I became addicted to radio at an early age. I remember my mother complaining because I would change her station from her morning news to the local top forty station. This addiction forced me into holing up in my room for hours with a stack of 45s on an imaginary DJ show complete with records and snappy record introduction. (creepy) I knew that I belonged on the radio. After a stint in the Navy, I returned to Yakima and attended JM Perry’s broadcast school as a first step to making my career goals a reality. I got my big break at KIT radio working the midnight to six shift where I honed my skills while most of the world slept. I have worked at several stations in the valley over the years before coming to Cherry FM where I play the hits with Brian Stephenson every morning. As I enter my fortieth year in broadcasting I still get the same thrill that I did when I was that little boy in the bedroom playing the hits.
