Born and raised in Rochester, Minnesota, found transistor radio opening to faraway top forty stations in my teen years.To be cool in later years of high school, I carried new albums with cool cover art around. Produced a folk music festival with 5 or 6 artists, and maybe 15 people in the audience in 67 or 68. Thanks to my buddy Red Horton, pilgrimaged to Woodstock in 69, heard many of the late 60s greats, and was inspired by all half a million of us getting along peacefully. Lived in Santa Cruz, California, in the early 70s, where I got into photography, found a connection to the wonders of the seacoast, and moved to Glenwood Springs in 1976. Colorado Mountain College needed a serious bozo, so I found an opening to many opportunities, working with students, teachers, and people in the wider community. Picked up a video camera I found in a closet and made several short films. KDNK gave me a chance to sub in 1984, a show opened up soon, and I keep on showing up as a Wholly Bozo because it's fun, inspiring, heartwarming, and we are a phenomenon!
