Hi, I'm Ruthie "Mad Dog" Hart, your Queen of the Midday
I have the pleasure of taking you through your work day with the best rock music ever. Thank you for that opportunity.
Born and raised in St. Louis, I was a "starving artist" performing in local and regional theatre, dinner theatre, television and radio commercials along with modeling. Moving to Sedalia, in 2004, I worked with my husband Gerald in his photography studio until he "retired".
I wasn't ready to retire yet so, here I am hanging out with you every day.
I enjoy my life with my husband, our children and two cats. I'm into bird watching, fishing, paddling, wine and working out.
Favorite artists: Beatles, Rolling Stones (my first concert), John Mellencamp, Billy Joel, Monet Degas and Van Gogh.
Favorite quote: "Better keep yourself clean and bright. You are the window through which you must see the world." -George Bernard Shaw
Favorite books: Chronicles of Narnia and anything by Hemingway
Some things I still want to do: Play the harp and paint with watercolors
I used to be confused with Freddie Prinze ("Chico and the Man") when I was younger.
My favorite quote: "Some folks are wise, some otherwise."
The last TV show that choked me up was "The Rifleman."
The first thing I bought with my own money was a 1961 Ford A picture is worth a thousand words, just look at Ruthie.
I started in radio in 1977 at KBBI in Homer Alaska after our rock band produced the station jingles. I did a big band show as a volunteer then moved back to Oklahoma and started to work at KOTV as a master control operator and voice over talent for the station for the next 13 years before moving to Missouri and working for Benne Media at Mix 92.7.
I attended Columbia College and then was offered a position at KDRO AM.
I then moved to West Virginia to create a station for Bob Denver (Gilligan).
I stayed there until I returned to Sedalia to do mornings at KDRO, a position I still occupy while rocking you on the "Night Train" at Power 97.7
