Dennis Oliver

I began my radio career in July of 1976 at WBBA radio in my hometown of Pittsfield, Illinois, while also working on the farm the radio station owner had. Then I moved to Canton, Missouri in the fall of 1980 and helped start KQCA radio, where we spun records for four years. My next stop was in Quincy, Ill. and I helped start up WQCY-FM, in 1984 as Program Director. In 1992 I moved to Bick Broadcasting and started Top 40 Hits KRRY-FM (Y101) and have been here ever since!

What Was Your First Paying Job?

What was your first real job? When I got my first paycheck. I was working on a farm in Pittsfield, Illinois and we were bucking hay in a very hot barn. The temperature had to be 115 degrees. But we worked all day getting the hay in, and at the end of that blistering day, we all looked at each other and said "let's do it again tomorrow!" And we did, at another location with even more hay to get in the barn.

Check Out This Green ‘Rod and the Satalites’ Record We Found in the Radio Station [Video]

Radio stations are places that end up collecting a lot of stuff. Some of the stuff is really neat. Some of it is not. Here's something we found that is a piece of local music history. Rod and the Satalites was a band that was popular in our area in the 1960s, and we have a very nice copy of one of their records. Something unusual about the record is that it is green, and inside the sleeve was something else we found interesting, a "live on KHMO radio" stage pass from a show at the American Legion in Hannibal.
