Dallas Observer: Where’s Greggo? In Wichita Falls. Sorta.

​I found Greg Williams. On the radio. Again. Sounding coherent, opionated and

refreshingly edgy. 

Sounding like, well, the Greggo you know and love.

“I’ve had to hook my delay back up,” says Williams’ new radio partner John Clay Wolfe. “This guy makes me want to cuss.”

Wolfe, who happens to host a snappy, savvy car show Saturday mornings on 105.3 The Fan, owns KSEY ESPN 1230, a 1,000-watt station based in Seymour but catering to Wichita Falls. For the last couple months he’s pondered and probed Williams about a radio comeback, the end result of which can be heard weekedays 4-6 right here.

Wolfe initially wanted Williams to move to Wichita Falls and run his station, but decided to move a studio to Fort Worth and put Greggo back on the air.

The plan is to polish The Show with John Clay and Greggo and then take it syndicated into Texas towns from Laredo to Lubbock, even to Albuquerque, New Mexico. For now The Show is heard in Wichita Falls and Amarillo.

“I’ve worked and been with him almost daily for two months and he hasn’t missed an appointment, hasn’t even been late,” Wolfe says. “His excitement has me excited.”

Hammer, as you remember, has a history. Way in the past with The Ticket and recently with Big Dick Hunter. For now Greggo is back spewing his unique, captivating brand of Cowboys and women and politics. At some point he’ll again address his demons.

“He wants this comeback and he’s completely humbled,” Wolfe says. “And, yes, he’s aware that he’ll have to piss in a cup to satisfy his skeptics the rest of his life.”

Fingers crossed.

    I used to see that big ass ESPN 1230 Monster Truck around the Falls. Is this going to be Greggo’s new driver? link- https://wolferadio11.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?action=edit&post=1148&message=1

    I’m still waiting for you to call me back, Hammer. I miss you and our tender embraces.

    Greggo, please tell those liberals to go Freddy Prinze themselves in a remote area.

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 9:49AM Neal says:
    Greggo’s the Robert Downey, Jr. of radio. Immensely talented and immensely flawed. Will this be his last relapse or will he need another class at the Darryl Strawberry School of Redemption and Forgiveness? Only time will tell.

    I wish I had a funny bit for these comments.

    I’d trade Greggo for Rhyner in a heartbeat.

    Come home Hammer. These boils aren’t going to lance themselves.

    That Big Dick appearance he made was probably not his audition tape.

    Can we fund an interview with the Wichita Falls chief of police?

    Ive got twenty bucks! Ahhh yes….

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 10:00AM Bradford’s broken shoulder says:
    Probably not Rhinosaur..good for Greggo..I’ll try to find it on my Iphone, I use Wunderradio cause Gordo said too…Stay Hard Hammer, and keep your nose clean jackass..you’re not in your twenties anymore..RW keep whipping his ass for an interview please sir..

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 10:01AM Bradford’s broken shoulder says:
    One other thing, How effing high does Hambonita look in that photo..? shakes head and walks back out of the Sportatorium…

    One more other thing: he’s aware that he’ll have to piss in a cup to satisfy his skeptics …funniest line of all time, this dude doesn’t know who he’s dealing with…Wolfe need to pee in the cup if he’s thinks Greggo has it all under control..hope he does, also hope that Coach PaPa has magically turned into Landry.

    Good Luck Greggo! If he stay’s clean he can make some pretty damn good coin if they can get on 10 to 20 radio markets in TX,OK,NM,AK.

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 10:14AM Gordon Keith says:
    Been listening….any irony that Greggo is back on a station that identifies itself as ‘Wolfe Radio”.

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 10:19AM Holme’s Burned Firecracker Leg says:
    At least I now have something to listen to this week in the afternoon instead of Rads and Bascik.

    It does crack me up that his signal is based out of freaking Seymour. About all that place is good for is wild hogs.

    Thanks RW for digging this up. Keep the pressure on Greggo for that follow up.

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 10:24AM The Wolfe says:
    Greggo is actually sounding somewhat like the old Hammer. This is a drydock stopdown. Trice up

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 10:32AM John Clay Wolfe says:

    Nice story Rich. We’ll be on today and Wed. Then back Monday at 4p for weekday gigs.

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 10:52AM Gordo says:
    Hey John Clay how about some Van Halen during breaks?

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 10:55AM eattrn says:
    You heard it here first, Greggo will be nationally syndicated within the next year and go on to become the biggest sports talk show in the world.

