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!

Gentlemen, put down that razor! There's money in them there follicles! Cornett-IMS, a Kentucky-based ad agency, came up with the hair-brained scheme called Beardvertising, which involves paying men with hirsute chins $5 a day to wear tiny ads within their facial foliage. And famed root beer maker A&W is already on board. "Everybody loves beards," says Cornett-IMS's Whit Hiler. "We're getting a ton of emails from guys with epic beards that want to host beardboards, and we're actually in talks with some brands that want to be Beardvertisers." As long as they stay away from commercializing back hair, we'll all be fine.

A couple years back, a Detroit resident tweeted that since Philadelphia had a statue of Rocky, Detroit obviously needed a statue of Robocop. Predictably, someone took to Kickstarter, and about $67,000 of the statue's $50K budget was raised. Now we have an update: Fred Barton sculpted the statue, which was then passed on to Across the Board Creation for 3-D scanning, digital enlarging, physical fabrication, and assembly in foam, wax, clay and steel. Now it's headed to Venus Bronze Works in Detroit for casting and manufacturing. Now all Detroit needs is financial solvency and a few dozen or so real-life Robocops, and they'll be set!
