Since the early 80’s Ace Cosby has been a staple in the lives of many rock and roll radio fans. He dominated the airwaves in central Indiana for over 30 years.

Not only was he an amazing radio air personality, music director and assistant program director he was a great friend to many of the classic rock bands of the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s. Including; Kiss, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, Sammy Hagar, Quiet Riot, Styx and so many more. And on top of all that he has been one of my dearest friends.

Not only did he help me get my job at WFBQ (which led me eventually to Bob and Tom) but we have shared more adventures than should be allowed in a lifetime. Like the time we went to the Playboy Club in Lansing Michigan with Kiss members, Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley and Bruce Kulick. Or when I played house mom to Ace Cosby and Off Your Rocker the band that would practice in my basement and infuriate all of my neighbors. Twice drawing a visit from the police.

But the more interesting stories are all Ace’s. Learn who is the nicest guy or gal in rock and roll. Find out how Ace broke into the radio business. His encounter with Michael Bolton that in a way actually effected my life. His “date” with a Playboy playmate that came back to haunt him later in life. The almost proposal involving a Jon Bon Jovi concert in Atlanta.

Find out what it is like to hang with the Jack Blades of Nightranger and Tommy Shaw of Styx. And then to have your whole world come crashing down with a massive corporate radio house cleaning.

Ace has lived quite the life and thanks to Tom of The Bob and Tom Show (who makes a brief appearance on this podcast) he is back for round two. Ace is the definition of a legend and we are damn happy to have him back on the air where he belongs!

    Thank you so much for letting me sit on the couch and listen to a couple of great friends reminisce. I’m glad you’re back Ace!

    I loved this podcast! I remember listening to WNAP and KISS99 in the late 70’s and early 80’s. I also remember when Kristi moved to Albuquerque and I believe someone named Libby took her place! Ace Cosby is the ultimate jock!
