On-Air Weekdays 3p-7p and weekend middays.I'm now in my 25th year as the Gater's Music Director/Afternoon Drive Air Talent. I was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and raised in Sarasota. I graduated from Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa (KDIC-FM) and paid my radio dues in Sarasota/St. Petersburg (WQSR), Gainesville (WGVL), and Orlando (WORJ-Zeta7, WDIZ and WLOQ.) From 1981 to 1991 I lived in Hawaii and worked at KPOI-98 Rock "The Rock You Live On" and KHFX "Hawaii's Classic Rock." I did my first show on the Gater April 13, 1991 broadcasting from an old funeral home just off Orange Avenue in Ft. Pierce.

I live steps from the beach on Singer Island with my cats Bibsey, Angus, and Tipsy. You'll hear The Allman Brothers and The Grateful Dead along with Pat Metheny, Little Feat, Santana and Pink Floyd always spnning at my place. People often hear me say "It'll be Fun!" and that sums it up nicely. Remember that though short in stature Warren Haynes is a towering Fire-God who looks down upon us mere mortals and laughs and Derek Trucks is truly "The Annointed One."
