Route 66: The End Of The Road

From Michael Hyatt, host of Route 66 on KXCI:

This Tuesday night from 8 to 10pm marks the 20th anniversary of me hosting Route 66. In fact it will be exactly 20 years to the minute when I retire at 10pm.

You heard it right, I'm retiring from the KXCI airwaves at the end of this Tuesday's program. It's been great fun and a rewarding experience, but it's time to open the space for new blood.

Rose Lady will move into the 8 to 10 slot.

I'll be celebrating my 20th anniversary with Kidd Squidd as my guest, as he was during my first show on October 9, 1987.

I really enjoyed your show, Micheal. Will miss it and your voice on
Tuesday nights. (after adjusting to that switch, heh)

Take care and Happy Rails,

To My Friend "Hoodoo Hyatt-The Mojo Cowboy" -
Your taste in music (not just country) is impeccable. Tucson doesn't yet realize how much you'll be missed. You quietly put out good vibes and kool tunes to the airwaves for TWENTY years. The Big Mojo Cowboy in the Sky does not forget & neither do I. Hopefully you'll join me for a show on Mystery Jukebox some tyme. See ya 'round the ole pueblo! yer kozmic pal 4ever, kiDDsquiDD

Well tucson just won't be the same I guess. Some of my strongest impressions and memories of kicking around town (live in OR now), or the deserts and mountians, revolve around the rt 66 show.

I recall beaming in the show on the truck radio while camped deep in the galiuros. Lost in time with a brilliant sunset, a beer, and a lonesome lonesome train song.

But I guess even a radio show has to catch the westbound train eventually...
