Megan In The Morning!

Hi! I'm Megan and I am so happy to get to wake you up on Kickin' Country every weekday morning!
I'm an Army wife, New Jersey born and Southern Raised, and I am back up North and loving being able to play all the best Country music for your mornings! I love music (obviously!) my Husky, my horses, the outdoors, and fried chicken strips. I'm also pretty sure I could be best friends with Miranda Lambert.
Thank you so much for tuning in, and I hope I can kick your day off right!

Dennis Richmeyer

It all started one night in 1979 in a 12 room farm house in Watkins Glen. Up with a fever, and too cranky to sleep,a 4 year old "King of Bingo" watched the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson for the first time. That night sparked an lifetime passion for entertaining. Since that fateful night in the final days of disco Bingo has entertained countless fans, friends and people who just happened to being in the right place at the right time across the country both on the air and in person.
Bingo is the proud dad of 4 kids; Emma (the baby), Adam ( the teen aged jock), Andy (the musician and parton of the art), and Kyrstin (the responsibly married adult child). Almost every day you can count on a story from home featuring Bingo's favorite characters. Additionally, he still have brothers and sisters "on the farm" in Watkins Glen which provides more fertile story telling opportunities.
Join the "King" every day for good natured fun, an occasional Small Town Scandal, and the Red Dirt Report from 10-3 on Kickin' Country 105.3.
