    Stabbed in the redneck - KNON fixture Roy Ashley bids a fiery farewell

    For many of the faithful, Roy Ashley's down-home twang defined what little remained of the old KNON-FM spirit. His was the voice of the people who drove pickups, drank Pearl, and knew all the words to "Waltz Across Texas." On February 29, Ashley wish...

    Bastard of young - How the Hebrew school bully got the Perfect gig with a Replacement
