Les Cook - Weekday Mornings 6a - 10a
I came back home in 1987 and worked part-time all over the place around Louisville, including WTMT, WRKA, and WAVG. I ended up at WSLM in Salem, Indiana for 3 years, then bounced out of there for WSHE in Miami. Great Station, great people, and Tons-O-Fun for Everyone!! But Miami turned out to be too far from home. I came back to Corydon and went to work for WMMG in Brandenburg before getting the Production Director Gig at WRKA in Louisville in February of 1994, did the Production Director thing for almost 10 years, and now, as the old Harry Chapin song goes...”I AM THE MORNING DJ ON WAKY." Playin’ all the hits for you wherever you may be!! I love this music and the fun, up-beat style of 103.5 WAKY! I grew up listening to those legendary stations The Big 79WAKY and WKLO, and I was inspired by the likes of Gary Burbank, Bill Bailey, Coyote Calhoun, Johnny Randolph, Brother Love, The Weird Beard, The Real Tom Dooley, "Dude" Walker, Bo Brady, Lee Masters, Mason Lee Dixon and all the others who created and refined this up-beat and fun style of Rock and Roll Radio! They were on the cutting edge of Top 40 Radio back in the day and these guys are heroes to me. To all of those people I say "Thank You!". You were an inspiration to me and countless other "Jocks" who love this wild game we call RADIO! I also thank the owners of W&B Broadcasting who not only allow, but actually encourage, this style of radio in an era of consultants, tight play lists, and "Just shut up and read the card!" programming. We have fun here at 103.5 WAKY and you can bet that every weekday morning at 6, I'll be right there with you, brothers and sisters.
IT'S WHAT MY DADDY DID AND IT'S WHAT I DO, CAUSE I'M LES COOK - RADIO BRAT!
