Shotgun Tom's Pool Hall Birthday

By Joe Nelson

   Saturday evening, at his Easy County home, Shotgun Tom Kelly celebrated his birthday in grand fashion. Surrounded by his family and closest friends, the party was a huge success.

   Friends from all over arrived and shared stories, told jokes and no one played pool as it was just too packed. The night was capped off with everyone singing Happy Birthday and cake was served. Also, a second rendition of Happy Birthday was sung by Owen 'Wes' Western in his signature backwards fashion. That's always fun to hear.

   Here are some photos from the celebration. Following the pictures will be the video Chris Carmichael shot.

Thanks Chris Carmichael for this video...

As always thanks for tuning in!

AJ and Sara on KyXy Mornings

By Joe Nelson

San Diego, CA, August 1, 2017 -- – San Diego’s heritage Adult Contemporary radio station, KyXy 96.5 welcomes AJ Machado and Sara Perry as co-hosts of the new AJ Mornings morning show on KyXy 96.5 launching on Monday, August 7. The show will run weekdays from 6:00 to 10:00 AM.

“We’re super excited about this new morning show and have been looking forward to making this announcement,” says Chris Patyk, KyXy 96.5 Program Director. “AJ’s been waking up San Diego for 17 years and counting. The addition of Sara – who has logged nearly the same amount of time on the air – will make the new KyXy morning show an exciting and fresh way for our listeners to start their day.”

Machado commented, "KyXy has been playing great music for San Diego listeners for decades and I've been waking up San Diegans for years. It was only a matter of time before we ended up together! I'm looking forward to building something fresh, fun and relatable that the audience can wake up to for years to come!"

AJ Machado previously hosted The AJ Show for the past five years on ENERGY 103.7 – sister station to KyXy 96.5. In 2012, Machado was recognized as “San Diego's Celebrity Philanthropist of the Year" by the SD Philanthropy Society for his work to support Rady Children's Hospital via AJ's Kids Fund. For sixteen years, he has headed efforts to provide toys and other essential items to the hospital's young patients through the AJ’s Kids Crane event each November. KyXy 96.5 looks forward to continuing AJ’s community outreach efforts this holiday season.

Sara Perry adds, “For me this is the ultimate radio dream job trifecta: Mornings with AJ on KyXy! We can't wait to wake up with San Diego and hopefully make the drive to work or busy mornings dropping the kids off at school a little brighter!”

Perry was previously Midday personality on San Diego’s KFM-BFM where she began her radio career as an intern with the station 17 years ago.
