I came to El Paso in ’86 thinking I’d be here 2 years and move on. Still here! I grew up in San Diego surfing and riding my Dirt Bike. I still ride a Dirt Bike, but good surf is hard to come by in El Paso. I started at KLAQ as an overnight DJ, eventually forming a friendship with Big Al Jones and going on to do mornings on KLAQ ’87 - ’92. In 1995, I was given the opportunity to start a new station within our company, 93.1 KISS-FM. In 2003, I was asked to come back to KLAQ as Program Director. I am also Operations Manager for our group of stations. (KLAQ/KISS-FM/KROD)

I met my wife Barbara in El Paso and were married in 1997. We have a boy & a girl. I have many more children here at the station! I also received my Private Pilot’s license in 1997. I travel to San Diego & Austin to see family. I’m always happy to come back to El Paso and hear The Q! Thank YOU for Rockin’ with KLAQ!"

Bad Ass WWII Planes coming to El Paso!

 

I've been a WWII aircraft fan for a long time and never miss a chance to see these machines up close....trying to imagine what it was like to do battle back in the day.  The stories from the brave men never get tired either.  After all, they fought for us then and gave us the chance to live today.
