I was born a very large baby quite a few years ago...blah blah blah...went to school...yada yada...uh, then radio happened.

I have no real skills, so I thought, "hmm, since Wal-mart isn't hiring, maybe radio would be fun." So, I have been in radio for 33 years, and have been working at Country 102.5 since 1994. Since 1997 I have been host of the morning show. For 12 years I have had the privilege of sharing the morning show with the very lovely and talented Lori Grande. Lori, and Hank Morse, who handles traffic every morning, are the best folks to work with! Very easy going, and fun. I’m sure they would say the same of me…if they were offered lots of cash.
 
Oh, and can I just say how much I hate that pic of me? Sheesh. Hideous. OK, well anyway, to continue...

I currently reside in Holliston with my lovely wife of 25 years, Sarah, and our three wonderfully adorable daughters, Meghan, Kaitlyn, and Amanda. Two of those lovely ladies have gone off to college, but they still come home from time to time to borrow money and eat. Along with the humans, we have four cats, Bella, Sampson, Ron and Harry, plus a yard full of wild vermin. As for stuff outside of radio, I enjoy reading, going to the beach, taking long walks on short piers, and watching the New England Revolution play.

My favorite artists? How about Keith Urban, Darius Rucker, Eric Paslay, Lady Antebellum, Eric Church, Brett Eldredge, Gary Allan and The Band Perry. Fav TV shows? How 'bout Modern Family, NCIS, and, yea, I'm STILL into Survivor, oh, and, of course, Downton Abbey, (another glass of port please, Carson). 

Fav movies? How about Jaws? Love watching any Harry Potter movie with my kids. Love all of the Bourne flicks, (except "Legacy" - hey, No Matt Damon!). Anything done by Pixar, and wait, gotta list Shawshank. How about books? Fav authors include Follett, Rutherfurd & Tolkien, and yea, JK Rowling.
 
That's enough for now...if you're still awake. Thanks for pretending to be interested. :)
