After graduating from Ithaca College in '73 with a Bachelor's in Communication. I put the business of radio on the back burner and from '73 through '78 I tried playing rock star in an acoustic trio. Great times but not much cash coming in, but one of the highlights was hooking up with one of our groupies who's been my wife now for 38 years!! We have 3 grown kids Matt, EJ, and Allie. During our playing days, I also worked part time on the air at a great rock station, WCMF in Rochester, NY. I was hired as the evening jock right here at I-95 early in '79 and simply.......never left. I-95/WRKI is a very "special" radio station born on Christmas Eve in '76 and I'm proud to say, I'll be starting up my 35th year at this heritage rock station....20 of those years as the morning show host. The most frequently asked question about the morning show is, "How do you get up that early every morning?" I'll tell you how........I have the best job in the world! Every day for 4 hours, we laugh, we make our listeners laugh, play rock n' roll, and get the opportunity to interview top notch rock stars and nationally know stand up comedians. Hosting the I-95 Morning Show is like playing in a big boy sandbox and I wouldn't change a thing. I am one very lucky guy!!
