ELK CITY, OKLAHOMA -- Show prep for the Brewer boys doesn't involve much more than a cup of hot coffee, the morning paper, and a dependable website.
Five days a week, at 96.5 on the FM dial, Nathan and his twin brother Landry do an hour of straight talk on KECO and KOOL94 Elk City.
"KECO is a Top 40 radio station," says Nathan, "But we take an hour to talk."
Nathan in the radio man of the family.
Landry is a history professor at SWOSU's campus in Sayre.
It's been a decade since one convinced the other to let an audience listen in to the kinds of conversations they'd been holding all their lives.
"We had a lot of experience being brothers," says Nathan.
"We have a lot of experience being together," says Landry.
"Before we went on the air," continues Nathan.
"We don't have to worry about chemistry," continues Landry.
They're on from 7 to 8 o'clock.
This particular morning marked their 10th anniversary together on the air.
A special guest (me) even dropped in for segment #2.
They talk a little news, a lot of sports, and some pop culture stuff.
The hour always goes by fast.
"Nathan says, "We like to have fun! We like to have fun. We like to mix it up. We like to talk about a lot of different stuff."
Twins sometimes have their own special language, but the Brewer's audience understands them just fine.
No translation needed, just an occasional word in 'edgewise'.
The Morning Show is number one in the ratings for Elk City.
