Stories written by bill
Nancy and I arrived in B/CS in April 2010. First recollection of being a radio geek was as a 9 year old riding my bicycle around the neighborhood with a transistor radio in the front basket. First experience in a radio studio was KWDM-FM at Valley High School, West Des Moines, IA. Then on to Northwest Missouri State University (GO BEARCATS!). I've been blessed to enjoy great radio in Texas, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska. Two adult daughters...though they'll always be my little girls!
