Last nights show was awesome, nothing broke down, a few tech blurbs but all in all great show.
There is those hours when I’m not streaming, just running over the air. I try not to do that much as when I kick in the mini transmitter, most of my neighbors complaign that their TV’s and such go to the manure pile. In essence I bleed over everything, and considering there’s 100 watts coming out of the trees off the little stick up there that is what it is.
Relief is insight however. The facility in Woods Cross is going to take us to new heights like few have done before, but I truly believe in what we are doing.
The Knytes started this radio station back in 1975 as we were then known as the RoadMasters Truckers Association. Most over the air overnight coast to coast trucker shows or networks were based in Nashville or Texas. By the time news got to them of a wreck or something out here, it was already over. So there needed to be a voice for over the road long haul truckers out west.
Back then late night radio was all you could get to entertain yourself. Sure we had one TV station KMVT in Twin Falls, but at midnight they pulled the plug.
So one night I was tuned into this new show based out of Alberquacky New Mexico, called JOC(jock) Radio. But the show was produced in Bountiful Utah. When the network needed cash and was for sale, The RoadMasters bought it. The first show we aired on our tiny station KDSL(Kay-Diesel)FM was called Long Haul Radio. Then of course 1978 I got LexiBelle> but found little in the way of 10-14(information) for us in towing on radio or TV. So we launched a show during the day called Highway Hooker Radio, Hooker being cb talk for tow truck. My company was known as Heavy Hooker Towing so it fit.
In late 1980 the spirits moved us to build a hot rod NASCAR lookalike, that we called the General Jackson, named after the Confederate General. We had no idea of the Dukes yet.
However the spirits moved again, in the search for some white vinyl, go-go drill team style boots, I saw a sign on a 70 Dodge Charger, nearly the same body style as a 69. Well most of you know the rest.
The 1981 SLC Autorama came to Utah in the Salt Palace, this was when it was a real hot rod show, not a 4 day commercial vendors show. Our General Lee and Jackson, took 1st and 2nd in the combo, street custom class. Once we got home the idea went that doing and going full bore for all things Dukes was the ticket. So the REAL , Hazzard County Garage opened in Hagerman(Hazzard) Idaho, in March 1982. My partner at the shop and I decided to create a kountry redneck hot rod, custom club, with Hazzard flavor. In the fall of 1982 The Hazzard Knytes(the name of our up coming film) was born. The club went from 20 members 10 in Idaho, 10 in Utah, to just over 30,000 members coast to coast in a years time.
In March 1983 my mom died , but with the support of the cast of the Dukes and all things Hazzard being a reason to wake up each day, I put everything I could into both the shop and of course the club.
Today The Hazzard Knytes, now known as the Knytes-of-Anarchy, has 100,000 members coast to coast the latter 50,000 being members of what is the AyreWolvez.
The radio station and network took several turns, the first was creating Dixie Diesel Trucker Radio in 1990 that was Long Haul Radio. And of course what we are today as HazzardAyre Radio. With an annual income to the clubs cash stash at $20,million, we do well, although that $20,million is distributed to all 50 charters of the club.
The creation of the AyreWolvez, and models for TV ads, and all next time.
