There are two things it seems everyone knows about San Diego: 1, that the weather is perfect; and 2, that KGB is the rock-solid rock station. It's one of a handful of radio stations in America that have been true to rock n roll…and no other format…for 4 non-stop decades. It's an honor and a thrill to be side by side with Coe Lewis doing mornings in this damn near perfect town! Coe will tell you…it's all about the KGB listeners. When you win, we win. It's up to you and to us to keep rock alive and well in San Diego!
Here's my radio deal: In the teenage years: Soldering iron in hand, built a 100 watt pirate station in Dix Hills, New York. A FCC visit to my parent's house ended the fun 3 months later. Comedy. After college and for 20 years (almost to the day) I was the WBAB/Long Island VP/Programming and Morning DJ. Favorite moment: The WBAB No-Skin, No-Win Tanning Contest. Judging by the babes who's pictures line the walls of KGB, I know you've witnessed some of those yourself.
The next decade was spent as Program Director and DJ at KGB's sister station, WAXQ, Q104.3/New York. Favorite moment: When the legendary WNEW-FM declared that rock was dead and that they were changing formats. We jumped in and went, over time, to #1 Adults in New York. Manhattan is a one-of-a kind place to live and work.
In 2008, I got hired as Program Director and Afternoon DJ at KLOS, to the north in LA. We had plenty of fun there as well, with KLOS being one of the few stations to share in KGB's legacy of 4 decades of rock loyalty. Got to love Southern California…no doubt!
It's the middle of 2012 and here we are. I'm hoping your support of rock in San Diego will bring the legendary KGB to even greater heights. We're all in this together!

There has been lots of drama recently about Chick-Fil-A, its president Dan Cathy, and the fast-food chain's documented financial backing of anti-gay Christian organizations.
First, The Jim Henson Company pulled their support. Then, Boston Mayor Tom Menino vowed to block the chicken sandwich maker from setting up shop in his city, and Chicago politicians made similar promises.
Despite these gestures, however, Chick-Fil-A seems to be unmoved, not backing down from its stance no matter the PR costs.
So when customers began showing up for an August 1st event that former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee had earlier hailed as "Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day," one man decided to take matters into his own hands and give the company a piece of his mind.
In a video posted to YouTube earlier today, a man named Adam Smith goes to the Chick-Fil-A drive-through, orders water and proceeds to bully the young female employee who serves him.
The video then went viral, and, according to a MarketWire statement, Smith was subsequently fired from his job as the CFO of Vante, Inc., a Tucson, Ariz., based medical device manufacturer.
