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!
Carjackers, unable to drive stick shift, fail to steal Corvette
By Isolde Raftery, Staff Writer, NBC News
Randolph Bean of Oviedo, Fla., had pulled over late Sunday night to text message his wife when two would-be carjackers approached his sporty yellow Corvette.
One, holding a gun, forced him to the ground while the other hopped in the driver’s seat, Bean, 51, told WKMG Local 6.
But there was a problem: The aspiring carjacker didn’t know how to start Bean’s car, a 2002 Millennium Yellow Z06 Corvette. (The car, used, sells for about $19,000.)
"The guy started screaming at me, 'How do I start the car?'" Bean told WKMG. Finally, the other guy, still holding Bean at gunpoint, hollered back, “It’s a stick!”
“I had to tell him four different times that you have to push in the clutch because it’s a standard transmission,” Bean told myfoxorlando.com.
The two assailants – Bean said they were handsome young men -- ultimately ran away with his phone, wallet and keys. The wallet, he said, was special because his wife made it.
“My first thought was I guess we don’t have driver’s ed in school anymore because no one knows how to drive a stick,” he told myfoxorlando.com. “And my second thing was, ‘Don’t shoot me because you can’t start the car! I am trying to help you out here.’”
