Weekdays (5AM - 9AM) Saturday (10AM - 3PM)

I love livin’ in the South Bay!  I was born and raised in San
Jose (Leland High/San Jose State), as were my son and daughter.

My first concert @12 years old:  AC/DC opening for Aerosmith (still my

I played lead guitar and keys in local bands like Hot Ice, Starrider, Alibi,
and 3 Dicks & A Jane at South Bay clubs like Mountain Charley’s, Britannia
Arms, and Keystone Palo Alto. I even played solo piano at a few thousand Happy
Hours in the Hedley Club at Hotel De Anza in San Jose.

I love working at KFOX because it’s a thrill for me to play guitar on the air
every morning, the staff and listeners love to rock, and we all still love
livin’ in the South Bay for the sun, fun, short ride to the beach, and late
night runs to Taco Bravo on Bascom :)