    Hearing it doesn’t make it so, but you heard it here first anyway.

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 11:03AM John Clay Wolfe says:
    good call. request lines are open, pre 5150 or post? personlly, I prefer DLR days (singing-not talk show) jwolfe@gowolfe.com

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 11:04AM Rooster says:
    Listening on my iPhone now. Sounds like old Greggo. Thank god they’re not pairing him with another East coast blowhard.

    Wondering when the first meltdown, er um, change in anti-depressant medication will come…

    Greggo-

    Can you get me some corn?

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 11:28AM Greggo sighting says:
    John…. Do you still have Greggo running cars for you during the week? Earning his keep, I guess….

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 11:34AM Bob Bland says:
    Glad Greggo’s back on the air, even though it is a more remote outpost than where Pappy O’Daniel’s Radio Hour is broadcast from.

    williams is an over-rated POS… he’s only half as knowledgeable as he thinks he is. i give him 2 months before he’s too high to do the show anymore.

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 11:49AM BSG says:
    Just heard him refer to the band “Bowling For Soup” as “horrible.” When advised they were from Wichita Falls, he said, “Well you can suck in Wichita Falls just like you can suck in Dallas.”

    Gawd, I miss him.

    Let the game come to you Greggo….let the game come to you! If Greggo can stay on track, maybe he can eventually get a gig back with Ticket. Let,s be honest here…that,s where he belongs!

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 12:21PM gofuhcureself says:
    LOTS of irony that he’s on Wolfe Radio. Pretty funny. I wish Greggo nothing but the best. I miss hearing him on the radio here. I’ll be listening online. To those predicting failure, all I have to say is that karma is a bitch. Watch yourself.

    John Clay Wolfe – any Van Halen is great, but definitely prefer DLR Van Halen.

    Stay hard, Greggo. Many people in the metroplex are still pulling for you.

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 12:23PM Wash’s ashtray says:
    Im glad Greggo is back on the airwaves but John Clay Wolfe doesnt know shit about sports.

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 12:28PM djs says:
    bring back motorcycle greggo.

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 12:45PM anticorb says:
    LOL! Get ready John Clay! Your about to be come the Jerry Jones on local sports radio! Some people gonna luv ya…some gonna hate ya. Hope ya got thick skin. It’s just part of the fun! Thanks for given Greggo a shot. …..er..but if Corby ever comes knockin….

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 12:47PM candyman says:
    He’s on right now. Talkin’ ’bout racist white christmas and stuff. Sounds like radio gold.

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 12:47PM Investor says:
    Hopefully Greggo has his life back together. As much as The Ticket plays his numerous drops and have the fake Greggo on, you would think he is already syndicated.

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 12:48PM John Clay Wolfe says:
    question: Is anyone having trouble with the iphone connection/AP, bc I can’t get mine to work? I have yesterdays show on loop, just talked to Greg, we’ll be on at 4 sharp. Trying to make sure this stream stays up with what will more than likely be a heavy bandwidth afternoon in DFW. Here’s the Iphone protocal

    IPhone instructions:
    1) Download the app “FStream“

    2) Once installed, press “favorites”, then press “edit”. Press the plus sign next to “Add new web radio”. The URL that you want to use is:

    also @ Wash’s ashtray: deez nuts

    @ John Clay Wolfe-

    Ha! That gave me a chuckle. A little sense of humor will go a long way.

    Seriously, I do wish you guys luck and Ill be tuning in at 4 to check it out.

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 1:27PM gofuhcureself says:
    It’s amazing the interest that doing a post about Greggo brings. Not even the Cowboys generates this many comments for you, Richie. You gotta love it.

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 1:51PM Rooster says:
    “williams is an over-rated POS… he’s only half as knowledgeable as he thinks he is. i give him 2 months before he’s too high to do the show anymore.”

    For the love of god Corby, give it a rest. There’s room enough for the both of you.

    FIRST!! ummm….

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 2:06PM anonymous says:
    I know John Clay, he’s a trip. Stay tuned, the playout of this ordeal will be highly entertaining in the least.

    Posted On: Tuesday, Dec. 29 2009 @ 2:16PM Rob Banks says:
    Greg Williams has never been coherent, edgy or insightful in any way. Williams played the fool or moron for everyone else at the station to make fun of. It wasn’t always an act apparently.

    That said, I would rather listen to him than Corby Davidson. I’m damning him with faint praise I know.

    Good luck, Greggo.
