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

Dale Irby is a creature of habit. The Dallas P.E. teacher wore the exact same polyester shirt and knit sweater vest for the past 40 years of yearbook photos.
Because Irby's retired, the 2012-2013 Prestonwood Elementary School yearbook marks the outfit's final appearance. Irby's work wardrobe consisted mainly of athletic clothes.
He chose the shirt and sweater combo for his first yearbook photo in 1973. The following year, he accidentally repeated the outfit. Irby says he was embarrassed when he got the school pictures back that second year. His wife dared him to repeat the outfit for his third yearbook photo. After that he thought, "Why stop?"
