Danny Merrell

I’m a native Texan and proud of it. I was born and raised in the BBQ Capital of Texas, Lockhart, but I’ve been in East Texas for about 25 years, so this is where my family and I call home. I have a patient, beautiful wife (she’s a Big Sandy Wildcat) who has kept me in line since 1994, plus I have three great kids, even though they were the cause of my premature balding and greying. I went to college at UT-Austin and Texas A&M, mainly to become a meteorologist. But my love of country music took over, plus, in radio, you never have to grow up. As strange as this may sound, my perfect day would be to spend an entire day in a theater watching nothing but Disney movies. Bring on the popcorn!

A Dad’s Letter To His Fallen Son After Hearing Of Bin Laden’s Demise

The events of the past 2 days have been monumental for many Americans.

I thought I had heard or seen all the different types of reactions to Osama's death, but then I saw this letter on another station's website.

KYSS is one of our sister stations located in Missoula, Montana. It is there where you'll find Denny Bedard.

Mr. Bedard lost his son in the war in Iraq, and upon hearing of the death of Bin Laden, Bedard felt compelled to write a letter to his son. The text of the letter follows:

Average Cost Of A (Non-Royal) Wedding In America – $24,000!!

The price of a wedding can vary greatly.

If you go for a Justice of the Peace, a backyard reception and a honeymoon at the local hotel jacuzzi suite, you can save quite a lot of money.

Even for those that splurge, I would have never guessed that shelling out nearly $25,000 is what it takes for the average wedding these days.

Sugarland Battles Newcomer Kip Moore On Today’s Daily Duel

Sugarland takes 68% of the vote in defeating Glen Templeton in yesterday's Daily Duel. But, I'll be the first to say that Templeton has a great career in country music ahead of him. I've only listened to a few songs so far on his new CD, and this young man has a huge amount of talent.

So, now Sugarland tries for their 5th straight victory on the Duel as they take on relative newcomer Kip Moore.

Happy Birthday To The Man That Helped Me Be A DJ – Roy Orbison [VIDEOS]

This is it.

This is the album I played over and over and over as a kid, and in no small part, was the reason I chose radio as a career.

I would sit in my parent's house and pretended to be a DJ while introducing songs like 'Running Scared', 'Only the Lonely', 'Uptown', and many others on my pretend radio station.

Saturday, April 23rd, would have been Roy Orbison's 75th birthday. As Bruce Springsteen mentions in one of the attached videos, so many wanted to sing like the rock-n-roll legend from Vernon, Texas...but, nobody could ever sing like him.
