I’m a native Texan and proud of it. I was born and raised in the BBQ Capital of Texas, Lockhart, but I’ve been in East Texas for about 25 years, so this is where my family and I call home. I have a patient, beautiful wife who has kept me in line since 1994, plus 3 great kids…even though they were the cause of my premature balding and greying. I went to college at UT-Austin and Texas A&M, mainly to become a meteorologist. But my love of country music took over, plus, in radio, you never have to grow up. As
Sean Ericson...ugly, slow and old. Some may say that, but my kids still think I’m pretty cool. (kinda) I have been at Kicks 105 for over 20 years...hence the “old” part. A real appreciation for Texas Country, Country, heck all types of music, keep the job a blast. You will usually find me with no pants on (I really prefer shorts) and wearing flip flops somewhere near the water with Jimmy Buffett providing the soundtrack. Married to an awesome woman, I have two talented and beautiful daughters and one horribly disfigured step son
Martin comes to the East Texas area from a small town on the Hudson River just north of New York City. He's '"The Digital Guy," and makes sure that all of the stuff that happens on the site, on Facebook, and on Twitter is just as cool than what you hear on the radio. Martin likes old cars, loud rock & roll (he plays drums), and the New York Yankees. He was previously a Producer at WBAI in New York and Program Director and morning show host at WERS in Boston, and was voted Outstanding Radio Personality at the 31st EVVY Awards.
Texas born and Texas proud! I’ve got tattoos to prove it!! I got my start in radio here in 1989, and was hired by Danny Merrell in the fall of 1991. After working in Houston radio for a few years, I loaded up the Rixxterra, and drove back up Hwy 59 to the welcoming arms of the piney woods. My passion is country music, and the country music lifestyle! I keep my finger pressed firmly on the pulse of the Texas/Red Dirt scene, and pass along the exciting new music, and artists that I get to experience
Sam Alex has always been a big fan of country music -- he's worked for country stations across the nation and never misses his favorite acts when they come to town. He's been on red carpets for many different awards shows and interviewed some of your favorite celebrities, like Will Ferrell and Taylor Swift.
