    upward and onward (don’t look back)

  • Lynne Robinson

    Jay, while you will be missed here…because of who you are…this is what you HAVE to do! It only makes sense and speaks about who you are…and why we all love you so very much. You’ve been a big part of my every day for years now and I wish you and your family the best in this next chapter of your life journey. As a new Gramma, the time you’re giving your kids with their grandparents will be invaluable in their life. You know that you’re teaching them what (and who) is important by your actions and this lesson will stay with them for life.

    Sounds to me that “the little voice” was the Holy Spirit guiding you. It is just a good fit for all and what is meant to be.

    Thank you for all you’ve meant to us…your radio family and all the best to you and your family in the future. You’ll be missed!

  • Sue

    I love that you’ve been a voice of “moderation” on the airwaves here in Dallas. That’s me, a no-party moderate! The fact that you’re leaving to be near family for their sake, your sake and the kids’, is just the right thing to do. I’ll miss you, but wish you a fulfilling “change of life”. All the best, Sue.

  • Margaret

    I have thoroughly enjoyed your time with KRLD. You are a breathe of fresh air, and I know Salt Lake City will enjoy your
    show, too. You have made a good decision to follow the right path…not the easy one. Good luck to you and your family!

  • scott

    One less conservative talk show host in this market. How will we ever manage?

    • Curt

      Maybe Jay is conservative. But as a liberal I can tell you he had one of the most balanced set of views on radio. He would chew ideas on both sides — not lie, rant and rave like a lot of other conservatives. He will be missed.

      • Dena Dallas

        Hear! Hear, Curt! You are right. I appreciated Jay’s point of view AND the fact that he didn’t cram it down our throats. I, too, will miss him.

  • Mary Ochs

    Jay, of course I’m going to miss your show, I listen daily. This morning however, I overslept big time, and I’m so sorry that I missed the entire show. Had I been listening, I would have cried like I did when I went to the web site.
    You are such a dear person to listen so carefully to God’s calling and to act upon it. You will cherish those times with your Mom, and your children will thank you for it.
    Salt Lake City will be very happy you came to them. Maybe some time down the road we will be able to hear from you again. You’ve challenged my brain and most of the time I agreed with you. It has been very good for me to listen to all of the varied subjects you presented, and I enjoyed meeting you and Ernie at Central Market and other places around town.
    God be with you and your family and I pray for happiness for you and your entire family.

  • jana lucas

    I applaud your decision. Cherish the time you have with your Mom and family. This change will benefit you more than you can ever imagine. Hopefully someday you can come back to the Dallas area. You and Ernie were so great together. Best of luck!

  • Norm

    Jay, the day hasn’t been the same since you and Ernie split anyway. I feel the Holy Spirit is prompting you to do what is right for your family, so best of luck and keep preaching the Constitution.

  • Robert Harmon

    I liked the Ernie and Jay show. I work all day cleaning pools. I have nothing but the radio playing to keep sane. I work for a company but also have a small company cleaning pools on the side. I liked Ernie better than you because it was easier. I could take pools from my employer and make my company grow but I knew that not only was it not right but it was wrong. The steadfast way that you hold yourself made me strong. I also had a hard childhood. Beatings and a long list. I have been on my own since 15 I never let it be an excuse. I have never set eyes on my parents and will never. I identified with you because ever though I don’t always agree with you I always respected you. Keep the fatith for those of us that fight the good fight believe in God and the freedom this country once represented. Take care Jay I wish you and your family the best. Thanks for giving me something to think about everyday I listened that truely is a gift because most give nothing and and expect the world

  • Jerry P.

    Jay, I haven’t been able to listen to you every day because of my work. However, I tried to catch you and Ernie together whenever I could. I really appreciated listening to you because of your outlook on life, both for yourself and for the world. You did not preach Christianity over the air waves. However, your faith in God, as you were presenting your broadcasts, was apparent every day. I respected you, and still respect you, for that. Jay, as the apostle Paul said, keep up the good fight. Thank you so much for your inspiration to me and to hundreds of others around the DFW area. May God bless you and your entire family in this new direction. I hope you will let us Dallasites know from time to time how you and what you are doing.

    As an aside, I’m a dog behavior specialist. I especially enjoyed your references to Jubilee from time to time. Please take good care of that girl. If you have time, maybe you can check out my dog-behavior Web site:

    Jay, I wish you and your family all the best. Thanks for everything that you’ve done for me just over the airwaves.


    Jay, I never liked you by yourself after you and Ernie split up your show. Ernie can carry a solo show much better than you, one he has a more understandable voice. I do wish you all the best in your move and your new job. Best also to your family and to your mother. Thanks, J

    Jay, you are making the right decision. The lord lead you down this path to Salt Lake City. I had to make the same kind of decision a few years back due to my daughters health. I took a cut in pay and now work for my church. Its the best decision I ever made. And I did it due to Family comes First. My family and I will be praying for you and your family. God bless you and your family. God is good, god is good all the time!

  • Mike

    Sorry to see you go Jay. I hope everything is okay for you and your family.

  • Charlie Gallegos

    Best Wishes to U Jay. Will miss U in DFW. If U host a show in Salt Lake City, I’ll follow U on the Computer.

    Jay, today is 9-27-2010 my wife and I buried my mother in law after her 6 month cancer sickness and the loss of her husband on Dec 14th last year. We sincerely empathize with your situation as we just went through many years of my father in law being sick. We will pray for your mom that GOD will keep her comfortable and prepare her for her crown. We are starting a new museum in Fair Park called The Texas Museum Of Automotive History (} which will incorporate a Restoration Factory that will employee under priveleged children and teach them through a 2 to 4 year program how to restore cars and learn about business and assist them in scholarships and job placement. I was hoping to speak with you and incorporate the Dallas Can Academy in our program. Please email if you have time before you leave we would love to be a part of what you have done here in Dallas Texas. God Bless you and your family. Chuck

    Good riddance, you fluffy and glib loud mouth!!!!!! Now KRLD is back to a real class act!!!!

  • june coleman

    Jay, Go with God. Probably it was not an easy decison to make. In balancing all the needs of all of your family. For various reasons my kids did not have grandparents. I have four grandchildren and it has always been important to me to be a part of their lives. I have enjoyed every moment of everything we did togother. I pray that it will be a heart warming, enriching experience for all in your family………..I can perhaps, understand how your mother feels. She has probably, as much as any of us can, engineered her life and here when she has reached this spot on the plateau of this road, she wants to be able to still be the engineer. Having a husband with Parkinson’s and dementia who can no longer be his own engineer I can truly understand. I wish you and your loved ones love, peace, hope and yes, success. Sincerly, June

    So sorry to hear your leaving, you have my up most respect in “why” your leaving., Best of luck on the job, BUT, most of all enjoy your time with your Mom, My Heart and Prayers go out to both your Family, and most of all your Mom…you did the right thing.. A Fan, and Friend…

  • Kay

    Jay – we haven’t always agreed with each other and I figured something was up when you and Ernie weren’t doing the flip off/noon show anymore. None-the-less, I wish you God’s blessings and good luck. I think you are doing the right thing. It’s all about family!

  • MEP

    Had been away so did not know your news until went to website. We wish you, your family and extended family all of the best. So enjoyed your discussion and interaction with listeners about many issues. Best wishes and many blessings to you.

  • Kim

    Jay, you’re doing the right thing, although it was a tough decision. For me, Id have to say, if you’re ever back this way, stay a while. If there isn’t a spot for you at KRLD, someone will make room. I’m pretty sure a lot of people here in the DFW will definately miss you. Me included. I hope it all works out for the best and that little voice finally gives you a break.
