It’s not often that a career in cross-country trucking leads to a career in radio — but that’s how it happened to Frank Welch. “It’s true,” he says. “I was listening to a lot of radio stations while driving around the country. My thought was, ‘I could do better than that!’ so I jumped into it.” Today, Frank’s definition of “drive time” has changed. The road to his current Classic Rock stint wound its way through a variety of radio stations including Dallas stations KCDU-FM, KLUB-FM and KVIL-FM. “I’ve done basically every on-air job you can do: jock, studio news reporter, street reporter, traffic reporter, sports reporter and more.” These experiences have brought Frank news honors, including the Dallas Press Club’s “KATY” Award and the Dallas U.P.I. Award. Frank believes he has an impact on his listeners because he genuinely enjoys his job. “I have a lot of fun on the air and I really believe that if you’re having fun at something, people respond positively to you.”

Dave-Bolt-WRUP-Real-Classic-RockDave Bolt

Dave began life as a surprise.
Apparently, an unexpected one – but then, aren’t ALL surprises unexpected?
His mother was undergoing a routine x-ray in an attempt to diagnose some stomach discomfort she’d been experiencing, when, lo and behold . . . there he was, probably making shadow puppets on the x-ray screen.

Yes, that’s right – blasted with radiation before even leaving the womb.
Explains a LOT, doesn’t it?
Dave’s childhood was happy and uneventful – except, of course, for the hundreds of times he was dropped on his head during driveway basketball games with his older neighborhood friends.
Really explains a LOT, doesn’t it?
Dave’s dream was always to pursue a career in radio broadcasting. He started in 1981 at a hits station in Silsbee, Texas (picture Green Acres meets The Twilight Zone). He moved on to radio stations in Beaumont, Houston, and Dallas, Texas. Today he enjoys playing great music and taking care of his listeners!
He and his lovely wife of 20 years, Rhonda, have two boys, Michael and Matthew. On his free time you can catch Dave driving his Ford Mustang GT, surfing the Internet, and catching up on his “honey do’s.” Dave would like to add that all his successes and blessings comes from his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
