I've pretty much done nothing but radio, and I've been here at WPDH for a good part of my adult life. Many of those years were spent playing the music I've grown up with and loved forever on the midday show. At the end of 2012, I was asked to fill in on the morning shift for a couple of weeks, which sounded about as appealing as walking on hot coals. But, I loved it! And I've been doing it ever since. First with the great, late Mark Cooper, and now with self-proclaimed radio legend Boris. Working mornings lets me still play and hear the music, but I also get to interact with the listeners, which is one of the coolest parts of the job. That and the working with a radio legend thing.
