    I am a proud 3rd generation broadcaster, my father & grandfather both owned radio stations, my grandfather, Paul, owned several stations here in Michigan, my father Roger owned radio stations in Colorado & California. I first hit the airwaves when I was 13 years old on my father’s A.M. station in Victorville, CA.

     In February of 2014, I celebrated my 20th anniversary on the air here at WLAV. In those 20 years, I have spent the majority of the time in the 3 to 7 pm shift. I have also hosted LAV’s Sunday morning Jazz Brunch for over 18 of those years. I have had the privilege of being WLAV’s program director for over 8 years. In addition to programming WLAV & hosting a daily show on WLAV, I am also the “voice” for the Huge Show on 107.3 WBBL FM & the Huge Radio Network.

    When I’m not on the air, my escape is cooking, I love finding new recipes & trying them out on my wife & friends, most of the time they’re pretty good! I have fairly large Smoker (it’s on wheels!) Brisket is my favorite, but brisket takes a long time, so I don’t get to it very often. I smoke just about everything you would normally BBQ. My pork ribs are outstanding as well as my beer can chicken! One mention on Facebook or a simple text & there is a crowd of friends at the house in short order! They bring the sides & I do up the main dish. My friend Bubba & I have worked for years at perfecting our “art”. I also cook up some pretty good chili.

    I have been married for over 25 years to my best friend, Shelly. We have 2 children, Mike & Reiney. We became “empty nesters” this past fall with daughter Reiney heading off to Western University to study psychology….it’s kind of weird after all these years but Shelly & I are getting used to it! I also have a beautiful daughter Erica from my first marriage, she lives in Colorado.

    Music is my life; just ask my neighbors who regularly get to hear whatever I am into at the moment. It may be hard to imagine but I have a pretty loud stereo…
