Sandman

I can honestly say that I live and breathe 103GBF, and dammit it tastes a little funny sometimes! I have been a part of the rock station at 103.1 since 1980. I'm a very lucky person to do what I love for a living. I love new rock. I think it keeps you youthful in spirit. I can't imagine listening to nothing but songs from 20-30 years ago. It's like eating the same thing for lunch and dinner every day of your life! New is good. It kind of ties into my philosophy that tomorrow is going to be even better than life was today and life is good. I love my family. My wife Andrea, My daughter K-Sand and my grand baby Lyric. I love tattoos and running, although my knees are damn near shot. Good thing I can sit down on the job! In closing, thank you so much for listening. You'll never know how much I appreciate it.
