We was then we ain’t

rcj 1

We was flowing then we ain’t, our webmaster left us high and dry without reconfiguring our streaming channel. Not cool, something to do with conflicting interests or some such, my thoughts are he got too many calls from outside sources or something. Funny I always thought it was OUR channel, not his. Oh well. His loss. Trouble is now I have to find a webmaster and someone who can do the coding. So we’ll be offline streaming wise for a few weeks.

My room mate is dragging his heels, no money no room, I hate doing that , but the two situations run together, Never ever trust anything from CraigsList. I found our webmaster that way, and he decided to drop out, now my room mate , so I’m done with doing anything on CraigsList.

Just so ya’ll know this shut down was not my fault, it was our webmaster. And until I can find someone equally qualified, HazzardAyre Radio online is shut off.

I’ll let you know when its up.

This is a serious case of mis communication


Okay I awoke from a days rest that I really needed, since there is no meds here and trying to deal with some very real simpletons when I see our webmaster in San Francisco, a bit put out. So I’m going to try one more time to get this thing across.

First the club , is very real, I’m sorry there’s no group pic, but to get a full group pic now would take a lot of Department of Defense wrangling , because 80% of the club is deployed. Second the club is only about 10% MC, and 90% split between three interest's, Dukes-of-Hazzard/Southern Culture and history, Over the road trucks and the old skool trucking lifestyle as well as us in towing. And finally and it is the thing that pushes much of the club, we are a VINTAGE WARBIRD including HELICOPTER group. The MC thing is simply inferred. What took place in 2008 in a tiny house in Glenn’s Ferry, was one of those things we were grabbling for survival as far as the club, SOA was on TV, we decided with permission from Kurt Sutter to use the images if modified, and the last of it as Anarchy. Provided we’d give credit. While many of our members do ride bikes, and we as a group have always been welcome into the biker community, we are A TRUCK group, we believe in two full tanks of diesel, open road, a full paying load, good home down food, no cops, its 18 wheels and 80,000 pounds of steel. Beyond that the Knytes stay in the mix of the name since the club, is what we started at the Snake River Grill then called the Polish Palace when myself, Jimmy MacDonald, Lester Culbertson Junior, Steve Lawarson, Ron Adams, amongst 15 others sat down, and thought that now that we have a country hot rod shop, and since the General Lee , our General Lee was always at the shop, the Hazzard County Knytes was organized, officially in 1982. Our outlaw radio station went fully on air in April of 1983, and any body who doubts my General lee only need to call the Gooding County Sheriffs Office and speak with the Sheriff. More over if they want confirmation on the club, that too is a direction since the Sheriff is a Knyte.

So then our webmaster gets jittery, does not want to be bothered etc, so the thing goes, now what do we do? I’m not a techy, I turn a wrench and run a tow truck when I’m not behind the mic doing HazzardAyre Radio.

But if our webmaster has a problem, a phone call is much better than an email.

Now then his big gripe is with us doing the Anarchy thing. I thought we had, but I have also been saying that for as many years as that is or has been, there’s a bunch of pics, graphics with that on it, it’s going to take time to weed through and or modify this>BIKE STAMPinto this>BIKE STAMPtakes time, I only have so many hours in a day and as I said in three previous entries, HazzardAyre is great and all, my main focus is putting the pieces back together of Hazzard County Choppers, Cooter’s A1 Toewing, and AyreWolf Aviation from the move from Idaho here to Utah. That in many ways I’m beginning to regret. The fact that I thought our webmaster was cool with us, in building not only our radio project, which I discharged someone else so he could build the site, I moved to get a better pipeline here in Utah for a better stream. But then this today. I’ll say I’m very upset.

Now then Monday I go to Talent Management Group, pretty much as a last ditch effort to create images to put in the video side of the website. Thinking all is great, I come home, talk online with our photographer, but then we get a billion questions, such as what will the images be used for, I thought that was clear, how long would they be online, that is pretty clear, as long as we have the site, am I not making this very clear, or do I have to yell?

