I was born the third child of ten on December 28th 1958. Half raised in Knox County. I say half raised because I ran off and married before my mom & dad had a chance to finish. The best parents a boy could have did their best with what they had to work with. I graduated from high school in Knoxville in four terms. The terms were Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon and Fords. I have a degree. I think it’s about 98.6. I also have a black belt, and a brown belt. I swap them out depending on what I’m wearing. I love people & I love good music. With a great love for bluegrass music I volunteered at WDVX. It was to my surprise when Tony Lawson invited me to begin hosting the Rise -N- Shine show each weekday morning. I’ve been in hog heaven ever since! I love my job & the listeners are great. They just love the music like I do. I am a big fan of WDVX and proud to be a part of what the station does for East Tennessee. WDVX brings a slew of music lovers together with the format we offer. When I’m not at the station I am a self-employed construction worker specializing in home repair and remodeling. I enjoy church and church functions. I have one other hobby, raising chickens!
