Personal statement:

I was born in NYC, and first started listening to WFMU in the early 80's, after a friend who lived nearby showed me where the studio was, on campus in East Orange.

I once (late 80's) even got to run the WFMU studio mixer for a live on-air performance by the band Bobbo during a snowstorm, because the sound guy did not make it in that day. So you could say, WFMU and I go way way back.

My love of music is rooted in listening to my elders sing barbershop quartets, and in the LPs my Dad brought home from places like Colony Records in NYC. My late Uncle Paul Bacon created the album artwork for Riverside Records and others, working with Orrin Keepnews, and had a tremendous collection of Jazz albums...good stuff, heard often.

Big Planet Noise is my first foray into radio. I also now cohost a show on WXNA in Nashville that features live performances and interviews with local artists big and small. I currently call Nashville home.

I am so thrilled to be part of the Ichiban family!!
