Meet our personalities: Pam Garrison

Pam Garrison anchors mornings on "Your Country 99.7, WCYK" along with Tom Morgan. She is one of seven children, number six, 3 girls and 4 boys. Pam grew up in Madison County, yes she's a Mountaineer. She graduated Madison County High School, and cites good country living.

Pam has two beautiful children, a daughter Brooke and a son Taylor, and so many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles that she says she has a family orchard, not a family tree. She's a newly wed to husband Randy, is a Fed Ex Driver.

She's lived in Albemarle County for 20 years, where she and Randy are very involved in their church. They love going to concerts and NASCAR Races and love being involved in our community; Pam's a member of the Charlottesville Dogwood Festival Committee.

When I've been out around the town with Pam, I am constantly amazed at the sheer number of fans who come up to say "hello." I think she knows everyone within a hundred miles of Charlottesville. We're thrilled to have her at Monticello Media.

Check out Pam at: (You can also access her blog and email from there).

Meet our personalities: Joe Thomas

Joe anchors 5am until 9am on WCHV, our news/talk station at 1260 AM and 94.1 FM. Joe is a 21-year radio vet who managed restaurants for six years before radio. As he puts it, he is "Father of three, husband of one (female) and proud survivor of the New York City Public school system."

His interests include auto racing, science fiction, basketball, and conservatism (though probably not in that order). Favorite movies are "Blade Runner" and "Running Man."

Favorite music: Ted Nugent, Joe Walsh, and Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Favorite books: "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" and "The Road to Mars."

If you enjoy news/talk from a local perspective, check out Joe Thomas on WCHV. You can join his Facebook fan club:

Jefferson Area Tea Party

The Jefferson Area TeaParty is tomorrow (April 15) from 3pm until 6pm at the Charlottesville Downtown Mall. I have a hunch that our very own WCHV (1260 AM and 94.1 FM) morning show host Joe Thomas might be involved.

Dinner at C & O

Loree and I had dinner downtown last night at C & O Restaurant.

Fabulous! I recommend the pork loin. The service was top drawer too.

Shop local. Shop Charlottesville.

New website to encourage shopping locally:

It is not our idea (nor our website). But I like the concept. Check it out.

Charlottesville donates over $67,000 to St. Jude

A quick thanks to our community for donating over $67,000 to benefit St. Jude. Our Radiothon on WCYK brought in $5,000 more than last year in a very tough economy. Thankyou for your caring.

And a special thanks to our staff at Your Country 99.7; job well done!
