Andy Austin

After circling Northern New England for the better part of my radio career, I’m pumped to be part of the team at WOKQ. It’s a homecoming of sorts, as OKQ has always been in my life. It’s the first station I remember listening to. Cutting wood with my dad, OKQ was on in the neighbor’s shop, and etc. Raised on the best Alabama, Ronnie Milsap, Larry Gatlin, Randy Travis, George Strait…all of it. Plus, wanting to be in broadcasting since I can remember, it’s no doubt this station was a big influence. When I’m not part of the end of your workday, I’m keeping track of what’s going on in the world of racing. Local, NASCAR, Indy, dirt, and etc. Also, I’m (what I want to call) an avid road biker. The seacoast has a ton of great riding, and I’m looking forward to getting back on these roads. That’s enough for here.

However, sticking on a list of songs to mark the celebration of the Declaration of Independence is plain dumb. It's the "Every Breath You Take" of wedding songs...have you LISTENED to the lyrics? Nothing irks me more than the usual rollout of classic rock lists with BITUSA right up there with the equally misguided choice of Neil Young's "Rockin' In The Free World." Don't even get me started with Edwin Starr's use of "War" as a pro war rally. Anyway, taking matters in my own hands, here's a list of great songs to celebrate our freedom:

Strawberry Picking Season. Where To Pick In Central Maine

Summer finally kicks off Wednesday, and it's ripe for strawberry picking season. Not only is Pick Your Own a great family activity, I've also found it can be an economical way to  have fruit year round. By freezing strawberries and blueberries, I haven't opened a door in the frozen food section for a few years.
