"I feel terrible, really emotional," said Mylan Ray, Jamboree producer and host.

...
Producing and hosting the show had been a labor of love for Ray, but the labor part finally got to him.
"The telephone calls, the phone tag and then more information about how many songs they're going to play, what time they need to be there for sound check and rehearsal, what they might need for special lighting and equipment," Ray said. "It takes up a lot of my mental capacity. And the more time I spend on that the less time I spend on my regular job."
By day, Ray works as the music director for Christensen Broadcasting, where he's been for the past 33 years. The Slayton native has a morning show on KISD, 98.7 FM, and an afternoon show on K-Joe, country 106.1 FM. He also has his own gig, Ray-dio Enterprises, with services like mobile DJ, guest speaker, ad agency, booking agency and, of course, the Main St. Jamboree producer and host. Needless to day, Ray's a busy guy. But producing the show wasn't just a matter of filling Ray's shoes with someone else.
"I don't think anyone else around here had the contacts," he said.
...
"Had it been a huge success, I wouldn't have walked away," Ray said.
...
"I thought the novelty of country music and live radio would sell out the whole time," Ray said. "It just never quite materialized."
Ray considered why the formula didn't take off the way he anticipated. He didn't think it was the musical genre - country music is popular in the area. But he did offer up a theory.
"I don't think it's the economy, or our aging society," he said.

...
After attending the nation's top broadcasting school, Brown Institute in Minneapolis, Mylan Ray started his broadcasting career at WOKC in Okeechobee, Florida. Fifteen months later, Mylan moved up to a major market and performed an on-air show in the greater Miami area for Fort Lauderdale- Hollywood on station WGMA.
In 1975, Mylan returned to his hometown area of southwestern Minnesota. Working in Pipestone for KLOH Radio as Air Personality, Music Director, and Program Director. For 40 years, Mylan has been on-the-air for all 3 stations owned by Christensen Broadcasting.
Occupying- at one time or another- every possible air-shift. At one point, Mylan had a daily show on all three stations ... KLOH - KISD - and KJOE. Mylan's popular air-show, the "Super Gold Hour", eventually helped convert. KISD's format from Contemporary-Pop to 100% True Oldies. Mylan currently hosts the Morning Show on KISD weekdays, 8 a.m. to noon. He is on K-JOE (Country) weekdays from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Mylan also produces and hosts "Cross Country", a Christian Country, Inspirational program .. Sunday mornings .. 6 a.m. to 7:30a.m. on KLOH.
Along with his "on-air" presence (one that many in southwest Minnesota basically grew up listening to) Mylan was the first "mobile DJ" in the area to perform at dances. Having started his business "Ray-dio Enterprises" in 1977 using the name Outlaw Disco. Over the course of 38 years, Mylan's estimated 2,000 dances have covered much of southwest Minnesota, southeast South Dakota, and northwest Iowa and is still going strong. Today, his mobile music service is simply billed under his name, Mylan Ray.
Always enterprising, in 1999 Mylan created Main St. Jamboree. A "live" two­ hour country radio show performed downtown at the Pipestone Performing Arts Center. Over a hundred local and regional performers have appeared on over 40 shows. Main St.Jamboree was a major fundraiser for the Arts Center. Showcasing many artists on "live" radio .. who otherwise may not have ever received the exposure. Hosted and produced by Mylan Ray, Main St. Jamboree brought a taste of the Opry, Branson, and Hee-Haw to the upper Midwest on a regular basis. In the process, helping many talented performers get discovered and make a connection in Music City. These days, he occasionally produces "Mylan's Music On Main" as a fundraiser for the Pipestone Performing Arts Center.
Thanks to his radio career, Mylan has personally met hundreds of national recording stars.
...
Although, not a musician, Mylan has been involved in every kind of music venture possible. From songwriting and booking agent .. to writing a column for a local music publication. Mylan's personal business "Ray-dio Enterprises" has allowed him to work as a voice talent. Involved in producing agency radio ads, narrating promotional videos, and announcing at the Pipestone Civil War Festival. Recently, both KDLT and KELO TV stations have done "features" on his career. Mylan was inducted into the Iowa Rock & Roll Music Association's "Hall of Fame" in 2012. He was also inducted in the "Hall of Fame" for the South Dakota Rock
