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. Recently I had the honor of bring inducted into the Cajun French Music Hall of Fame. Plus, I was humbled to be voted the Best Radio Dj by the listeners and readers of Lagniappe Magazine. I'm married to my beautiful bride Christie and we have 5 children and 5 grandchildren with one on the way! 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!
