I was born & raised in Marysville, Washington (the other Marysville). I am the son of teacher parents so education was pretty important in my family. I graduated with a B.S. degree in Organizational & Mass Communications from Eastern Washington University (after a lengthy battle over a typing compentency test, which I eventually won). When I got to college I asked someone who had the best parties and they told me to try the Radio & Television Department. So I got a job on the campus station and it turns out the guy was right, I got hooked on radio and the rest is the proverbial history.
I'd like to know what you are up too. Send me an e-mail about your favorite things to do, fun websites you've found, funny stories or gossip you may have heard and things that you and your friends and co-workers are talking about (I can always use the material). Thanks for listening and thanks for stopping by my page. By the way if you have any thoughts about stuff you'd like to see here, send me an e-mail. - Manley

What is with all this wind? It seems like the last 2 months about every other day or sometimes several days in a row, there is a wind storm that kicks up and puts a bit of a dent in what would otherwise be some pretty darn perfect spring weather. I guess I should feel very fortunate that I have out-grown my allergies for the most part. I see people all the time who are suffering horribly from all the pollen being blown around and I feel so sorry for them. If I had to choose between wind or rain I guess I'll take the wind. I mean either way it's going to screw up my golf game. :)
