I have been in the music business since the late 70’s and my philosophy is to bring together musicians and everyday people to keep the inspiration and imagination of the music alive and well. The telling of a story through a song or album has an impact and long lasting effects in our daily lives. I try to promote these effects in hopes that people will continue to use music to learn from, to entertain, inspire, and open new doors in their lives.
I have been a Radio Host/DJ going on five years, and unlike most DJs today I do not spin CDs. I spin Vinyl Records, there is a certain feeling that one gets from playing vinyl but that’s a topic for another day. The other thing you may notice is I will play an entire album side verses just a track from any given artist. I believe whether or not an album is conceptual there is an underlying theme to it, and one cannot get to the bottom of it through one song.
