Steve Wiley

I grew up in a place where it snows a lot. I loved it when I was a kid. Things changed when I got a job. I've spent nearly my entire adult life in Acadiana and it's the place I'm pleased to call home. I raised my children here, and my grandson Nathan is growing up here. When I was a kid, my brothers & I would "camp out' on the porch on summer nights, listening to a portable AM radio. We got great reception of stations in New York, Boston & even WLS out of Chicago. My favorite was "Cousin" Bruce Morrow. My brothers loved listening to it and I said "I want to do that"...

If You Smoke, Your Cigarettes May Soon Cost More.

I just inquired of a couple co workers what they typically pay for a pack of cigarettes. They replied $4.50 - $5.50 per pack. Assuming they smoke a pack a day, that works out to $140-$150 per month. If you smoke, you may soon be digging deeper. A house committee has passed a measure that would raise Louisiana's tax on cigarettes...

Have You Ever Wondered What ‘KTDY’ Means? [Video]

When you search for your favorite radio station (hopefully 99.9 KTDY), you don't search it by its "call letters." You look for it by its frequency, or "dial position."
