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!

Can you believe that people in England are calling New College Nottingham's degree in heavy-metal music a waste of time? OK, it might not sound as weighty as, say, economics, but what could be better than spending two years shredding your Fender and perfecting your hard-core rocker look? Critics worry that the course won't enhance employment prospects for young headbangers, but honestly, if you've got to choose a career path, following Alice Cooper into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has got to beat spending your days handcuffed to a desk. The founder of the nearly $9,000-per-year program calls it "academically rigorous" — it includes everything from songwriting to onstage performances. That just has to mean there are pyrotechnics.

The idea that smashing two things together automatically makes them even greater is being put to the test by the first annual "World Naked Star Wars Gardening Day." It just so happens that "World Naked Gardening Day" and "Star Wars Day" (tagline: "May the fourth be with you") fall on the same day, so columnist Ritch Duncan from "Dumb As A Blog" decided to combine them, naturally. It's not that nudity isn't a great idea — don't be silly — but we were already a bit hesitant about naked gardening what with all the crouching, digging and pulling. Throw a Jar Jar mask in there, and we'll be leaving, thank you.
