It's hard to believe it's been over 25 years since I started delivering the news at KOEL-AM! We have seen and heard a lot of changes over that time. Many friendly voices/faces have come and gone. And on a personal note, for my wife and I, it has been nearly 40 years of wedded bliss, both of our daughters are grown and gone, and the family continues to evolve. And I still take a little time each year to play tennis, take pictures (most of them during our vacation, to scenic midwest destinations), cheer on the Packers, watch a few movies, and attend an occassional rock concert with my best friend: my wife! Thanks to all of you faithful listeners over the years; I hope to be your morning (radio) companion for years to come!
