Best Local Radio Show Introduction Houston 2006 - Mister Misty, KCOH-AM/1430
It's midnight on Saturday, going into Sunday. It's high time to wind the party down and steer your mind over to matters relaxing and/or spiritual. And there's no better way to do that than to spin your radio dial over to KCOH, where Mister Misty ushers you from party-time to prayer-time with marvelous aplomb. Speaking over a sanctified organ that plays "Misty" for you, the veteran record jock murmurs, soothes and damn near hypnotizes you with his suggestions. "Sit down in your favorite chair, with your favorite person, and fill your favorite glass with your favorite drink," he whispers. In a world where most radio DJs are paid to read cards and then shut the hell up, it's a rare treat to hear one put on a performance -- especially one as good as this.
