At A Glance....
I can’t remember when I thought that getting into radio would be a good idea. Sometimes, I’m not sure if that point has come yet! It was probably when I first walked into The Fox, and said, “Hey, this might be cool.” It might have been all the fun buttons to play with and the adventure of running a reel-to-reel. Hell, I was 20. I didn’t know any better.
I had started Dee Jaying for Jr. High Dances, and birthday parties, and weddings weren’t too far off. But quickly learned that the stress of freaked out brides wasn’t worth it, so hung up my mixer and now only do private parties, or on occasion outside PA wedding services. Now, just radio is good enough.
Currently, you can hear me from 9am to Noon, Weekdays! I also take care of The Fox’s website, so if there is something you like or want less of, I’m your guy.
