WHTQ WHOO WMMO WDBO Orlando Magic Radio Network
I got my first taste of radio when I took a tour of KBBQ in Ventura, CA. in 1975 and I was hooked. After a very unsuccessful time in retail I made the choice to attend Vance Tyler’s ACI (broadcasting) “school” in Daytona. From there I found my way to WHTQ/WHOO/WMMO where I was hired by JT Stevens. I did the really hard stuff like making new labels for the CD’s in the air studios, making sure Bob Rose had his chicken wings, Mark Samansky had video tape for his camera, and Chris Rhoads had the latest hockey scores. I was eventually offered a full time position in engineering by Steve Fluker. (Never touch the copper loop that goes from the ATU to the tower). In 1998 I approached Pete Spriggs (PD at WDBO) and he gave me a chance to be a board op and produce a couple of live shows. (The Gordon Brothers Week In Review, Inside Magic, and Radio Sci Fi). I found my way to the Bob Rose Show from 1999 to 2001. I also worked for the Orlando Magic Radio Network with Dennis Neumann, Jeff Turner, Richie Adubato, Will Perdue, Dante Marchatelli, and Scott Anez. In 2007 I was given the opportunity to return home to Los Angeles where I work for Entravision Communications (Indie 103.1, KLYY 97.5, and KSSE 107.1).
