From the moment I saw the cover of "Destroyer" by KISS I was hooked! I made the decision to get into Rock radio and that is where I have spent the past three decades, on the radio talking about the bands we love and sharing stories from the studios to the shows. I have gone from growing up in a small town in Connecticut to interviewing Jimmy Page, Ozzy, Eddie Van Halen, Steven Tyler, and countless others.
