Lance was born in Carlsbad New Mexico and his family moved to DFW in the late 60’s. He grew up in a strict Catholic family. Lance started listening to the DJ’s on the air like Mark E baby, and Ron Chapmen in Dallas. He knew he wanted to do that job at an early age. Lance picks it up from here…
I went to Elkins Broadcasting Institute in Dallas, and my first job was KOKE in Austin. All instrumentals all the time. Easy listening instrumentals. My shift was the all-nighter. Needless to say, I fell asleep while on the air the first night. Radio got better for me playing various formats thru the years, like Classic Rock, Country, and others. I have had the great priviledge of meeting several celebrities thru the years like The Beach Boys, Jay Leno, Stevie Ray Vaughn, among others.
I love Italian food, and being around my mom, siblings, nephews, and nieces. I feel that family is the greatest thing we have in life. I have been working in radio for 25 years now. I started when I was 7. LOL.
