Wake Up with WOOD all week long with West Michigan's Morning News!
Born in Detroit and began my career in 1966 in the mailroom at CKLW, a 50 thousand watt flamethrower that cranked out the top 40 hits of the day. After a number of stops around the country, I landed at WOOD in 1981 and started hosting the morning show in "89".
I did spend a couple of years in the U.P early in my career and that's where I met my wife Laurie. She's a Respiratory Therapist. We have 2 sons, Michael and Patrick along with 2 grandkid's, Alison and Kyle and a spoiled dog (rat and jack) named Calvin.
When not working we enjoy eating out with friends, good wine and travel to anyplace that's warm,especially in the winter
WOOD is one of America's great radio stations ...even though my day starts at 3am... it's still a blast after all these years to come to work.
If you're listening Monday through Friday to West Michigan's Morning News, you'll learn more about me that you ever wanted to know!
These instructions are from Bacon Today.
On your next anniversary or any other special occasion, don’t get your sweetheart the traditional bouquet of red roses. Get them some bacon roses.
Things you will need. (Because there’s more to this than just bacon… Duh.)
- BACON – regular pack and thick cut if you want different sizes of roses. Otherwise, just use the same kinds of bacon- 2 packs
- Rose Stems (Find a bouquet of fake roses at Walmart, Joann’s, or any other craft store.)
- Mini Muffin Pan
- Broiler Pan
- Drill with bit (1/8″ bit, but any similar size will work)
- Glass Vase (If you want it to look nice.)
- Gravel or marbles (Or any other item of similar weight and size to put inside the vase… Again, this is only if you want it to look like a classy bouquet of bacon roses. Presentation is everything, buddy.)
Drill holes in the bottom of the muffin pan. This will allow the grease to drain when cooking the bacon.
Place the muffin pan on top of the broiler pan.
