I’m a 25 year veteran of news and talk radio, a writer, a news junkie, and a former child actor. This picture is from my first job at the age of 3.
I have been writing since I small child. As a teen I wrote hundreds of short stories and poems – and burned them all, certain no one would want to read them. In my 20s I saw the foolishness of that act and began to keep my stories in manila folders in a cardboard file box. (I still have it). When I was a stand up comic a yellow legal pad and a black Bic felt tip pen were my preferred method for writing – a red felt tip was kept handy for editing.
In my 30s and 40s I filed thousands of news stories, and my work had the permanence of newspaper in Fish & Chips shop. Although the crew I worked with won numerous Edward R. Morrow and Mark Twain awards for our work – and we were named the top afternoon news cast in San Francisco.
I really don’t know what I would do without my writing, and as this blog has grown I have had the chance to share some of my stories about growing up and my Radio Daze and any damn thing that catches my fancy.
Thanks for reading – I hope you enjoy the view from where I’m sitting.
