ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS FROM LISTENERS AND MY FELLOW B101.5 PERSONALITIES (THIS SHOULD BE INTERESTING)…

Favorite sports teams? Don’t really watch sports but if I did it would be the Yankees for Baseball, and the Rangers for Hockey

What do you like to do when you’re not working?  My life is music so I engulf myself in my studio and just let those creative juices flow and then when I REALLY want to relax, I just take a trip somewhere.

What has been your most interesting listener interaction?  Oh man, there are so many over the years but one that stands out is a lady who was so star struck after she met me, she literally cried and wouldn’t stop hugging me.  I was very flattered to say the least.  When I told her that she was becoming my favorite listener, she literally got so excited she practically pee’d herself… poor thing.

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? A Fireman, a guy who played with lights and a DJ on the radio… no, really… so I was a videographer many years ago for a fire company, I’ve become a lighting technician and design and do many light and laser shows for the past 25 years as well as have had a very successful 32 year radio career (as of 2020) thus far…
