It's hard to believe it's been over 25 years since I started delivering the news at KOEL-AM! We have seen and heard a lot of changes over that time. Many friendly voices/faces have come and gone. And on a personal note, for my wife and I, it has been 40+ years of wedded bliss, both of our daughters are grown and gone, and the family continues to evolve. And I still take a little time each year to play tennis, take pictures (most of them during our vacation, to scenic midwest destinations), cheer on the Packers, watch a few movies, and attend an occasional rock concert with my best friend: my wife! Thanks to all of you faithful listeners over the years; I hope to be your morning (radio) companion for years to come!
