PHLASH PHELPS, who kept getting fired for his on-air antics, and burned through 17 jobs before landing at XM RADIO on AUGUST 21, 2000, is celebrating 14 years at the satcaster.
Radio's Best Friend, ART VUOLO shares with ALL ACCESS, "PHELPS was hired before the official launch of XM which was on SEPTEMBER 21st, 2001, by DAVE LOGAN and LEE ABRAMS who were searching for a wacky DJ (like they were in the '60s) for mornings."
VUOLO had video (imagine that) of PHELPS at WKMZ/MARTINSBURG, WV and from B-106/FORT WAYNE, and remembered, "LOGAN and ABRAMS exclaimed 'Oh my God!' They didn't think anyone like that still existed. He was hired on the spot."
Former Governor DIRK KEMPTHRONE of IDAHO, who was also once Mayor of BOISE and Secretary of the Interior during the BUSH 43 years, is a big fan of the PHELPS morning host on SIRIUSXM's Sixties on 6 channel. To honor PHELPS, he is having a U.S. flag flown over the Capitol dome to mark the event. The flag will then be presented to PHELPS as a special keepsake.
