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.

Black Friday is getting pushed to Thursday again this year, and even earlier in the day. Last year, Walmart let people trample all over each other at 10pm Thanksgiving night. This year, they're moving the riots up two hours to 8pm as retailers try and grab more of a chunk of Black Friday shopping, which by the way, is expected to be down this year compared to last. Deals this year include:
Walmart bought deep on the electronic items this year, and will sell them in three waves. The first at 8pm, the second at 10pm, and the third at 5am on Black Friday. If you're in line between 10pm and 11pm, you're guaranteed to get one of their three top discount deals (listed above.
Sears also plans to go live at 8pm on turkey day.

A chicken walks into a bar.
The bartender says, "We don't serve poultry!"
The chicken says, "That's OK, I just want a drink."
Where should we set it?
