Allen "The Moose Man" Moos

Allen MoosI started my broadcast career just down the road at KHDN-AM while going to High School in Hardin.  I left the herd on graduation from High School.   I have never wanted to leave Big Sky Country other than to vacation occasionally or to go to school which I did when I attended Brown Institute in Minneapolis to study further Radio and Television Broadcasting and to gain my 1st Class in Electronics. I also met Kurt Anthony while attending school. Herman Elanbaas, the owner of KURL in Billings was my roommate as we furthered our education. I grew up listening to Wolfman Jack, Johnny Dark at KOMA, Major Dan Miller, Craig Finley and Carl Mann at KOOK Radio. KOOK Radio in Billings is where I started my broadcast career in Billings in 1973, where I stayed, for the most part, until 1986. I joined Meyer Broadcasting’s Y*93 in 1987 where I worked in advertsing sales and, eventually, back on the air with Kurt Anthony on the Morning Show. Our morning show earned “Broadcaster of the Year” from the Montana Broadcaster’s Association. I left broadcasting in September of 2009, disillusioned with the direction that corporate radio had taken the industry. I’ll share more on this later. I have worked in virtually every aspect of radio over the 40 years that I have been involved in this business. Music Director, Program Director, Sales Manager. I have had the privilege to work with many talented people in broadcasting over the years and broaden my knowledge of the business. I have also been credited with additional education as a graduate of the Radio Marketing Master Course from the Radio Association of Broadcasters and additional honors including Radio Salesperson of the Year, Sales, Commercial Production and Copy Writing in the E.B.Craney awards through the Montana Broadcaster’s Association over the years. The biggest honor that I have received comes with the opportunity to be a part of the lives of those in this area on a daily basis, share my experiences, share the listeners experience while adding a little of my personality in hopes that each day has a little additional sunshine in this beautiful country that we live in. I have worked with some of the most talented broadcasters in the country, most have gone on to other markets, but many names remain and I’m happy to say that a lot of those people are now a part of Mojo 92 5. I told you that I would share more on the topic of leaving radio as a career in 2009. I have always had a passion for radio, but felt that each time company ownership of large radio groups took place, even more life and energy was lost through downsizing and sharing of talent on multiple frequencies in the marketplace. This in itself meant that many involved lost their “Mojo”. Narrow playlists also meant boredom for the listener in my opinion. We have turned back the clock a bit and given new life to older radio where live personalities were able to interact with the listener. For the most part, Mojo 92 5 plays more music, has more live personalities on the air and, I guarantee you, has more fun than any other station in this market.   For those that choose to play the game the “New Way”, I wish you luck and prosperity. I have many talented friends in large station groups, but I’ve gained my “Mojo” back and can wakeup in the morning knowing that I’m going to have a good day. In this case, I am happy to say that,”My past IS my future” only now I am surrounded by others that have the same dream, both at work and at home. It’s a nice play to be.
