Good Afternoon, Chuck:

Looks like everything is going well for you.  "Full Throttle Country" is something I read quite regularly and gives me a lot of insight in a lot of different aspects of radio. I enjoy it tremendously. Chuck, I've been in radio almost 33 years, most of it spent in the Pacific Northwest.  I'm not completely out of work, but I do draw unemployment after losing two jobs due to layoff (6 years from 2001-07 mornings at oldies KDCQ Coos Bay and after 5 months in November, 2008 from AC KCST Florence OR).  During that time, since 2000 actually, I've been working weekends and some fill-in at KKNU Eugene.  I love country music and want to be a country radio personality on a regular basis.  Thanks for your help, Chuck.  Continued success to you, and Happy Holidays!
