Braden Smith

Ramblin's from the guy you hear on the radio!

Hey it's Braden, catch up with me weekday afternoons from 3pm-7pm. We'll talk country music, country people, life in Fredericksburg, fun stuff, traffic, and weather. Plus I always have tons of FREE stuff to giveaway. See you then!

A little about me... I grew up in Maryland, so bring on the crab cakes and football anytime! GO RAVENS! I started in broadcasting when I was in high school. But I didn't start out in radio... my first broadcasting job was as a weatherman on a local cable station. I spent almost 5 years bouncing around to a couple tv stations, and it eventually landed me in Fredericksburg. I was even offered a job one time at a CBS station! I always had a passion for weather, so it was a great career for me. I was one of the National Weather Service's youngest weather spotters and members of their Storm Survey Team. I studied Broadcast Meterology at Mississippi State University. So how did I get into radio? I started working part-time at Thunder 104.5 on the weekends when I moved to Fredericksburg. When I had a chance to make it a full-time career, I couldn't pass it up! My radio journey has been more fun than I ever imagined. And I have had the chance to do some amazing things and meet some amazing people. And it only keeps getting better!

Wacko Wire: No Bath... EVER!

Living a clean life just isn’t for him. An 80-year-old Iranian man has gone 60 years without bathing!

Amou Haji believes cleaning himself will bring sickness, so he forgoes soap and water. His eccentricities don’t end there! Haji’s favorite food is rotten porcupine and he enjoys smoking a pipe packed with animal feces. He wears rags for clothes and, in the winter, a war helmet to keep warm. When he needs to trim his hair, he burns it in fire. But while it may seem strange – and profoundly unhygienic - Haji says he’s happy with his lifestyle, so who are we to judge? We just wouldn’t want to smell him!
