I have been in radio for 30 years, on-air and behind the scenes. I am married, have three daughters, and the best good friend I ever had was an old hound dog that I still miss terribly. At times I have been among "America's Most Honored" and one time I was almost one of "America's Most Wanted." I am the first to admit that I have a weird sense of humor. I do share a lot of my personal opinions no matter how lazy and uninformed I might be, which has resulted in receiving a number of "write in votes" for President of the United States (less than 10, but that's more than most people ever get). I like cartoons more than news and subscribe to some magazines. But as far as reading books goes, I wait for the movie. When asked what my religion is, I always answer "love."
