Let Darlas Rai help you get through the day with the most rock here on Rock 93-7 every weekday, 10am-2pm.
Darlas Rai was born and raised in the beautiful Pacific Northwest in Oregon. She grew up camping, fly-fishing and hunting with her large family.
After living in Las Vegas for 7 years, she and her husband decided to get out of the city with the kids and moved to Tennessee in 2006. She has two SETS of twins and thinks the move to the South was the best decision they ever made for their family.
She grew up in the 80’s and has seen more ROCK concerts than she can remember. Being one of those “annoying kids” that called radio stations every night she won her first concert tix in 1982 to see The Tubes, then tix to Oregon Jam ’83. THAT’S when she decided she was going to “talk on the radio and play music every day”…she has been doing that now for over 20 years.
What’s in your CD player or on your personal playlist right now?
PINK! Love her.
What’s your favorite movie?
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Wizard Of Oz and Grease. Love the old movies from that era.
What do you watch on T.V.?
I am a court TV junky during the day. NO soaps for me. And I have to admit I watch a LOT of reality TV. A guilty pleasure for sure.
Where are you most likely to be spotted around Cookeville?
At the radio station or outdoors with the kids, more than likely a sporting event.
What are your top three favorite foods?
Hashbrowns and eggs, Chinese Food and Seafood. (Not in that order)
You’re going to the movies. What are you getting at the concession stand?
XL Popcorn and a Coke Zero. (& the candy stashed in my purse from the store)
Do you have pets?
Yes. We just lost my beloved dog Pongo, had her 14 years. Still recovering from that. And Smokey Cat (a rescue and an awesome cat)
What made you want to work in radio?
Calling the radio station every night for years (as a kid) and winning tickets to concerts and getting ON the radio as a winner.
What was your first job?
Babysitting. That’s what you do when you have a lot of older siblings. You babysit.
Can you picture yourself with a different career, if so – what?
No. I have often thought of that and can only imagine myself on the air. Maybe a teacher. With all the kids I have and all that I have “helped” raise over the years, that would probably make the most sense. WAIT! Maybe a tour bus driver. I drive a suburban with screaming kids, can’t be THAT much different driving a tour bus with “bratty” Rock stars. Ha!
