I know it's been awhile since I updated my rant. To be honest, I just really haven't had a lot to think about lately. Haven't even really had much of a chance to play golf. I know, a lot of people would say it's too hot to play golf. I'm not one of those people. When I'm playing golf, I don't really notice the temperature. My shirt can be soaked with sweat and when I stand over a putt, I have sweat running off the brim of my cap onto the golf ball, but I keep plugging along. However, summer is also the time of year for family vacations. Now, it's just my wife and me at home, so a family vacation pretty much just involves the two of us. We really haven't planned a vacation this year. The motorcycle needs some work which will take a little of any money we have set aside for vacation. Besides, since we have a trailer to pull behind the trike that folds out into a tent, we would like to go somewhere and spend the money for campsite with electric hook-up. My wife needs an air conditioner to camp out. We have that for the tent. I tell you, that's roughing it. So, who knows what we'll do. If you are planning a family vacation, please enjoy your time with family and above all, be safe. As Dale Evans would sing..."Happy Trails to you". 'Nuff said.
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.
