From this day forward, “CABO WABO LIVE,” will become a daily live show and the remaining 18 hours of programming will be a non-stop, high-energy party. Woody Nelson – the co-founder of CABO WABO RADIO – is the host of CABO WABO LIVE. Many celebrity guests are already lining up for the party.

CABO WABO RADIO will be available at many levels for your station and they invite you to experience the next generation of Radio Programming. Their primary demographic target is 18 – 49 years old. Its psychographic target is “young people of any age who enjoy feel-good, party energy.”
To further enhance the energy level of the already great product Woody and Shadoe asked themselves what would be the best way to give the station personality in the time that it is to run jockless and to further enhance the listening experience during live content. They reviewed hundreds of potential candidates to breathe life into the station and collectively concluded there was only one voice that could achieve the high standard which the station had set for itself. That voice is now the station voice of internationally renowned voice over aficionado Pat Garrett of Pat Garrett Creative. "We are honored to have Pat's involvement in this venture and Pat will help us make radio history", says Woody Nelson.
