When I was a kid I loved listening to the radio and calling in to play the contests. When I was in 6th grade, a friend of mine and I skipped school and walked over to the radio station to watch the d.j. do his show. It was the first time I ever skipped school. Being a d.j. is all I wanted to do.

In the late 70’s I was working as a d.j. at several local nightclubs when I became friends with some of the local radio guys that would come out to do live broadcasts. One of them turned out to be a guy I went to High School with and he encouraged me to come out to the station and apply. So I did. A couple months later I got the phone call that would change my life… I was hired! I didn’t have a car so I would hitchhike to and from work every night! That was 1980 and I’ve been working in Wichita radio ever since.
