I like putting a smile on my listeners’ faces as they drive home, so I keep things upbeat, funny and informative, whether I’m telling you about different events in our community, introducing a great concert, or hosting a charity fundraiser. It’s gratifying being able to touch people with something I say on air or do at an event. In my spare time I enjoy the outdoors, traveling, movies, football and grilling out. I love just chilling out with my wife, kids or my three beautiful grandchildren who call me Papa G. Radio has changed a lot since I began working weekends on KOSY 790 AM when I was 16 years old, but it has been very good to me and it is something I’ve wanted to do since I was a little boy. I’m just blessed I’ve been able to do it all these years.

Only one new movie this weekend but it's a BIG ONE! 'Transformers: Age of Extinction' continues the series based on the 1980s cartoon. In this sequel, the U.S. government has found a way to create it's own Transformer by using the deceased head of Megatron. Their mission to wipe out the remaining Autobots. And for the first time there will be Dinobots! It's going to be interesting to see if this franchise has been milked for all it's worth. But if Mark Wahlberg is in the lead role it has to be good.
