I was born in Dallas, Texas to parents who were WAY too over-protective. I don’t think I was allowed to leave our backyard until I got my Learner’s Permit. So, the first time I took my dad’s car out, I just kept driving and never returned home. I ended up working at Stereo Country 107, KTLR in Terrell, Texas. Actor Jamie Foxx is from Terrell although I’m pretty sure he never listened to me spin Conway Twitty records at 4 in the morning.
After not being able to support myself on 5 bucks an hour, I had to move back in with my parents and take on 2 other jobs just to stay in radio. My mom’s Christmas gift to me that year was a job application. She wanted me to work with her at the Liquid Paper factory.
In the midst of my unstable career choices, for some reason I felt the need to complicate things even more by getting married. A new wife…plus a mortgage, plus a dog, and a program director of a radio station telling me I should’ve taken the job at Liquid Paper = BAD TIMES FOR MY EGO. So, I started modeling Calvin Klein underwear….for the women in my mom’s sewing club. Don’t ask!! My first wife and I divorced and I’ve been very successful at blocking out that dark period of my life.
Anyway, I finally got up the nerve to drain the brake fluid out of my program director’s VW bug and since he never made it back to work, I was promoted to a full-time, on-air position at the Satellite Music Network in Dallas. I also ended up doing some work for ABC Radio International. I’ve recorded shows that have aired in New Zealand and China. Well, that’s what I was told. No one ever explained the giant box of tapes I found in the mailroom labeled “Mo’s Fake Radio Shows”.
I eventually moved to Roanoke, Virginia to stalk one of their local radio personalities, Sally Sevareid. Once the restraining order was lifted, the station decided to hire me as their “flame-throwin’ night jock”. I had HUGE success and the manager of K92-FM immediately moved me into morning drive to work with Sally. In that time slot, I was able to hypnotize and brainwash Sally during Salt n’ Pepa records and, quite frankly, she couldn’t resist the urge to take a ride in my Pontiac Firebird. So, we got married and moved to Richmond to work for B103. I thought the general manager of that station was even dumber than I was and he was in charge of running the place. So, we quit and moved to West Palm Beach. We’ve been working for KOOL 105.5 since 2003. They never renewed our contract after the first two years and I’m pretty sure they fired us. But, we’ll just keep showing up every day until they change the security code to get into the building.
