Born in Philly, raised in the northern burbs.
Michael Jackson's Thriller with a big picture of MJ on the record. I'm not proud of this.

A Clockwork Orange
I have never played in a band because I have no musical ability whatsoever. I tried to learn guitar when I was younger and I failed miserably.
When my favorite radio station WDRE announced that they were going off the air, I visited the station and got bit by the radio bug. Shortly thereafter I applied for an internship with the ex-DRE folks (including Jim McGuinn) at Y100. The rest is history.
I am obsessed with Transformers toys.
I've never had a cavity.
What the T. stands for.
Y100 from 1997-2005, Y100Rocks.com from 2005-2006, KYW Newsradio in 2006, Y-Rock On XPN from 2006 until I retire in the distant future (now that it's been published, I have total job security, right?)
I was a ceramics major at Tyler School of Art for a time, then I majored in Y100 at Penn State Abington (which means I just barely got through school while focusing on my internship and job).
