Image result for I' AM A GROWN UP


That song by the Beach Boys always makes me think about my childhood and trying to decide what I wanted to do as a grown up in a grown up world.

I recently had a friend ask me “if you weren’t in radio, what would you be doing”

I am a very lucky man who stumbled his way into a profession I love.   But I had to make a decision.   What would I do for the rest of my life?

If you ask kids now you would get answers like, A Doctor, A Nurse, A teacher, a soldier or A Computer programmer.

Not me.  Well maybe a member of the military, I did take two years of R.O.T.C.  But even though I have the utmost respect for our military it wasn’t the right fit for me.

When I was in elementary school I really thought I would be a weatherman.   I read books and every night watched the local weatherman looking a maps and flow charts.  Then I found out something, to be a weatherman you needed to be good at math!   So the closest I came to being a weatherman was doing a George Carlin impression.


My Mother was a nurse and that influenced me to consider becoming a repertory or physical therapist.   And as many times as I have had physical therapy I probably could be one today.

Quick story there:  I had a knee replacement several years ago and the P.T. is sometimes very painful.  One day I was going to a DR’s appointment and ran into the Physical Therapist who worked with me and he said “How’s that knee?  We beat the Hell out of you but you kept coming back”   I guess that was a ……. Compliment?

The only other job I have had in my adult life was being a convince store clerk.  To be honest I kind of enjoyed that job to.

But I got lucky and found my profession at the age of 16 but what if I had decided to stop radio what would I be doing?

That is a hard question to answer, because I have rarely even thought about it.   But I guess I would have to say that I might be in public relations or advertising in some way.

“WHEN I GROW UP TO BE A MAN” I want to be the mooring show host on KOOL 1039

Like I said, I am a lucky man
