A clunky old tape recorder many years ago, set my course in life as we "played" radio. Playing was fun but I then got the itch for the real thing and 40 years later I'm still in the radio business. I love the news game and the talk show scene because the subjects are constantly changing. I have had stays in radio in Stratford, London, Sarnia, Cornwall and now Saugeen Shores. I hope to end my career in this great community at a great radio station!

Favourite song/artist/group: Too many to mention in too many eras. My father taught me to appreciate all music. Even at an advanced age, my dad enjoyed the beginnings of Rap.
If I could change the world: We would all slow down a bit.
Your perfect day: A sunny warm day, a pleasant summer evening, sitting around the camp fire, listening to tunes, having a beverage with my better half Ann and our dog, Ubu. Doesn't get any better than that!
My perfect work day is breaking a good news story that no one else has. We do that quite a bit at 98 the Beach!
