Maynard and Dave

Mornings 6 AM – 10 AM

This is Maynard. 

He does the WCLG Morning Show, sometimes accompanied by Dave McClung – aka Dr. Dave.

We found him adrift in The Sea Of Lost Radio and rescued him, after he agreed to get up very early so the rest of the staff can sleep in.

Actually, he’s been part of the magic of broadcasting for over three decades, and we think he has plenty of miles left in him. 

Get in touch with him at maynard@ajgradio.com

SPECIALS:

8 o’clock – ’80s on 8

9 o’clock – ’90s at 9
