A long time ago, on a cold winter's night, in a hospital that is now the Ravalli County Administration Center, I was born. I remember listening to the radio throughout my life here in the Bitterroot Valley and was really impressed (as much as a little kid can be impressed) when Hamilton got its own station, KLYQ, in 1961. Little did I know that I would spend most of my adult working life at the station. Writing and drawing my way through school and college, I found that talking was fun, too, and radio obliged. Now with KLYQ's recent change to Oldies, it's like I'm young again... then I look in the mirror.
