I’m a Cubs fan from Evansville, IN with a passion for radio and my Boston Terrier. When I was nine years old we came home from a midnight mass on Christmas Eve and found that someone had robbed us. They stole every present and a bunch of stuff from our house. There was one small package that was actually hidden back in the corner behind the tree, which turned out to be for me. It was a Donny and Marie Osmond wireless microphone that would connect to an AM radio. I set up a little radio studio in my mom and dad’s walk-in closet and ran wires through the house with speakers so they could listen to my show. My studio is a little bit bigger now, but I’m still just a big kid doing what I love to do.
