I’ve been in love with Radio since I was a small child crawling around studios where my father was an announcer.

At home, around 5 yrs old,  I would play 78RPM records and talk into the speaker while changing the record. I thought people could hear me on their radios.

My first station was a REMCO Radio station I got for Christmas and came with a long wire that reached the next door neighbors kids.

Then came my Pirate Radio years, in my teens, with a transmitter kit to broadcast on the AM radio band.  Strung a long wire in the trees for a antenna and I was ON THE AIR!

The first real job in Radio was at KXLY AM in Spokane, WA.  I was still in high school and did a weekend shift.

Soon I moved into Television and spent 30 wonderful years in News, Production, and Management, in Seattle, at KOMO TV, KIRO TV, KSTW TV.

In 1996 I started one of the first internet radio stations, PUREGOLD ROCK N ROLL. Later becoming PUREGOLD OLDIES.
