    Saturday and Sunday Nights 6PM – 12AM

    Here’s my story.  I was born in Peru Indiana and grew up in the middle of 29 acres of woods with four other brothers. We had a barn, a cow and chickens. Take “The Waltons”, stir in “Little House on the Prairie”, dump it out in 1974 and that’s where you’d find me.
    My Grandfather was a HAM radio operator, so I’m guessing watching him put on headphones and talk into a microphone had something to do with where I am today. We moved to Kokomo when I was eleven and the local radio station was only a small bike ride away. After pestering them for seven years, I got my first radio job while still in high school. I’ve pretty much stayed in Indiana, working in Kokomo, Fort Wayne and Indianapolis, with a brief stop in Dayton Ohio.

    HOMETOWN: Noblesville

    CAREER HISTORY: WWKI, WZWZ, 1350 WIOU – Kokomo. WSHW – Frankfort. WKLR and WIBC – Indianapolis. WJLT/WLDE – Fort Wayne. 1290 WHIO and WHKO – Dayton Ohio.

    FAVORITE CONCERT I’VE EVER BEEN TO: Easy. Kenny Rogers in the round at Market Square Arena, 1982. It was the first time I ever came to Indy. We drove around Monument Circle and I had no idea I was looking at my future.

    TELEVISION: I’m a huge fan of CBS’ classic 1970s Saturday night “Murderer’s Row” lineup: All In The Family, Mary Tyler Moore Show, Bob Newhart Show, Carol Burnett. And M*A*S*H. And I never missed an episode of “The Office.” (that’s what she said).

    MOVIES: I go for the classics: Sunset Boulevard, Double Indemnity, Casablanca. Raiders of the Lost Ark, Star Wars. My favorite film has to be the dust covered classic western: “The Good The Bad And The Ugly.”

    LITTLE KNOWN FACT ABOUT ME: I love to write.

    ADDICTION: I’m an avid NFL jersey collector. The classic stuff.

    FAVORITE LOCAL JOINTS: Acapulco Joes, Iaria’s Italian Restaurant, Bynum’s Steak House.

    FAVORITE THING ABOUT WORK: I love what I do. When you love what you do, is it ever really work?

    TYPICAL BREAKFAST: Two eggs, three strips of bacon, gallon of water. Every morning. And coffee.

    THREE THINGS TO DO BEFORE I DIE: Have more fun. Become a Dad. Own my own restaurant.
