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 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…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day is the 20th Sexiest song of all time – but it’s title actually came from a restaurant menu item. Hear the rest of the story and the song at 6:40 on 101 Gold. The song’s writer was at Clyde’s Restaurant in Washington D.C. with a bandmate while his wife was having surgery for cervical cancer… (more…)

The 101 number one song of the day was released as a single because of audience reaction when it was performed in clubs.  It was released in the middle of February, 1974 but by the middle March it was dead on the charts.  So what happened to revive the song and get it headed to the top?  (stick around and find out next on 101 Gold.)  Suddenly it sold 50,000 copies in New York City because it became a huge hit in dance clubs.  Then radio DJs were scrambling to get a copy to play on the air – again.  Once that happened it shot up to the top of the charts reaching number one during this week in 1974 for the – pretty much – one hit wonder… (more…)

The 101 number one song of the day got it start in the bathroom – not because of the acoustics but because its writer and singer was making toilet seats at the time. (More on that next) He was a late bloomer who was working for Boeing manufacturing the fixtures for 747s when he got his first record contract at age 32… (more…)
