Hi! I’m Graham Caddell…CFO Chief “FUN” Officer here on The Farm! If you’re reading my bio that means the TV Networks still haven’t called…lol.
Whatever platform you listen to us on, we appreciate your loyalty & friendship. I’ve been “farming” for so long here at WKSK, I can hardly remember writing this. Thank you Ashe County & the surrounding High Country for allowing us to do what we do.
Thank you too for supporting Independent Radio! #KeepItLocal

Being the "Moose" and a part of the "Farm" is a great joy for me! Thank you, our loyal listeners, for making that possible.
I enjoy doing anything outdoors... working, hunting fishing, shooting, cooking, and spending time with my family and pet pug Abner.
Thanks for listening. God bless!

I’m Nathan Roland and I have been the Program Director and Midday On-Air Personality at WKSK since 2002.
I love being part of The Farm family. Speaking of family, I’m married to Karen Roland and have one son, “little bird” Connor, and yep, one pet, a little Jack Russell Terrier named Lexie!!!
When I’m not on The Farm, you may see me on a local creek or river bank fishing which is my favorite hobby, love tearing up those trout! I also enjoy attending church, spending time with family and friends, interacting with our fine listeners, and sorry Carolina fans, I love Duke basketball!! Go Blue Devils!!
Thanks for listening!

TRAFFIC DIRECTOR….No, not as in road or air traffic. In the Radio world, Traffic Director is a close link with our Sales Department to schedule all advertising and promotions. I work with the sales “traffic” from the time it comes in the door until it is invoiced back out to the customer.
I have been part of the WKSK family for over 12 years. Outside of work, being a Mother, Grandmother, and soon to be Great Grandmother, fills my days.
Thanks for listening and letting us be a part of your life!!