The fact that three of my personal rides are suffering from the move, lack of upkeep, one that sits in Idaho still and fortunately its at a club member and friends place is one thing, but I spent money that could have bailed her out of bondage(LexiBelle>LEXI AND TWO BABES) instead of a trip to SLC , for an audition that had in amongst 20 some odd candidates 4 that I could really use, this is getting to me. Now I sat in a old cabin on Fish creek Summit, with our founding 10 members 5 of which are our high council, I bled into a dish with a single candle and swore my loyalty and dedication to duty, strength,honor, and sacrifice to The Hazzard County Knytes. That was in 1982. I have spent countless amounts of funds doing that duty to and for the club. And while I’m not twerked at the club, all these outsiders are getting to me. I remember our one of 3 female voting members in Gooding sat with me on a cement step we talked, even she thought that doing KOA rather than HCK, was a big error, she has remained with us. I do not know how this could be put forth any clearer. I’m fully apprized of the situation of the Anarchy thing, and I am doing the best I can to scrub that and redoux much of it with HCK-{Hazzard County Knytes} but it takes time.

So if our stream goes foul, for a time the rest of you need to know we are looking for a new webmaster to take things over, and get this more in control of the club, not some outside entity.

If brains were dynamite Utahrds could not blow their nose,

rcj 1

Is the whole damn place idiotic?

I used to bitch about Twin Falls, Idaho being a 100 years in reverse at Warp speed, yet I will say Utah in many areas are going back 500 years at transwarp speed.

Here’s two examples, I get money to pay on the cable bill. I get to the office to pay the cable bill, the stupid fat Mexican bitch there could not even count money. She was crabbing about not enough money there, I hand counted each bill, plus the $50.00 that I gave her and I said $280.00 plus $50.00 is $330.00 . Did she not graduate from High School? Did she not carry even a 3.9 GPA as I did throughout school? If not how the hell did she get a job at Comcast? Did Comcast have pitty on her? Then just a bit ago, I go up to pick up my prescriptions. My Lithium, My stomach meds and my diabetic meds, that THEY called me and THEY said was ready at Smiths . I get there and only one that was unimportant was ready. Why call me if the damn things were not ready? Shit your better off if you can scam your way to do it, get an Idaho address, get Idaho’s Medicaid, Cash assistance and Snap Card. Then get your food here, but go to the Doctor in say Twin Falls or at least Burley. Sure it’s a long drive but the stress reduction of not having to go through plain bullshit, is worth the drive.

Needless to say I’m taking a trip to this Weber Human Services outfit and reaming someone a new asshole.

Then there was our audition the other day, how do you schedule up possible talent applicants to do a job of this magnitude , and the talent except for 3 are completely oblivious as to the core subject? It’s like someone taking a aviation check flight without them going to flight school. Or one of us in towing hooking up a rig without ever driving the truck. Is it that hard to research the club, the subject matter and why we are us online?

Stupid is one thing but complete idiocy is running at 80%. If our populations are to compete with those in other states and nations we need to do better in schools, not just High Schools, where its been determined that those from Asian nations are way more intelligent than standard American’s. Of course few can out do the Southern states, but can we as Confederate Marines bring some of our southern backwoods , shine making intelligence to the Northern Yankees that could not blow their noses if brains were dynamite.

Today was one of those days that if someone, ANYONE would have came to me and gave me the funds and give me my place back in Twin Falls Idaho or even Pocatello, I would have moved HazzardAyre and me back to Idaho at the drop of a hat.

It’s taken a freelance photographer, and his sweet wife to give us the advancements in our visual presentation assets , but I do say, I’m getting somewhat damp feet.

In the morning a med clinic up here is about to get their lunch handed to them, and with me off of my Lithium, that reaming will be deep.

