Helloooo! Welcome to MY PAGE! My own little chunk of the World Wide Web. It's very exciting.
My career started while in college at a little Top 40 station in Clare, Michigan (the Gateway to the North). Not only was I a weekend DJ, but I was also the station janitor. No kidding! I did what was needed to break into the biz, even if it included scrubbing toilets.
After Clare, it was on to Saginaw, Michigan, a decade in Kalamazoo (yes, there really is...), north to Grand Rapids, and then south to Greenville, where I'm excited to take over afternoons on MY 102.5!!!
I met the love of my life in Kalamazoo at a wine festival. Kelcey told me on that first night: "You'll never meet a girl in Kalamazoo." Apparently not... that night! But I won her over with my charm, wit, and a great deal of wine. We married in September of 2001. She's my best friend.

A new survey from Citi and LinkedIn found 96% of women think they can "have it all" when it comes to family, money, and a successful career.
So what does "having it all" actually mean? Two things, according to most women in this survey
That's having it all. The research found most women want a job they can enjoy and a boss that values their work. Only 15% wanted to be the boss. Top financial worries were paying off student loans, saving for retirement, credit card debt, and paying for their children's needs.
So this is how Bill Clinton works his magic! It turns out a guy with a red nose and rosy glow signals perceived aggression, dominance, and attractiveness to women.
I thought it signaled alcoholism, but nooooo.... (but, seriously, maybe)
In a study, a bunch of women were asked to use a computer to change the color of male faces to make them more attractive, and most of them went for more reddish glow.
Keep in mind, this was skin tone and not hair... Red hair still means evil. Maybe not (but, seriously, maybe).
Billboard.com named Rihanna the top pop artist of the last 20 years. The singer bagged first place in the countdown ahead of Pink and Britney Spears, who came in second and third, respectively. Kelly Clarkson landed fourth place, while Mariah Carey rounded out the top five. Katy Perry, Usher, the Black Eyed Peas, Janet Jackson and Madonna made up the rest of the top 10.
How did Rihanna celebrate? By taking off her clothes for a new ad for Nude Perfume -- invented by, of course, Rihanna. Need proof? head here
Rihanna’s dad has given her ex Chris Brown his blessing to romance his daughter again, insisting he has always respected the R&B star. Brown has confirmed he and model Karrueche Tran have split over his growing friendship with Rihanna, and Ronald Fenty couldn’t be happier that his daughter and her ex-boyfriend could soon be back in each other’s arms. He tells In Touch magazine, “I think everyone makes mistakes and they shouldn’t be held to them forever. Everyone should be forgiven once. There’s a lot more to Chris than the whole world knows."
Why is pop music making pop stars throw up on stage? Last week, Justin Bieber barfed twice during the opening night of his Believe tour, and now Lady Gaga has hurled during a gig in Barcelona, Spain. Gaga gagged and lost her lunch three times while singing “Edge of Glory” and later tweeted, “Was praying nobody saw but actually it’s quite a good laugh if u need one! Yes, there is video proof --

A young man looking to get married asked his friend. "Every woman I bring home to meet my parents, my mother doesn't like."
"Oh, that's easy," his pal replied. "All you have to do is find someone whos' just like your mother." "I did that already," he said, "and that one my father didn't like."
