The Moby in the Morning Show
Moby in the Morning is the hugely popular family-fun, friendly, and good ole’ morning show that’s on The Storm, 97.5 weekday mornings from 5am-9am.
Moby, President of Moby Enterprises, Inc. and creator of "The Biggest Small Town in AMERICA" Radio Network, has a 25-year history as the top morning DJ.
One of the original "shock jocks", Moby worked in Rock and Top 40 before dropping that way-overdone shock persona like a hot potato. He moved to Country in 1991 and found what he calls his "true radio home and real love."
Once Moby’s morning show began appearing in home towns across America in the 90’s, he travelled the country and visited with his listeners.
Moby says, "When I traveled to these towns, I was greeted by people standing in line who seemed to feel as though they knew me and came to see me like they were visiting a relative they hadn't seen in way too long."
"Reflecting back on those days and those appearances encouraged me to develop a concept for radio that will provide the backbone of America with the sort of radio show they can appreciate and feel comfortable listening to with their entire family. Because of my diverse background, I know what touches these people, what moves them, what makes them laugh and what will bring them back every day…a unique, innovative radio show designed for the millions of listeners in small towns of all sizes all across America."

It's a happy accident that I'm in radio. In college I was lucky enough to have a scholarship with the music/theater department and was studying to be a recording engineer. My dad worked for NASA making sure the astronauts could talk back to mission control, so I've been around sound equipment all my life.
One day I visited the on campus radio station to drop off some music that I had just recorded. The manager pulled me aside and asked if I had ever considered being on the radio and I said NO! But he offered to PAY me and so....my radio career started! It's still kinda crazy that I get paid to do something I love!
I love all kinds of music, but have a special place in my heart for Classic Country. I think I know the words to every song I play. Probably my personal favorites are the Outlaws! Folks like Willie, Kris, Waylon! I joke often about how Patsy Cline music is the best to sing when you are doing Karaoke. I say that, because I know first hand, it's a crowd pleaser and no matter where you go, folks sing along with you! Dolly and Merle will always be my two favorite writers and Gene Watson, is by far, my favorite honky-tonk singer.
In my free time, I love movies that are worth two hours of my time, play guitar, enjoy 5k runs, coloring outside the lines and hitting things....softballs, tennis balls, etc. Oh, and in the last year, I've enjoyed shooting things! Going to Ladies Night at the gun range is one of my greatest pleasures! I often bring my targets to the studio. Let's just say, no one messes with me.

John St. John
The first '45 that I ever owned was, "Big Bad John" by Jimmy Dean and the first song I ever played on the radio was, "Mama Tried" by Merle Haggard. I am Classic Country through and through and I love radio. My father told me not to be a DJ because I would starve. (His brother was a DJ and...did starve a few times) At first I listened to him but I had the bug and eventually started my radio career. The first job in radio that I experienced was taking the station out of tape automation and playing the broadcast of network football...you know, playing the local commercials and identifications. Simple enough but believe me I could mess even that up. Eventually I further paid my dues by doing six hour overnight shifts and sometimes doing two six hour weekend shifts back to back...cause I loved it so much. So here I am now on your radio, still playing country music and I still get to play "Big Bad John" and "Mama Tried." I have two boys that live in Nashville so I get to go to Music City USA often and do the tourist thing just like everyone. I love my job. I love playing Classic Country music...most of the songs I grew up in radio, playing as current songs through the years.

Ten-year-old boys dream, and this one wrote a letter to a radio icon at the time, much to the amusement of friends and family. The laughing stopped and the dream began as I stood in my driveway and opened up a return letter from Arthur Godfrey. He told me to stay in school, work hard and pay attention the voice inside me. He had given some good advise to Patsy Cline on his Talent Scouts show, so I took it to heart.
I've always loved music, and my earliest hero was Rick Nelson, who was inspired by Hank Williams, so my country roots were growing. I did form a trio with my brother Rick and a friend, and after some touring and making a demo tape, our manager told us Capitol Records was interested in signing us! Turns out, Uncle Sam was also interested in signing this singing Lieutenant Leary, commissioned out of college, and so I won an all expense paid Southeast Asian vacation to Chu Lai, Viet Nam! How could I refuse?
I have been privileged to share the airwaves across the country with a number of fine stations, and it all comes down to this. If I can bring the music to life for you, introduce you to the thoughts and voices of these great Classic Country artists, and maybe inspire just one more ten-year-old boy, like my heroes did for me, I've had a good day on the radio!

Dee was born a music lover! Her mother was a big country fan and had a beat up old second-hand guitar that
