Almost ten years ago–my how time flies–David Ball, explaining why it took him so long to become an overnight country music sensation, said “You know… it takes forever to get out of Texas, and then when you do, you’re in Oklahoma.” Having gone to my officer basic training at Fort Sill, I knew exactly what he meant. Indeed, I once observed that every country song about Oklahoma was about leaving Oklahoma.
What brought this to mind was the announcement by Cam Edwards that he’s leaving his talk radio gig in Oklahoma for “the opportunity of a lifetime” in my neck of the woods. Getting to leave Oklahoma is certainly an opportunity only a fool could pass on.
I can’t say exactly what I’ll be doing at this point, except to tell you that you’ll still be able to get your fill of me, only this time on a much greater scale. I’m going to work for a public relations and communications firm in a broadcast capacity.
There is a rumor that he’s going to take Howard Stern’s show on Clear Channel–but with less nudity–but it’s unconfirmed.
