It’s Question and Answer time!

Where were you born?

I was born in Flushing, NY (yes, that’s the name of a real part of New York City).

What are you most afraid of?

Checking the mail late at night in the dark and getting bitten by a tarantula that somehow climbed into the mailbox.

What would people you know find surprising about you as a teen?

I was a serious nerd. I blame my parents.

If you could have any super-power, what would it be?

It would be very cool to be able to see through walls.

What’s your favorite food?

People think I love burgers, and I do, but my REAL favorite food is Chinese Food.

What was your first job?

I worked at Wendy’s in Glen Cove, Long Island where I was employee of the month twice.

What was your first radio job?

I ran the controls for Syracuse University football on WSYR-AM back in the mid 1980’s.

I asked KiiM-FM listeners to help write my bio, and this is what they came up with:

Buzz loves ice cream. He makes the BEST radio games to win prizes. He’s an award-winning, ranch-fry-eating radio personality who makes the evening commute more fun. However, he DOES need a new pair of cowboy boots. The Pope calls to request “Boot Scootin’ Boogie” at least once each year during Rodeo Week. He was once an underwear model (hey, once an underwear model, ALWAYS an underwear model – that’s what I say! –Buzz), and he once had locks of gold like Thor. He hates it when the food on his plate is touching, and he only eats one item at a time. He’s tried every burger in Pima County at least once. If you can’t find him, he’s probably watching a high speed police pursuit from LA on YouTube. He has one wife (Dena), one daughter (Elizabeth) and two dogs: the weather-predicting beagle mix Wrangler, and the emergency backup chihuahua Levi. Much of Tucson’s annual rainfall can be attributed to Buzz having just washed his car.

Buzz may also be partially responsible for the new Whataburger at the Dallas-Ft Worth airport. It’s kind of a long story.
