I was born in San Antonio, TX right before Richard Nixon resigned. I was raised in the Free State of McMullen County in the metropolis of Tilden, Texas. I laugh when people tell me they're from a small town. My hometown has 425 people in it and I graduated in a class of 13 students. It doesn't get much smaller than that, and we didn't have a Dairy Queen.I went to college at Texas A&M-Kingsville (A&I) and got a B.S. in Agribusiness (Class of 2000). That is not a very common degree with radio folks, but what the heck. I got my start at KTAI, the college radio station at TAMUK. Here's their website: KTAI 91.1.I've been getting paid to talk on the radio and play music since July, 1996. I've been with K-99 since January, 2000.I'm an 8th generation Texan.I am Leighann's daddy.
This is where I will post all things outdoors.

I enjoy fishing, too. Check out the monster I reeled in
using my fancy fishing pole in Tilden on the Frio River.
