Wow!! looking back at when I first worked at WFXY in Middlesboro, KY so many memories come back to mind. I have used many names throughout my radio career such as, Mr. Boogie, The Boogie Woogie Man to Franklin Bartholomew. Now in 2014 it’s simply whatever one calls me..The Bossman. Technology has come along way from cart machines, turntables, manual working the board to today’s new technology of the computer doing it all. Recently, my wife and I had the opportunity to purchase the two  local stations that I worked for in the beginning of my career. Like they say radio never gets out of your blood. Over two years WFXY simulcasted with our sister station WANO Pineville, KY and the KAT COUNTRY brand. On June 1st, 2013 “The Original” FOXY Radio, AM 1490  WFXY returned with “The Classic Hits” playing the music you love and the station you grew up with. WFXY “WE’RE BACK”!!!!!!
