Gunner grew up in Chicago and left at age 20 to travel the country and work on-air. He's lived all over the place and is now happy to be planted and staying put. When he's not waking up early and hanging out with Gwen on the Lonestar 92.3 Morning Show and playing your favorite country songs, you'll find him in the office working behind the scenes... He is also Brand Manager for Lonestar 92.3 and our sister station, 99.9 KBAT. He's excited to be here and he and his wife Vicki are looking forward to exploring West Texas and taking it all in... playing mini golf, going to movies, or grilling on the patio with the radio on.
Are You Addicted To Social Media?
The best way I've heard it described is "You're seeing the highlight reels" from everyone. Typically no one is posting about when their kids sassed back or got in trouble, when they got in trouble at work, or when they've gotten into a fight with a significant other. It's usually all about little Johnny or Suzie's big achievement at school or in sports, or a family vacation, or a new car or house, a new job, etc. Something fun that we can all enjoy and celebrate with them. Not to mention all the cute pet pics and the funny memes. It's easy to get sucked it.
I Had To Call The Police On My Neighbor……
When I moved into the apartment I lived in temporarily before we bought our house-for the first month I was there by myself as my wife was back in Illinois taking care of wrapping up the sale of the house and taking care of any loose ends up there before the movers came to load us up and get us here. And there was one night that I had to call 9-1-1 on my upstairs neighbor at the apartment complex...
What’s Up With Gas Prices in West Texas?
Great picture, huh? Been a while since we've seen prices anywhere close to that here in the Permian Basin--even WITH discounts from certain retailers or clubs we're in at the grocery store to use points to save per gallon. While it's nowhere near what we were paying in Chicago (which is a relief!) it's still way higher than it was when we moved here last July. So what gives?
Local Heroes During a Crazy Week in West Texas
Everyone came together to help one another when conditions were at their worst. When I moved here last July--I saw the sign in the radio station from the last time the community came together in a tragedy. The one that says "Permian Basin Strong". Now I have a complete understanding of what that really means. If you have any stories from what neighbors did for you, or what you did to help neighbors--please share them with us at 8:50am weekdays on the show. Enjoy our big warm up and as always--God Bless and Thanks for Listening!
