Listen every Saturday morning 7-8. We are TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS as we spotlight the fine "area" businesses and get to meet the fine area businessmen and businesswomen who provide such great products and services to us here in Central Pennsylvania....and alot of times....maybe some services and products you may not be aware of or know are available here in our area.
It is our mission to support our local businesses because nowhere will you get better value and customer service than with a locally owned and operated business.
"We're Takin Care of Business".....Saturday mornings on WHP Talk Radio 580
I have lived in Central PA since the early 80's. I grew up outside of Uniontown, PA in the southwestern part of the state in a VERY small coal mining town. Worked on the farm, in the mines, drove truck and worked hard. Went to college at West Virginia University from 1975-79. Was offered my first radio job at WAJR/WVAQ in Morgantown, WV right out of school. In fact, I picked up my diploma Sunday afternoon at 2PM and started that day on the air at 4PM.
I moved to Harrisburg and Central PA in 1984 to get out of radio, but ended up being offered a job at WKBO and then Sunny 99. I was very fortunate in meeting Kathi Wise (Homecoming Queen-CD East 1978) when we worked together at 99.3 FM in the late 80's and we were married in October of 1992. Our first son Jordan was born in October of 1993. Our second son Matthew was born in September of 1997. We have lived in the Linglestown area at the base of the mountain since 97 and are blessed to have WONDERFUL neighbors and friends who we enjoy our spare time with.
We have quite a menagerie. A gorgeous black lab named Casey, a FAT cat named Ramsey and also Sabrina...a white cat we rescued from a shelter who we later found out cannot hear.
I love the area and am proud to call it home. But still a proud supporter of the Pittsburgh Pirates, Steelers and Penguins....and of course the WVU Mountaineers.
Along with my on air work Saturday mornings on WHP, I am the full time Creative Director for the 5 Clear Channel-Harrisburg radio stations. I write and produce many of the commercials you hear. I am also the voice on commercials you hear on other area radio stations and on local TV.
I also "produce" other radio programs including Let's Talk Travel With Sandy Fenton and The Old Barn Hockey Show and Legends Of Success with John Resnick which is broadcast nationwide.
I live by the motto of FAITH & STRENGTH. I am blessed to have a job and career that I love. I enjoy coming to work every single day. I love life and love to laugh. And I will always greet you with a smile.
7-7:30 FIREARMS & AMMUNITION AT STAUDT'S GUN SHOP
We are back again at Staudt's Gun Shop for a visit and sit down with owner Joe Staudt. They are celebrating their two anniversary this month and it's been two great years. They have developed quite a customer base because of their selection and friendly hometown service.
We'll ask Joe what sets him apart from the big stores and what he does different with his customers. We'll also find out if there actually is a shortage in ammunition and how he is dealing with that.
One of the things that makes this gun shop unique is their gunsmithing services. Staudt's not only sells guns, but they have an expert staff that services and repairs them.
We'll also talk about his selection of Champion safes and the gun classes he offers for customers buying a handgun or shotgun. And how he is helping area hunters get ready for fall.
A great local gun shop where they know you by name and treat you like a friend. Visit Staudt's Gun Shop at 7050 Allentown Blvd across from Aroogas. Open Mon-Fri from 10-8, Saturdays 10-6. Online at www.staudtsgunshop.com
Here is a video tour of the store with Joe Staudt
