Life & Career Milestones

My path in life has been direct

  • 1.

    Didn't get into radio until he was 32 years old.

  • 2.

    Music was always a big part of his life; remembers his father coming home with The Beatles' records.

  • 3.

    Was always looking for something that would fulfill him creatively, but never really acted on it.

  • 4.

    Said for a long time, he was that person who would talk about his grand plans, and then waste his days away getting drunk at the bar.

  • 5.

    For a while, he was locked into a cycle of horrible factory jobs, where he'd go to work and think, "I just need to get through today."

  • 6.

    Says the minute he stumbled across radio, he finally recognized something that he loved, and he chased after it as hard as he could.

  • 7.

    His first radio job was at a tiny station in upstate New York, but he loved doing that just as much as he loves doing his acclaimed KCRW show.

  • 8.

    Says at the end of the day, it doesn't matter if anybody else believes in you, as long as you're comfortable with who you are.
