Mama and DJ Dale

Hi, I’m DJ Dale. From 2007 – 2017 I was a volunteer dj on our excellent local community radio station, WMPG, with my show Wheeedoggies!.

Starting in 2009 I had the idea to call up my dear sweet mama down in Virginia each week and chat for a spell, thinking it would be fun for listeners to hear her accent, and because she is so sweet and kind and funny. We never had a plan of what to talk about. We usually started with the weather and went wherever either of us felt like going.

From the beginning the “Mama Joy” segment of my show was by far the most popular. Listeners across the spectrum – male, female, old, young & all in between – seemed to feel her genuine love for humanity right through the radio. To this day, people everywhere I go ask me how she is doing, and ask me to please pass along their heartfelt regards.

Here are the recordings of our conversations from those years. My mama is one-of-a-kind, and we were all lucky to have those minutes with her each week. I hope you enjoy re-listening, or hearing her for the first time. Mama is still with us, now in her mid-80’s, and…she loves you a bushel!
