“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened”.  Those were my final words on the old Steve & DC Show. I was walking away from a longtime radio partnership that had incredible highs and a few lows too. A radio show that had been syndicated on 40+ radio stations, achieved record high ratings in St Louis, & even fired and rehired after a stupid on-air remark. The radio show featured a cast of crazy characters that were like family. But my own family needed me, so I packed my bags and came home to Alabama to be closer to my aging parents. More on that coming up.

The Steve & DC radio partnership began on Z 102 FM in a Northport, Al cow pasture not so far away. We were young and determined to blaze a trail. That trail included an infamous stunt still talked about, “Moon Over McFarland”. It had nothing to do with the moon in the sky. It was notoriety from that kind of fun that took the Steve & DC Show to New Orleans. The show went from worst to first in radio ratings in less than a year. Our future would include time in Birmingham, St Louis, and other cities via radio syndication. We were picked up by Sirius Satellite Radio and heard everywhere. Life was mostly good.

When I left our radio family to be closer to mine in Alabama, I always thought the Steve & DC Show might someday be reborn. Now that feeling is reality. Starting Monday October 4th from 5-10am the Steve & DC Show will be heard live on 953 The Bear from Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Together again thanks to Townsquare Media and a radio trail blazer named David Dubose.
