Todd Never Dreamed It Would Turn Out Like This [PICTURES]
When I started in radio I just thought it would be a good way to meet girls. I never dreamed it would turn out to be a 30-year Hall-of-Fame career with my best friend in the World. I was just 20 years old when I started at K99. It wasn't even K99 then. We were KUAD99 - The Power Station. In 1988 Brian and I became the Good Morning Guys on K99, Colorado's Country Favorites. We have changed the slogan many times over the years but Brian and I have never changed who we are and I think that is why it it worked.
I dug deep for these pictures.The picture above is when I first started on the air I was 20 or 21 years old. It is in the old K99 studio, which is now the home of our sister station, Tri102.5. The one below is Brian with Sammy Kershaw at the Estes Park Rooftop Rodeo in 1992.
The black and white is a very old picture too. It was taken by our good friend Wendy Purcell. I am obviously on the air with Brian because of the microphone I am using. I was also wearing my favorite Michigan sweatshirt that an old girlfriend stole from me.
Brian and I accomplished a great deal in our career, but nothing would have been possible without my lovely wife, Jenny! I honestly don't deserve her. She has been my biggest supporter, my personal photographer and my MVP for the past 28 years. Who knows where I would have ended up without her constant love, support and ability to forgive. She is the kindest, strongest, smartest, most beautiful person I know, inside and out. Thank you Jenny Lyn. I love you with every part of my being.
Jenny and I were actually a set up from a K99 listener, so I guess I owe K99 for the most important person in my life.
It is going to be so hard to say goodbye to Brian at the last Habajeeba Show at the Union Colony Civic Center tonight. Together we have done more than any kid from Holyoke, CO could have dreamed of. The letters and messages we have received over the past couple of weeks have reminded me how much we have had a place in everyone's life that listens to K99. I to say thank you for that. I will never take it for granted. The Good Morning Guys are no more, but the Northern Colorado community will live in our hearts forever. I can't say it enough. Thank you! Thank You! THANK YOU! I truly have lived a charmed life.
I am forever grateful.
