I'm originally from Chicago but moved to the Panhandle in 1986. I graduated from Canyon High School and went on to Amarillo College to learn all I can about radio. I've been in the business for 18 years and hope for many more. I love music, baseball, and the Investigation Discovery Channel. I have one daughter, Faith which you'll probably hear about on the air, one dog, Chipper, who is a Puggle, and Twilight the cat. You can find me at home cooking. I love to cook. I also love my Air Fryer and Instant Pot! What else does one need?

We May Be Able To Get Allsup’s Burritos Soon In Amarillo

This is going to be a yearly reminder. It should go without saying but be kind on Valentine's Day. I am not talking about kindness to your date. That should be a given. I mean to anyone in the service industry.
