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!
I have been asked by my wife to please stop buying my daily can of Mtn Dew. She's calculated that our family could save $225.00 per year, money that she believes this would enable us to afford luxury items like "food" and "medicine."
Unfortunately, the week she picked for this project is the week when temperatures are nearing 200 degrees, which has made this extra excruciating. Just look at all that delicious, cold, cold, sweet, bubbly nectar! Mmmmm. Must have some!
I've tried to switch to work coffee for my daily caffeine rush, which is free, (Well, free for me anyway! Thanks, radio station big-shots!) but just isn't the same. For one thing, I don't like that "coffee breath" taste, and for another, it's hot. I don't want hot, I want cold. Tried putting ice in my coffee today, and that was okay, but not great.
Secret: I found a couple un-accounted-for quarters on the dresser a couple days ago and had a soda-relapse, and I don't mind tellin' you it was good. Very good. Okay, I'm going to put on a long song (maybe something by Celine Dion? Her songs are pretty long.) and go out to the car to look underneath the seats!
