Greetings from your friendly neighborhood (Wes) Styles. On-air weekdays from 6-10 AM on 97.9 BOB-FM and 2-6 PM ROCK 96.7.
Recent implant from the Emerald Coast of Florida before that I spent several years just south of here in Springfield. So I remember the cold and the winters and such. But hey, the summers are nice up this way and way less hot than the 125 Heat Index (on average) we had in Florida.
Below you’ll find my latest writings about various news from the world of music, weird, and viral hits around the web.
Enjoy and kill some time at work or wherever you’re viewing this.
