The first time I got involved in radio production was in 1991 at college when a friend and I joined up at our college radio station. What can I say? I was hooked! I loved hauling my favorite records & CDs to the station to spin for whoever happened to tune in. In July 2002, with a little luck and a load of volunteer hours under my belt, I earned a slot in the schedule, and thus began Retro Red-Eye Express!
