My entire career was in Radio/TV. I spent many years in local radio
as a disc jockey playing Country, FM Big Band music, top 40 Rock,
and generic "good music" at several (mainly west) Texas radio
stations. I did local Television in Midland and Laredo. I spent 26
years with NBC TV in Burbank, California, building sets for the
Tonight Show, Days of Our Lives, game shows Christmas specials,
etc. Just about everything that came through the Studio. I retired
at 60 and returned to Texas, living in Cleburne, south of Ft.
Worth. My home there finally sold and I'm now living in my new
apartment at the Marquis on Gaston in Dallas! Yea!!!
What I’m doing with my life
For the first time in my life, I'm doing something for "me". I'm a
member of The Turtle Creek Chorale in Dallas. The Chorale is now in
their 32nd season. Predominately Gay, we perform all over the North
Texas region, and even toured Spain in July of 2010 (oh yeah, we do
have five straight guys in our group). I've found my home and my
family. I'm hoping that my partner will love them as much as I do,
and maybe even become a singing member!
I’m really good at
Making people feel at ease and making them laugh, perhaps either
with me or at me. Makes no difference as long as you're having a
The first things people usually notice about me
Hard question. I've heard "eyes" and "smile". I'll take either!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I've bee reading the Classics lately, but love Anne Rice and her
Vampire Chronicles. I also like Christopher Rice, her Gay son. He's
quite a writer, too. Loved "The Shack" by Wm. Paul Young!! Movies?
So many! I love being in the dark with my popcorn and Diet Coke!
Just saw "Burlesque" with Cher and Christina Aguillera. Very good.
And I love the old movies, too. Music? Anything except rap and hip
hop! And I love good old southern comfort foods.
The six things I could never do without
Laughter, love, friends, my old classic Buick, music and The Turtle
Creek Chorale. Of course now, I'd hate to be without my iPhone,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why some family members tend to drift away and become more a part
of the family they "married into".
On a typical Friday night I am
now trying to figure out just what to do! Dallas is now home and I
have the city at my doorstep! So glad to be out of the country and
back to "city life"!!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm probably not as "secure" in my life as everyone thinks. No man
is an island, even though everyone thinks he is.
