98 The Beach

Weekend Host

Tell us about yourself:  Born and bred on “The Rock” I’m the youngest of a brood of youngsters from Bob & Marge. I’m a St. John’s “Corner Boy” with roots in “The Bay”. I’ve done time at CHUM, Newcap and Newfoundland Broadcasting in St. John’s and after I ran out of radio stations to work for in St. John’s I decided to try my luck in “Canada” proper.

I usually spend my spare time going through boxes of dusty records at flea markets and antique stores looking for wax gems. I also spend too much money buying old turntables and record players. My pride and joy is a 1905 Edison Diamond Disc Player, so if you know anyone with Diamond Discs for sale….you know where I am.

I am also an avid “worm drowner” and plan on spending a lot of time looking to see what kind of critters I can pull out of the twin lakes.
Speaking of critters, my fiancé and I are also busy raising two young adults. My parents promise me they eventually move out and make their own money.

If you want to know more, tune in!
