The Rants and Ravings of a Rock and Roll Mind

Kincaid was fortunate enough to have friends with older siblings who introduced him to all things Rock in the late 70’s while he was still wet behind the ears and only slightly fuzzy. Instantly he knew that Rock was in his blood- a force that demanded a constant presence in his life and he strove to feed that need. Born under a lucky star, Kincaid was fortunate enough to be 18, 19, 20, 21 in Seattle in the late 80’s and early 90’s when it was the absolute epicenter of all things Rock. Shortly thereafter he made his way to Southern Oregon where he rediscovered a long dormant passion for radio broadcasting, and made it his life goal to make it his profession. It didn’t take long and in 1996 he landed a gig on a brand new Rock station and he did not leave for almost 20 years. Known as “The Voice of Rock in Southern Oregon” Kincaid had indelibly left his mark on that region, and determined it was time for a change (as the old song goes…) After scouring the length and breadth of the country, looking for the perfect station to be his new radio home, He landed here in Central Wisconsin on WGLX, and plans to stay here and to continue rocking for a very long time.

Kincaid is married to the love of his life- a woman who shares his passion for radio, and has somehow managed to stay somewhat sane while having 4 daughters. Outside of Rock- but never very far from it, he enjoys getting out and making a fool of himself on the golf course, camping, hiking and fishing, playing video games and reading voraciously the classics and rock and roll biographies. And beer. He really enjoys beer.

  • Aerosmith Bassist Brad Whitford says he doesn't know why the band is embarking on a farewell tour. Now, we could be all kinds of snarky and say "Because you're all old!" But at the same time, do we really want to see our heroes call it quits when they can still perform at a high level? Plus- how many bands have we seen go on a farewell tour only to continue making music and touring afterwards? (I'm looking right at you, KISS, Scorpions and Ozzy...) It almost seems like a rip-off when you go to see a farewell tour, and then that same band is on the road the next year. It almost seems like a sneaky marketing ploy to sell more tickets, if you ask me.

  • I spend my fair share of time on the interwebs, it's true. And sometimes- yes sometimes, it yields something pretty cool- like this!

  • We all have our favorite genres of Rock- and for me, it's always been metal. Now granted, today's metal is wayyyyyy different than the stuff I grew up on. That's why I'm so stoked some of my favorite bands are still doing it at such a high level- case in point- THIS. I cannot wait to see Maiden again, and this will be either the 6th or 7th time for me, because I know seeing these guys put on such an amazing show- it's gonna make me feel young again- if only for a couple of hours. http://ultimateclassicrock.com/iron-maiden-north-american-tour/

  • Checking in on a Monday here, after my team was knocked out of the playoffs. Such is life. Fortunately, we live in a state where the home team is still in it, and has always been my second favorite team, so I got that going for me, right?
