Tim Daugherty

staff tim homeTim Daugherty has played a variety of roles with WONE since the very first day it was on the air. A member of the original staff, he has been heard on every shift around the clock; morning, noon, and nights, even overnights!

These days, Tim is the guy to turn to for a rockin' ride home after a hard day at work. Tune him in weekdays from 2-7pm.  

The Rock & Roll Authority as he's been called, (and not just because Daugherty and Authority rhyme so well), is known to drop in weird and little known factoids about almost everything rock-related under the sun. Tune in and see for yourself.

Is Morgan Freeman Really Jimi Hendrix?

Written by
Don't you love a good conspiracy theory? Especially the ones wherein notable people fake their death only to "resurrect" years later. Remember when a long-dead Elvis Presley was discovered working at a Burger King in Kalamazoo, Michigan? Yeah, that was a Whopper so to speak! And did Jim Morrison really…

My Black Dog Blog

Written by
I found out that today is National Black Dog Day. Kinzbach & Co. told me so then they played "Black Dog" by Led Zeppelin, (but I don't think the day is set aside for that song, though). I knew right away what my blog was going to be about today;…

Written by
I was saddened to read this news today. Rob Garrison has died at 59. His is not a household name but I'll bet you remember him from the 1984 film "The Karate Kid." He played Tommy, the Cobra Kai member famous for the line, "Get him a body bag! Yeah!"…

Get On Your Bikes & Ride!

Written by
If you sang that part of the Queen song when you saw the title of this blog, it was fully intended. That's what I was thinking when I actually rode my bike to work today. Now that's a bike as in bi-cycle! The last time I did that was in…

Pride of Cleveland Past

Written by
I recently came across this newly enhanced version of the old Raspberries' song, "I Wanna Be With You." Man, it's a tasty little Raspberry treat! Growing up in the 1960s Cleveland, there was a lot of reasons to love the Raspberries! They were local guys who had a rockin' delivery…

2016 All Over Again? Let's Hope Not!

Written by
With the deaths of Eddie Money and now Ric Ocasek, we've lost two classic rockers in less than a week. It put me in mind of three years ago when the deaths of rockers were coming at an alarming rate. One day following the funeral of Lemmy Kilmister from Motorhead…

The Money Man & Me

Written by
There are probably countless DJ's like me across the country who have a photo like this. I pulled it out today after hearing the news that Eddie Money had died. He was 70. He played the self promotion game better than most. When he came to town, he'd call the…
