Tell us about yourself: I’ve dug ditches… dug graves… drove trucks… owned bars… lost my shirt… once… twice… working on a third. I’ve been off-and-on the radio for 35 years. If life experience is important… I have a doctorate in that. The older I get the softer I become. I now cry as often as I laugh… and I laugh a lot. I would fight to the death for my family (using words, of course). My mother still buys my underwear.
