The Story of Why I DJ

It was something I've wanted to do since I was a little kid. Bill Vancil gave me my break in radio. I learned how to mobile after spending three years helping a legendary DJ named Clyde Coffee.

More About Jim

I grew up in Madison (Fitchburg, technically) and went to Oregon High School. My family is huge. We started out with 12 and lost a few. My mom and dad are gone, too. I miss them all everyday. Good people. I'm crazy about them. Funny, honest and very kind. They made a bunch of great nieces and nephews along the way.

First Radio Station
First radio station I worked for was WGTD in Kenosha. My year of Magic 98 debut was 1987.

Favorite Vacation Spot
Vilas County, WI. I also liked Mexico a lot, too, when Magic sent me there.

What I'd Change About My Body
My gray hair. I hate it but the guys in my family seem to get it at a very early age. I really hated it once when a guy at a bar called me "Pops."

What I Bought With My First Big Paycheck
I paid ahead like three payments on my student loan.

Unfulfilled Dream
To meet David Letterman.
