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.
Over the weekend I was hanging out at home in North East Ohio (home to me is where ever your family is) and I took my little man, Christian out to McDonald's after sitting in the cold rain watching the first half of his brother's football game. So what better way to warm a little guy up than with a Happy Meal toy.
But while we were waiting for the line to dwindle down formed by a group of athletes off a bus Christian said, "I want to be on the radio". I chuckled and told him, "I wish I could take you into work everyday. I know our webmistress Jessica and Sharon Green would love to have you there. But I can't...but what I can do is allow you to say hi to everyone."
So I broke out my phone and recorded Christian in his "Western North Carolina Radio" debut for you all to enjoy.
