I began writing songs in 1959 at age 12 and had my first songs published in the mid 70's in Nashville with cuts by indy artists and Caprice Records.
In October 1969 I landed my first radio job with WTRX (Pop-Rock) in Flint, Michigan. Three years later I was offered a job right down the road at WKMF, Flint's top rated country station.
In the mid 80's I was invited by Dr. Art Bond to host a song writing workshop at Calhoun college in Decatur, Alabama. Dr. Bond wanted to see if there was enough local interest to support new Music Industries courses within the Fine Arts department. There was! Debi Cochran, author of Collin Raye's "My Kind Of Girl" was a student in that first class.
Things are going very well since the heart attack on April 24th. 2011 and Belle now calls it the anniversary of my "Not being dead" Gotta love her...
