Hi everybody. I am your Afternoon Drive Home host. I also happen to be the music director. I've been on the air at WBKR since 1988, minus about 6 months. I like road trips and visiting small towns in other states. I'm the biggest college basketball fan I know. I like chicken, spaghetti, shortbread cookies, brussel sprouts, tomato soup, and hummus...but not necessarily at the same time. L.A. Confidential is still my all time favorite movie and I still have only visited 44 of the 50 states. Peace.
