Weekdays (3PM – 7PM) Sundays (9AM – 2PM)

I moved to the Bay Area in 1989 and have been fortunate to be a part of the in rock radio scene since. As avid golfer, skiing fanatic, and cycling maven, I have found that the Bay Area fits my personality and lifestyle perfectly. My favorite golf course is Callippe Preserve, my favorite ski mountain is Heavenly, and I like riding my road bike along the coast, or exploring trails in the hills above Los Gatos on my mountain bike. I live in Pleasanton and love it because I am between San Jose and San Francisco, and whether I am going to a Sharks game at The Tank or a concert in the city it’s the same distance, plus I am an hour closer to Tahoe! Some of my most memorable concerts were seeing the Eagles at the Shoreline Amphitheater in 1994 during their “Hell Freezes Over Tour”- easily the most people I have seen at the Shoreline. I also “got lucky”, and was able to attended one of the 20 sold out shows Tom Petty did at the Fillmore in 1997.

LA Rams Godawful Uniforms

I don’t mind saying it, I kind of like the Rams uniforms they wore Thursday night against the 49ers. They are part of the Thursday Night Football  “Color Rush” limited series jerseys.   Nike insists that the Jersey are gold, but I was thinking day-glo Saturn Yellow. The ironic thing, the Rams …
