Johnny Rainchek

Johnny Rainchek earned his name when he was a young lad. It seems that he
was taken by this comely lass. Each time that he asked her for a date she
replied, "I'll take a raincheck." It dawned on Johnny to change his name to Rainchek.
Now a gentleman never gives out details, but he does have a sly smile whenever he
talks about her. When it comes to experience as a DJ, Johnny worked at WGMC for five
years on an hour and a half show called "Sunday Morning Bluegrass." It proved quite a
task working as a bluegrass musician, getting home at 7 a.m. sometimes &
starting up the station to run pre-recorded shows at 9 a.m. Something had to
give and unfortunately it was the radio show. Any musician will tell you that
performing is number one.
Johnny is glad to have the opportunity to work at WDYN.net playing his
favorite acoustic music and the music of his listeners. As always he'd like to
thank Dynamic Recording Studio for making it possible.
