For me, one of the greatest joys in the world is hearing a great new song for the first time. That started when I got my first portable radio for Christmas at age eight. That radio and I couldn’t be separated.
I spent hours emulating the disc jockeys I heard on St. Louis radio stations. The cassette deck allowed me to record myself introducing songs and interviewing imaginary guests. Some of those embarrassing tapes are still in my garage. In college, I finally had a chance to work ‘on air’ for real, and it was a blast!
Today, I love music as much as ever. And, while radio is not a full time career for me, I’m thrilled to host my very own show, playing music that I love – Americana.
