I was born and raised in the Grand Rapids Area. I started working in radio in Whitehall in 1985. Went back to Grand Rapids for less than a year and got a better gig in Muskegon in September of 1986. I also worked at a few restuarants and in construction while going to school before going full time in radio.
I started rockin' with WMRR in March of 2009 and never looked back! I always loved rock music and finally get to work with it everyday!
New York can be a dangerous place for pedestrians. You could get hit by a taxi, mugged or knocked unconscious by a flying mattress. That very thing happened to Jesse Scott Owen as he was making his way through Manhattan to catch a subway to get to class at Kings College. Witnesses said the futon mattress fell from a height of 30 stories and could have been blown off a nearby rooftop spa by high winds. All Owen recalls was getting hit on the head with something and then waking up as people were easing him onto the mattress to rest. (Convenient!) He was released from the hospital but suffered a sprained neck and possibly a herniated disc.
