Amber Taylor - Afternoon Delight & Then Some
HIT KICKER CAFE at NOON and from 2PM to 6PM
Amber Taylor was diagnosed with an incurable condition when she was 11. It changed her life forever.
In her early 20's, Taylor was diagnosed with ANOTHER incurable condition. It changed her life forever.
At the age of 30, she found out her heart wasn't quite up to speed, either, after dying in Maui, Hawaii. For some great reason, though, she came back to life and loves every single day!!!
Living with two incurable illnesses, and a heart that doesn't make sense, Amber somehow manages to bring a smile to faces everywhere through her online writing publications and through radio on KYKC, even on the days she doesn't know how she got out of bed. Every day is a fight to live for her, but she keeps on keepin' on! This is why we love Amber!
Amber Taylor's Bio:
ALVIN FROM CALVIN, WAS SEARCHING.
LOOKING. AS SOME WOULD SAY, "WAITING ON A WOMAN."
WHEN OUT OF NOWHERE, HE MET SUSIE, AND ALVIN THOUGHT, "SHE'S A HOTTIE." ESPECIALLY WHEN "BABY'S GOT HER BLUE JEANS ON." ALVIN TOLD SUSIE, "DON'T YOU KNOW YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL?" "MY WISH" IS THAT YOU WOULD "STAY." GOD DEFINITELY "BLESSED THE BROKEN ROAD" THAT LED ME STRAIGHT TO YOU.
A YEAR LATER, ALVIN AND SUSIE BOTH THOUGHT TO THEMSELVES, "I SAW GOD TODAY," WHEN THEIR DAUGHTER, AMBER TAYLOR, WAS BORN. EACH NIGHT, SUSIE WOULD ROCK AMBER TO SLEEP TO A "WHISKEY LULLABY."
AS THE YEARS PASSED, ALVIN DID A LOT OF "SHIFTWORK." BEFORE THEY BOTH KNEW IT, AMBER HAD GROWN INTO A "GOOD-HEARTED WOMAN," AND BEGAN TO WONDER "IS THERE LIFE OUT THERE?" AMBER DECIDED IT WAS TIME TO LEAVE ADA, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HER LIFE. AMBER WAS MORE THAN READY TO MOVE TO OKLAHOMA CITY SO SHE COULD FINISH HER BROADCASTING DEGREE. AMBER TOLD ALVIN, "YOU CAN LET GO NOW DADDY," I REALLY DO HAVE "GOOD DIRECTIONS," AND YOU WILL BE "AMAZED." DADDY, JUST REMEMBER, "I WAS BORN TO FLY."
AMBER TAYLOR SET OUT AND DID WHAT SHE ALWAYS FELT LED TO DO WITH HER LIFE. SHE FLEW, JUST LIKE SHE SAID SHE WOULD, EVEN AT TIMES SHE HAD A "BROKEN WING." AMBER GRADUATED SCHOOL, LANDED A JOB WITH ADA RADIO BROADCAST GROUP, AND BECAME AN AFTERNOON DJ FOR COOL 99.3FM KADA. SHE LOVED THE CITY LIFE OF OKC, BUT SHE WAS A COUNTRY GIRL AT HEART, SO MOVING BACK TO ADA WASN'T ALL TOO BAD. SEVERAL MONTHS PASSED, AND, AS IF SHE WAS WALKING DOWN SOME "HAPPY TRAILS," THE AFTERNOON DJ POSITION ON CONTINUOUS HIT COUNTRY, 100.1 KYKC, BECAME AVAILABLE TO AMBER. "UNBELIEVABLE," AMBER THOUGHT, BEING THE AFTERNOON DJ FOR KYKC WOULD BE LIKE "HOLDIN' HEAVEN."
WE AREN'T SAYING AMBER "IS THE REASON GOD MADE OKLAHOMA," BUT "ALL THE GOLD IN CALIFORNIA" CAN'T COMPARE TO AMBER. SHE'S A LITTLE WACKY, SOMEWHAT GOOFY, MAYBE A LITTLE CRAZY. AMBER DOESN'T LIVE AN "ORDINARY LIFE," AND SHE ISN'T YOUR "EVERY DAY" TYPICAL GIRL, BUT SHE'S ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS A "LADY." IF NO ONE ELSE IN THE WORLD DOES, AMBER TAYLOR BELIEVES IN TRUE LOVE, AND THINKS YOU SHOULD LIVE EACH DAY AS IF IT'S YOUR LAST. BECAUSE, WHAT "IF TOMORROW NEVER COMES?" AMBER IS ALL ABOUT "ROLLIN' WITH THE FLOW," AND THINKS "IF THE WORLD HAD A FRONT PORCH" EVERYONE WOULD JUST BE A "SWINGIN'." FROM TIME TO TIME, AMBER ENJOYS A "GIRLS NIGHT OUT," AND REALLY, YOU SHOULD ASK HER TO GET DOWN TO "ELVIRA." SHE WILL.
ONCE IN A WHILE, YOU CAN CATCH AMBER DOING THE "HILLBILLY ROCK" IN HER "HILLBILLY SHOES" AT THE "YA'LL COME BACK SALOON."
SHE REALLY IS THE "HAPPIEST GIRL IN THE WHOLE U.S.A." "IT'S A GREAT DAY TO BE ALIVE," AND AT THE END OF THE DAY, AMBER SAYS, "I WOULDN'T HAVE MISSED IT FOR THE WORLD."
EVERYTHING AMBER DOES IS IN HONOR OF HER MOMMA.
AMBER SAYS, "I CARRY YOUR HEART, MOMMA. I CARRY IT IN MY HEART."
IN LOVING MEMORY OF SUSAN GAIL
