Welcome to my web page! Because I love maps and traffic I'll be posting some of my favorite map sites and also some of my favorite alternate routes to take when traffic gets bad around the Baltimore area as well as updates on ongoing road construction that might affect your ride.
I've been working in radio for over 30 years and spent the first ten years working at radio stations in Upstate New York, San Diego and Memphis. In 1979 I got lost in Baltimore while making a trip from Washington to Boston. I fell in love with the city and starting planning on finding a job here. Finally in 1981 I got the break I wanted and came to Baltimore to work at the old V103. Since then I've worked at a number of radio stations in town and for 13 years I was the announcer in between shows on Channel 13. Since 1997 I've been here at WPOC and loving every minute of it. We have such great listeners and I really enjoy helping people get to work without too much trouble in the morning. I have 2 grown sons, Joe who is a Baltimore County Police Officer and Dan, who works for a Natural foods market ing firm. I call them the hippie and the cop! I also have a 3 year old grandson, Tony and a year old grandaughter, Chloe.
I got an email from my son the cop with some helpful news that not a lot of people know about cell phones. Here it is.
I just learned something new (and something old to some of
you) about cell phones.
Type in *"06" like you were making a phone call
and a number will pop up.
This number is specific to your actual physical phone, and
it is more useful than the actual phone number. If you lose your phone,
or your phone is stolen. This number can be used by police to track the
actual phone even if the phone number is changed or transfered to your new cell
I would implore everyone to just take one second and type in
that number to get this number. Send it to yourself on an email so it can
be retrieved later, just in case. It makes life so much easier us cops.
