“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 on FM-Hi! in the City of Shizuoka, so it is for a Japanese audience, that might not grasp too much of my
English, but for many years they have enjoyed the music I play.
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
at 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 I started my college education, and my first marriage ended.
