Some of the highlights of the Morning Show include:

  • WHAT THE FOTSCH?! – A show staple — crazy stories from around the world that Fotsch tries to make sense of why

J. Fotsch: I’ve worked in radio at Power 96.5 now for 17 years! I’ve been doing the morning show on Power 96.5 for 11 years.  I just got married to my beautiful wife Emily.  We have a dog “Cooperstown” (aka Cooper) and a cat named “George” (she says the cat was named after George Brett and I say he was named after George Kissell). Emily is a Royals fan and I’m a Cardinals fan… which makes for interesting baseball arguments… “West vs. East” of Missouri. I’m from St. Louis but have lived in Springfield since 1998 and graduated (barely) from Missouri State in 2001.  I’m also the “the on-field guy” (or as some people like to call me “the idiot with the microphone”) at the Springfield Cardinal games at Hammons Field for the last 11 seasons.
