I was born and raised in Lubbock, Texas. I began my Country Radio career at KLLL in Lubbock, TX. Some of the places I have lived and played Country music on the radio include Kansas City, Louisville, Nashville and many other ports over the years. I have programmed some legendary stations: WDAF, Kansas City, WHN, New York City; WSM, Nashville and KVOO, Tulsa. None has been as much fun as WBKR right here in Owensboro. I enjoy fine scotch and wine. I love Major League Baseball and my team of choice is the New York Yankees. I exercise regularly at Health Park and listen to my music collection while doing so. My wife, Debra and I watch some Bravo TV shows and from time to time i make her watch an old Sopranos DVD or an episode of Mad Men.
