I'd e-mailed "Sonny Martin III" (Matt White) several times, with no response (until now!), but, rest assured, he IS a busy man! You may have heard him a time or two on an aircheck or ad here & there on this blog. He's now at KWCK, 99.9, "Quick 99", from 6 until 10 AM, Monday through Friday. He's also working at the Lindsey Resort in Searcy, AR. I feel honored that he could drop a note on us!
Here are some comments from the last "Sonny":
THANKS FOR THE E-MAIL AND LENDING ME YOUR EARS A LITTLE BIT IN THE MORNINGS! THE FRIENDLY GIANT WILL ALWAYS BE FILLED WITH MEMORIES FOR ME. IN MY 11 YEARS AT KAAY LOTS OF FUN STUFF TOOK PLACE AND THE BEST THING ABOUT IT WAS I GOT TO SHARE IT WITH LOTS OF FRIENDS LIKE YOU. THINGS LIKE THE NECCESSARY ACCIDENTAL CREATION OF BEAKER STREET, THE FIRST AND LAST SKUNK FESTIVAL, THE DOWNTOWN BEAT TEXAS PEP RALLEY WHEN GEORGE (George J. Jennings bs) WAS '' CUFFED " BY ATT. GEN. JIM GUY TUCKER, MEETING AND WATCHING WOLF MAN JACK WORK ON KAAY, AND WELL, YOU GET THE PICTURE!
EVERY MORNING WAS A NEW EXPERIENCE AND THE SAD THING IS THEY DON'T DO IT ANYMORE..LIKE WE DID..BY THE SEAT OF OUR DRAWERS!
GOOD TO HEAR FROM YOU AND COME SEE ME AT LINDSEY'S RESORT,
I think that, since the KAAY we grew up with is no longer owned by the same folks, nor is using any of the deejay's patented names, he was able to take the airname with him to KWCK. He's now, "Sunshine in the Morning, Sonny Martin". I've been able to stream him and listen in a bit in the mornings.
Here's the link I use (I had to use the cached version, to get around the "no streaming" where I currently listen!):
Give "Sonny" a listen and let him know you were also a regular KAAY fan!
Thanks, "Sonny III", hope you'll stop by here, as well!
