“His mom was from Cow Island, his dad from Bosco… the kid really never stood a chance”…My name is John “JayCee” Falcon, and I have been Townsquare Media since 1998. I was born in Florida (my dad was in the Air Force), but I grew up in Abbeville ("home”). I served our great country in the United States Army, and still strongly support our troops. When I am not on the air, I am hardly still, as I have a love for travel, hanging out with friends, and "trying to fix things". I currently live in Youngsville and have 4 beautiful women in my life: my girlfriend Shannon, and our dogs Violet, Mannie, and Lil' Bit. My love for music trumps most, though, and I can usually be found with a radio near my ear.
