It was because of an out of the ordinary event on Valentine's Day 1995 that I met my wife Sahara. My boss at the time was always looking for ways to spread the word about WGRR and he decided to hold a "Have a date with Rockin' Ron" contest (because all the other DJs were either married or dating). I begged and pleaded with him to come up with some other idea for promotion for the radio station but he wouldn't give in. That night, our evening DJ took calls from listeners interested in a date with me. He called me at home with his suggestions on who I should go out with. I finally chose a woman from Montgomery named Robin (after all, it seemed fitting that Rockin' Ron should have a date with Rockin' Robin!). The next day during my radio show, Sahara called me on the request line and asked if I had found someone. I told her I had a date with Rockin' Robin. She told me she tried to get through on the phone but the line was always busy. We talked a bit and a few days later she won a prize and came to the radio station to pick it up. I met her and we began dating.
Even though I had begun a relationship with Sahara, I kept my promise and went on a date with Rockin' Robin. A limo picked us up and we enjoyed dinner together. We had a wonderful time but my true Valentine was Sahara. This fall we'll celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary.
I hope you and your sweetheart have a GRReat Valentine's Day!
