So a little about myself, huh? Well, I'm a pretty simple dude. I'm a lifelong East Texan, born and raised in Lindale. I have the ultimate best friend in my black lab Buddy. I tell people he's my son and friends laugh because I will call him "sir." As far as outside the radio thing, I'm a huge Cowboys fan, love going to the movies, enjoy many different types of music and I am a collector of Transformers. Yes, I collect the toys, own the original 4 seasons of the 80's cartoon on DVD, the animated movie from '86, all of the current movies, the video games, shirts, my car even has an Autobot emblem on the hood. So, yes, I'm a fan. Thanks for visiting and join me every Saturday night. I talk about anything...East Texas Events, latest movies, whatever. You can crack open a beer and I'll take care of the rock.
