    I grew up in La Crescent, MN.   I have been doing radio since 1972.  My father also worked at WKTY and started when the station went on the air in 1948.  I do the Lead Balloon Show weekday mornings from 6:00 to 9:00.  I call it “the world’s worst radio show.”   My wife’s name is Dawn and we will have been married 40 years on March 27, 2016.  We have two children, Erin and Patrick, and we have three grandchildren.  I like to cook and enjoy fishing and spending time with friends and family, especially my grandkids.  I also do play by play of high school and college sports which is my true passion.  I have really enjoyed what I do for all these years.  My father and I were inducted into the Wisconsin Broadcasters Hall of Fame in 2009.
