Bad Radio! BAD!

For most of my life, I've been known as a radio guy. Rest assured, the only kind of radio I know how to do is the bad kind, but for some reason, my skills kept me in the business for over 22 years. I was an on-air personality, or (he says with righteous indignation) "D-J." I always hated that title, I've never been a disc jockey. Jockeys ride horses. Records were never called discs, until CDs were invented.

I've done morning shows, mid-day, afternoons, night shows, overnights, weekends... from city to city. I was never really too picky about where I worked, as long as it was radio. I loved the music (still do) and really enjoyed entertaining people. Sorry, let me put that in quotations, "entertaining" people. Some didn't find it very entertaining. Screw those people!

Occasionally, the bug bites and I feel like doing it again. Today and tomorrow, I've been asked to fill in for the afternoon drive show on 93.7 The Bull in St. Louis, MO. Feel free to tune in between 2 pm and 7 pm central. The station streams it's signal at www.thebullrocks.com. Click "Listen Live."

If you hear a guy named Dave Louis, that's me. I change my name on-air to protect the innocent. It has nothing to do with the IRS, child support enforcement or witness protection program... as far as YOU know.

Don't expect much, it's been a while.

I'm SOOO tuning in Dave! We wanna hear that sexy radio voice of yours! :-)

Umn.. and there is nothing wrong with any of those organizations you mentioned. I "might" work for one of them.

I *may* have to edit my post about voices!

And, I have heard on-air personalities who are absolutely obnoxious (why is it always those perky morning women?); the personality matters as much as the music.

BG gets PD. Dave gets a gig. Sweet! What a great week in St. Louis radio! I'll tune in for sure.

Dr. Mike said...

You've alway and will continue to be "DJ Dave" to the clan... so ENJOY it!

We'll talk on the air later. You ARE doing that spot on cat farts, right?

Used Hack said...

Oooooooo, I'd love to call in a make a request. I don't know any country music, so I'll have to do some Googling.

How about a trucker song for Teddy Bear? :)

now, will this be a kid friendly show? like, if i bring in a radio to listen in the classroom while the kids work, will there be any mention of lesbians and/or superintendents soliciting prositution?

Chris Johnson said...

I will be listening even though I am not to crazy about country music! But I really do want to hear the segment about cat farts!

Bob2837465 said...

okay, so no mention of lesbians or out-of-grace school administrators, but i have to admit, the "sexual dysfunction" commercials are a bit much for my middle school students to handle with a straight face....

Man, how cool that you're a celebrity and all. I'll bet you get tons of cooter.

Lightning Bug's Butt said...

Holy cow. I just heard you on The Bull. Mindblowing.

Dave Louis?

Mindy said...

DAVE...you're my hero!!

phoenix said...

Just heard you on there! I had an idea your voice was deep and sexy but now I know for sure ;-)

Less music and more talk!! Grin

Trinette said...

I'm listening. But I already heard your voice first thing this morning. (On a Power 97 id).

Sounding great, as usual!

Trinette said...

Seriously...the word verification on my last post was gobul (Go Bull!) Now how likely was that?

Lee Ann said...

I wish I could have heard it Mr. Louis, I am sure you did great!
Now, ride 'em cowboy!

paula said...

Dave - Mike and I have been listening all day and still no mention of your favorite friends? You were my shower buddy, remember? I see where I rank!

OldHorsetailSnake said...

I listened for a couple hours. As so many others have said in the past, your voice is remarkably good, so easy on the ears.

And it was ESPECIALLY nice that The Bull is a country station -- Hoss's all-time (and only) favorite kind of music.

I'll check in again tomorrow.

Diana said...

Didn't get to listen but for a few randoms moments here and there, but I actually got to hear your weather forcast for "Bill's Garage"! Anyway...you're doing a great job!

Mishka said...

I just heard you...totally not what I thought your voice would sound like...it is very radio-like...guess that is good, huh?

You are doing the spot for the Valentine contest.

CP said...

Post some audio on the blog, Dave for those of us who didn't get to hear it!

*pouts*

CP.

Spinning Girl said...

Bravissimo.

Even Intern Zach thought so.

Heidi said...

Go thome too late today but I am totally there tomorrow! You superfine, supersmarty pants.

Used Hack said...

I agree with Phoenix. Your deep, sexy voice was just too much.

But what the fuck? Did you play my trucker song while I was in the bathroom or something? :)

It's Me, Maven... said...

Impressive!!

StringMan said...

I'm listening to you as I write. You just played Leeann Womack. Cool.

You know, I kinda thought you had a face made for radio ...

Amandarama said...

Hey! I just heard one of your breaks. You just plugged the Blue Collar Comedy tour and went into Leanne Rimes. Neat!

i just said...

dave said something funny about "larry the cable guy" and then went "into" leanne rimes. oh no. ALL his dreams have come true in one afternoon.

Raynwomaan said...

So, Thursday afternoon found me with a little extra internet time. But I haven't had a chance since then to come back to say "Very nice".

Sometimes, you can get an idea of what a person's voice will sound like from their picture (or maybe that's just me). And once I read that you were an "on air personality", I was pretty certain you'd have that rumbling undertone in your voice. People (men mostly) who talk a lot (for jobs) get that after a while. It's very pleasant to listen to.
