About the Station

During the Golden Age of Radio, from the late 20s through the 60s, country music DJs would often use the phrase 'The Old Clock On The Wall' It was a great time. Those golden voices and Golden Age Of Radio are no more but that great music still remains...

About drifter don

My name is Don Newby. I was born in McKinney, Texas on June 3, 1938, and moved to Fort Worth, Texas when I was 11. I Attended Riverside Junior High and Fort Worth Technical High. My teenage years were absolutely wonderful. Full of adventure and curiosity. I would try anything once and did with no regrets. I would not change a thing. In January 57 I joined the Navy for three years on my first enlistment. I would reenlist again 1n Jan 65 hoping to visit other countries. All the numbers lined up and fate took me completely around the World aboard the Guided Missile Cruiser, USS Galveston. My Navy service was terminated in October 67 in Newport Rhode Island, After that I joined the Army National Guard. Total active and reserve time comes to 12 years. Absolutely no regrets. I was a Navy Journalist and attended the Navy Broadcasting school. I Attended Amarillo College where I studied Drama and Speech. I was called a drifter in radio because I drifted all over the place. Stations I have worked for over the years were located in Dallas. Sherman, Fort Worth, Houston, Dumas, Amarillo, Terrell, Mckinney and Lubbock to name a few. Over the years I have played every genre of music but the greatest fans by far will be found in the Country and Country Gospel genres. I'm now 76 and have a lot of time so I decided to play with Internet radio. Looky here Brother Bob, Don the drifter is playing radio, It's the old country and Country Gospel we loved and played over the years. Miss you my friend...
