I’ve been involved with music literally from day one, since I was born into a musical family. I started singing professionally (well, I did get paid $50.00 for the first gig!) when I was 12 years old.
It’s fun for me to be given a certain amount of leeway as a host in order to bring my own insight and experiences to the music we play. Quite a few of these artists are either people I’ve enjoyed for a long time or in a number of cases, musicians I’ve either worked with or crossed paths with in some way in my life. And if you’ve listened to my show, you know it’s not hard for me to act somewhat ridiculously from time to time on the air. Okay, more than just time to time. No sense in my doing this if I can’t have fun with it.
When I’m not out on the road performing or at home writing, I spend my time either with my family and friends or on a tennis court or in a batting cage. Those are my refuges but being on stage performing is truly my life blood. Hope you’re enjoying my contributions to The Avenue. I know I am.
