I LOVE being on the radio, and it's all I ever wanted to do since I was a kid! So here I am living my dream, playing the music that I love! I'm married with 2 great kids. My son Jackson is 13 and my daughter Lauren is 10, and we're a tight little family unit! We go for walks and bike rides together, and we love to go for weekend trips. At our house, every Friday night is "Pizza and Star Trek Night" when we watch TV and have pizza delivered! I think everybody has one geeky obsession, and mine is the space program! No, I'm not a real astronaut, but I like to read about them , and have met most of my heroes, the US astronauts from the 60's and 70's.
I've worked in radio for 25 years, and have loved every minute of it! My wife's name is Lisa and we have two kids, ages 10 and 13. I'll be telling you a lot more about them on my show! We love to go for bike rides and weekend trips. We've gotten our kids hooked on old TV shows like "The Brady Bunch," "Star Trek," and "Batman," and every Friday night we have a pizza delivered and watch a great old show! I love to play hockey, and I read a lot about the US space program! Big fan of the 60's and 70's era astronauts! It was either astronaut or deejay for me, and, well, here I am!
Another sad day today. Today I've been thinking about how I'm going to discuss this with my kids. The other day we were thinking about taking our kids to a movie, and they both said they were scared of somebody shooting them. Seems like our kids are growing up in a world where they have to be scared all the time.
It's all changed so much since we were kids. When I was 9, my parents put me on a Greyhound bus alone for 6 hours to go visit my cousin. Later, as teenagers, we'd drive over to the airport and wander around just watching people and the planes take off. You could walk right up to the gate without a ticket or even a good reason to be there. Nothing like either of those could happen today.
I don't know if we were actually safer back then, but I know we weren't as scared as my kids are now. I hope it's not always this way.
