                       We get Story #205 from Tim Holland, Earth FM producer and on-air personality.

Give him a manual or an instructive YouTube video and Tim Holland can fix anything.  The Greenville native was ADD and dyslexic as a child, but also a daydreamer.  He was always solving problems in his head.  He's a member of Mensa and all of these traits help him be exactly what Earth FM and WGTK, The Answer need: talented producer and on-air personality, as well as huge help on the engineering side of things. When you add his deep love for radio and Tim Holland is living a charmed life.
