On Saturday's show... My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys is episode # 88 beginning at approx 10:06am (PST) right after Melissa Chavez brings you local news headlines and then joins Vince today to co-host along with Tom Anthony. Tom is a former country music air personality for a former country music station in Orange County, KIK-FM, where he spent about a dozen years in the most enjoyable job he ever had. As you'll hear today, that's a feeling shared by any radio person who has been allowed to play this genre of music. "The people who listen to these stations always without exception love the music, and they also love the people who play it. We become an important part of their lives" according to Anthony, who was a Many Moods guest some 11 weeks ago. At that time, longtime Los Angeles country station, K.Z.L.A. 93.9FM had just did a format flip, leaving all the familiar voices of the station without an outlet. Some of them appeared with Daniels by phone to say goodbye to their listeners. Almost 3 months later, those same listeners continue to wonder if they'll ever hear their heroes again. On this show, they'll not only get to hear, but see them, thanks to KCAA-TV. Scheduled to appear are Ashley Paige, Peter Tilden, Shawn Parr, Whitney Allen, Brian Douglas, and Paul Freeman. Those that did not appear previously (Paige, Tilden and Freeman) will finally have their chance to say goodbye. But is it goodbye? With rumors abounding of a new FM Country station looming in L.A., we'll see how close that is to becoming a reality. This 90 minute "reunion party" will begin at around 11:30am and will continue to the end of the show. Your calls are encouraged and welcomed at (909) 888 - 5222. Behind those familiar voices are lesser known voices trying to keep this medium alive. In the 11 o'clock hour you'll meet two of them. Karen Oliver frequently posts on a site called Countryboards.com and heads a campaign that uses up most of her valuable time as she champions the fight to "Save Country Music." She'll be joined by Rich Gordon, who owns his own website dedicated to CMA Female Vocalist of the Year, Carrie Underwood. The site is CarrieNEWS.com and her talent will be spotlighted along with the likes of Vocal Group of the Year, Rascal Flatts; Entertainer of the Year, Kenny Chesney; Male Vocalist of the Year, Keith Urban; Album of the Year "Time Well Wasted" by Brad Paisley and Single (and Song) of the Year, "Believe" by Brooks and Dunn. While the focus this time will not be on the older classic country and bluegrass, Vinnie is nevertheless making good on a promise to his boss to play the slower version of "San Antonio Rose" by Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys. Former California Congressman, Robert K. ("B-1 Bob") Dornan, the longest serving member of the 47th district, will be along in the first hour to analyze this past Tuesday's mid-term election results.
