Of all local Seattle-area radio personalities, Shellie Hart makes the best use of social media to promote her show and WARM 106.9 FM. Shellie should be consulting a major radio chain on how to communicate their message.

This is the woman who pretended to be black on KUBE in the 90s.
When?? I must’ve missed listening that day and I was an avid fan.
Of course back then the racism thing wasn’t as profitable for the newspapers, radio and politics in Seattle…
In my nearly ten years in country music radio, I never worked with or even knew any disc jockey that used anything but his or her real voice and delivery unless it was part of a comic routine. I listen to country stations from all over the world and I don’t hear that. Which ones are you talking about?
Having a natural twang (or any speech pattern) isn’t the same as affecting one. When I was at KAYO, Don Lane, who had a pleasant voice with an accent that could be said to have a wee bit of twang, was born and raised in McMinnville, Tennessee. If I had tried to emulate his sound, I would have been ridiculed if not fired. Kountry KAYO got hundreds of letters urging that KAYO’s first P.M. drive jock, Bobby Wooten, be fired because of the way he talked, courtesy of his upbringing in Paris, Arkansas. Their accents were real.
Some jocks try to acquire a broadcast quality voice for whatever format by working with a voice coach. That’s a different deal.
I just don’t see how developing a phony twang would be much of a career enhancement. How would it be listed on a resume?
There is a DJ after my “Hart”.
