Hey y'all. Just a little about me! I 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'm married to my beautiful bride Christie, and we have five children. I love Country and Cajun music, bass fishing, cooking, drinkin’ beer in my bar, and having a great time with my family and friends just like we do in SWLA. My all-time favorite country artist is George Strait followed by Keith Whitley and Conway Twitty. My favorite new country artists include Luke Combs, Easton Corbin, and my boy Chris Young. Tune in every weekday morning because you never know what this Cajun Country boy will say or do! Laissez les bons temps rouler, sha!
