He's one of the few folks in Louisville who is easily identifiable by one name - Coyote.

Coyote Calhoun, archival photo Coyote Calhoun has been introducing new music to River City radio listeners for nearly 40 years. We talk to Coyote about his Louisville life - including making the switch from WAKY rock radio to WAMZ country, and how he's crafted a public persona that's drawn fans in five decades.

Coyote grew up in Muskogee, Oklahoma, where his deejay and radio executive father bought a station.

His subsequent foray into radio has taken him many places, including Mobile, Alabama, Wichita, Kansas and Knoxville, Tennessee.

Calhoun came to Louisville in 1973.
