves to play music trivia with anyone willing to play. (Hint: He knows his stuff!) Married for 31 years to his lovely bride Regina, their children have grown and gone on to very successful careers themselves. A volunteer with the fire dept. and rabid baseball fan, his secret goal in life is to visit every ballpark in America to rate how nice the parking lots are. He’s recently been elected Mayor of Rock & Roll Radio by his 27 fans who have never met him but like his voice. (If they only knew)
SCOTT O’BRIEN: Scott literally grew two inches in one day at age 15, when doctors straightened a curve in his spine and took him from 5’11’ to 6’1’. The extra height and his deep voice helped him land a radio job while only a high school junior. By 20 he was on the air in Chicago. Scott is into history and golf, books and movies, and music ranging from Steely Dan to Maroon 5 and Sinatra. He’d like to see the Broncos in the Super Bowl again and the Cubs win the World Series. (It’s good to dream big!)
KENT RICHARDS: Kent’s love of music, the entertainment industry, and electronics has made his 30+ years in radio less of a job and more of a fun hobby. He’s also a big fan of most sports as a spectator & a player, keeps up on the latest in cars & planes, can’t get enough of any cool new technology or gadget, and loves to relax with a good book. Kent’s especially proud of his four beautiful children and the exciting paths they’ve taken with their lives.
