Wes

I joined the FMX staff not long after the station was formed in 1981. Worked my way up to mornings (The Breakfast Flakes) & bossman. Did radio Austin for a couple years, and about a year and a half in lovely Spokane Washington. Got a call to come back to Lubbock as bossman and did not leave. Did mornings as "Jacqui & Wes", rocked some middays and eventually put the RockShow together with the Heathen. I am also midday host on another one for the most respected radio stations in America, the legendary Rock 108 in Abilene and enjoy my many visits to the city. I love blogging and am one of the most widely read bloggers in the company with over a million page views last year. I work on several websites and a bunch of social media. I am not afraid of stating ANY opinion; I feel it's important to be real. I am co-owner of Nightmare on 19th Street and the soon to be launched "Freaky Tiki Tavern" in Lubbock. I believe strongly in blood donation and in helping animals. My musical tastes are all over the map.

The Most WTF Traffic Lights In Lubbock Ever [VIDEO]

I believe this was Saturday night as we were returning from some fine tacos. Myself and a couple of friends were making our way down 50th. We saw one light blinking red, which is pretty much the standard default when there is a problem with traffic lights. Then we ran into this intersection and the lights were doing something I've never seen before.

The Top 7 Changes in Lubbock Due to Rain

The recent flooding rains in Texas have been good. You can show me all the pictures you want of stuff wiped out or underwater; it still means more moisture gets down to the water table and we'll have a few more months of drinking water down the line.

Lubbock was no exception from these rains, our normally near arid or arid weather is "so last summer." Instead, look for muggy days and muggy nights for a bit.

You Can’t Compare Waco’s Biker Shootout With Baltimore Riots

This one is really bothering me. You need to know up front that a nice chunk of my upbringing was black culture. Black comedy, black food, and black friends. I don't think at the time I ever thought "that guy isn't the same color". It was just a different guy. Heck the first hillbilly I ran into made a greater impression than the first black guy.  Always, I don't guess that matters, I just want to say up front that I coming from a mental place of acceptance. Acceptance doesn't even seem to be the right word, because I just didn't realize being a different color meant anything until much later in life. With that in mind, I don't think you can compare these two incidents on any level.