But are these fruits ready for pickin?


it’s a new day and I look at the simplest of true miracles, and how calming the sheer tranquility that the rain drops on the window sill bring. The Miracle of birth in a barn as a calf tries to stand on its legs. This is living, and something I truly miss. I gave up a lot moving to Utah. The one thing I will not give up as I did ye old General, I left that old boy in storage for nearly 2 years before I went to claim it, by that time the who ever done sold him. I could have sued, since the tow guy sold it without clear title. And the new owner couldn’t register him, thus might be why he sent a perfectly good hot rod Charger to the scrap yard. That will not REPEAT NOT happen to LexiBelle. Such sacrifices are what I did to move here to Ogden to further the radio gig, to further the clubs and our southern movements agenda, but there will not be the sacrifice of LexiBelle>LEXI AND TWO BABESI’ll be gall darned if that happens. So I’m busting hump Internet or no Internet to pay for her boarding but our webmaster says why don’t ya’ll send money to build the site, I’m broke , well not broke but close to it. I’m depending on this website and its corresponding radio gig HazzardAyre to build advertisers, and that means ratings and the begets listeners, and that begets, getting people to the site to tune in and that begets shelling money out for such things as domestic TV ads, enthusiasts publications. That requires something people can see and want to see. That requires female flesh by rides. The majority I can harvest, but the female flesh is a constant uphill battle. That’s why I’m open to just about, any source, for that, but what all needs to remember the club through me, are the creators. We say what is and what ain’t. Just like one Monday at the audition, when I said do you have problems with wearing nylons, her response, she will not wear them. My thought, sorry honey your gone. Like I said last time, this is not alacarte , you get what we want you to do or you don’t get the part.

Knowledge of our core is primary as well. Out of maybe 3 the rest did not know who Waylon Jennings was, had never seen Airwolf, had little knowledge of anything Dukes-of-Hazzard, and finally had never watched Sons of Anarchy. How can you go to work, much less enhance a club, and its website, if you don’t even know enough of what the club is about to enhance it to where its believable? Years ago this king of ignorance could be tolerated. As there was little in the way of the Internet. But if your going into an audition with our attributes, you should at least do your homework and dig up online some of what we’re all about. Some said they couldn’t find anything online of us, really? All one needs to do is Google HazzardAyre and you have two pages, The Knytes-of-Anarchy 3 pages, and the Hazzard County Knytes 5 pages. Then there was the worry about money. For goodness sake do the gig for the purity of the craft not the money. If your worried about a paycheck you will not do as well as if you put away the thoughts of finances. Any way, about to put this episode of HazzardAyre in the hangar, we will see ya’ll on the radio Wednesday night.

On the road and on the air

hazzardayre pic 2

Okay b4 I get into my usual rant, need to get some domestic chores out of the way.

many of you our members have called wondering about yesterday.

The casting for what it was , was okay, but few that showed up were even considering. For some odd unknown reason the minute we said anything about being a qusay MC, the attitude was whatever, the minute the MC was brought into it, it was, we all want to be involved. Here’s the problem, few if any of those sweet hiney’s would ever make it past hello without blowing a gasket. They just are not wyld enough. It was church city even though I kept revolving around that issue. All but three came in wearing nylons, the few that did, I wanted to try the lips to toes audition, but felt all to uncomfortable there. Which is why an independent audition on club turf is needed here.

Okay Talon and his other half were there. Talon’s better half was dead or nearly so to the earth. So we ate and they took off.

Yesterday was a real Monday.

I say the American work week either should be shortened or start on Tuesday. That way America can get over the weekend Hangover before doing duty to serve the nation. The big thing? TMG never did call me today.

Okay then that means the search for visual talent continues.

Then there’s the website, seems as the nuts and bolts man of it is a bit lethargic about the club yapping on it, but is that not what the damn site and all is for?

The ride here was rough enough, the movement forward should be easier, but there are too many idiotic Yankee’s that just don’t just grasp it.

