Five Things You May Not Know About Me:

  1. I have researched Dayton's poet Paul Laurence Dunbar until I know him better than any living person. I've written a play about Dunbar and am developing a Web site about his life and work.
  2. I've studied piano and voice and have sung in various choirs. My favorite performance was singing in Carmina Burana with the Springfield Symphony.
  3. I have worked as a professional photographer and also had numerous photography exhibitions in galleries around the area.
  4. I haven't watched television in over a decade and this has had a powerful influence on my personality and the way I view the world.
  5. When I began working for the radio station, it was located in the basement of Hills and Dales shopping center. When my program ended, I would flip a switch that took the station off the air for the night. We've come a long way since then!
