12 Things You Don’t Need To Know About Me

November 19, 2013

I don’t usually do stupid stuff like this but I got talked into it this time.

I’m supposed to post 12 things that people may not already know about me on my Face Book wall.  Then I’m supposed to choose a number between 1 – 11 and everyone who ‘likes’ this post has to post about themselves—However in this case, I don’t care so you can pick your own number, (mine is 12 I think).  Anyway if you happen to like this post here, go ahead and click like and then you are forced to join in the fun—whatta concept!

OK, Here goes:


# 1: I spent the better part of 40 years in cities like Lawrence, Topeka, KC, Louisville and Orlando and during all that time I never worked a day.  It wasn’t work, it was fun!


# 2: During that 40 years I always went by my real name on the radio.


# 3: Used to be 5’10”


# 4: Most rock stars were good people but the biggest asshole I ever interviewed on air was George Thorogood—still bothers me.  Favorite interview had to be David Lee Roth.


# 5: Was an avid stamp and coin collector as a kid and I had pretty good collections especially stamps.  They’re still in the garage.


# 6: Was the biggest nerd until I started high school sports (not complaining).


# 7: Never made Eagle scout (5 merit badges shy, damn it).

# 8: My cat is named Knucklecat, because he is.


# 9: Never been a long range planner.  Think back 5 or 10 years.  Did any of your predictions back then happen?!  Things change fast, you gotta be ready with Plan B, C and D—be versatile.

# 10: I love to putz around in the garden but have been known to kill a few bushes.


# 11: I love history and geography.  We must remember and respect our history but also learn from the past and look forward to the future.  As for geography, what if the GPS goes out or the internet is down or maybe the lights just go out and don’t come back on?!  Maps don’t lie.


# 12: It has been a tough couple years for me dealing with family losses—my girlfriend, my mother and so many friends I’ve lost count.  But these challenges have certainly made me stronger and better able to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  I’m still sorting it out but everything does happen for a reason and I’ll let ya know!
