WOTT/Watertown Grants Special Guest DJ Wish
June 25, 2015 at 9:31 AM (PT)
COMMUNITY BROADCASTERS Active Rock WOTT/(94 ROCK)/WATERTOWN, NY is granting a very special guest DJ stint next month on the birthday of one of its most passionate listeners. TYLER SEYMOUR is going to be 22 on JULY 17th. He has autism, and according to his sister KRYSTEN BOWEN, TYLER is "very high functioning and doesn't talk much unless it's about stuff he likes such as wrestling, video games, movies, food and most of all, music."
KRYSTEN posted all of this in a recent FACEBOOK message to WOTT PD LANCE HALE. BOWEN also posted, "I'd really like to do something special for him. He used to say that he wanted to be a DJ. I used to joke and tell him he'd better get used to talking lol. He really likes arranging playlists and stuff and picking what we will listen to. I was wondering if you would be interested in letting him come in and hang for a couple hours and maybe help out. I just thought this would be so cool for him because he puts the radio on your station as soon as he gets in the car."
HALE responded to KRYSTEN's message and is set to let TYLER have his wish on his 22nd birthday by assisting HALE in programming an hour of music that day for 94 ROCK, and he'll guest DJ as well. HALE and KRYSTEN decided the best way for TYLER to get the news about his big guest DJ shift was hearing about it first hand via the power of radio.
