Bio

I was raised on radio, singing on my parents radio program in the Deep South since I was three.  I'm a lifelong writer and broadcaster, working on the air for decades. Today I'm a voice for KCET television in Hollywood, though I live in northern California. (Bless technology. I record from a nearby studio.) I write often about family and food and my family's history in Southern Gospel and Rockabilly music. I'm writing a collection of short stories and working toward (fingers crossed) producing a play, The Glory Road, with the help of a talented director, Greg Zerkle. Updates at www.thegloryroad.com.

My radio buddy, Dave Williams, and I began a website a while back, thinking we might turn out a book from our unique perspective (and we still might) both of us having been disc jockeys during and after the infamous Age of Aquarius.  (www.theagingofaquarius.com)
Among other subjects, we write about what it’s like to be this age, being grandparents today, after our colorful past as part of the groundbreaking, ground-shaking, rock and roll, 60’s and 70’s youth movement.
