Arletta Van Hausen
Arletta Van Hausen was born in Yuba County, but moved to Yuba City as a youngster. She was adopted on Christmas Eve 1999 when she was just a couple months old, and moved in with Moe Howard. She thrived and grew to a size of 20 pounds on the healthiest cat food available. Oh, did we mention Arletta is a feline? She loves sleeping for many hours a day, but while awake will spend time with her very own flock of leghorn hens, whom refer to her as “The Cat.” Arletta is also a fan of Animal Planet, but will switch off her television when reruns of Lassie air. Arletta currently lives in the small town of Sutter, California, and has for years, been a big supporter of STAR 94 FM.

Karl Southcott here! I’m a giant movie fan, and love everything from the classic filmsto all the new exciting flicks. When I’m not in a movie theater I like to hang with my family, especially around water, I think I’m part fish. I have two small boys that keepme busy, let me tell you! One of my very favorite things is sharing music on the radiowith our listeners. I love everthing from Frank Sinatra to Bruno Mars. It’s such a kick!

I enjoy traveling, things that sparkle andmy partner, Chris Tyler. ***Chris Tyler here! I also have two kids, plus an awesome wife! I run marathons, but in real life I love to spend time at our neighborhood pool. And I’m a huge sports fan. It’s hard for me to choose a favorite type of music! I like many different types! Except maybe Gangsta Rap. I have to draw the line somewhere.
Fun loving Michael “The Giff” Gifford and his wife of over 20 years are nutty dog lovers(labs/lab mix) and his two daughters keep him scratching his head daily, especially now that one of them has given him his first grandchild. The family loves to travel and Giff is into golfing, hiking, camping… just about everything outdoors… except large animals that could eat him. His wife thinks he spends more time in the garden than he does with her, but she does enjoy the “fruits” of his labor.
Richard Stevens lives for quiet simplicity away from the constant barrage of noise and information-
overload. He grew up in North Dakota, where life moves at a slower pace, and radio signals seem to
go on forever, and finds satisfaction in entertaining listeners with insights, ideas… and a certain wacky perspective on life. Richard is married to his soulmate Amy and, to get her, they have three children. They enjoy long walks, yoga, movies, quirky television shows and enjoying time together at home.
