Originally from Allegan, I have lived in Grand Rapids since 2007. I’m a Grand Valley State University grad. I remember taping songs off the radio and making mixtapes as early as fifth grade, and I have been collecting vinyl albums since I was 16! My favorite bands are Led Zeppelin, Steely Dan and T.Rex. Catch me playin’ the classic hits of the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays on Classic Hits 98.7 WFGR!
