Veteran of the Month
Our Veteran of the Month for July is Sylacauga native Christopher Blake Atkins. Mr. Atkins joined the United States Marines in 2002 as a military policeman. He served on the security team for Marine One during President George W. Bush’s administration and travelled around the world to secure areas before the President’s arrival. He left the Marines as a Sergeant in 2010 and is now an officer in the Calera Police Department. Military veterans deserve our deepest respect, recognition, and admiration for the decision they made to serve, defend, and protect our country, and the opportunity to share some of their stories is an honor. Our Veteran of the Month program is sponsored by Radney-Smith Funeral Home with the assistance of American Legion Post 45 in Sylacauga. Our feature programs are available for playback by clicking here.

Upcoming Local Elections
On August 23, most cities and towns in Alabama with a mayor-council form of government will hold municipal elections. Although many prospective candidates have announced their intentions to run for office, the qualification window is from July 5 through July 19 at 5:00 p.m.
To better inform citizens and encourage healthy public discussion, WYEA will be making a limited amount of advertising available at no charge to legally-qualified mayoral and city council candidates for positions in our primary local service area. On an equal opportunity basis, each candidate may request and will be given two 30-second announcements per day, up to 100 ads in total, to air from as early as the date of their qualification through election day.
We view this as an important public service, and there will be no charge for these announcements or related production. For more effective reach, candidates may, of course, purchase additional advertising at any time, but there is no obligation to do so. Our required Political Advertising Disclosure Statement is on file and available for candidate review.
For further information, qualified candidates for municipal offices in Sylacauga, Childersburg, and Oak Grove may email Mack Howell at MHowell@wyea.net.
The Wolfman lives!
Wolfman Jack is the most famous radio personality of all time.
Immortalized in the movie "American Graffiti", he also hosted the long-running NBC music series "The Midnight Special". Millions of people listened to him every night for howling sounds and great music.
When the Wolfman went to Rock & Roll Heaven in 1995, the tapes of all his shows had been locked in a vault and hidden away, and fans around the world searched for years to find them. At last, the cache was discovered by Dr. D. Wedge in the jungles of Mexico, in a cave guarded by 15 white wolves. The solid gold vault was retrieved under the cover of a moonless night, and the tapes inside were digitally remastered, then transported to Sylacauga under heavy guard for review by Yea!106.5's audio engineers.
Now, Wolfman Jack is back on the air on Yea!106.5 and WYEA!1290 for five howl-packed hours every Saturday night starting at 6:00 p.m. -- great music, hilarious comedy bits, funny phone calls, crazy characters, and celebrity interviews. Listen on FM, AM, WYEA.net, or via our smartphone and tablet apps.
Say Yea! Boogie with your baby and the Wolfman, and bring your Saturdays back to life!
