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!)

January 19th, 2013 will be a night Angel and her parents will never forget thanks to George Strait. The singer, who is currently on his “Cowboy Rides Away” tour, took time out of his day to make the day of someone else. Angel is a 16 year old with severe cerebral palsy and brain damage who happens to love George Strait.
Angel is not really able to do much besides watch T.V. and listen to music and George Strait always makes her face light up. Back in 2006 Angel’s parents heard that George Strait was coming to town and they decided to contact his management team. They sent the family an autographed picture as well as tickets to the show. In between that show and now Angel’s love for George never ceased. She watches “Pure Country” repeatedly with her parents, always smiling whenever she sees or hears good ole King George.
Angel has been a fan for years, and just a few weeks ago her dream came true. When George Strait blew through Oklahoma City Angel and her family were George’s invited personal guests to the show. The family got floor seats to the show and Angel got to go back stage and hang with her favorite singer. This was really a moment this family will never forget. Angel’s dad said,
They say good things come to those who wait, and Honestly I believe that is true, George Strait may not be touring anymore after 2014 but he is leaving the music industry just as he came into it a class act, a decent, honorable person, he and his management took a dream that was 7 years in the making and made it a reality for my Daughter Angel and for that my wife and I shall always be grateful.
It is always great to hear touching stories like this and we appreciate this family sharing their story with us. We also have to give kudos to Mr. George Strait for his kind heart. The family likes referring to their special night as the night “A King met an Angel.”
