Lia 

I’m Lia. The host. The Facilitator. The sticky substance that holds the stories together with the songs. I’m the gal who can’t for the life of me keep a secret yet everyone seems to tell me their secrets anyway. I love my job. I’m happily married to the luckiest guy on earth, Chad. I have 4 kids. All of them smart, spoiled and love country music. In my spare time, I play word games, mind games and lock myself in the bathroom for 5 minutes of peace at least once a day.  Here’s a secret about me:  I never talk on the phone when I’m not at work. That could be because I do it every night for hours.  My sisters complain constantly about me never calling them back. Even my husband occasionally goes to voice mail. We have 3 dogs and spend as much spare time as we can on our boat. Even holidays like Christmas and New Years, we are on that boat.
I was born and raised in Kentucky. My mom, a Southern Belle housewife, and my dad, a farmer, bar owner, janitor, banjo picker, had finally had enough kids. I was the last of four and, believe me, I think I was the reason they didn’t want anymore!  I grew up a small town in Kentucky, with not much to do but plug my ears while my dad tried to pick his banjo and run through the sprinklers on a hot summer’s day. I was definitely a Daddy’s Girl. Even though I hated that banjo, I loved my dad. The hardest thing I ever went through in my life was the death of my dad. I was only fifteen–too much for a young girl to take! When I was a kid Country Music was always around. In the car, in the house, at my dad’s bar. I have to admit most of my teenage years were spent listening to Rock Music. I was a HUGE fan of Pink Floyd.  We’d have music wars in our home with my dad cranking up “He Stopped Loving Her Today” to dry to drown out my “Comfortably Numb.”

I left Kentucky, my family, my friends and my life behind after my dad passed and moved hundreds of miles cross-country to be with my oldest sister, Connie (my role model, best friend and confidante), and her husband. I finished school and moved out on my own at 17. I went off to college with absolutely no idea  what I was going to do with my life. Purely by accident, I got into Country radio.  Believe me when I say that I am sure my dad teamed up with God to make that happen. When I started The Lia Show I had no club it would be something I’d do for years to come. I just hoped that people would listen and occasionally call. They did and they still do.
As far as this show goes, I just want you to know that we all work very hard each night to put this thing together. I’m so lucky to have such a great team of people to work with. I’ve hosted The Lia Show for more years than I care to count, however I feel like over those years I’ve grown up on the air and I love my job.

I realize you don't know until it's you, but especially if I had berries, I think it'd take more than three days to resort to bee-eating. 😲🐝 #howfillingcanthatbee

According to NHTSA, in 54% of #heatstroke deaths, the children were forgotten in the vehicle by the caregiver. Always #checkforbaby in the back seat. #wheresbaby http://ow.ly/MBkY30kn9K4
