Growing up, Connor had two passions: Radio and airplanes. In high school, he solo'd in a Cessna 150 at Civil Air Patrol's Powered Flight Encampment. While in Navy ROTC at the University of Washington, Connor vision was tested at 20/30. This blocked him from qualifying as a Naval Aviator. Dreams of landing on an aircraft carrier done, he dove head first into radio. In a span of nearly 35 years, he has entertained radio audiences in Seattle, Spokane, Long Island, New York CIty & Cleveland. Connor has now proudly called Wenatchee home for the past 15 years!

Here we go again. It's Wildfire season. I just went outside to empty the garbage and it smells like a campfire.
