They have 5 children, 4 grand-kids, and a couple of tanks of Guppy and Betta fish for pets.

David H. CombsDavid Combs: Saturday Afternoon/Sunday Host

David is a 'young' old-timer.  He has been in radio since 1979, when he started as a volunteer for Family Life Radio in Phoenix.  He currently works in Sales and on-air for a secular station with some connection to KJOL.  He has been an avid Christian Radio "user," since he became a Christian at age 15.  He has 4 kids and 3 grandsons living in Colorado and Arizona.  When he's not working, or traveling to see family, he's playing drums for the downtown Vineyard, or playing guitar and leading worship for a small group at church.  He also plays some piano, writes songs, loves to Ski, go on long walks, ride his big motorcycle, water ski, go to drag races, watch the Rockies, add songs to his Ipod (he's at 9,500), and go to movies to enjoy and critique.  One of his all-time favorite things to do is make friends and family laugh.


Joyce LabigJoyce Labig: Secretary/Receptionist

Joyce has been married to Bob since 1968. They have 3 children: Paul, Rob, and Rhonda (Yes, the former KJOL Rhonda).  They have 9 grand children who all live close. When Joyce is not at the station, she enjoys hanging out with all the "munchkins." Grand kids are the greatest!  You might see her annually at Juco or at a musical concert somewhere in the valley. She loves the Broncos and helping her husband with services at the Atrium each Sunday. Hanging with the "Ancient Ones"- as she so fondly calls the 90 and overs- makes her feel younger. Before she came to KJOL, you may have heard her on the phone or seen her at Denning Lumber/Valley Lumber. She is happy to greet each of you as you stop by or call the station!
