About Me


The glamorous life of the radio engineer: from left to right,
Todd Dixon, the late Steve Delay and yours truly. We’re packing
a transformer from a 50,000 watt AM transmitter for shipment.

My name is Stephen M. Poole; by profession, I am a broadcast (radio) engineer and programmer. My current position is Corporate IT Specialist (reverently referred to as “Cousin IT”) for Crawford Broadcasting Company (Kimtron, Inc) in Birmingham, Alabama. We have five stations in Alabama, with Chief Engineer Todd “Slipknot” Dixon (who took over from me in 2022) and Jack “Dangerous Man” Bonds as an able assistant, we manage to assist two 100,000 watt FMs, a class A FM, a 50,000 watt AM and a 5,000 watt AM and a BUNCH of servers, streams and other happiness to keep nipping along smartly.

The opinions expressed here are my own, and do not necessarily represent the opinions of my employer or anyone else on the planet.

I’m not a scientist. I’m not a theologian. I’m just a guy who loves the Lord and who reads incessantly. Constantly. I’m primarily self-taught, which probably means that I’m so dangerous, you should hide the pets and potted plants when I stroll past.

I live in the huge and happy metropolis of Hayden, AL, with my cats, Bobby and Charlie, who are more spoiled than any human children would dare to be.
