Elmer Aho – Host of American Country Gold on 103-FXD

Marquette, MichiganAugust 27th, 2016 – After being gone for the past few weeks I was glad to be back to host my show, American Country Gold, on 103-FXD and WFXD.com on Saturday night from 7pm to Midnight. Folks from all over the world called me up on Saturday night to welcome me back to the microphone. While I was gone my working partner Eric brought you a previous show on 103-FXD. I know folks still tried calling the studio to get in touch with me while I was gone. I had quite a few messages on the studio phone that were left for me, too!

I did have to play some “catch up” on Saturday night during American Country Gold. Normally I do Elmer’s Pick Night the last Saturday of the month (Saturday night was the last Saturday of the month) but decided to scrap it since I was gone the past 3 weeks.

I had hundreds of emails, Facebook messages, and even snail mail that came to the 103-FXD studio while I was away. I really do appreciate all the concern from my loyal listeners just like you! Folks from one end of the Upper Peninsula to the other were wondering what’s been going on. I was on summer break and had family commitments the past 3 weeks. I’m so happy to finally be back and wipe the dust off the turntables!

Reach me Saturday night in the 103-FXD studio at 361-WFXD, that’s 361-9393 or email elmer@wfxd.com. Friend me on my GLR Facebook page here.

LISTEN – FULL SHOW – Elmer Aho brought you local artist Lane Dawson tunes on American Country Gold on 103-FXD – Saturday August 27th 2016.mp3

Recognized by the Michigan Association of Broadcasters – American Country Gold with Elmer Aho on 103-FXD and WFXD.com!
