Weekdays & Saturdays 2pm - 6pm

Where were you born?

I was born on the back seat of a Greyhound bus rolling down Highway 41! Seriously, I’m a Buckeye, born and raised in Ohio. Originally from Elyria, I’ve lived most of my life in Lakewood.

What was your last non-radio job?

Cuyahoga County Board of Elections.  Very interesting and eye-opening!

How do you spend your time outside the station?

 I’m a typical family guy! I love my house. And we like to travel.

Who are your favorite Cleveland artists, past or present?

Probably the Raspberries!

What was your first concert?

Hmm… it was either Bette Midler or Seals & Crofts at Blossom. Neither was my choice because it was a school trip.

What is the first album you ever bought?

Oh, I know exactly which album it was. Beatles Revolver!

What are your favorite movies?

Let’s see… Among others, my favorites include Goodfellas, The Godfather, Mrs. Doubtfire, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Shawshank Redemption, Moonstruck, Jaws… the list goes on and on. But my all-time favorite is the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory with Gene Wilder. I’m serious. 

What are your favorite TV shows, past or present?

So many! Favorites include The Sopranos, Weeds, Breaking Bad, Stranger Things and more. I was really into the early days of Saturday Night Live too!

What is your favorite time-wasting website?

Without a doubt IMDB and YouTube. They’re addicting!

What is on your bucket list?

I really don’t have a bucket list, and I’m not a dare-devil, but we’re doing the donkey trip at the Grand Canyon next summer. People think we’re crazy, especially those who’ve never heard of it! I can’t wait.

Who are your heroes? 

No question… my wife, my kids and my parents.

What quotes do you live by?

“When things are too tough for everybody else, they’re just right for us!”

What brings you the greatest joy?


What is the best advice you’ve been given?

“No matter what happens, that’s just the way we planned it!”
