I have been working WNAW since 1968, doing just about every job there is. I graduated from Drury High School and served in the US Air Force from 1961 to 1965. First radio job in 1965 was in Presque Isle, Maine and I moved back to the Berkshires in 1967. Things I love: family, radio, long fast bike rides, cutting wood, skating and working out at the gym.
