The Morning-X with Jax

I'm a rare breed of sports fanatic/music nerd/movie buff/pop culture enthusiest. With passions for all of that, what better way to display my useless knowledge than through radio. That was my conclusion after at one point thinking to myself, that I could do Carson Daly's job better than him.

I'm still working on it.
However, this all didn't come about until I already had 4 business degrees (seriously, that happened). But that's when my passion for alt rock/indie rock/and classic rock took over. Since then, radio has taken me from my hometown area of St. Louis, MO, to northern Illinois, to Arkansas, and now Ardmore, Oklahoma.
I, for one, couldn't be happier with the result.

Random facts about me: I'm either watching Netflix i.e; (House Of Cards, Arrested Development), HBO i.e; (Game Of Thrones, True Detective), analyzing episodes of Mad Men, or watching any and every movie that intrigues me. This, of course, is when my time is not occupied with sports. I'm a St. Louis guy so yes, I love the St. Louis Rams, Cardinals, and Blues. And my fandom for these teams takes things to a whole new level. Other than that, I run a lot and take care of my one-eyed cat, Slade Wilson (if you get that reference, then I think you're awesome). 


Monday-Friday 10am-2pm

Joe D.: X Middays

I got my start in radio 13 years ago as a intern. I was hired on as a part-time promo tech working with our 4-station cluster. From there, I was offered a full-time position as the promotions assistant for our cluster.

I spent a couple of years doing that while learning programming and doing weekends, overnights and eventually nights.

From there, I got more and more involved in programming and was eventually offered the APD. I spent two years in that position until my PD left. I then took over.

In my spare time, I'm a musician. I've been playing bass for about 25 years now and even spent a couple years touring with Joey Belladonna of Anthrax, playing bass in his solo band, Belladonna. That was one of the most amazing experiences! I got to see a lot of the country and meet some great people too!

My touring days are done, but I still like to play on weekends with my cover band, Dome.


Monday-Friday 2pm-7pm

 Pablo:  The Afternoon-X

My entertainment career started in the Minneapolis clubs, armed with turntables, my wicked imagination and something to say.

I landed my dream job at the 'evil rock station' in town and have been rockin' at 93X in Minneapolis for 18 years!

Afternoons On-Air, Music Director & Assistant Program Director are among the many hats I wear.

At night and on weekends, you will often find me entertaining the masses hositng many rock events, festivals, bar gigs and concerts.

I'm happy to come aboard on The-X and keep the music rolling throughout the afternoon, and into the evening.


Monday-Friday 7pm-12am

Woody:  The-X at night

I started my career in radio as a part-time jock on 93X in Minneapolis in 2011 and have worked my way to becoming the Evening host and Production Director for that cluster of three stations.

In that time, I've been a host on WGVX in two formats and now producing imaging for the station's latest incarnation, too.

I also do commercial voice over work independently, providing my pipes for the likes of many national commercial spots.

I'm very excited to be the evening host on 92.7 KTRX and turn the party up at night!


Monday-Friday 12am-5am

Lindsey: Overnight-X

I began interning in Gainesville, Florida in 2008. I was quickly invited on to do weekends and eventually began doing mid-days.

In 2013, I started at a new station in Tampa, Florida, doing weekends and hosting the Saturday nigh Specialty metal show, "The Pit," before eventually doing nights.

In September, 2014, I moved to Salt Lake City, Utah to do mornings there and moved to mid-days in January.

Now, I'm happy to be a part of The-X family in Ardmore and hope to continue the good tunes in the wee-hours of the morning for all you third-shift workers and early risers!
