The Live Ride with Marty McFly, the two hour radio show hosted by 25 year country radio veteran Marty McFly, brings a weekly “concert” to country radio featuring live performances of current and recent chart hits by today’s biggest acts. As a Nashville insider, McFly provides the most up-to-date country news, concert information and artist interviews along with the perfect soundtrack for country radio listeners to relive their favorite country concert experiences! McFly is joined on the show by his partner of 11 years, Big Stew.
McFly got his start in radio in 1985, when a close friend told him of an easy way to make money…radio! At the same time, Michael J. Fox was playing a character with a similar name in the major motion picture called “Back to the Future.” Coincidence? The four-time “CMA Air Personality of the Year” nominee and three-time “ACM Air Personality of the Year” nominee has helped his stations win a combined nine CMA/ACM “Station of the Year” awards! He has also been nominated for Billboard Magazine’s “Air Personality of the Year” in 1996 and Bobby Poe Magazine’s “Large Market Air Personality of the Year” in 1993. Based in Nashville, McFly wakes up the city each day as the morning personality for WKDF-FM while continuing his search for an affordable method of time travel.
