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!

This is my Mother, Sandy Appleby (circa 1945). She's the next to youngest of seven children, and was born and raised on a farm in Lexington, Ohio. In this photo she has her whole life in front of her. Who knew she would fall for a boy from Mansfield, Ohio who had just moved to Lexington. They'd Graduate in 1957 and Sandy waited 4 years for him to finish college in Vermont. They would marry in 1961 and start a family 10 months later when I was born. My sister Lynnette came along in '66 and Susan in '69. We moved from Ohio to California, back to Ohio, to Illinois and back to Ohio. As tough as it was to restart the household so many times Mom hung in there...kept the home fires burning and together Mom and Dad raised us kids. We always had a good meal on the table, clean clothes for school, help with homework and after-school activities, a shoulder to cry on, hugs, kisses and prayers...and we thank you Mom for all of that .
We are all grown now in our own homes with great jobs thanks to all that Mom (and Dad) taught us about life, love and responsibility.
There is so much more to the story of Sandy Appleby, but let me just say we are so grateful for the life she makes for all of her children and grandchildren (and great-grandson to be) and the love she shows us all.
Love you, Mom!
Moms are a wealth of wisdom. In honor of our moms this coming Mother's Day, here are some of the most important pieces of wisdom she has passed down to us:
