Although, I am not an active musician, many of the local artists won’t let me call myself a former musician! I have been a local musician who has played the trombone with many local, regional and nationally known acts, such as Eddie Baker’s New Breed Orchestra, Threatening Weather, and Mass Transit with Steven Harvey. (Steven was murdered in 1980.) I have also been a music editor for a local newspaper, “The Kansas City Globe.”

I have long believed in community radio. It is the purest form of radio-grassroots and locally based. Community radio is all about people with a deep knowledge and passion for music being given the freedom to express themselves on the air. I program for people with wide, eclectic tastes who like to explore the musical realms.
