OUR 095: 97.1 ZHT Wayne Thompson Jr. & ABC 4 News Anchor, Randall Carlisle (Part 2)

8.26.14 002

Episode 95 of Ol’ Ute Radio is packed with good stuff. Rebecca and Sascha begin by making a tongue-in-cheek disclaimer for the music they will play during the show. Since the first guest is 97.1 ZHT DJ, Wayne Thompson Jr., the first half of the show is full of listening and discussing Top 40 hits. Thompson explains a little bit about the way Top 40 stations work and tells us his favorite parts of the job.
Catch him on Instagram & Twitter: @waynethompsonjr
Following Thompson’s interview, ABC4 Utah’s own Randall Carlisle is welcomed back into the OUR studio. The discussion is somewhat of a “part two” in follow-up of the first appearance which was full of incredible stories from his life in journalism and media. He tells the crazy tale of how he was the first person worldwide to break news of Jim Morrison’s death and being at Kent State during the shootings.
