After circling Northern New England for the better part of my radio career, I’m pumped to be part of the team at WOKQ. It’s a homecoming of sorts, as OKQ has always been in my life. It’s the first station I remember listening to. Cutting wood with my dad, OKQ was on in the neighbor’s shop, and etc. Raised on the best Alabama, Ronnie Milsap, Larry Gatlin, Randy Travis, George Strait…all of it. Plus, wanting to be in broadcasting since I can remember, it’s no doubt this station was a big influence. When I’m not part of the end of your workday, I’m keeping track of what’s going on in the world of racing. Local, NASCAR, Indy, dirt, and etc. Also, I’m (what I want to call) an avid road biker. The seacoast has a ton of great riding, and I’m looking forward to getting back on these roads. That’s enough for here. Let’s connect!

My New Respect For Acting

This isn't to say there will be not be any future jokes about the acting capabilities of Dane Cook. However, when you can't act your way out of a paper bag, you shouldn't exactly throw stones. It's easy to sit on the sidelines and Nelson Muntz point and laugh. Yet, remembering lines and trying to get it right is a LOT harder than you think.
