Hi, my name is Chuck Baker, and I am absolutely delighted to be a part of the Kickin' Country 103.1 team! I have been a radio personality, working in various markets, across Texas for over 40 years. 17 of those years were spent in Bryan/College Station, before coming to San Angelo in 2009. I came on board with Kickin' Country 103.1 in October of 2013 as the afternoon air personality, and now, I have now transitioned to the morning show. I look forward to being the first thing you hear with the 'Kickin' Morning Wake-Up Call' every morning, all week long. I have known a lot of the Texas/Red Dirt artist for many years and love playing their music, interviewing them, and bringing them on stage all around the Concho Valley. Thanks for listening, and let me hear from you.
