“why so serious”

Often my fellow Americans say love it or leave it
(referring to the country).  I am an American who lives
in Japan and visits his homeland at least annually
and some years more.   I love the U.S.A.,
but living abroad can be COOL.

I do radio that is so successful that nobody, since
it is for the Japanese audience, can really understand.

There I am from the early part of the century
next to the building where the radio station was
(that area is now a parking lot; the building be gone)


Are we thinkin’ there should some sort of biographical sketch?
Let’s see how sketchy we can make it. Born in the ATL
( the three letter airport designation ) down in the southern
fried Empire State of Georgia. Did you know that that state
in the United States has more land area and more population
than the country of Georgia

Came to Japan for the 1st time in the spring of 1992.
Moved from Hamamatsu to the City of Shizuoka some time
in 1996. Found the Woman of Destiny around the time
the Twin Towers crashed, but one thing had nothing
to do with the other. I call the one who would become
my wife the Woman of Destiny.

In 2005 we were blessed with a son. I said
“Name him after Rokurou” (her father), so he is
Rokurouta (Rocky for the American audience).
I become Rocky’s Daddy


Resume prior to coming to Japan:
the 50,000 watt AM blowtorch WSB;
over-night with music, later tech. prod. for
Larry Munson’s Sunday Night Sports Talk

That was mid to late 1980s.   I could never realize
how high I’d started around the spring of 1971
WELW-AM, Willoughby, Ohio (suburban Cleveland)

from WELW to WSB it was WELW-FM, KHAD-AM in DeSoto, MO.,
WPAD-AM/FM, Paducah, KY. Channel 46 in ATL (on the TECH. side),
WDEF-AM in Chattanooga, TN., WLFA-AM near Chattanooga over
the line in LaFayette, GA. and then back to ‘K’ calls with
KDMS-AM in El Dorado and then KKTX-FM allowed me to call myself their
Program Director, and then KRUS-AM in Ruston, LA. and some station
down in Bainbridge, GA. then back to Channel 46 in ATL, and then
in my 30s college education started and first marriage ended.
