Layla Joins Wings 94.3!

By | Wings News | No Comments

Popular Auburn/Opelika radio personality Layla has returned to the local airwaves on Wings 94.3! Layla is the new midday host on Wings where she will entertain and inform listeners – along with play the greatest Classic Hits of all time – from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. every weekday, immediately following the Rewind at Nine with Al Mason.

Here’s some background information on Layla:

From the moment her parents gave her the names Layla (from Derek and the Dominoes) and Michelle (from the Beatles), they unwittingly doomed their poor daughter to a life of obsessively studying rock & roll –and dominating trivia night at the local bar. As a child raised on the Fab Four, Zeppelin, and the Stones, young Layla’s musical tastes differed significantly from that of her schoolmates – but that’s okay, New Kids on the Block sucked, anyway. After graduating from Auburn University, she tried her hand at being a legitimate journalist in the TV news biz, but the siren’s melodic call was simply too strong; it beckoned to her like a flame to a moth, and she soon conceded that a life of hanging backstage with rock stars was infinitely superior to chasing tornadoes and covering city council meetings. It was a choice she has never regretted. Layla is a doting wife, the exhausted mother of two rambunctious little boys, and the owner of two sweet dogs who constantly beg to go out only to scratch at the door to be let right back in.
