Chris Malone

Quite possibly the best voice you will hear all day, that’s because when you hear Chris Malone weekdays from 3pm to 7pm, your workday should be about done.  Chris keeps your favorite music going strong as you head down the home stretch.  Keep 98.5 KTK with you in the car, as hitting the rush hour adds stress; Chris keeps you cool with an hour of commercial-free music starting just before 5pm!


It's So Hot....

Over the years I've been able to detect subtle differences in regional accents.  For instance, a Tennessee accent is different than an Alabama accent or Pennsylvania dialect.  In the spirit of summer and its oppressive heat, here are some regional slang sayings describing how hot it is outside, courtesy of Joan H. Hall, editor of the Dictionary of American Regional English.
