Roger grew up on a Quarter Horse and Produce Farm in Ashtabula, Ohio (North East Corner) where his childhood classmates would cheer for summer vacation while he would whimper knowing his father would put him to work all summer long. So to avoid a life full of heavy lifting Roger decidied to start his career in Country Radio.
Along with his career, Roger is married a wonderful woman named Ruby, who still loves him through all his country boy "issues". When they married they combined their two families to make a home full of six kids, Zachary, Kleora, Heather, Jeremiah, Brandon and Christian.
When you don't hear Roger on 99.9 Kiss Country you'll find him playing out in the backyard with his kids as they are all very active in sports, so much so his youngest son sleeps with a baseball bat instead of a teddy bear.

I just read that if he were still alive and hadn't passed when he was 29 years old during a car ride between December 31 and January 1st in 1952-1953, Hank Williams Sr. would have been 90 years old today. For many of us Hank's music has long been taken off our record players and has never made it to our ipods....but you can still hear his influences today.
At only 29, Hank wrote over 130 country songs, helped give life to Hank Williams Junior and influenced artists like George Strait, Garth Brooks, Brooks & Dunn, Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson and multiple others. So happy birthday to the late and great Hank Williams Sr.
