  1. Keevin Prince aka Bama

    Didn’t see Rodney Ripoff’s name

  2. Got started in radio while in High School at WFLI! I was only a parttimer, but the days at WFLI working for Jim Pirkle and Max OBrien, and learning how to be a jock with Machine Gun Green was absolutely fun and amazing. Started my long time radio career so I am glad to have had a part, however small, in the history. Ended up in Denver, worked on the air many years, now in engineering for K-LOVE radio. Thanks David Carroll and Machine Gun for keeping in touch all these years! SO GLAD to hear that the BIG JET FLI is back on air playing the hits!
