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.

Cascarones are an Hispanic-American Culture Easter Celebration [VIDEO]

When I was kid growing up Easter time was special. Not only did it represent the resurrection of our lord and savior Jesus Christ but it meant family time. On the Saturday before Easter, my mother would get me and my brother together for the traditional coloring of the eggs, which back then was only a few colors. Nowadays, you can do just about anything to an egg to decorate it and make it look festive. Heck, you can even give it some BLING if that's what you like.

Being Hispanic, my mother and father always made sure we inherited some Mexican traditions as well, like making cascarones.
