To our listeners,

    Thank you for making “Best Oldies Radio 99.1” one of your favorite radio stations! Getting where we are has been a labor of love, in the making for eight years. However, we are never done with our efforts to make it as good as we know how.

     That “know how” comes from many years of working in Columbus radio from 1971-1993,  at stations like WTVN, WNCI, WRFD, WMNI and WCOL, and having been surrounded by some of the best DJ’s that ever cranked a turntable and talked their way into your hearts.

     A bit of personal information; I am a lifelong south-sider and my roots here go deeper than just the neighborhoods and the streets paved with bricks.  By that I mean the people; I grew up surrounded by some very interesting ones, and I was educated alongside many of them at Siebert Street School, Barrett Junior High and Columbus South High School.

    If ever there should be a poster-boy for “Southside Dirty Butts” I am your man!

    Once again, by that I mean I never folded my tent or gave up on this place even when many did and moved on to what they believed were cleaner and safer neighborhoods, or just ones with fancier homes and prettier lawns. I’ll die here, satisfied that it was all worth it, to hold onto what has always defined me.

     Loyalty to where I came from, doing all I can to preserve what is still great about it, and never forgetting the best times, nor the best people I ever knew.

    These things were instilled in me decades ago, and holding onto that playbook saw me safely through two decades as a lawman following my broadcasting career, and what has pushed me all these years to try new things, take a few chances and ultimately become a published author.

      And now here I am: carrying a Medicare card, should I become ill or disabled, slower, but no less determined to do the things I want to, or need to, and that same resolve I had when I was a 19 year old DJ, to make my contribution to great sounding radio matter, if only to you and me!

     And finally, I never got around to filing off the rough edges of my personality. I still say what I feel, and I worry none about others opinions of my opinions. My language is “colorful” at times and I stopped worrying about other peoples causes a long time ago. From here to my own finishing line I will approach life occupying my time with issues important to me, still watching over my family the best I can and amusing myself when time allows.

      After all of that confessing I hope we can be friends, and that you keep enjoying the radio we make for a long time to come!  Thanks Leonard Harrison, my computer Guru for busting down so many firewalls to make all of this possible.

                   Rick Minerd,
