From his beginnings in radio in Darlington in 1960 (which he lied his way into at the urging of his mother), Woody Windham has become a South Carolina radio icon.  He has enjoyed a long career in Columbia and Charleston, both solo and with his brother Leo.  It would not be too big a stretch to speculate that millions of South Carolinians may have grown up listening to "Woody with the Goodies" on a variety of stations in the Midlands and Lowcountry and beyond. 

"I'm not gonna retire, I'm gonna die at the mike."

Whether it’s rock and roll, beach, blues or country, Woody has played it all – and still does, now on woodywindham.com on the Internet.   Now not only the entire state, but the world can enjoy listening to his home-grown Pee Dee humor and great hits from the last half-century and more.   Looking back on his career as well as at today's media landscape, Windham says he's "in it for life."
