For Immediate Release

Temple Terrace, Florida - January 25, 2003 - Dusty Owens, CEO and Owner of Traditional Country Music Radio, announced early this morning that TCM Radio is officially “on the air.” The address of the Internet radio station is www.tcmradio.com. TCM is dedicated to promote all genres of classic country music, bluegrass and gospel.

Owens, who lives in Temple Terrace (Tampa), Florida, got his start in radio in Flint, Michigan at the age of 16. A few years later, he was writing exclusively for Acuff-Rose Publishing Co. and recording for Columbia Records. Today, he continues to write and sing country music, and records for Admiral Records. His biggest hits were “Once More,” “Hello Operator,” and “Just Call On Me,” which he penned. Recently, Admiral released a new CD, “Dusty Owens Sings Once More,” which features “You Can’t Find Hank Williams (On The Jukebox Anymore).” Owens will do some of the Dee Jay work for TCM Radio.

Charlene Gilmore of Jourdanton, Texas, has been appointed the Station Manager of TCM Radio. She serves as the web mistress, a vital role in Internet broadcasting. Gilmore is a professional at her work, having designed websites for numerous well-known artists and radio personalities. Her business is Design by Dumplins. She is an accomplished vocalist and records for Misty Records. Her latest CD is entitled, “Char.” She has garnered prestigious awards including the King Eagle “Up and Coming Artist” award this past October.

Richard White of Nashville, Tennessee, is one of TCM Radio’s Dee Jays on the “Country” channel. White has called Nashville his home for many years, where he has gathered information about artists, bands and recordings. White uses this information to make his radio shows very interesting. He wears many hats: historian, singer, songwriter, musician, and radio engineer. White is currently managing a well-known country artist.

Sandy Samples of Houston, Texas will be hosting “The Christian Side Of Country” on the Gospel channel on TCM Radio. Samples started her musical career as a bass guitarist in the 1960s, backing many of the country legends of today. As a country singer, the “Sandy Samples Show” was developed and she toured from coast to coast and border to border. Saved by grace in 1983, she started a music ministry that has continued to this present day. Samples and her husband, Don Jones, own and operate Misty Records and Mo-Tex Music, a publishing company.
