I've been at Lite 98.7 for 15 years. Way back in 1993 is when I began, doing overnights before moving to Nite Lite and then mid-days. My favorite part of my show is the Lite Cafe, when I play lunchtime requests and get to talk to our listeners. Read any of my blogs and you'll quickly discover my fondness for cupcakes, gourmet popcorn, pizza and key lime pie. I left the Mohawk Valley for 5 years to work at our stations in Albany, which was great, but like Dorothy said in "The Wizard of Oz, " there's no place like home. "Hell's Kitchen" and "The Most Dangerous Catch" are two of my favorite TV shows but nothing beats a good book. Thanks for leaving on the Lite!
