Chris Malone

Recently, Chris Malone changed his schedule from 3pm- 7pm  to 5am-10 am and now can be heard with Storm Roberts and Janie Pope weekday mornings.  Some still say he's still quite possibly the best voice you will hear all day!


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.
