My early days were in the Chicago suburbs during the 50s and 60s, when I was influenced by the people and music I heard on the radio and saw on TV. While my parents watched Lawrence Welk (I played the accordion too), I enjoyed viewing American Bandstand, the Midnight Special, Ed Sullivan, and other shows where I could see the Beatles, Elvis, and other performers of that time.

I listened to Art Roberts and Larry Lujack on WLS, and decided that being a goofball on the radio and getting paid for it would be a smart thing to do. I didn’t realize at the time that being a gypsy and moving around the country to work at different radio stations would be part of the process. After working at 15 other Radio and TV stations, I landed at WYMG. I’m happy to be here and especially enjoy being in a community where people are friendly and helpful to each other.

I strive to be informed about what’s going on in Central Illinois and share that info with my listeners. The history of the music and the artists we play on WYMG is fascinating to me, and I hope, to our audience as well.

Thank you for listening, and if you have any suggestions, please let me know!
