Born in West Virginia, raised in Ohio, and a graduate of Sprayberry High School in Marietta, GA,

RIGGS has held music-related jobs for most of his life.  He worked at Turtle’s Records from 1983-1993, gathering a wealth of music & artist knowledge.  Upon graduating from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor’s Degree in English, RIGGS went to work full-time at WNGM Television in Athens. From then it was on, a life of beer, babes & rock-n-roll.  He thought playing rock on the radio would be a better gig than living in a teepee in the woods of Georgia, so to the beach he came, with nothing but a pair of shorts, flip-flops and a beat up Boombox with Metallica’s Greatest Hits.  He’s here on air weekdays from 3pm-7pm.  Call him, he gets lonely.  386-257-0324

Listen to Saturday Night Loud every Saturday from 9pm-Midnight.  He’ll crank it to “11” with stuff you’ll never hear during the week on the HOG.  From Buckcherry to Slipknot to Barry Manilow’s greatest hits!

Are you supposed to eat burgers “upside down”?

Christmas music is officially offensive?
