As a teacher of English, Drama and Broadcasting at small high schools first in New Salem and then Burlington, Wisconsin, he may have had the most lasting impact of any broadcast educator in Wisconsin history. During that same time he practiced as he taught, as a disk jockey and air talent at radio stations in Iowa, Illinois and southeastern Wisconsin, including WLIP, WIIL, WFNY and WJZQ, all in Kenosha, WMIR, Lake Geneva, WRJN, Racine, and WZUU, WEMP, WQFM and WLUM, all in Milwaukee. His crowning achievement was obtaining an FCC license and then building WBSD-FM, in Burlington, one of only two high school radio stations in Wisconsin. He managed WBSD from its first days in 1975 to well beyond his retirement from teaching in 2006. During his career at the small Burlington High School, his teaching and encouragement, along with his live “on-the-air” laboratory, astoundingly helped launch the successful broadcasting careers of over fifty of his students. He has been with WIPZ for 2 years and counting.
