WYRK Acoustic Show Reunites Two Old Friends

Last night’s WYRK acoustic show at the U.B. Center for the Arts featured three of country music’s hottest acts: Thompson Square, Hunter Hayes and JT Hodges. All three delivered solid performances and I really don’t think anyone in the audience left the show disappointed. As I have said many times on the air, these shows are my favorite out of all the concerts we are involved in. I really enjoy seeing performers who are on the way up in the country music world. Another dynamci which makes these shows so special is the fact that they are indeed acoustic. There is nothing more pure than listening to someone sing when accompanied by an acoustic guitar.

I thoroughly enjoyed the show, but what made the night extra special for me was seeing my old friend Chris Loss. Chris is now working for Stoney Creek Records, the label of Thompson Square. Our friendship goes back over twenty years ago when Chris was looking to break into the radio business. Eventually , he became our 7pm to Midnight personality here at WYRK. You might remember the name Chris Kelly. That was his on-air name at the station. After leaving our station, he moved onto to a few other markets as a radio personality before landing a job as a rep for a country music record company. Chris spent several years of his career working with Lyric street records and Rascal Flatts. He spent quite a few years on the road with them. We would always keep in touch, but as the years go by, it’s never as often as one would like. Last night, Chris surprised me by showing up backstage at the show. What a great feeling to see my old friend. We had not talked in a couple of years, but we picked right up where we left off. To me, that’s always the sign of a great friendship. So, not only did I see a wonderful show last night, but I also got a chance to reconnect with an old buddy.
