Cindy Campbell’s 34th Year Anniversary at Q106.5 [PHOTOS]
Happy anniversary! Cindy Campbell just passed another milestone. She just completed her 34th year at Q106.5 The radio station has only been in existence for 35 years. Cindy was hired back in the Bob Duchesne, Brent Stephens, Lee McCoy days. She started behind the scenes, but shortly after, started doing weekend shows.
It wasn't long after that when Lee McCoy left, Brent Stephens moved into the afternoon show and Cindy settled into the midday show on Q106.5.
What is 34 years without some photos? Here is a publicity photo from the 80s. Listeners asked deejays to autograph them back in the day.
Of course back in those days meeting artists was very common place too.

Cindy said her favorite was backstage in the early 90s at a Garth Brooks concert and the radio station had won an ACM Award for Small Market Radio Station of the Year and Garth spent an hour telling stories, listening to stories and generally acting like he was in his living room before going on stage for a concert.
A popular question in more current years to Cindy is "what time do you get up in the morning," since she's been part of the Q106.5 Morning Show for years now. The answer is 3:30 a.m.
However, she never dresses like this for work. Cindy dressed as a 'saloon girl' for Dexter Wild West Days.

And the fun continues, whether it's being tackled while 'carrying' many dozen eggs.
Or a pie in the face.
I asked Cindy how long she planned to stay when she started in June 1987, and her answer was
"I was just happy to get out of the house and do what I love to do. No thoughts of how long I'd stay"
Well Cindy, here's to you staying as long as you'd like to stay. And why not, since you enjoy what you're doing and it beats a 'real job'. Hats off to anyone who has stayed in a job as long as you Cindy, Thirty-four years at the same radio station doesn't happen very often, so be proud and keep enjoying the ride.
