Carson

I was born... eh, forget that. Long story short, born/raised Chi-town burbs. I wasn't one of those guys who grew up wanting to do radio. It kinda dropped in my lap, then into the bloodstream while at Winona State University for college. I haven't looked back since. I've worked in kitchens, managed retail (the now 'historic' Blockbuster), even was a valet. But nothing has given me more passion than being in radio... well except... we won't go there. I've worked in Missouri, small town Illinois, and now Cedar Rapids, having been on Country, Classic Rock, Soft Rock, and Pop stations. I love keeping the Hits blasting out your speakers, and becoming Hawkeye proud!

I am a huge "Once Upon A Time" fan.  Just something about the show has reeled me in.  In full disclosure, I'm not completely excited by the addition of Elsa/Anna to the cast, but am clearly in the minority there I know.  As such, I'm sure many would love to hear some of the secrets for the upcoming 4th season (premiering Sept. 28th) recently revealed.
