Here it is, November already. Where has the time gone? Some things to think about while I'm thinking about them. 1) How 'bout them Chiefs? Only one loss to this point and they lead the league in scoring, Mahomes is leading the way with touchdown passes, he has a huge arsenal of receivers to throw to...Hill, Kelci, Watkins, Conley, Hunt. I don't see how defenses can completely shut the Chiefs receiving corp down. There are so many weapons and Mahomes can stretch a play out so long, someone is bound to get open. The offensive line is strong enough to keep their blocks that long, too. LET'S GO CHIEFS!!!. Unfortunately, David Beatty got the axe at KU. He will coach the remainder of the season. Speaking of KU, the basketball season is officially underway now and the Jayhawks are the pre-season #1 team. ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK!!!! Okay, Christmas is just around the corner. Have you put your tree up yet. As I was growing up, we never put up our tree until the week after Thanksgiving. I think that is early enough. Call me Grinch but the day before Christmas Eve is none too soon. Maybe it's just me, but all the decorating is not what makes it Christmas. Our Lord and Savior being born is good enough for me. 'Nuff said. Oh by the way, have a great Thanksgiving, too.
My radio career started right here in Hutchinson back in 1979, between my freshman and sophomore years in college. I was studying Communications with emphasis on Radio/TV Broadcasting. During my career, I've worked in Hutchinson, Wichita, Emporia, and Salina. Got my first job on a country station in 1986 when KSKU in Hutchinson was sold and became KZSN. We moved the studio to Wichita. From Wichita I moved to Emporia worked for a short time before moving back to Hutch. After 3 years, I moved to Salina. After about 6 years there, I moved back to Hutch. I llive here now for 17 years. I married my wife, Julie, 12 years ago. When I'm not working you can find me watching tv at home, playing bingo, playing golf, or riding my Goldwing Trike. I'm a member of the GWRRA (Goldwing Road Riders Assn.) I began doing public address announcing for the Hutch High Salthawks during the football season and will continue during the basketball season. I've been at Country 102.9, this time, since 2000. Really enjoy what I do and I love Country music. My favorite artists are Garth Brooks, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert and as I go back a few years with a classic artist...I love Johnny Horton. I plan on continuing doing this as long as I enjoy doing it or until people around this building don't want me around anymore. They'll have to pry the headphones off my ears to get me out of here.
