KC Counts

KC just celebrated her 20th year in radio! She began her career as a fetus while attending Eastern New Mexico University in Portales. Her paternal grandmother’s family homesteaded there in 1912, the year New Mexico became a state! Two of “Mema’s” sisters and many other relatives still live there. KC’s Las Cruces roots run deep too as her maternal Great-Grandfather, Dr. Jerome Love was one of the Organ Mountain ranch owners. He traveled a large region in his mobile surgical unit (supposedly the first of its kind) and even made his way to Portales where “Mema” was – she was even acquainted with him long before the two families would merge in 1970 when KC’s mother and father married in El Paso just before he went to Germany during the Vietnam War. KC graduated from Burges High School (almost with honors) where she enjoyed a year on the flag corps, a year as a cheerleader and three years in theater and speech and debate (which is probably why she’s so darn argumentative). KC met up with Mike McKay in 1998; their first show together was on April Fool’s Day that year. They worked together until 2004 when Mike began at 101 Gold and KC began reporting news on KVIA. The opportunity to form Bravo Mic Communications and purchase 101 Gold brought KC into the Las Cruces radio market and enabled Your Morning Show to get back on the air! Hear KC with Mike weekdays 6-10 right here on Southern New Mexico’s #1 radio station. She would love to catch up with you on Facebook (can hardly keep her away from it according to her poor husband of 18 years). Clint works as a Lieutenant in the El Paso Fire Department and hopes to continue his flight training to one day fly commercially. We don’t talk about that too much because it makes KC a little nervous (you remember Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valenz, The Big Bopper, Jim Croce, Otis Redding, John Denver…you get the idea). Questions for KC? Feel free to email kccounts@101gold.com

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the day was written at the request of an actor who couldn’t get permission to use the song he really wanted in his movie – that was Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust”…[when you find out who the actor is – you’ll probably know what song we’re talking about… (more…)

The 101 number one song of the day was written and performed by a former soldier who was learning how to be a telephone lineman when he met the character who inspired the song you’re about to hear. They were at Fort Dix in New Jersey. The guy stayed there about a week, and one evening he turned around and said he was really fed up and tired… (more…)

The 101 number one song of the day came from what was, essentially, a family act. But during the recording of this song something happened that would change the family forever. The group consisted of 3 brothers, their cousin and a high school friend. The band was managed by the brothers’ father who ruled with an iron hand. Problem was, one of the brothers was one with all the ideas and as he grew… (more…)

The 101 number one song of the day received high praise from the writer of the song it knocked out of the top spot – Neil Sedaka. This song’s writer was not a stranger to the attention but nevertheless was pleased by Sedaka’s remarks.  The year was 1975 and Neil had been on a roll with his own recording comeback as well as compositions for other musicians. His song for the Captain and Tennille, “Love Will Keep Us Together” had been ruling the Hot 100 for four weeks before giving way to the song that dethroned it this week of that year. Sedaka said of the new number one… (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was the first U.S. Number one for the artist who performed it and it would go on to become the top selling single of 1984. The artist was asked to write a song for an upcoming rock musical drama – starring that very artist – the director wanted a song to match the theme of a particular segment in the film which involved intermingled parental difficulties and an affair. By the next morning he would have not one… (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was initially only played on pirate radio stations because its lyrics were considered too suggestive…but it all started with the guitarist recording the opening riff in a hotel room. He said when he listened back to it in the morning, you could hear about 2 minutes of acoustic guitar and then 40 minutes of snoring – but he took the tape to his writing partner and soon they’d have their first number one in America… (more…)
