Joseph Bates of St. Louis, MO became a Real Rock Hero in the Real Rock Army today!

Joseph served in the USAF the EXACT days that George Herbert Walker Bush was President. He took his oath 5 minutes after he did and drove off of Ft. Meade as Bubba was taking his oath

Joseph was an E4 when he was discharged and worked as a Morse Code Interceptor in Greece and the NSA

Joseph is still unable to talk about his job in the USAF as he still has 2 years left on his 30 year NDA, but he can say he helped to keep our men and women in the Gulf safe during Desert Storm

Joseph received a KSHE Freddy Meat t-shirt just before he left for Crete, which he proudly wore all over Europe, and the Beltway once he returned to the states, spreading his love and awareness of his hometown station

Joseph has been a life-long fan of KSHE. He loves the KSHE Morning Rock Show especially the :30 second song challenge, KSHE Court, the Brain Strain, and Party Town

Joseph looks forward to Klose’s Kut Above as that means it’s time for lunch. He also looks forward to Exit 90 as that means an end to the work day

Joseph almost never misses the KSHE Klassics Show or Sammy Hagar’s Top Rock Countdown

Joseph is currently single and has no kids … that he knows of

Joseph is a contractor that works on, and with, rental hospital beds. This will be his 22nd year and while he used to get up and down the road, now he’s mostly at MoBap

Joseph loves going to conventions, concerts and sporting events. His favorite hobby is putting down a cold one with family and friends

KSHE songs Joseph wanted to hear today:

The Doobie Brothers – Black Water
Lynyrd Skynyrd – Free Bird
Rush – Working Man
