Mr. Motormouth

March 5, 2014
   Someone asked me what I was doing in the eighties and I think this picture pretty much sums it up: surfing the news on KSLX. That's David K. Jones at left and Jeanne Sedello at right, putting up with my motormouth-extended-newscast.

The Jones, Boze & Jeanne Show on KSLX, June, 1989

   A note on the back says I am two minutes over on the news (we would go into the"news" at 56 minutes to the hour with instructions that it not go past the top of the hour) , a no no on a tightly programmed classic rock station in the 1980s (actually, I imagine it's probably tighter today). We had fun, but it's long gone now. I definitely don't miss the hours (up at four with a 45 minute drive into Scottsdale and on air from 6 to 9) but I do miss the gang and I do miss the money ($120K a year for a three-hour day).

"That's the news from smack-dab-in-the-middle of The West's Most Midwestern Town."
