Sandy brings 29 years of experience to “The Sandy Show,” most notably as half of “The JB and Sandy Morning Show” in Austin, Texas.
Known as a guy’s guy with a big heart, Sandy started at the legendary WOW in Omaha while attending the University of Nebraska at Omaha. After graduating, he got his first morning show opportunity at WHEN in Syracuse, New York. Growing up a military brat made moving across the country and not knowing a soul seemed like a normal thing to do. After two brutal winters, the break of a lifetime came when he received a call (this was before email was the norm) asking if he would be interested in an opportunity in Austin, Texas. It was mid-October, and the high temp in Syracuse that day was 40; in Austin, it was 80. The decision was easy, and success followed.
Sandy has been named “Austin’s Best Radio Personality” by The Austin Chronicle five times, “Best Radio Personality” by Austin Monthly magazine twice, and nominated to the Texas Radio Hall of Honor. Two principals have led to his success: (1) Live an interesting life, and share it on the radio and (2) What comes out of the speakers is the most important.
Sandy tends to lose things and loves dark comedy, fishing and feeding the homeless. He holds the self-proclaimed world record of being a best man seven times.

Meet the newest member of the Mix team. Her name is Amy. She was born in Sturgis, SD and grew up in Tucson, AZ. She came back to South Dakota for college. Then she loaded up her bags and she moved to Tennessee. She worked radio and then went into the health and fitness field. Then in 2012 she moved back to Rapid City to work at Regional Health. She also did a lot of Regional’s commercial voice work and public speaking. Then she came to HomeSlice Media. She is on 93.9 The Mix weekdays from 10am-3pm and Saturdays from 10am-2pm. She has been on four of Homeslice’s six radio stations, and won’t rest until she’s been on them all. We’re just glad she spends the day with us on 93.9 the Mix. By the way, her last name is pronounced Rose.
What a great surprise when Homeslice Media radio veteran Dean Taylor agreed to be on 939.the Mix weekday afternoons. Dean’s a very busy guy. He’s on each day from 10am-3pm on 98.7 Kat Country and then slides down the hall to the Mix studio from 3-7pm. He also takes care of a lot of the things you hear on the air on both stations, music included. Dean is a very well known voice in Black Hills radio and we’re lucky to have him.
Great programs and Mix Weekend Music with:
