Cincinnati Radio, my
new Arcadia book of photographs,
is NOW AVAILABLE!
for more information!
I’m a radio guy. This website is about radio--for the most part.
It has a little history, a Cincinnati hook and some stuff about me as I try to stay upright on what Fred Allen called "The
Treadmill to Oblivion." I was "bitten by the radio bug" when I was a kid but didn't serious consider
a career in the business until halfway through my senior year in high school. I love the sounds and nuances of
radio. I love the occasional pauses. I love the pictures it paints upon the canvas of the imagination—in
fact, one of my radio programs is even titled Theatre of the Mind. I love music on the radio.
I still love to DX (ask your grandpa what that means!) I collect old radios, I research its history
and even co-founded and oversee a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving its history. I love the
now-forgotten concept of "voices in the ether" and warmly remember those dark, star-filled nights when distant
cities would come booming in on my late-grandpa's old Zenith console and wonder how amazing it must have been for a 1932-era
farmer, tied to his farm during the depression, must’ve felt to hear that same distant city over his farm-battery set.
I’ve worked in radio for nearly 25-years. I’ve won some awards, done some cool things,
made lots of friends and interviewed some famous people along the way. Thanks to radio and some
understanding family and friends, I’ve had a blast so far. I hope it continues for awhile longer! So
thanks for hanging out here for a few minutes and if you have any comments or questions or just want to talk "radio"
(opposed to "talk radio"), drop me a line.
