Instead of boring you with a lame biography, I’ve responded to some of the most asked questions I get via the phone, e-mail, fax and in person. Here they are…
1.) “I heard you were a cop. Is that true?”
I was a Lafayette City Police Officer from 1985-1990, Eventually working my way up to sergant. It was volunteer work but I completed two police academies, the second to become accredited by the state. Basically I had the same gun, badge and training as the regular officers except, I didn’t get paid.
I chose (though I really didn’t want) to resign in 1990 after I found it to be a conflict of interest with my work at KSMB. Too many people recognized me when I would pull them over for traffic violations and it was hard to give a ticket to someone who’s telling you, “I listen to you every morning!”
The night I decided to resign was after I let a motorist go home despite several violations including no license ( he was using a ticket stub), no proof of insurance, one headlight out (the reason I pulled him over). His bright lights were on and he wouldn’t turn them off, the drivers side door couldn’t close due to a malfunction, expired inspection sticker, expired license plate and a busted tail light. As I approached his vehicle he looked at me, recognized me and said, “This morning when you were doing that thing about Madonna, I was laughing so hard I had to stop shaving!” I figured if I couldn’t separate the real job and the volunteer job, I wasn’t doing anyone any good. Instead of a ticket I followed him home and told him not to drive the car again because the next officer wouldn’t be so lenient.
The guy had a stack of books from U.L. in his backseat. I figured if he's a student and obviously flat broke, why make it worse for him.
If that had been me driving that car, I would have been thrown under the jail! You too!
2.) “Where’s Tawana?”
Tawana moved to a town near Hammond, Louisiana. Will she return one day? I don’t know. That’s up to Tawana. Despite what you’ve heard elsewhere and despite what our competition thinks, that’s the only reason Tawana left. She wasn’t forced out by anyone, and that includes the letters that appeared in the newspapers a while back.
KSMB had a character on its morning show that was bigger than the station itself. You’re the competition, you’re getting your butt kicked and no one knows you exist. What do you do? Once the Times Of Acadiana attacked me personally, as well as Tawana, I knew something was up. I personally would have never let Tawana be run off by anyone. She and her family moved. That’s the real story. She was the best!
3.) “Dude. What time do you get up every morning?!!!”
Usually 4:50am. That allows me time to shower, dress and gather any last minute entertainment stories off of the internet, dub something onto mini-disc off of a show I videotaped the night before, get gas, stop at Eckerd or Right Aid for the latest gossip magazines and anything else that could slow me down.
4.) “What do you do in your spare time?”
Workout, play basketball, manage my20,000-plus title MP3 collection, mix dance music for our club shows, dj parties or at clubs, buy/sell stuff on ebay. Those are some of the things I do on a regular basis.
5.) “You talk about your “top five” on the radio but I laugh because you keep changing it. Are you just kidding around?”
No, it changes, but only slightly. I consider my wife number one in my top five. Sexy over cute wins with me. Because you wanted to know, here’s the rest of my “top five,” at least for this week; Jessica Alba, Gina Gershon, Cindy Crawford, Shania Twain.

6.) “Who’s the biggest celebrity you’ve ever met?”
If you’re talking size, Shaquille O’Neal. I had a chance to hang with him at his home in Beverly Hills. He’s a super cool guy. Down to earth at home, all business on the court (some of the pictures I took while I was there are on my site).
It’s hard to say who was the biggest as far as name but if I had to answer I would say Elton John. I met him three times. He’s a funny guy and he helped break the ice when I met him the first time.
7.) “You always say you’re “upper-white-trash". What’s your favorite upper-white-trash money saving deal of the century?”
Don’t laugh but it’s 10-10-636. Five cents a minute long distance no matter how long you talk. No monthly fees, which I have a problem with. You want my business and you’re going to charge me $4.95 a month, plus an outrageous rate for my long distance calls?! 10-10-636 is simple to use. You dial 1010636, 1, then the area code and number your calling. I received a card in the mail from them a little over a year ago and I’ve been a customer ever since.
Also, fragrance.net for great deals on cologne and perfume. Yes, the real stuff, not imitation.
8.) “You sound pretty alive in the morning. Do you ever have bad days?”
Of course, but I made a promise to myself a long time ago to never let whatever is going on with me personally affect my show or anyone else at the radio station. If I came in sounding down and out, the rest of the show would more than likely take the same route.
9.) “Does anything make you mad?”
There’s not enough space on this website for me to answer! Little things like people who run red lights and jeopardize the lives of everyone else in an intersection, shoplifters, child molesters, and government agencies that can’t make decisions.
The biggest thing for me is people who can’t take responsibility for their actions or failures. They think that you and everyone else, but themselves, are the reason they didn’t make it. Sometimes I want to hand those individuals a mirror and say, “Look!”
10.) “My wife is from Branch, Louisiana so I sometimes call her “country” and she gets mad. I’ve heard you refer to your wife on the radio as “big country.” Does she get angry?”
She said as long as I don’t call her that all the time it’s o.k. She’s from Cecilia, Louisiana and says she actually finds it funny. Guess I’m lucky.
11.) “Come on. Only twenty-eight listeners?”
Well, those are the ones I’ve met. Are there more? I want to meet them!
Feel free to submit questions. If they are along the same lines as what everyone else is asking I’ll answer here or if necessary, via e-mail.
12.) "Is that REALLY Jennifer Lopez's voice that I hear when I log on to your website?
You can't tell it's me? I inhaled two balloons full of helium and did that J-Lo thing to see if anyone would fall for it. Seriously, yes it is Jennifer Lopez.
13.) "Hey bruh. Can you mix me a CD?"
No, I can't.
One thing I get asked a lot is what my favorite websites are. These are sites I frequent on a daily or weekly basis. Hope they don’t bore you!
