Brent Carter and Ash Wade were thousands of miles apart when they were growing up. Ash Wade was in Canada, and Brent Carter Victoria TX was in the United States. They both played sports and remained sports junkies. Their work resulted in a satisfying friendship. They used their lunches as sounding sessions and solved a lot of the world’s problems while enjoying a glass of half and half tea and a plate of Tex-Mex.
Brent Carter had a slightly demented following after hammering the local media for their inaccuracies and inconsistencies. Many people thought the pair should have a radio show. They did not realize the idea had been discussed for a year and it happened very quickly. Once the founding sponsors of Wendt Electrical, the VeraCruz Restaurant, the Empire Lodge, and CivilCorp/The Office decided they liked the concept the two men were on the air. Both Ash Wade from Canada and Brent Carter Victoria TX have day jobs but have fun and enjoy giving back to Victoria.
