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.

If you're a woman, you will start doing (this) at 1:35pm on Wednesday! What?
Answer: Start thinking about what you're going to wear on Saturday night!
A new survey found young women spend hours deciding what to wear for their night out on Saturday, which includes nearly two hours online researching outfits, venues, and event the weather forecast.
There's a new trend with Christmas trees this year -- skinny is in! Tall and skinny trees are all the rage this year -- both real and fake. We're talkin' trees up to 15 feet high, but half as wide. There are even the more extreme "pencil" trees which are as narrow as 18 inches across.
If you're thinking of heading in the "skinny tree" direction this year, take this advice from a professional Christmas tree decorator (from the Wall St Journal online):
Start at the top with small ornaments and work down using medium-size ornaments, reserving large ornaments for the trunk area and near the bottom. He suggests maintaining an overall sleek, simple presentation for the slim tree but using plenty of flashy gift-wrap for the presents underneath.
A man has a much better chance at scoring a date if he has a dog...but not all dogs will work... it depends on the breed, according to Alejandro Russo, co-founder of Kloof, a mobile app that allows you to create profiles for your pet.
From their survey, here are the dogs that get the job done:
1. German Shepherd
2. Golden Retriever
3. Labrador Retriever
4. Siberian Husky
5. French Bulldog
1. Golden Retriever
2. Labrador Retriever
Stay away from Chihuahuas, ladies. According to the survey, people think you're dumb, high maintenance, and more likely to be up for a one-night-stand. You can probably thank Paris Hilton for that.
A man that cheats on his wife in Washington, D.C.? No way! It IS kind of surprising, though, to find out our national hero, General David Petraeus, former CIA Director, quit his position after the FBI discovered an extramarital affair through email on his computer. Oops.
YourTango.com asked if the writing was on the wall. Are people in "prominent, morality-based professions" more likely to cheat than the rest of us? The answer is -- who really knows. It does seem that way too many of our political leaders have secret lives...that is until they start posting pictures of their body on Twitter... then it all comes crumbling down.
The website that sets up cheating couples, AshleyMadison.com, claims the most "adulterous professions" are doctors and police officers for men, and teachers and stay-at-home-moms for women.
Wow, it'll get ugly if the Doctor/Cops/Teacher/Stay at home Mom convention ever hits Vegas at the same time.
Justin Bieber has split from his actress girlfriend Selena Gomez, according to a new report. Hectic work schedules are to blame... along with the rumor that young Justin has been playing kissy-face with model Barbara Palvin. A photo showed up on Twitter of Justin in NYC with at The Lion King...and who's in the background? Yep...HER! And who tweeted this photo? Yep, Selena. Passive aggressive tweeting? Check out the photo here

Five doctors went to on a duck hunt: a GP, a pediatrician, a psychiatrist, a surgeon, and a pathologist. After a while a bird came winging overhead, the GP raised his shogun but didn’t shoot because he wasn’t sure if it was a duck or not. The pediatrician also raised his gun, but then he wasn’t sure if it was a male or female duck, so he didn’t shoot. The psychiatrist raised his gun and then thought, I know that’s a duck, but does the duck know it’s a duck?” The surgeon was the only one who shot. Boom!! He blew it away.
Then he turned to the pathologist and said, “Go see if that was a duck.”
