Just Chillin’ with WYBB’s Matthew Potter

PotterPotter has always been a music guy, loved discovering new music, meshing it with old stuff…

By Beatrix Danko

I did some College Radio with a friend of mine. 3 semesters at WUSC (Home of the USC Gamecocks.) We were supposed to play music, but we ended up writing a bunch of skits and performing them for our drunk friends on air. They were the only ones listening. Our show was Tuesday nights 2am-4am, and we eventually got kicked off for a small fire we accidentally started that I’m pretty sure was not our fault, but not positive.

After college I traveled a bunch, when I ran out of money, I came home and got a job at WARQ in Columbia, solely because I was friends with the promotions director and they were in desperate need of someone to run the boards while everybody was out doing live remotes. No intentions at that point of getting into the industry.

I moved to Charleston in 2003 to run a restaurant/bar. Knowing I had no no intention of doing that for a living either, I walked into WYBB and WCOO with the hopes of landing a sales job. With no sales experience, they said “you need to quit playin’, and stop actin’ so crazy,” or something like that. Luckily, Mike Allen (the best Operations/Programmer guy in the biz) said, I need a weekend jock so I picked it up as my second job. Then people started listening to me, moved up the ranks, and here we are…..Head Trash Taker Outer….plus, I program our Active Rock and Triple A stations, while Managing Operations and playing loud rock n roll in the afternoons during my show, “Happy Hour w/ Potter.” (more…)
