On Air

Gavy Scates

Our newest on-air personality is the bright and bubbly Gavy Scates. She shares her love for classic hits on weekdays between 4pm and 6pm.

When she's not on the air, she's meeting with local advertisers and helping them plan their advertising campaigns, and with local non-profits, helping ensure that their messages get shared among the community too. She'll also often be seen when we're doing outside broadcasts.

And when she's not at work, she's at home in her "rural paradise" where she keeps goats and generally enjoys a lovely lifestyle. She also enjoys going away for romantic weekends with her husband, assuming their respective schedules align.

Simon Desoto

Simon is usually to be found on our sister station, 96 Country, in the afternoons, but will occasionally help out with us on Happy Radio too.

David Rowell

Station Manager David Rowell can occasionally be heard on air. You'll quickly recognize him - he's the one with the distinctive accent. :)

David comes from a radio family, and has been heard on air around the world. He moved to the US from New Zealand in 1985, and regrets taking so long to ultimately move on to Texas, where he arrived in early 2022, and plans to stay.

Murphy,Sam & Jodi

I am a busy working redheaded mom/wife/friend who’s never really grown up at heart!! Doing the show is probably the perfect job for me – since I love to “play” here with the guys every morning. Murphy and I couldn’t stop gazing into each other’s eyes when we first started, so we got married (seriously, he’s my best friend). We have 2 beautiful daughters who challenge and delight us. We also have 5 dogs (can you say pack?) that we are in love with and addicted to. I am passionate about saving homeless animals, binge watching tv shows and getting a great deal on clothing & shoes. I was raised a country girl, and she does still live inside of me.


Welcome to my happy place.

I’m a “y’at”…born and raised in New Orleans. Murphy and I teamed up in 1992 and Jodi joined the fun in 1997…the rest is history. My part: I bring the funny, clean humor, sarcasm and a very cynical view of the world. I also try to lighten the mood when we tackle serious subjects…it’s my way of dealing with the world. I’m a single dad of 5 great kids, and my favorite ways to enjoy my free time are cooking, grilling, photography, watching football on Saturdays and Sundays, everything electronic, working in the yard and garden and of course my collection of Chucks (Converse Chuck Taylor All Star shoes). Jodi says I have many layers like an onion…could be why I’ve been divorced three times.

I am married to Jodi (my favorite redhead) and love to spoil my two daughters, Taylor and Phoebe. I’ve known Sam for the better part of two decades, and married Jodi in 1999. I’ve been called Mr. Safety, Mr. Diplomacy – and occasionally Mr. Paradox because my passion rules my heart. Working with Jodi everyday is not a problem for me – and my favorite time is still dinner with the girls after school.

Rick Dees

Rick Dees Biography
Comedic performer and renowned radio personality, Rick Dees has made an indelible mark in the entertainment world with his captivating enthusiasm and quick-witted style. His #1 internationally syndicated radio show, The Rick Dees Weekly Top 40, is heard each weekend by more than 70 million people around the world, including virtually every city in the United States, 125 countries, 27 massive ships at sea, and on the Armed Forces Radio Network. Dees’ familiar voice and multitude of characters have become a mainstay of the American psyche and have even extended into Beijing, China becoming the first English speaking radio show to entertain Chinese listeners on weekends.
Dees became the hottest property in radio when he began hosting the top rated morning radio show in Los Angeles on KIIS-FM in July of 1981. In a short time, he turned KIIS-FM into the #1 revenue generating radio station in America with an asset value approaching one-half billion dollars. With unprecedented ratings success, Dees garnered many accolades, including Billboard Radio Personality Of The Year ten years in a row, the Marconi Award, the National Radio Hall Of Fame, and his induction into the National Association Of Broadcasters’ Hall Of Fame.
His latest ventures reflect his expansion into the digital realm, expanding distribution of his own abundant entertainment content, as well as launching many online digital channels presented online via the newly upgraded hub of all things Rick Dees, Rick.com.
Rick Dees’ introduction to the international entertainment arena began during the disco craze of the late 70’s. Dees wrote and recorded “Disco Duck,” the award-winning runaway hit that sold more than six million copies. This platinum recording earned him a People’s Choice Award, and the BMI Award for record sales in one year. In 1984, Dees received a Grammy Award nomination for his comedy album, “Hurt Me Baby – Make Me Write Bad Checks” and has since received the Grammy Governor’s Award. His other comedy albums – “I‘m Not Crazy,” “Rick Dees’ Greatest Hit (The White Album),” and “Put It Where The Moon Don’t Shine” have also enjoyed worldwide success.
In television, Dees hosted his own late-night show on the ABC television network in the early 90’s, “Into The Night Starring Rick Dees.” He has guest-starred on “Roseanne,” “Married With Children,” “Cheers,” “Diagnosis Murder,” and many other hit shows. In addition, Dees hosted the popular syndicated series “Solid Gold” from Paramount Television, and his voice has been enjoyed on numerous animated features, including The Flintstones where he starred as Rock Dees, and Jetsons: The Movie, where he played Rocket Rick.
In feature films, Rick Dees had a leading role in La Bamba, portraying Ted Quillen, the young man who helped launch Ritchie Valen’s career.
While his ingrained sense of the absurd and his fervent love of comedy have earned him top ratings in every city in which he has performed, Dees also has become a consummate businessman and entrepreneur outside the radio world. He is the founder/partner of the Fine Living Network, which is now the Cooking Channel on Scripps Networks. He is also the founder of DDN – The Dees Digital Network, the online engine that drives Rick.com.
An avid outdoorsman, Dees is passionate about preserving the open land in America. He is also a farmer, raising both crops and cattle in central Kentucky. He loves water skiing and golf, and has a handicap of 6 on the links. He even caddied at the Masters in Augusta for Mark O’Meara. Rick is also an ardent pastry chef, who loves to bake anything with chocolate. His new book, Rick Dees Top 40 Greatest Desserts has received rave reviews.
Dees graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a bachelor’s degree in Radio, TV and Motion Pictures, and is an inductee in the North Carolina Broadcast Hall Of Fame. Active in Young Life, an organization committed to helping youth in their formative years, Rick also is a proud participant in the Boy Scouts Of America, having earned the rank of Eagle Scout himself at age 15.
Rick Dees currently resides in Toluca Lake, a suburb of Los Angeles, with his wife Julie, who is an accomplished comedienne with numerous credits, including being the voice of several Smurfs, and voice of Casper The Friendly Ghost. Julie’s stand-up comedy has thrilled audiences around the world, and she plies these skills as a regular on Rick’s radio shows. They have one son, Kevin, who is a specialist in real estate and entertainment.
