Here's one way to feel real old--start writing a biography that says
"since before the turn of the century". Unfortunately, I don't have
a choice in the matter.
Since before the turn of the century, I've been at Q107-WMQT.since
September 1988, in fact. Born in Marquette, I decided to return
home following too many years of school at Michigan State and an
illustrious career in TV in Flint. He hasn't regretted it since.
A local history buff and avid summer beach-goer, I have what someone
once described as "the world's strangest collection of interests",
including photography, cooking, writing, running, old-time radio,
Looney Tunes, and zydeco music. I'm also very involved in many
local organizations, including positions on the boards of directors
for the Marquette County History Museum, the March of Dimes, and
NMU's student radio station, WUPX. And, in my spare time, I'm also
an avid non-smoker.
I seem to be able to retain obscure facts about movies, as well;
probably a good thing, seeing as how I've been asking movie trivia
questions on the air since 1991. And if you must know, my favorite
movie of all time is the original "King Kong". And no, I'm not
quite sure why.
I live in Marquette with the lovely and buff Loraine, a converted
Troll. In fact, neither of us would live anywhere else.
More to come......
