It’s hard to believe I’ve been on the radio for 35 years now!
I’m very excited to be part of an amazing rock and roll family at the river…
I grew up in southern California, and as an aspiring drummer I would crank up my stereo and play along with the Beatles, Stones, Creedence, Beach Boys, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin and BTO! I was definitely better at cuing up the records than I was drumming, so I started hanging around radio stations in the 70’s… one was brave enough to hire me!
I arrived in Atlanta in 1992 as part of the original cast of 99x, and after its demise, I moved to New York city to help launch a classic rock radio station there… after re-discovering my music roots, I’m back!
I’m always asked what my favorite album of all time is, it’s just too hard to pick one… but i guess I’d have to say “pet sounds” by the beach boys. The first album I bought with my saved lunch money was Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” and I have the greatest punk and new wave album collection east of the Mississippi, so I guess you can say I’m all over the rock and roll map!
My first concert was on my 16th birthday when I snuck in to see the Ramones in their very first west coast concert… I’ve been a big supporter of live and local music ever since!
As an instrument-rated pilot, I’m also proud to support a wonderful organization here in Georgia … “Angel Flight” is a non-profit group of pilots who fly free medical support missions for those who can’t afford transportation. Please find out more here.
I can’t thank you enough for listening!
