Monday – Friday, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Duke Hamilton is known around the station as the DJ “with all the animals,” and yes – it’s true. He and his wife, Barbara, live on 150 acres in Pendleton County, Kentucky, that they share with miniature horses, llamas, goats, rabbits and a host of other critters. So when he’s not on the air, you’ll most likely find Duke at the barn dishing out the daily rations, cleaning stalls or tossing hay bales from the loft.
Duke says he’s been very fortunate to have spent the majority of his radio career at B-105 (date started at B-105: December 5, 1977). In fact, it’s often said that he started in radio about the same time as Marconi! But he loves it when listeners tell him how they “grew up” listening to him on the radio.
Duke’s a Missouri boy, born and raised in small town called Josephville, about 50 miles west of St. Louis. His previous radio stops include stations in Missouri and Little Rock, Arkansas, as well as four years doing a ‘”command performance” for Uncle Sam in the Armed Forces Radio and Television Service.
Without a doubt, the highlight of Duke’s career came in June of 2003 when he was inducted into the Country Radio Broadcasters’ Disc Jockey Hall of Fame.
