Radio is my DREAM COME TRUE! It’s never been just a job or profession, no, not for me. A childhood dream come true that literally rescued this inner-city boy from a struggling existance. It’s broadcasting that fuels my passion for life, providing me with daily thrills and challenges that most people don’t get in a lifetime. I most enjoy my work on those special ocassions when presented with the honor of showing my audience how a, so-called, average person is really not so average at all!
