I have had the pleasure of being a part of WAER going back to my days as a student at Syracuse in the early 1990s. I began working in the sports department eventually getting a chance to call SU basketball and football games. However...my other passion of music came into play when I became the Music Director shortly after graduating in May of 1993. I have been privileged to host the afternoon jazz program from 12-4 since the summer of 1993 interviewing some of the biggest names in jazz along the way. Getting a chance to meet many of my listeners along the way has been a true joy.
My musical tastes (besides jazz) cover many genres from indie rock, to some old school Sam Cooke, to admittedly being a huge 80s music fan. I'm also a sports ennthusiast ranking the New York Mets and the St. Louis Rams as the teams I rout for the hardest. Weather wise...I'm definitely a warm weather person and the summer season here in Central New York can be downright beautiful. Visiting some of the great cities in Europe and one day writing a screenplay are two things that are definitely on my bucket list.