Okay then and I’ll comment as soon as I get rid of Skoal in jaw, on air. This great club and the brotherhood of all of you is not only real, albeit there’s not much if any group photos. I had one but it got lost in many moves from three radio studios. One I’m working to recover.

From 1981 when the concept of a combined DOH fan club and grassroots custom club was assembled, to the furtherance there of to the formal organizing in 1983, the Hazzard County Knytes has commanded just about every place we have charters or are looking to form them. The Radio gig I do was started long before in 1978 just after I got LexiBelle. The idea was to form the only nationwide over the road trucker and towing operators radio show/network. What started as Highway Hooker Radio, Hooker being cb slang for tow truck, that came together in 1994 as Dixie Diesel Trucker Radio that evolved into AyreWolf radio in 2002 that blended together makes HazzardAyre Radio. We are not the new kid on the block, just a bit more knowledgeable and not so gullible. This is not Burger King, with us its you get it our way or you don’t get the damn thing at all. This radio bit is done by , and for the Hazzard County Knytes and our families, the reach out to every person making their living behind the wheel of 18Wheels plus and most importantly tow truck, is secondary. If we can educate a few stupid northern Yankee’s so be it, if not, their loss.

Any mile I’m on now LIVE and I’ll get into where to eat and all in a few minutes.

Radio Diary


B4 I get into my usual rant here need to relate this to you.

While I like in part the design that our web engineer came up with for a logo, many of you told me it was not a welcoming greeting. Stemming to our older SOA days which slowly we are distancing away from, and easing back into more of our Hazzard County roots. This>HazzardAyre PICscares people, while this>hazzardayre pic 2explains more of who we are and what the radio show and its network is all about.

Okay then, I awoke with a call from some bill collector in Salt Lake City trying to reach another person who once held our phone number. The old legacy phone number assignments no longer apply. I can remember all of the ones we ever had as a family, in both Utah and Hazzard Idaho. It used to be Utah like Idaho had one area code. While Idaho has still only one, Utah has three now. #801, 435, and now 385. Those are of the variety attained due to cell phones. With the proliferation of thousands of cell phones a new area code had to be created. No big deal, but it does become a problem for business and Comcast amongst others don’t seem to understand that, as once a customer gets YOUR phone, a change in a number or area code means a lost customer, that YOU have to now renegotiate with to win back, and that means big money.

I tried like heck to get Comcast to kick up at least the last 4 digits of the same number we had in Idaho 9653, which relate to the word WOLF, as in AyreWolf. But for some odd reason, maybe its from less population or something but it was funny, that I could get nearly the same number with Syringa as I had with CenturyLink, 9653. Yet Comcast said they could not accommodate that. Okay fine. But this also relates to terrestrial radio.

One of the big problems with terrestrial or over the air radio, is that once you gain a listener who most likely will buy a product and or service that one of your advertisers offers, if you move your spot on the dial, or change call letters or both you just lost that listener.

With online radio such as ours we have not forgotten the point on the OTA radio spot on the dial of conventional radio. Our places in Idaho have remained right where they are at for 31 years. You know if your truckin or flying through southwestern Idaho, you go to our station in Buhl(105.7 FM) or West-Point Idaho(1090 AM) or Strevelle Idaho at (105.3 FM) that you tune us in. And of course 93.5 FM being where our signal blankets metro Utah from Woodruff Utah. HazzardAyre is there along with the rest of our programming , Dixie Diesel Radio, Highway Hooker Radio, and the original, AyreWolf Radio. All of which we’re rebuilding into HazzardAyre Radio and the HazzardAyre Radio Network.

Legacy radio must then be anchored, and remain steadfast. Once your listener can’t find you, or you change formats, call letters you just lost that listener.

Now before I go. There’s been some confusion on my fusion of on air handles so I’ll try to explain.

