Leesa Mitchell Loves being WAKY!  After moving to Louisville with her family in 67’, she discovered the fun lovin’ sound of waky790 AM and eventually became inspired to embrace the radio business as a career. During over-twenty five years in broadcasting, Leesa has co-hosted several top rated morning shows, as well as other successful day-parts in the Louisville market, handled promotional and program director duties as well. The Derby City Diva name came about as a result of a Facebook contest to name her mobile DJ and Emcee business. A self professed crazy animal lover, she also enjoys her family and meeting wonderful waky listeners. Send her a request for her Diva’s Diner Show at Noon!

Happy Summer to You!  Did you know June 24th is "Mid-summer?"
Although Midsummer Day, June 24, occurs only a few days after the summer solstice, to the farmer it was the midpoint of the growing season, halfway between planting and harvesting, and therefore an occasion for celebration.

One of the four Quarter Days in the Celtic calendar, this was a time to hire farm hands and servants, collect rent, hear law cases, and settle accounts.

Originally a pagan festival, it was later adapted by the Christian Church to fall in line with St. John’s Day on the 24th, on the eve of which men and women would come to church with lighted candles.

Midsummer Eve bonfires are an old custom still observed around the world today. Did you know: A “bonfire” was traditionally made with bones instead of wood and called a “bonneyfyre.”
