I started my radio career as a 4 year old, yelling, "FORE!" for a commercial my dad was producing. Right now I'm thinking a lot about Christmas as I was growing up. A family of six kids in a big ol' house in Northern Michigan. Lots of snow, lots of shoveling, and lots of noisy holidays around the dinner table. I learned a whole lot more about family when I received a kidney from my sister. December 21, 2012. That's a second birthday, my new axis day, a second Christmas... whatever you want to call it. It makes December a month to be thankful and to celebrate life.