When I collided nearly with all things Hazzard County, the natural course was for me to become the living embodiment to the on TV character Cooter, that Ben Jones portrayed, on the Dukes of Hazzard. It wasn’t that I felt insuperior to Bo Or Luke Duke, but I didn’t have the flowing locks of blonde as of Bo, and I wasn’t fit enough to be Luke, but I did, and do drive a tow truck, fixed cars and built hot rods in a tiny Kountry town and so the natural progression was I be Cooter, so it is, so it is. However from my days in the Marines and from a quick statement from one of my supervisor at Deseret Transportation here in Utah, that I was in fact the Wolf in amongst the sheep(Mormons) that instead of taking that in a bad way or insult, I capitalized on it. So I restarted my OTR(over the road Trucker) radio career as the Rode Wolf. However that would change in 2001. Once I regained my love of flight and putting together a radio show for those in love with vintage warbirds and all, and with me being one of the lost sheep of the VMA214 BlackSheep, one of my production crew assistants said why not just be the AirWolf. Not bad, but Bellisario, and Universal would have no part of that, so seeing the name Ayre on the side of a 55 Chevy, as in Belayre 2 door hardtop, I reworked it all and Bazzinga AyreWolf.

Which I have became and is now for most of the west has became a household or at least a incockpit name. But with that understand, I am still the AyreWolf, and will be, but when the need is there, at times, Crazy Cooter as in me and HazzardAyre will be also, both are me.

That’s the Wolf, on today’s Radio Diary.

The Race Day after


In the world of a custom club or organization loyalty means everything, especially to those who support you or once did.

Back years ago, Warren’s Drive In, in Roy Utah was a strong backer of the Street Commanders Club, that evolved into the RoadMasters that is now the parent group of the Hazzard County Knytes .

As such I try very hard to patronize those firms.

For some odd reason, when the guy who started Warren’s bit the dust so did Warren’s Drive In, The change was not that sudden, but over the years I have seen the decline. Taste went down prices went up, to where I began to avoid the establishment, But you get to thinking ah, lets try it to see if the problems have been corrected. Unfortunately this is not the case at Warren’s. Now I can see once, maybe twice screwing the pooch. Bad ingredients from suppliers, a bad day for the cook, any number of things, but to keep messing up consistently naw this is just a case of poor quality supervision, and the fact the owners and managers not wanting to give the boot to the employees not making the grade. Now to make this fair, I’ll say this. Back when my Dad, Ed Thomas and Jay Call brought forth what you came to know as Flying J, quality and friendly service was foremost in everything they did.

I only went once to a Flying J Motel that was sub par, the maid , made the bed, without checking for insects in the bed, what I found was a covey of grasshoppers in the bed. Which after I fixed that problem, everything was great. The restaurants were always clean, well stocked and even to the point of the conversion to Denny’s , the food was always good, never did have a bad meal there. After Jay Call died however quality control slipped, poor investments by corporate and some minor management problems, but Flying J slipped to the point of near bankruptcy. In came Pilot, and bought the majority of Flying J, except for paying the Montgomery Foundation OUR money, still Flying j remains a leader.

On Warren’s, if your going somewhere to end up spending $10.00 on a burger and fries, it had better be as excellent as possible, Warren’s fails to deliver. So the Knytes just are not going to go there any more. Especially after myself and two others of us, were bent over our thrones until near 04:00(4:00AM) . With 3 of us visiting MacKay Dee’s er, over this and getting our guts pumped and gave meds to settle our insides down, I suspect that the health department is going to be looking at Warren’s really close.

So if I’m not on air LIVE today, you know why.

Now if the prices at warren’s was more in line with say McDonalds , I might not be so bitchy about this, but if I’m shelling out money to the tune of a $10.00 burger fries and soda, that food better be cooked, the pickles and condiments better be fresh, the fries COOKED. I will give the young gal tending to us, she was cool, but she’s only the server.

See ya’ll after the race and around 11:00PM
