hit radio the wurx jocks

Hi I'm Jeff Kelly, from WASHINGTON

 

I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, F.M. Radio was still in it's infancy & A.M. Radio was Huge. I grew up listening to THE BIG 610 KFRC in San Francisco.  Some of the Biggest names in Radio passed through that station. I was inspired by these Iconic Legends.  I thought in my youth that I would like to someday be one of those who played that memorable tune that takes someone back in time or makes them jump to their feet and start dancing. In the late 80's to early 90's I got my chance. I was now working at KHQT HOT 97.7. F.M.  What a great time that was. I really loved Radio BUT, unfortunately it wasn't enough to pay the bills. 

 

About 5 years ago I got another break, Shawn DeAngelo who I used to work with at HOT 97.7 contacted me. He said he had an Internet Radio Station. After talking to Shawn for a while I was on the Overnight shift Midnight to 6 am. Monday-Fridays on San Francisco's 70's Hits. 

 

I then found Radio somewhat evolving again, while searching the internet I found a station that not only had Audio but Video as well. There was a chat room where the DJ could interact with the listeners.   I thought WOW. This is something new I might want to pursue. After some Research I had the chance to be on 3 of these types of stations.

 

On February 11th 2017 I started my own station. HIT RADIO THE WURX. This is a Labor of Love and I couldn't have done it without the help of some very good friends, TheYeti and ShiGuy. They both put their Hearts and Soul into this Station. They are true friends and I am Grateful to them both. 

Hi, I am ShiGuy, from Oregon

Hello from the beautiful Oregon coast! Living out here is like living in paradise. Not California, but you get the point. I am a firefighter by trade here at our local fire department

and its the best job in the world! In my off time, I enjoy spending time on the beach with my family, hiking, kayaking, camping and just about anything outdoors.

I got my start in radio many years ago sorting carts for a small station back in Laurel, MT. Later, I went on to work as a mobile DJ, doing the club scene as well as karaoke, weddings and parties. I was given a fortunate opportunity

to spend some time at Griz 101.5 in Missoula, MT but due to changes in commercial broadcast radio, the station did not survive. I like to think of myself asquite the entertainer, both on and off the air.

More recently, I was talking radio with my friend Jeff, who told me all about this awesome

internet radio thing. Long story short, I was brought on for Friday nights on The SeaCoast,

and I had the bug again. After a few guest spots on Vintage Sounds and various other

internet-based stations, I have found a home here at The WURX. I have even taken The

WURX on the road, doing our first live remote broadcast in September of 2017. The

possibilities are endless!

I have the best opportunity here not only to do something I love doing, but I also get to do it

with friends. We already have a great foundation and I am looking forward to the future of this

station!

Hi, we're Lone & Jewels, The Classic Couple
and we hale from Texas

We use the name The Classic Couple due to our love of “Classic” music from the 60s, 70s, 80s and beyond.

Lone is a Texan born and raised and a skilled tradesman   Jewels is a New England transplant.   We met through our love of internet radio and the rest, as they say, is history.  We were married 2012.

Jewels nurtured her love of music while working with a New England radio station, WLHE, and Lone started his love of DJing in 2009 casting on some of the early Internet casting sites.  Lone and Jewels began to cast together on various internet radio stations and eventually on their own station.  

 In 2014 we were casting together when Jeff Kelly happened to catch our show and a friendship over our common love of radio soon followed.  Eventually Jeff recruited us to cast a regularly scheduled show on the station where he was currently casting.  

In 2016 we began casting on our own station as Vintage Sounds. In 2021 Jeff invited us to broadcast on Hit Radio The WURX.
