The “Wake up Kickin’” morning show is hosted by Susan
Browning and Martin Duckett. Martin and Susan have been performing together
with their band, Turner Crossing, for seven years. They have co-produces
numerous stage shows in the Plainview area. They have worked in the recording
studio together to arrange, record, and produce 2 cd’s. Their close friendship
and long term working relationship have created a chemistry that is immediately
evident to the “Wake Up Kickin’” audience. Their sense of humor, their sarcasm
with one another, and their knowledge of music and musicians give their show a
very lighthearted, often comical, and yet informative feel.
Susan Browning is married to Plainview native, Hollis
Browning, and has two very active boys; Mason, a junior high student, athlete,
and band member; and Will, a very imaginative and talented sixth grader. Susan
was born and raised in Floydada, and has a “country girl” voice and attitude.
She is highly respected singer/performer on the South Plains, performing in
many venues including the “Sounds of West Texas Opry”, guest soloist for Plainview
Symphony, Boys Ranch Telethon performer, and on many other stages. She is an
active member of First Baptist Church, where she sings with the choir, the
worship team, and is a featured soloist. She is a member of the Plainview Lions
Club and the PEO study club. Her very active life is often the topic of
“discussions” on the morning show.
Martin Duckett is a Plainview native. Martin has been
involved in the local “music scene” for many years. He began playing the piano
for church and local bands in his early teen years. He attended both Plainview
High School and Wayland Baptist University where he was active in the music
programs. He has been called on for his
talent in musical arrangements and performance by many local groups and
organizations. He has been featured as a solo performer, an accompanist, and
arranger for many shows in the area; including, “Sounds of West Texas Opry”,
arranger for Plainview Symphony, Boys Ranch telethon, and many other stage
productions and shows. Martin is very active in First Baptist Church, where he
is the keyboard player, arranger, and band conductor. His overly organized life and schedule are
often the topic of “discussions” on the morning show.
Martin and Susan began hosting the show in May of 2012.
Prior to that, neither had ever even considered being “radio personalities”.
Susan’s experience as General Manager of Plainview Radio several years ago is
the only connection either had ever with radio. After the urging of several
local personalities, the pair accepted the position. While neither had “radio”
experience, both were well versed in stage performance and audience relations.
The duo fell very easily into the role of morning show hosts, and has developed
quite a following. Their easy, laid back style and their willingness to share
their “faults and flaws” with an audience make the morning show and
entertaining and often hilarious adventure for the listeners.
