Learning to Fly
This I do for you, dear reader - for nothing seems to please you people like a picture of me with a stupid haircut.

Ah, I remember this like it was yesterday. Aside from that haircut...am I seeing some of your chest carpet as well? My man's passed out. Sammy belongs to the WORLD!

So, Lenslinger- You worked in the Greenville/New Bern/Washington market at one time? I worked for WITN at one time doing the one-man band thing in Jacksonville.

Brad I worked for WNCT from late 89 to 93, then went to work for WITN from 93-97. When were you at the Big 7? Did you know soul brother Alan Covey by chance? Small world...
