Hey y'all. This Cajun Boy was born and raised right here in Southwest Louisiana, and I’ve lived here in Lake Charles most of my life. I went to Lagrange High (Geaux Gators) and McNeese State University in Lake Charles. I started in radio in 1990, and have been on three local frequencies: 99.5FM, 92.9FM, and 1470AM for my whole career. I love Country and Cajun music, bass fishing, cooking, drinkin’ beer in my backyard bar, and having a great time with my family and friends just like we do in SWLA. My man crush is George Strait, and Sara Evans will marry me one day! So tune in every weekday morning because you never know what this Cajun Country boy will say or do! Laissez les bons temps rouler, SHA!
