Mornings - Big D and Bubba

When you're sitting in the car wondering if the person in the next car over in traffic thinks that you've lost your mind because you are seemingly laughing hysterically to yourself, or sitting in the parking lot at your destination waiting for us to finish a topic, silly phone call, interview, game or conversation.....We are right there with you. And with you all the way. We know how crazy life can be....and we want to be your goofy, chubby, best radio-friend refuge from the harsh reality of being pulled 100 different directions by your spouse, kids, boss, coworkers, etc.

If you are new to the show,...um......hi! We hope to get to know you, and hope that you put up with us long enough to get to know us as well. Click on the bio's below to learn a little about each of us. If you've been a friend of ours for awhile, still click below, and see how well you know us!

By the way...because EVERYONE asks us.....We met in 1996 in Baton Rouge, La., where Big D was hosting a morning show and Bubba was hosting afternoons. We immediately hit it off, both on and off the air, and ended up pairing up to co-host a show together at the ripe old ages of 24!

Middays - Greg Fletcher

I'm a Michigan native but I first came to the beautiful north in 1989. Even though I spent most of my time in radio playing other kinds of music, I'm most impressed with the passion and appreciation Country music fans have toward their favorite performers especially Big Country listeners. You guys are simply the best. My wife Brandy and I live in the straits area and we have 2 boys, Gabe and Eli. We love having movie nights together and in the summer we hang out with the family at the "old" country cabin on Mullet Lake.

Afternoons - Susan

I've been in radio since 1987 after graduating from Specs Howard School of Broadcast Art and of all of the formats I have worked, this is my favorite. I love Country Music....everything about it, the artists, the songs, the concerts and especially the listeners! My favorite artists include Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw, Rascal Flatts, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban....well, too many more to list! When I'm not working, I like to watch movies, read a good mystery, kayak, bike ride, hang with my family, camp, and sing karaoke.

Fastlane - Nascar Steve

Steve has reported live from 44 races at MIS, Bristol's August weekend, Champions weekend @ Homestead-Miami Speedway, Martinsville in October, the Milwaukee Mile, and the Cup Series Points Banquet in New York. Media credentials in hand Steve has also tracked down some of the biggest stars of the sport including Cup Series Champs Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, and Rusty Wallace just to name a few! In 2003 he got behind the wheel, attending Richard Petty Driving Experience and Track Time Driving School at MIS and in 2005, made the second cut for Reality Racing: the Rookie Experience reality TV show on Spike TV.

Steve's NASCAR notoriety hasn't changed the fact that he is a LOCAL personality; he has hosted over 450 live events, attended numerous nights at local tracks including Onaway, Cherry, Merritt, Kalamazoo and Northern Michigan Speedway, and helped promote the 2008 Chick-Fil-A Kyle Petty Charity Ride kickoff in Traverse City.
