Mario Garcia

I like putting a smile on my listeners’ faces as they drive home, so I keep things upbeat, funny and informative, whether I’m telling you about different events in our community, introducing a great concert, or hosting a charity fundraiser. It’s gratifying being able to touch people with something I say on air or do at an event. In my spare time I enjoy the outdoors, traveling, movies, football and grilling out. I love just chilling out with my wife, kids or my three beautiful grandchildren who call me Papa G. Radio has changed a lot since I began working weekends on KOSY 790 AM when I was 16 years old, but it has been very good to me and it is something I’ve wanted to do since I was a little boy. I’m just blessed I’ve been able to do it all these years.

Mario’s Weekend Movie Roundup [VIDEO]

Okay, I made a mistake last weekend saying "The Longest Ride" was in theaters but it is actually this weekend when the movie hits the theaters. This is the perfect date night movie because it has romance for the ladies but some bad to the bone bullriding for the guys. The movie, based on a best-selling novel, "The Longest Ride" stars Scott Eastwood (Clint Eastwood's son) in his first major starring role. So grab the popcorn and I'll see you at the movies!
