Sloppy Joe

Sloppy Joe

Sloppy Joe is in a band that is still together to this day with all original members. He left for a short period to be a judge on American Idol, then went on to make a country album. Oh, wait, that was Steven Tyler of Aerosmith.
After taking a wrong turn at Albuquerque he found himself here in the Illinois Valley and decided to stay. Much to the outrage of many residents, he lived amongst the creatures in the woods in Ladd with his invisible pet unicorn. After being successfully darted and tranquilized, Sloppy Joe was brought to the Studstill media radio personality sanctuary where he can live out the rest of his life in peace. Please don’t feed the animal!! Join Sloppy Joe for the Morning Mess weekday mornings from 6 until 10 a.m. Don’t miss news at 6, 6:30, 7, 7:30 and 8 a.m. hours, birthday bash at 7:20 a.m. and The Back in Time, Time Machine Ride at 8:50 a.m.

Gracie

Gracie Anne was born a local, but has spent a significant amount of time in other places on the west coast where she got her kickoff in radio. As just a little whippersnapper in high school, she was already entertaining over the air. When she isn’t (on classic hits?) you can catch her watching extensive amounts of baby sloth videos while sipping on a macchiato over ice!

The Czar

The Czar is from Macomb Michigan about a half hour north of Detroit. Graduated from Oakland University as well as Specs Howard School of Media Arts. Enjoys playing and watching sports, and during his free time away from the station you can probably find him out on the golf course.

Tank

Growing up in Earlville amongst the corn fields, Tank finds himself home on ‘The Big Blast with Tank’, afternoons on Classic Hits 106. In his spare time, he works on a collection of old Chryslers from the 1960’s that may or may not be on the road at any given time. Tank currently resides in Mendota with his wife and daughters.

Annie

Annie was born and raised in Peru, IL.  She landed in radio by sheer luck working for WLRZ (now WBZG) in the early 90’s. She moved to Phoenix in 1994 and graduated from the Academy of Radio Broadcasting in 1996. After that she began working for KNIX/KCWW/Real Country Network for a couple years.

Annie returns to the Illinois Valley after being gone 15 years. She is a HUGE Chicago Blackhawks fan, often found screaming at her TV during games. Her proudest moment is when her beloved Chicago Cubs won the World Series. She is mom to two teenage man-children who keep her on her toes and test her patience daily. Her greatest fear is showing up on a “People of Wal-Mart” photo display.

Casey Kasem

Casey Kasem

When you think “radio legend”, you think of National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame inductee Casey Kasem. On the air for over 50 years, Casey founded the radio staple American Top 40, which continues to be the most relevant source for pop music hits. To this day, there is no better way to experience classic hits than with Casey and the Classic American Top 40 Countdown.

Music fans relive their pasts and enjoy the songs that never get old, spun with style by the most iconic voice in radio history.
