I am a Western New York native, born and raised in West Seneca and now living with my wife Maribeth, who is an R.N., on our 65-acre farm in Marilla. We do not have children but plenty of "kids" -- our cats, dog and horses. I have worked in Buffalo radio since 1975 and at Townsquare since 2001. Presently, I work just weekends and some fill-in on-air work. My main career is in law enforcement; I'm a mounted lieutenant, chaplain and instructor for the Erie County Sheriff's Office. And, yes, I am the guy famous for the signature radio sign-off, "God bless you, God bless America, never say never!"

My July 4th holiday is a little bit sadder this year. We lost an American original. The much loved Andy Griffith died yesterday morning. He was 86. Yes it's true, he lived a good and long life, yet there are certain folks who are just never supposed to leave us. He was one of them.
