Wow, I can’t believe it ... I’ve been waking up Greater Danbury and New York for almost 30 years. Now I'm having more fun then you should legally be allowed to have here at Kicks 105.5 with my co-host Suzy. I grew up on Long Island went to college at St. John’s University, and worked in radio on “The Island” for almost 10 years before making the big move to Danbury in 1989. I have three great kids and the best wife ever. I will actually be riding her coat tails into heaven someday. (I would have trouble getting in on my own.) I also coach High School Baseball at Brookfield High School and American Legion Baseball in the summer. Some things you probably didn’t know about me is I am an avid collector of Presidential campaign buttons. I actually enjoy sports video games, I DJ weddings and corporate functions and I have a Black Lab that my wife thinks I care about more then her, and a Schipperke that we rescued from the Animal Shelter. I also volunteer for The Hillside Food Outreach and deliver food to the needy each month. It's so great to connect with you every morning and hopefully Suzy and I make your morning a little more bearable. Oh and by the way, "Thanks for turning us on"...and just remember, "Stay Thirsty My Friends"....
