Where are you answering these questions from?  The couch while my wife watches Housewives of every county.

How did you get started in Broadcasting?  13 years ago I begged for a job in Lexington, KY.  I called everyday and told them I would do anything even sweep the floors if they would let me in the building.  A few days later they let me board op baseball games at WLAP-AM Saturday and Sunday nights just so I wouldn’t call anymore and bug them. Thank you Doug and Leslie Hamand!!!
What are 3 items you CAN NOT live without?   Wife, Daughter, My HD Fatboy

Favorite item of clothing/jewelry/accessory? Probably my Oakley O’rokr shades.  I can listen to music via Bluetooth on my phone while cruising on the Harley.  This is where I test many of the new songs and artists I find.  If I can jam while riding to your song it just might get some air time.
