Getting Spooky with Big Joe

Big Joe & Reba (Who had more hair?)

We’re thrilled with our new websites!  Posting funny videos,  crazy top 10 list , great information on family and health everyday has been a blast.  Then a few days ago, the boss man said to us in a meeting, “You really need to be more personal with your blogs, tell us something we don’t know about you.”  So around here, when the boss makes a suggestion, it usually happens pretty quick!  I was thinking about this last night and since it’s Halloween, here’s what I came up with:

For Nearly 30 years, I’ve been asked more than a few times, “Big Joe, how did you get a job on the radio?”  I kinda chuckle every time the question comes up, because  Halloween 1980 is the reason I’m on the radio today.

In the small town where I grew up, Kosciusko, Mississippi, it was actually a lot like Sonora.  Everybody knew everybody’s business, we all attended the same churches, shopped at the same stores, went to the same schools.  A nice community with good people, just like we have here in the Mother Lode.

Halloween was always fun, but I was a little too old to trick or treat at 15, so this particular Halloween I decided to go to the annual Haunted House across from the police station.  There was this old abandoned 2 story house the city turned into a haunted house every year.

I didn’t know the local radio station was going to be there that Saturday night.  The radio station was 1340AM- WKOZ!  They played Top 40 music and the Jocks name was Gary “Spaceman” Pace.  As people were coming out of the haunted house that night, Gary would shove a microphone in their face to get a reaction of what they had just seen inside.  Then…it was my turn.  I have no idea what I said, all I remember is he put the microphone down after I spoke and told me I should talk to his boss about a part time job after school.   I kinda laughed and went on my way.  Well, that  following Monday after school,  I took Gary ” Spaceman” Pace” up on his suggestion and asked Mom if she would drive me to the radio station to put an application in for a part time job.  I’ve  been in the radio biz ever since.  Spooky huh!

Happy Halloween!
