Weekends

Hey, I’m Pamela J, nice to meet you. I come from more of a music background than radio, but worked for local stations 99.3 KWAY in Waverly and 89.1 KWOF in Cedar Rapids, on-air and in sales.

While the other guys at KOKZ have more radio on their resume, I can say I might look better in heels. I will be taking on various shifts to help you though your day with Iowa Classic Hits, thanks for letting me tag along!

Buckle up kids – I’m blogging like a Mother

My mom is sooooo going to bust on me for the title, but it cracked me up, and I was told I wouldn’t get fired for it.  So, I can’t think it’s just me, but life is really odd right now.  My kids are mostly on their own, the house is more empty and now…read more »
