I'm 95.3 WBCK's Brand Manager, and Operations Manager for Townsquare Media's Battle Creek Stations and host of the 95.3 WBCK Morning Show. I've been with the station for 29 years. I'm also a professional musician, playing the trumpet and sax in the Gull Lake Jazz Orchestra, Otsego Jazz Ensemble, Lew Boyd Band and the Kalamazoo Big Band, (which I co-lead.) You might have seen me on stage at the Great Escape Stage Company, Marshall Civic Players, and the Battle Creek and Kalamazoo Civic Theaters. My wife Debbie and I live east of Climax (the Greater West Leroy Metropolitan Area) with our dogs Mugsie, Scruffy, and Ellie and cats Lenny and Earl. I'm a big Tiger fan have a huge vegetable garden, and love local history....and the Twilight Zone!
