My career path was set when the Beatles walked onto the stage of "The Ed Sullivan Show," although it took me more than 40 years to get there.
Long after that fateful night in front of a small television in Piqua, Ohio, the delightful Janinne Thompson and I moved to Cincinnati and had two equally delightful daughters: Kate, who lives in Washington, D.C., and Jane, who lives in Martinsburg, W.Va.
I worked at the Enquirer for more than 30 years as a copy editor. About five years ago, I started writing music stories for the paper. After semi-retiring in April 2012, the folks at WNKU-FM have graciously allowed me to continue pursuing that teenage dream on their website at WNKU.org.
