Willie B.: Willie B is a deejay for Denver, CO, rock station 106.7 KBPI, and host of one of the highest-rated morning shows in the market. He’s also a professed drag racing nut, having competed since he was 15 years old.
Willie B has two passions – cars and radio. He began his career in radio at 16 at the historic, yet modest WFMI in Kentucky. Eventually, he found his way to Denver where he built his career at KBPI, and his personality has built a large following with his popular morning show.
“I’m kind of a gearhead, a car guy, and my dad was a car guy and all my friends are car guys,” said Willie, who grew up in Winchester, KY, and began working at KBPI in 1993.
Willie B built a 1968 Dodge Super Bee to compete in SPEED Channel’s PINKS All Out episode at Bandimere Speedway, just outside Denver in 2008. Word spread of his talents behind the mike and in the car during the filming at Bandimere, and Willie was offered a job as a cast member on the PINKS All Out series. He spent two seasons traveling with PINKS until the series completed its run on SPEED.
He has restored, rebuilt, crashed, blown up and reworked a number of cars, jeeps, and toys in his lifetime and looks forward to sharing his car knowledge with the viewers of Two Guys Garage.
