The Lia Show

The Lia Show

I’m Lia. The host. The Facilitator. The sticky substance that holds the stories together with the songs. I’m the gal who can’t for the life of me keep a secret yet everyone seems to tell me their secrets anyway. I love my job. I’m happily married to the luckiest guy on earth, Chad. I have 4 kids. All of them smart, spoiled and love country music. In my spare time, I play word games, mind games and lock myself in the bathroom for 5 minutes of peace at least once a day.  Here’s a secret about me:  I never talk on the phone when I’m not at work. That could be because I do it every night for hours.  My sisters complain constantly about me never calling them back. Even my husband occasionally goes to voice mail. We have 3 dogs and spend as much spare time as we can on our boat. Even holidays like Christmas and New Years, we are on that boat.

I was born and raised in Kentucky. My mom, a Southern Belle housewife, and my dad, a farmer, bar owner, janitor, banjo picker, had finally had enough kids. I was the last of four and, believe me, I think I was the reason they didn’t want anymore!  I grew up in a small town in Kentucky, with not much to do but plug my ears while my dad tried to pick his banjo and run through the sprinklers on a hot summer’s day. I was definitely a Daddy’s Girl. Even though I hated that banjo, I loved my dad. The hardest thing I ever went through in my life was the death of my dad. I was only fifteen–too much for a young girl to take! When I was a kid Country Music was always around. In the car, in the house, at my dad’s bar. I have to admit most of my teenage years were spent listening to Rock Music. I was a HUGE fan of Pink Floyd.  We’d have music wars in our home with my dad cranking up “He Stopped Loving Her Today” to try and drown out my “Comfortably Numb.”

I left Kentucky, my family, my friends and my life behind after my dad passed and moved hundreds of miles cross-country to be with my oldest sister, Connie (my role model, best friend and confidante), and her husband. I finished school and moved out on my own at 17. I went off to college with absolutely no idea  what I was going to do with my life. Purely by accident, I got into Country radio.  Believe me when I say that I am sure my dad teamed up with God to make that happen. When I started The Lia Show I had no clue it would be something I’d do for years to come. I just hoped that people would listen and occasionally call. They did and they still do.

As far as this show goes, I just want you to know that we all work very hard each night to put this thing together. I’m so lucky to have such a great team of people to work with. I’ve hosted The Lia Show for more years than I care to count, however I feel like over those years I’ve grown up on the air and I love my job.
