School. KUGR Pullman. Wazzu's Wired Rock. '83-'86. Paid starting in August of '86. Spokane first, until 1993, then Tri-Cities and Yakima. We rock out weekdays 3-7pm. I was born and raised in Yakima and it's great to be on my home-town rock station. I graduated from Carroll High School in 1983 and attended Washington State University. I have a special place in my heart for Pearl Jam and am a proud member of the 12th Man. I am a beaming Papa of 2 kiddos, boy 18, and girl 14, who I get to help raise everyday. I'm very grateful for the blessings they and my love of a dozen years provide in my life. I am passionate about the arts, sports and travel both in the USA and abroad. Raising cash and awareness for the Alzheimer's Association is vital to me too. It is my honor to help carry and pass the rock torch through the radio generations. It's a responsibility I do not take lightly. Thank you for rocking. Thank you for listening.
