KKAJ Midday Show Monday-Saturday
10am-2pm


Midday Cafe every weekday at 11am


Growing up in Southern Oklahoma, we had both kinds of music - country AND western!  KKAJ was a big part of what still influences me to this day.  Not only did it influence me musically growing up but it was also a big reason as to why I wanted to work in the radio industry.  I've been lucky enough to get to talk to some of my favorite artists and songwriters such as Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, the Randy Rogers Band and Eli Young band among others.  There's something about growing up in Oklahoma that makes you love country music and the meaning and soul behind the songs.

The youngest and newest dj on the team (and Win won't let him forget it), Jimmy joins us from our sister station, The Ranch, in Fort Worth. After getting a broadcasting degree from UTA, he worked his way up in country radio, starting out as a promotions assistant and eventually becoming an on-air personality.  He's a big fan of red dirt and classic country and has a huge passion for radio.  He spends his downtime watching horror movies, playing guitar (badly), and going to local concerts. He is currently in the throws of plotting Win Patton's downfall.
