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.
Born: Troy, Michigan

A mall in Sydney, Australia is making news this week for banning loud kids. If your kid makes noise, you're not welcome. Here's the posted notice:
"Stop. Parents please be considerate of other customers using the food court. Screaming children will not be tolerated in the centre."
The mall's manager, Brenda Mulcahy, said "mother's have to be more responsible. We have had so many complaints."
Feedback: $10 American bucks she hasn't had one dang complaint. Brenda hates kids, or she hates moms -- either way, here's my question: Is the world becoming anti-parent or anti-kid? Just look at the news lately -- a restaurant gives a discount to parents with good kids, while another restaurant is banning kids completely. This mall seems to have a problem with kids in their Food Court. Tell us, our kidless friends, when is it okay for us to venture out with our kids, and I'm talking beyond parties at Chuck E Cheese???
