Who Am I?
Howdy, friend. I'm Randy "Tex" Hill and I've been producing and hosting the Western Swing Time Radio Show on the air now for over six years. I started in radio back in 1997 on a talk show in Austin, Texas. Since that time I have been inducted into the Sacramento Western Swing Society Hall of Fame and the Pacific Northwest Western Swing Hall of Fame. I've been named in a list of the "Top 10 DJ's" by the Academy of Western Artists and in 2016 I was named "DJ Of The Year" by the Cowtown Society of Western Music out of Ft. Worth, Texas. My love for Western Swing music began when I was a kid on a farm in central Texas where I was raised. My family had a stack of old 78 rpm records that belonged to my grandfather. Gene Autry was in the stack. So was Lefty Frizzell and Bobby Lord. I can't leave out B.B. King and Smiley Lewis. I eventually went on to learn how to play drums when I was 13 and I played in a Texas Swing band (among many other bands) for years. I still have a band called The Oregon Valley Boys. We play western swing. Yep. 

The Western Swing Time Radio Show
I started the Western Swing Time Radio Show in 2011 on KCKX radio in Woodburn, Oregon. From there, the show was picked up by KMUZ FM community radio in Salem, Oregon - then by KYAC FM community in Mill City, Oregon. Now the show is on a total of 6 stations (both terrestrial and internet) around the world...with more to come. I send a new 53 minute (or so) show out to all of the stations each Monday morning.

Why Do I Do The Show?
I love music and I am particularly in love with Western and Texas swing music. I have a lot of childhood memories wrapped around the music. Western Swing is the State Music of Texas. It's also a very small niche that few people are promoting on the radio anymore. 

What Else Do You Do?

I am one of those people who never get bored and I always have a ton of things going on. When I'm not creating the radio show I publish a bi-monthly regional magazine called, "Willamette Valley Life Magazine." I am also a graphic designer and as I mentioned earlier, I play in a band. Oh yeah, and I also create fine and assemblage art, but I rarely seem to have time to do those these days.

Thank You!
Thank you in advance for your support as a patron. You are helping to keep this historical music alive for generations to come. As Bob Wills (the patron saint of Western Swing) would say, "Ah ha! Take it away, Leon!"

Goals
$1 of $100 per month
I gotta kick this thing off somewhere so I'm starting at $100. It's nothing to sneeze at since I've been doing this weekly show for free for over six years now. :) What will I do with $100? Buy new music that I can't otherwise get for free from artist management. Help pay for the internet connection that I use to search for new artists and upload new shows to my affiliates around the world. Buy more coffee to help fuel my way through the 4-5+ hours it takes to research, record and edit the show. I do it all!
