The KSON Legendary Blog

    Weekends/Fill-In & Interactive Manager

    When I first came to KSON, the boss said he didn't want this to be just a "stepping stone" for me. I said it wouldn't be. Therefore, I was forced to stay forever.

    I've been at KSON since 1978. That's not a misprint.

    I've been on the air on KSON in about every part of the day there is, and then some.

    When I invented the Internet in 1991, I put the KSON web site online, and they said "just keep doing that little interweb thing you do." So whatever that is, I'm doing it.

    Today, I'm still on the air every-so-often, but my air-time changes a lot in order to make me difficult to find. So far, it's working.
