As the words from Neil Diamond’s
song Beautiful Noise say,
“It’s the sound that I love,
and it fits me as well as a hand in a glove.”
Born in Nagano, Japan, where my dad, while in the service, met my mom, I began my life as a
military brat. Constantly moving abroad to foreign countries and throughout the United States made it
difficult for me to build lasting relationships growing up. However, no matter where we moved or lived,
the one lifelong relationship that developed and continues to this day is my love for music.
From my early years with a transistor radio pressed against my ear, until now when I’m listening
to the Rock-O-La Jukebox in my Man Cave or just have Inside the Gates Radio playing in the background,
music has been and always will be an important part of my everyday life.
Whether it’s Music to Your Ears, Rings a Bell, Strikes a Chord, or even if it’s the Same Old Song
and Dance, music is indeed the universal language we all relate to as individuals. When in an elevator,
in a grocery store, or in the dentist's chair, you will hear it. It’s played on a wedding day. It’s played at
celebrations of life. Whatever the occasion, Music speaks a language we can all feel and relate to.
Being a Baby Boomer, I feel blessed growing up with what I believe to be the best music of our
generation. From it’s earliest roots until today, music is like food and there is not much I don’t like!
Music, as the Beach Boys put it, goes good with the soul.
My show’s title, Beautiful Noise, was taken from one of my favorite Neil Diamond songs and is
just as the words say, “It’s the sound that I love, and it fits me as well as a hand in a glove.” Whatever
your preference of Beautiful Noise may be, quite honestly, you can hear it on my show. A wide variety
of songs, including Classic Rock, R&B, Soul, Jazz, Pop, and Country, to be heard and enjoyed by all who
Moving to Big Canoe was one of the best decisions I made in my life. This place is seriously a
piece of heaven here on earth. Making it just a little bit better, I was introduced to Inside the Gates
Radio Station and the Music of Big Canoe by its Co-founder and Music Director, Craig Looney. It wasn’t
long after, that the LooneyMan asked if I would consider trying my hand at doing a live show. I soon
became the station's fifth D.J.
Unlike some of the other DJs on our team, I had no experience or background when it came to
being behind a microphone or an instrument, but I did not let that slow down my chances of doing a live
weekly broadcast. Fast forward a year and a half, we now have 7 DJs bringing live shows each evening
of the week. For me personally, it’s been an amazing experience and I’m enjoying my ride on the
airwaves every Thursday evening with my listeners.
Big Canoe has so much to offer including its many amenities to be enjoyed by all with different
tastes. Whether you like to golf, play tennis or pickleball, cruise Lake Petit on a pontoon, enjoy one of
our many hiking trails, or just get a workout at the fitness center. I’m here to tell you about the best
amenity offered and it is absolutely free. That’s right, Inside the Gates Radio comes with no monthly
dues and can enjoyed by all with different tastes in music, only on Inside the Gates Radio
