Okay. So the powers that be want me to share a little bit about myself, which is difficult, because I just me so here goes….

I was born in Long Beach, California the son off a Navy Man. My family was originally from Maine, so when I was two and my dad was discharged from the Navy, they packed up the old family wagon and back to Maine we came.

I have always had a love for music, all kinds of music. I can probably name the song and who sang it on the first two or three notes., and in some cases the year it was released. This love of music came about when I was ten or so when I would take two cassette decks and “mix” songs and pretend I was the next Casey Kasem and dreamed of the fame and fortune of being a real live disk jockey. Luckily, 27 years ago someone took a chance and let this kid from California live part of his dream. I’m, however, still waiting for the fame and fortune part!!!

I am married( I am way luckier than she is) , 4 wonderful kids, 2 dogs, 2 cats, 10 fish and the occasional raccoon in the trash can!

Thanks for listening and sharing your love of music!!

Mike
