I consider myself living proof of the Law of Attraction. When I was a young child I envisioned myself as the person I became. As a child I loved the dream. For nearly fifty years, I have loved the life. The transition from dream to reality manifested through the music business. After several years on the road playing the lounge circuit, I brought my piano bar act to Nashville's Printer's Alley in the early '60s. Performing by night, writing songs by day, I had songs recorded by such legendary artists as Brenda Lee, Johnny Mathis and Al Hirt among others. But the broadcasting dream remained an unsettled calling. An introduction to the WSM radio program director led to various apprenticeship duties. For ten years I lived on Woody Allen's advice that eighty percent of success is showing up. It worked! In 1969, I persuaded WSM radio officials to let me host its first call-in talk show.
