A Decade In The Making. Open Road Radio Turns 12.

If the Internet consisted of real brick and mortar buildings there would be a construction boom going on right now like the world has never seen. The Internet is not in a recession or on the road to a depression, rather it is experiencing an economic and social explosion of activity. Celebrating 12 years cruising the airwaves Open Road Radio invited me to talk about this phenomenon and the reasons why my Blog was so successful. Joined me on the air was Keith Ball, Christen Clayton and Amanda Richardson. You can listen to this discussion by going to “Motorcycles Most Popular Websites”. (as you will find out I have an accent for radio…). You can tune into Open Road Radio each week from 11a-12p on 9 FM: 92.5, 92.7 & 99.9 or streamed live at Open Road Radio.

    Gina and her crew do a real good job and are a definate asset to motorcycling.
    I had the pleasure of finally actually meeting her in Milwaukee during Harleys 105th Anniversary while cover the women motorcyclist assembling a bike for charity. We have since stayed in touch and I have been on the show a few times.
    I recommend her show to all.

    Congrats to you, your crew and Open Road Radio! Talk about having cred…you are one of the only people I know (male or female) who deadheads Chicago to Sturgis on 2 wheels (on a hardtail no less!).

    Congrats to Open Road Radio on 12 years of hard work. Gina and the whole Crew is great to work with I have enjoyed taking part in the AWBB and always have a great time, Ideal Dave and Dozer are 2 very hard working, wicked funny talented radio personalities. The crowd loves these guys! Keep up the hard work everyone!

    Hey Gina

    Gina Woods and ORR Crew – Happy 12 Big Ones — You Are the BEST! It seems like just yesterday ORR hit the airwaves. A Motorcycle (Radio) Talk Show was not only long overdue — but the fact that a Female Motorcyclist started it makes it even more Awesome! You’ve accomplished a lot of Firsts Gina – including your All-Ladies Bike Builds – and I’m sure you have many more surprises for us down the road. I love listening to ORR and I also love occasionally co-hosting the show! It’s a Blast … the time flies by and no matter what the topic it’s always informative, funny, interesting and I often walk away (ride away – in better weather) learning something new! I even enjoy calling in from my “library stops” when I’m on the road! Thanks for your dedication and hard work in spreading the joy of riding via radio airwaves.

    Gina – Happy Anniversary!
    You are amazing, insightful, entertaining, brilliant and talented. Of course you’re a success.
    Keep doing what you do, Baby! We love you!

    Wow! 12 years already! Happy Birthday Open Road Radio! There is not a better place for tips and advice on motorcycling! I love the fact your station promotes women in motorcycling! Thanks again and keep up the great work!

  15. 15 Paws Jan 21st, 2009 at 5:03 pm

    Congrats on 12 years!!! Been to long looking forward to seeing Gina and Dave soon!

  16. 16 Ken Jan 21st, 2009 at 6:03 pm

    Hey Gina,

    Cracking a beer open to you and the crew now. 12 years. Wow.

    It’s people like Gina, the crew and the support of those that listen every week that help make the bike community tighter and tighter every day. There are ‘ those that pose ‘ and then there’s the folks at Open Road Radio.

    Keep up the great work and let me know if there is anything I can help out with sometime. It’d be my pleasure.

    Iv’e been listening since the beginning,Gina and hope your show last’s forever.
    Now that I’m in Florida ,I can’t hear the show every week.I willbe in Daytona for bike week, maybe we can get together then. Again good luck to the ONLY show that really gives all aspects of motorcycling every week for the last 12 years.

  18. 18 d0lyn Jan 21st, 2009 at 11:46 pm

    I just have to say your show is what gets me up and out of bed (at least to turn on the radio) on Sunday Morn! My son and I have been listening for quite some time. I love everything your guests bring to the table…my favorite, hands down (you know who you are) Ideal Dave 🙂 the connoisseur of choppers!! Anyway love the show; you all do a great job of keeping me hooked and wanting more:)

  19. 19 Mike from Michigan Jan 22nd, 2009 at 6:08 am

    Congratulations. I especially like Ideal Dave!!

  20. 20 Ryan T. Jan 22nd, 2009 at 9:51 am

    Congrats on the 12 years! Love the show and all of your personalities, especially Ideal Dave!! Keep up the good work.

  21. 21 Greeksterlove Jan 22nd, 2009 at 11:22 am

    Congrats Gina, Dave & Dozer! I can’t believe it’s been 12 years already. I listen every Sunday on my drive in and I gotta say Ideal Dave is hilarious! ideal Dave makes my hour drive in feel like 5 minutes, keep up the great work and I look forward to the next 12 years!

    Peace out

    Gina congratulations on the decade sister. Met you a long time ago- you might not remember as I am sure you met so many, You did a good thing Gina – I know you questioned it and had many trials and tribulations over keeping the pace..being a one manned band isn’t always the easiest, but you have proved thru time how durable you really are and that you and you alone, not this wonderfully funny Dave nor Dozer as they just sit beside you, but that you through the months of knocking on doors for advertising dollars has come full circle.

    I know this through friends we share that its been a tough road for you and you really have prevailled. Without blowing to much wind up your skirt – you have one on no?…I just want to say you started something you believed in and never turned back..Rock on sister..you are the true purveyor of MOTORCYCLE TALK RADIO. Be loud & be proud you are a true pioneer..do I smell a Motorcycle Hall of Fame nomination?

  24. 24 Oddo Jan 23rd, 2009 at 1:08 pm

    Happy 12th Birthday! You should all be so proud of the fabulous success of the show and events ~ Congratulations!!
