In a recent interview with Faythe we asked her about KKYX 104.9FM & 680AM (“Country Legends”), and specifically her partnership with Roy Holley on the radio show, Talk about Texas.
Now owned by Cox Radio, Country Legends has been around since 1926 and the station covers over 99,000 sq. miles and over 100 counties. It’s a major outlet for country music lovers all over Texas and was ranked one of the top ten stations in the nation during the 70’s and 80’s and is still very popular today. Roy Holley’s program “Talk About Texas” has been on the station for almost 7 years and has over ¼ million listeners.
Jerry King (who edits all of Faythe’s radio material) is a popular morning personality has been on the radio for over 40 years, has received many accolades and is an honorary member of the Country DJ Hall of Fame in Nashville.
The co-producer of Talk about Texas, we asked Faythe how she feels to be part of such a special project, “Imagine how you feel when you hear a good story and take that narrative journey marked by triumphs, failures, insight, and a little bit of serendipity. Or imagine sharing a cup of coffee with a friend and listening intently as they share their incredible life story. Now imagine that’s actually an enjoyable morning and you really want to do it again. When you join us on Saturday mornings, whether it’s a live interview at the studio, or out in Llano, that’s exactly what you’ll hear. We travel all over Texas collecting great stories where you’ll get to hear some surprising revelations of everyday people who get to take the microphone and talk about their lives. Each week the show shares these unscripted conversations revealing the wisdom, courage, and poetry in the words of people you might not notice walking down the street. Sometimes we’ll make you laugh, other times you may get sentimental, but we’ll always be perseveringly honest and empathetic.“

So, we asked Faythe, any last thoughts on this?
“I feel blessed being part of the show mainly because I get to meet some A-M-A-Z-I-N-G Texans that always make me smile, and working with folks like that can’t go anywhere but awesome!”
Well said, and can be sure we’ll be listening!
