What's going on with 6PM-8PM, Wednesday night, 2 hrs. Live Call-In "LET'S TALK RACING WITH JOE & RUTH KELLY" radio show on WARV (100.3) FM radio station tower in Richmond,Va. listening area??

Last 3 weeks - "Nothing Is Going On" - "No, LET'S TALK RACING Talk WITH JOE & RUTH KELLY"!!
The race fan listeners and JOE & RUTH KELLY are very disappointed in what is happening!!

There are plenty of excuses why "LET'S TALK RACING WITH JOE & RUTH KELLY" radio show on WARV (100.3) FM radio station tower in Richmond,Va. listening area. isn't "On The Air"??

WARV-FM (100.3) FM radio station and WBBT-FM (107.3) FM radio station are listed in the following "Wiki" article: WBBT-FM and WARV-FM are Classic Hits formatted broadcast radio stations licensed to Powhatan, Virginia and Petersburg, Virginia respectively. Both stations broadcast as one by simulcasting each other, allowing programming to be "in sync" on each station.

Both stations serve the Metro Richmond area. WBBT-FM and WARV-FM are owned and operated by Main Line Broadcasting.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WBBT-FM#107.3_FM

Solution: Is to put the 6PM-8PM, Wednesday night, 2 hrs. Live Call-In "LET'S TALK RACING WITH JOE & RUTH KELLY" radio show on WBBT-FM (107.3) FM radio station tower in Richmond,Va. listening area.

If WBBT-FM (107.3) FM radio station tower in Richmond,Va. listening area. do this.
The race fan listeners and JOE & RUTH KELLY happy!!
Mother and I would be very very happy!!
Sincerely yours,
Phyllis & Dennis Garrett
Richmond,Va.

Not having lived in Richmond or seen Joe or Ruth since 1999, I'm not sure what may be going on with their radio show(s). I do know that since the 60s, Richmond has been very fortunate to have Joe and his wife Ruth Kelly on both radio and tv (at times sharing a show with Eddie Anderson) to bring racing news. Joe is as much a racing historian as can be found in the Richmond area. Joe and Eddie many years ago used to work the P.A. at Southside Speedway and Brunswick/Lawrenceville, and of course Joe later promoted Southside Speedway. He has a wonderful collection of Richmond area racing photos dating to pre-NASCAR. I saw the other day where Joe will be one of the guests at the Occoneechee reunion and I sure look forward to seeing he and Ruth again. Back in the late 80s I got them both to join the National Motorsports Press Association where their radio shows have won numerous awards. I know their show(s), as well as Eddie Anderson's and their shared shows have been fluid over the years, starting on radio station WXGI and moving later to WTVR when Eddie was General Manager of both the radio and tv station. Let's hope they quickly get settled back in to a local Richmond station.  Nobody does a better job of bringing area racing news to the Richmond fan. I was fortunate over the years to appear on Joe & Ruth's Blab TV program, as well as their and Eddie's radio shows.

You made me remember one of my long ago put away souvenirs, which I was shocked to see is now 20 years old, a plaque sent to me by Joe & Ruth after appearing on one of their shows. Nobody does it better and they deserve all the recognition they get.

Dennis,

Saw these comments posted on a facebook page that may explain why Joe & Ruth have been off the air:

Lets Talk Racing with Joe, Ruth and Brendan Kelly. Okay, everyone, I'm sorry, but the Internet Server never got fixed at the tower. They keep calling, but the Service people haven't got there yet. We really miss talking to all of you.

Lets Talk Racing with Joe, Ruth and Brendan Kelly.
Sorry everyone about tonight. Unfortunately, we had no control over the tower. Lightening had struck it. Hopefully, they'll have us back on next week.
