The Interview

How did you get to be such a Bewitched fan? How old were you when you got your first crush on Elizabeth Montgomery?
I started watching the show when I was a kid because my mother liked it, that was one of her favorite shows when she was growing up(she was around when it first aired back in the day). In high school Nick at Nite started showing Bewitched and thats when I really noticed Elizabeth Montgomery and I went whoa who is this
There was something about her looks, her style and the way she carried herself that made me go ga ga for her.

If you could travel to any decade in the 1900's which would you choose and why?
The 1960's. Mainly the music, and to see a lot of the political and social turmoil(particualry the civil rights movement) up close. Also records and concerts were super cheap. Radio was really fun and I could see all the old shows I like.

What were your favorite and least favorite subjects in school?
History and English were my faves. Science and especially math was my least favorite. I am so bad in math I can barely add and subtract.

Do you have any siblings?
Two younger brothers

I guess I would have to go with Sly & The Family Stone

Do you ever hop over the border and go to Windsor?
Its been a few years since I have been to Windsor, but its nice there.

Do you ever watch Canadian TV?
I used to watch Degrassi Jr High(and High), the first series.

Dont know if this counts as Canadian TV, but I have clips of this music show from the 60's called Swingin' Time that was hosted by Detroit DJ Robin Seymour and had lots of great guests. It was broadcast in CKLW' studio in Windsor.

Do you go to school?
I go to school part time, I am a liberal arts major soon to be a history major. I like school a lot. Cant wait to get a degree.

Who is your favorite president?
Theodore Roosevelt because he believe the government should serve the people,not the other way around

What kind of things do you worry about late at night?
Dont really worry about things late at night. If I had a bad thing, or if something happend to me, I close my eyes, say my prayers, go to sleep and deal with it the next day.

Elizabeth Montgomery

What sports do you like?
Never really got into sports

If you were a pickle what flavor would you be?

What is your favorite song, and favorite band/artists?
I like way too many songs to pick just one as a favorite. Favorite band I would have to go with Booker T. & The MG's

Do you like to talk on the phone? Whats the longest phone conversation you had?
Not a big phone person, I'd rather talk face to face, I think my longest phone convo. was like 2 hours to this girl I was dating at the time.

Do you like getting mail? What's your favorite kind of mail? Cards, checks, catalogs, letters, etc.
I like getting mail: Checks are my faves of course, but I like getting letters and cards too.

Whats the scariest movie you've ever seen?
Hands down Night of the Living Dead(the black and white original)

What were the best and worst parts of high school for you?
Best part of school was when I graduated high school in 1993; worst part was everything before, especially high school

What kind of popcorn do you like?
Hot buttered popcorn

I like fruits and vegatables, and I like to eat junk food too. I probably should eat more of the former and less of the latter.

What do you like best about being a DJ at WIDR?
The freedom to program my own show and play what I want without having somebody look over my shoulder or follow some playlist. I also like having an oppurtunity to play records that got overlooked the first time around, or didnt get any notice before or cool new stuff that mainstream radio wouldnt touch.

What is your one goal of being a DJ that hasnt yet been fullfilled?
To DJ a dance party and have everybody move to what I am spinning
