The Terry Evans Show, with Pete Potipcoe
Mornings: 5:30am – 9:00am
As I approach my 33rd anniversary in this city I’m more and more grateful to have spent this time in Edmonton-from being a snot nosed 21 year old-to raising a family and seeing my kids off into adulthood and now looking at an empty nest with my wife, Jodie. I’m very fortunate to receive the support from K-97 Listeners every day and I thank you very much for that support!
Growth is important because if we are not growing-We are standing still! Changes can be a challenge at times but you have welcomed the recent adjustments at K-97 and I look forward moving ahead especially with my new partner, Pete Potipcoe, on the show. He’s a funny little dude with a big heart and wants to immerse himself in the community and all things Edmonton just as he did in The Mac.
K-97 has been a part of the fabric of Edmonton for the better part of 40 years! YOU have been a huge part of it and you are very important to me! Thanks for listening! I hope you tell your friends to do the same! Pete and I look forward to talking to you on the show in the near future!
I grew up on the streets of Cambridge Ontario. At the age of 9, my parents left me in a Dodge Dynasty while we were on vacation and never came back. I spent that summer camping in the woods and playing games by myself living off discarded food left behind from tourists in campsites. While it sounds horrible I really had a great time. Eventually, I was picked up by child services and bounced between many foster homes. It was hell, and often I would run away. All I wanted in life was a cool car and to feel like I belonged somewhere.
I eventually met a good friend and we tried to start a number of failed businesses, I really thought after we found that pristine Shop-Vac wet/dry vacuum we would have made it big in the business world. In hindsight maybe our company slogan wasn’t the best “Give us a call and we’ll suck you clean and dry.” We got lots of calls but none for at home vacuuming.
Anyway, after that, I ended up becoming a janitor at a radio station and one day they needed a story so they put me on air and I told them everything about me. It blasted me into stardom and I met the love of my life from many years back and we got married and had kids.
So there you have it, that’s my bio. I hate doing these things and my boss made me write one but I doubt he will read it so if you’re actually still reading this I made this up and stole half the plot from Joe Dirt.
Goals: “To be successful enough to wear jogging pants to work and nobody can say a damn thing”
Accomplishments: “I once had a McDonald’s platinum card that staff get to save you 50% off. I didn’t even work there.”
Education: “I can’t spell, I lit a science room ceiling on fire, I nearly cut my finger off in shop class and I failed a college class three times in a row while in radio broadcasting. Somehow I still have to post-secondary diplomas“
