I grew up in McMinnville Oregon. Radio started for me at a small Community College in Gresham, Oregon where I got horrible grades in all my classes except my radio classes….and right then and there I realized that radio must be my true calling! Either radio, or being a drying paint watcher…radio seemed more fun! My 1st real radio job at age 19 In Kelso, Washington paid $600 a month working the exciting and riveting hours of midnight-6! Turntables, records (those circular vinyl things) and a live microphone….I was in Valhalla (Even though I had only 4.8 listeners)!!
My good friend Monte Turner offered me a job here in Missoula Mt (I’d never even been to Montana before) in 1984, and I’ve been here ever since! I love long walks on the beach, puppies, and sunsets (but lets keep that between us, ok?)
Bio coming soon.
I got my start in Missoula radio in the 1980’s. As a rock and roll jock I played the tunes of the day like The Beatles and ZZ Top. Now I’m at the helm of Hit radio in Missoula.
I am on the air from 2pm-6pm. Tune in and let me play you your favorite hits. And remember you can call in your favorites for the 5 o’clock flashback too.
The most important things to me are my two daughters, my grandchildren, my band, and my faith. I dislike rude people, Monday’s and having no money.
