And, of course… Amos, the “Rock ‘n’ Roll Pigg”
It all started many years ago when I was but a little piglet.
Mom and Dad took us – the whole litter – to Santa Cruz, California on vacation..
I was the runt of the litter, and while everyone else was exploring the boardwalk and the beach,
I made a life-changing discovery. KPIG. Radio Station KPIG’s studios were right next to the boardwalk!
I stood there for hours, with my little flat nose pressed up against the glass of the DJ booth.
I was in hog heaven! I knew from that moment that when I grew up to be a boar I would be be a Radio DJ!
Wow! I must have squealed WEEE WEEE WEEE all the way home!
I’m not a pigment of your imagination! I’m Amos the “Rock ‘n’ Roll Pigg” on WCOG Radio!
