Joe Headley

staff tim homeJoe is an enthusiastic young talent in radio who is living the dream as a personality on his favorite station, WQMX! Joe got his start in college serving as the Production Director for the University of Akron's Z88, and his love for live and local radio has since skyrocketed. He was brought on as an intern for RCRG in 2022 working as a weekend jock and member of the street team in promotions until landing the overnight position on WQMX.

Joe is a lifelong local to the Akron/Canton area. Outside of the studio, he has a love for boating, fishing, disc golf, and off-roading. He is the proud owner of a classic American muscle car, and the toughest decision he faces on a sunny day is whether to drive his Chevy or ride his motorcycle. Fun fact: Joe LOVES grape flavor.
 
Joe strives to make a connection with his audience and is authentically himself in any setting. Country music holds a special place in his heart, and he relishes being at concerts and community events engaging with listeners and having a great time!

Love to see it!

Written by
I'm a big fan of radio station memorabilia, especially when it comes to WQMX. (Go figure!) Old shirts, stickers, and logos are just the coolest things to me. They're remnants of a time past, and I often wonder if the station branded items I keep and the work I do under these call letters will weave into that history as well. To be that guy in those dated photos, to have driven that old WQMX…

Mowin' Man

Written by
As my lawn turned from grass to jungle, I knew I couldn't put off mowing much longer. I closed my eyes to it through the weekend, but with the beautiful weather we had to start off this work week on Monday, I broke down and got it done.  I've been searching and searching for a cheap lawn tractor upon which I could cut the grass, but nothing has come up yet. I'm willing to put…

Pleasant Sunday

Written by
I had a nice weekend and I hope you did too! Sunday was an especially good day. It started off with a pot of coffee and some awesome homemade breakfast. The weather was nice, so my fiancée and I decided to go on a walk through the park.  I wanted to check out the Freedom Trail near the Tallmadge Circle, but Mackenzie wasn't feeling it, so we visited Goodyear Heights Metro Park instead. We took…

Not Everyone Gets A Trophy

Written by
It's a lesson we all learn at some point in our youth. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. Maybe it's more one way than the other for some, but we all get a taste for both. As Syndrome says in The Incredibles, "When everyone's super, no one will be."  That is to say, there's hardly a winner if nobody loses. If everyone gets a ribbon, an invitation, a trophy- well then that makes things a…

My Top Ten: Arcade Games

Written by
I wasn't around during the heyday for arcades in the 80's, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate a quality machine. From side scrollers to ball rollers, there's countless hours of fun to be had playing arcade games, and despite the incredible advances in home gaming, somehow the classics still hold up.  The fun an arcade game delivers may have something to do with the fact that you're playing in front of public eyes and…

Stay Safe Out There

I wanted to drop a quick reminder here for you to keep safe on this Eclipse day. Enjoy this rare ocasion to the fullest, but don't forget to be careful.  First and foremost, this means you need the proper eye protection from the sun. You already know about that, but I wanted to go a step further to assure you that not every welding mask is sufficent and you'll have to do research to determine…

My Top Ten: Driving Pet Peeves

Written by
Driving... It's one of the most fun and rewarding things to do for a car lover like me, but at times, it can be the worst. There's those drivers out there that make us scratch our heads as to how exactly they acquired a license. Road rage, accidents, and traffic all stem from these careless, negligent people behind the wheel and the situations they create. It can make you want to rip your hair out! …
