I often tell people I have never worked a day in my life. That’s because I have been doing what I have always wanted to do since I was 15: radio, from playing 45s when I was in high school, to working with one of the country’s largest radio corporations now. I was born, raised, and still live in West Calcasieu. I am a child of the ’70s, so being on the air at 92.9 The Lake is the perfect radio job for me. Since 1974, I have worked at some of the best stations in our area, with some of the best people
I am a Detroit native who got into radio in the mid 1970s after a stint in the U.S. Army. My favorite artists include The Four Tops and Bob Seger. My career stops have included Kenosha, WI; Bloomington, IN; and Ocean City, MD; before landing in Lake Charles in 1994. My wife Ginger and I have five cats: Hokey, Pokey (that’s right), Lady Jane Grey, Nefertitti and Brutus (Buckeye). Needless to say, we go through a lot of cat food! I still root for my hometown sports teams, the Detroit Tigers and even the Detroit Lions, and I also enjoy watching college football
Casey has been telling us what song is number one for decades, and we are replaying all those great American Top 40 shows from the 70′s … rebroadcast just as they were back when. It’s amazing that Casey actually kept every show and now we can re-live all those great countdowns every weekend on 92.9 The Lake! Casey “recounts” the hits every Saturday and Sunday morning from 9 a.m. till noon!!
Dick Bartley was once given the key to the city of Lake Charles … and for good reason! Dick has been a Saturday mainstay for a long time now and folks here consider him part of the community. Rock and Roll’s Greatest Hits is six hours of fun and great music and a super way to spend a Saturday evening!
I didn't mean to get into radio. A friend of mine owned a waterbed store and there was no one else to do the voice on his radio commercial, so I did it. The next day, I was in radio. I didn't so much enlist as I was Shanghaied. I had no idea that I would still be sitting behind the microphone all these years later, but there's the microphone and here I sit. I always tell people that I get to play music and act childish for a living. I've worked in Beaumont, Austin, Chicago and a few other places, but I really feel at home here and I do love being part of the community
