I’m a long time Billings resident (though I’ve had brief stints in Washington and Wyoming). I jumped into radio in high school in the late 70s and have never looked back. My favorite thing about radio is that it is still a “one on one” medium. Whatever I talk about is going straight to you and then you can form your own opinion. I consider myself the most slightly below average guitar player in Billings. Thankfully, The 7th Avenue Band keeps me around as a member. My downtime has always been my wife and four kids--who mean the world to me. I love all music but classic rock on The Hawk is where it's at! Hope to see you around town.
