I was born in Salem Mass and raised in Southern California about two blocks from the beach. I surfed the whole time I was growing up, yes like in the movies, no I wasn't in the movies. I went to collage in San Diego and was bitten by the broadcasting bug and have spent a good part of my life in a U-Haul van! Radio has taken me from East coast to West coast and back again. I've done everything in the business but over nights. I've been blessed with a career that I was so very lucky to have. My Wife is from Utica and works in radio as well. We have two rescue dogs, Molly and Gibbs, oh, and a yellow nape Amazon parrot named Oscar and yes he talks up a storm and is as mean as a snake. The Eagle is a complete circle for me as I played all this music when it first came out, I think that was sometime last week.
