Born and raised on a dairy farm near Waukon, Iowa (brother and nephew still are milking on it.) Have been involved in country radio in Indianapolis for over 30years. Proud of CMA, ACM, and Hall Of Fame awards at home! When not listening to country music he likes yard work, reading mysteries, cooking, and oh yeah an occasional trip to Las Vegas! Roots for the Iowa Hawkeyes and our Colts. He favors the traditional type country music, George Strait, Reba McEntire, Randy Travis and Alan Jackson and of course a Saturday night at the Grand Old Opry.
