Lindzey got into the radio business at 18, right out of high school as her attempt to dodge college, no really it was because she loves music, however, she can’t sing a note and never learned to play an instruments, but she has always loved to learn about bands and different genres of music. Lindzey says radio gave her the opportunity to be around music even if it was just talking about it. Lindzey is a concert junky, she loves live music and the atmosphere of being in a stadium or venue listening to her favorite songs played right in front of her, it has always been an escape for her. She loves Alternative Rock and her favorite song is Creep by Stone Temple Pilots.
A message from Lindz, “I have two amazing boys. My oldest shy and really into sports. My youngest is outgoing and into anything that is wild and wacky. I’m married to a wonderful husband who I’ve been with almost as long as I’ve been working here at MyTown Media which means we had a lot of dates in a studio playing cards while I was board op’ing high school football / basketball games when we first met. We also have a cat named “Silver” who is the queen of our house and knows it.”
When asked about her favorite sports team, “Depends, if my husband and boys are asking me, because then it’s the Kansas City Chiefs. If they’re not around then it’s the Dallas Cowboys.”
Lindzey’s Favorite Quote: “I’m not a woman. I’m a force of nature.” – Courtney Love
Gene AKA The Bounty Hunter has been with My Town Media for 11 years after receiving a phone call one afternoon asking if he wanted to a DJ on the radio station, he said “Sure”, the rest is history! Gene is the Program Director, does production and is an on-air show host weekday afternoons from 2pm to 7pm on 97.7 The Dawg. The thing he enjoys most about his job is the pay, the people he works with and his favorite part is production.
Gene’s family has lived near Burlington since 1856, so that definitely makes him a “local” to the area. He has a background in law enforcement and bail bonds(hence the name “The Bounty Hunter”). He served four years in the U. S. Navy as an electronics technician on jet aircraft. Gene is happily married, his kids have grown, left the house and have been replaced by two Yorkies. Now his thing is radio. He has also played bass in several bands for many years but is now taking a break. In his free time Gene enjoys hard rock music and has his own DJ business and likes to travel. He’s not a big sports fan but occasionally he will watch the Kansas City Chiefs.
Gene’s favorite quote: “If it works…don’t fix it!” and “KISS = Keep It Simple Stupid”
