What's in a name? Well, for me...a murderous shark movie from the 70's. That's right, I was named for Police Chief Brody from "Jaws". I guess I should count my blessings, my mom could have loved "Zardoz" starring Sean Connery. Never heard of it? Don't worry, most people haven't either and I am sure Sir Connery wants to forget it as well. Anyway, I have radio to thank for everything that I have in my life.
I grew up in Augusta, Georgia, where at 17 years old I got my start in radio at an Alternative Rock station being the Night DJ's intern and being dubbed with the moniker of Spaz the Intern. Augusta was a small town in the 90's, so being called Spaz was a bit embarrassing for a teenager trying to be cool. Despite that lovely name or maybe because of it, I kept paying my dues until I got my own on-air shift. I loved living in Augusta, but at 21 I decided I needed to get out and explore America. I moved to Memphis and continued to work as a On-Air Personality there. One night at a radio station event, I met the woman who would soon become my wife. Little did I know that she was simply there on vacation from Las Vegas visiting her dad...WHO HAPPENED TO BE MY BOSS. Truth. Anyway, we talked all night and after she left I told all my friends that if she contacted me when she got back to Las Vegas that I was going to marry her. Long story short...too late. She emailed me when she got home and we were engaged a few months later. I filled up my Toyota Tercel with all of my belongings and drove from Memphis to Las Vegas over the New Years weekend in 2002. We got married the following October and now have two amazing sons. I have been on the air at a few different here in Las Vegas and I am very happy to call Star 107.9 my home. You see, had I not stuck with radio back when I was 17 and being called Spaz then I never would have met my wife and never would have been a dad...so I really have radio to thank for everything I have in my life. Thanks for reading and listening to me every Sunday night. I hope I put a smile on your face, that's the reason I do what I do.
