I am a Detroit native who got into radio in the mid 1970s after a stint in the U.S. Army. My favorite artists include The Four Tops and Bob Seger. My career stops have included Kenosha, WI; Bloomington, IN; and Ocean City, MD; before landing in Lake Charles in 1994. My wife Ginger and I have five cats: Hokey, Pokey (that’s right), Lady Jane Grey, Nefertitti and Brutus (Buckeye). Needless to say, we go through a lot of cat food! I still root for my hometown sports teams, the Detroit Tigers and even the Detroit Lions, and I also enjoy watching college football. In fact, my wife and I bet dinner on the outcome of the Michigan/Ohio State football game and Detroit /Cleveland baseball and football standings.
