Shawn Patrick Is Back on K99
After about a year and a half away from the station that made me want to be on the radio, I am super excited to say I am back on K99! It's nothing major, just a little afternoon show on Sunday afternoons from 3-7 p.m., but I sure am excited to be a part of the team again!
From the time I was a little boy, I dreamed of being on the radio. I would set up two or three cassette players and blast out tunes like Garth Brooks and Led Zeppelin. Although no one probably would have listened to my huge variety of music, I loved playing radio. The reason I loved the radio was because I loved listening to it. When I was listening, it was to K99.
When I went to broadcasting school they required us to do an internship, and there was no question where I wanted to do mine. I remember how starstruck I was as the first day on the job I got to work with my radio idol growing up, Brian Gary.
It is funny how things move along when you really want them. Pretty soon, I had my own show on K99, was good friends with the people I grew up listening to, and eventually even got to do the show I grew up listening to (The Good Morning Guys)!
Along with doing that show I have had so many great things happen with K99. I have been able to go introduce shows in front of thousands of people, I have gotten to meet my country music idols, I have been able to help raise awareness to child abuse via the 28 Hours of Hope, I have made lifelong friends, and even put on my own fundraiser for a cause that was near and dear to my heart.
After four years of being part of the K99 team, I moved on to start our rock sister station, 94.3 Loudwire. My new role came with a bunch of new responsabilities which took too much time to be on the country station. Although, the rock station has been great to me, I have made new memories, and I absolutly love it, something was missing... My country side. So, I asked the boss-man to get my fix in, and he happily gave me this little Sunday show.
I hope you'll spend your weekends with me! Thanks for having me back!
