Music and Radio are two of my biggest passions and I am lucky to be able to combine both in my profession. I have been a professional on air personality for close to a quarter of a century and owe this to being introduced to music at a young age. As a boy I would search the late nite AM airwaves for signals from distant cities and can't believe that I am now one of the radio voices I heard. My hobbies are playing the guitar, poker, sports and gardening.

Butte Spay-Neuter Task Force hosting fundraiser June 22 &23 at Elks
The Butte Spay and Neuter Task Force has been hard at work around town. You may have even been to one of their spay and neuter or vaccination clinics. Over the years they have sterilized and uncountable number of pets here in the Mining City and have prevented what can only be estimated at thousands of unwanted dogs and cats from winding up on the streets or in the shelter. Even with that number, their "task force" in numbers is relatively few. Their work is noble. Their work is certainly humane. And their work is also expensive.
