Started my fun-filled Radio life when I was 16 growing up in Colorado! Worked and played at many great radio stations coast to coast. Living one day at a time, with a fresh baked cookie... Okay, and with a coffee and a beer later in the day. But I promise to take my vitamins and of course I love my country music! The best there is right?
