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).

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was from a performer who was just the third British woman to score a number one on the U.S. Hot 100…and her singing career was launched with a reality show in 1979…hear more next on 101 Gold. It was a tutor at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama at Glasgow who convinced her to audition for the show – she had been working toward becoming a speech and drama teacher during the day and was singing in clubs at night. She sang her audition for the other two British women who’d scored number ones in the U.S. up to that point … (more…)

101 number one song of the day was the second song of the rock era to become number one twice by different artists and both of the songs were written by the same husband and wife team. (That’s next)  Carole King and Gerry Goffin first accomplished the feat with their song “Go Away Little Girl” which reached the top of the charts for Steve Lawrence and later Donny Osmond….

The 101 number one song of the day got to the top with the help of searing solo guitar work by Eddie Van Halen who did it for free.  (the song is coming up next)  He said, “I didn’t care, I did it as a favor.”  The man who wrote and recorded the song was so multi-talented that none other than the master of dance Fred Astaire, who lived in the same neighborhood when the performer was just a little kid said, “He is a wonderful mover… (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the day was written by a former roadie for Neil Diamond…and Neil Diamond passed on it! But Neil’s drummer thought it was a good song and later suggested it to two brothers who were self-trained musicians and they would take it to number one…hear the song next on 101 Gold. (more…)

The 101 number song of the day was a sequel to an earlier hit song for the duo that sang it – an interesting note about the duo…the male half was a constant through the years but there were seven different women who’ve played the other part…and they were all referred to by the same nickname – you’ll find out what that name was and hear the song next on 101 Gold. The duo was referred to as the “sweethearts of soul” after a string of hits in the late 40’s! Then they disbanded and the male half, Herbert Feemster, joined the police academy in Washington D.C. – (more…)

The 101 number song of the day is a song which is tied for the shortest title ever to make it to the top.  What’s more, it featured one of the shortest lead singers to rule the Hot 100.  (It’s next)  It was produced by former schoolteacher Freddie Perren and this particular song sounded just like a lesson in class.  And that’s the way Perren approached all his recording sessions saying… (more…)
