Hey everybody! I'm glad to be back visiting with you on a daily basis. If you've ever listened to Mid Ohio's Country WNCO, then we're probably already friends. If not , let me introduce myself. I'm Matt Appleby, a Lexington native and Ashland High School graduate who's been on the air in mid Ohio since the winter of 1980. And yes that is my real name (who'd make that up?) My wife Kelly and I make our home in Mansfield and our daughter Sara is out on her own working as a case manager RN for a home health care agency. And while this is my first opportunity to DJ on Y105, I have been a fan of this station for a long time and I love the music. I'd be glad to have you as a Facebook friend, too. Thanks for tuning in weeknights on Y105!
Is it too early to pick a winner from the new Dancing With The Stars cast? If I were a betting man I'd say it will be one of the athletes. There's Jacoby Jones from the Baltimore Ravens and Olympic figure skater Dorothy Hammill. Skaters and football players have faired well in the past but country music stars (Bill Ray Cyrus) have not . That's why I'm expecting Wynonna Judd to exit early and Kellie Pickler at about mid-season. Can a boxer's footwork skills translate to the dance floor? We'll have a good idea following the first couple of weeks watching Victor Ortiz. As for the rest of the bunch your dark horse might be Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman. I'll be keeping my eye on it, how about you?
Here's the complete list of celebrity dancers:
• Boxer Victor Ortiz
• Soap star Ingo Rademacher
• Disney Channel star Zendaya Coleman
• Comedian Andy Dick
• Reality star Lisa Vanderpump
• Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman
• Olympic skater Dorothy Hamill
• Comedian D.L. Hughley
• NFL star Jacoby Jones
