OVERNIGHTS

. . .

When did you start at KQ?

April 2017. I started listening in 1984.

. . .

Favorite concert memory:

This one still holds the test of time: Back in March 1987, looking for something to do, my wife and I stopped in at First Avenue and paid the cover without knowing who the band was. Turned out to be Prince kicking off his Sign O’ the Times Tour! Small venues are the best! Other favorite concert moments have been Brian May playing “God” by John Lennon at the Chicago Theater, and Robert Plant playing a solo show at The Vic in Chicago.
. . .

Favorite classic rock album:

Tom Petty Damn the Torpedoes. I literally wore out the vinyl.

. . .

Any random celebrity moment or run ins:

I was at a Jackyl sound check and Jesse James Dupree handed me his guitar and told me to play something. I hit an A chord and thought “Oh Sh**! This is what I want to do!”

. . .

Favorite watering hole past and present:

Past: The Poodle Club was a favorite while I attended Brown Institute in Minneapolis. They had dollar beers and free “hot dogs” (they were kinda green). Present: The Wicked Wort in Robbinsdale.

. . .

Got any hobbies?

I play a little guitar, but who doesn’t?

. . .

Is there something you feel strongly about? How have you helped give back to the community?

I like to help with projects that help kids and families. I have helped collect Toys for Tots, Coats for Kids, and other donation drives.
