Broadway grew up in Marne, Michigan, a small town surrounded by farms. Perhaps it was the smell of cow manure that made him the eccentric character he is today.
Broadway’s introduction to Country music came through the 90’s hit, Boot Scootin' Boogie. He says, "I played the Boot Scootin' Boogie cassette single so many times that mom threw it away and said it was an accident."
He is a huge advocate for the American Cancer Society. His mother passed away from Lung cancer in 2008, and father has battled three different types of cancer.
When not in the studio, Broadway enjoys cartoons, Squidbillies on Adult Swim is his favorite. He also enjoys Stephen King books and spending time with his family consisting of his wife, two kids and dog.
Cory Myers is a Connecticut native, raised in the All-American Valley borough of Naugatuck. She attended Holy Cross High School and went on to college at Eastern CT State University and Central CT where she was bitten by the radio bug. A graduate of the Connecticut School of Broadcasting (because college took too long for her!), she started her career as a traffic reporter flying in a plane above Hartford and quickly moved onto more solid ground, literally. Paying her dues in overnights, she quickly moved into mornings as a producer (since she was there when the morning show came in and they needed help anyway).
A music lover, Cory has worked on-air in Top 40, Hard rock, Oldies and Country, where she has made her home for the past 17 years. She’s covered the Grammy Awards, Radio Music Awards, several star studded movie premieres, the CMA’s and ACM’s and even the MTV Movie Awards.
Cory loves to donate her time to various charity organizations such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the Connecticut Humane Society, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, Gifts of Love and Make-A-Wish Foundation among others, hosting various charity motorcycle rides, auctions and events for them.
She and her husband Jason live in Southington with their three favorite people in the world, their three kids, Austin, 12, Carter, 5 and Gianna, 3, and their dogs Aretha, an American Staffordshire Terrier, they adopted from the CT Humane Society and their new puppy Capone. When she’s not working, you can find her at the Pricechopper or Walmart in town, making her own sauce (she’s 100% Italian and has big hair to prove it), sitting by her pool in the summer time or watching reruns of Star Trek or some other crazy sci-fi show (she is a self-professed nerd at heart and proud of it!)

Don't let his age fool you! Jack still has the heart of a puppy. Through Jack may be more quiet now, he still loves going for long walks and to sit in the grass while getting some sun on his face! He spends most of his time curled up in his blankets with his favorite toys. Jack is a very mellow dog who is looking for a family to give him the love and attention he needs. If you think you could be the right match for Jack, please come visit us at Newington branch of the CT Humane Society!
- Jack would do best with children ages 12 and up.
- Jack can adapt to most household evironments - apartments considered.
- Jack enjoys the company of dogs and hasnt met any cats...yet!
- Jack would do best in a home with previous dog experience (General Experience).
Dwight called me on his way to Piers Morgan to plug his show at MGM Foxwoods and talk a little business...
BW: Your album '3 Pears' set records on the Americana charts, and when we think Dwight Yoakam, we think country artist. Did that surprise you and was that something you set out to do?
DY: You hope for successful reception of what you do musically; that folks receive it in a positive way. In the case of which chart it landed on, it's a coin toss and anybody's guess. We're in a world where things are in constant flux. I think that the traditional country chart has really kind of changed its demographic (in that) it's become a very young, late teen, early adult kind of format and that probably pushed listeners and artists over into other charts, I know AAA's playing us a lot. Although, in saying that, the next five minutes could mean that I'm back on country radio. Country radio's a very broad, encompassing kind of format today.
BW: Are you disappointed or hurt at all that country radio hasn't really gotten behind you?
DY: I've been really, really fortunate. I had a lot of success. Country radio has been great supporters of my music and I'll always support country radio when asked. We're doing interviews like this all the time at country radio stations. I really think that country radio has become a very diverse format. So when you say country radio, I think Americana radio is also transcending the boundary and they're both commingling at times.
