Hailing from the Great Plains and Wichita, KS, my name is Meatball, and I'm a Michigander-in-training. When you don't hear me on the Rocker Morning show with Mark Frankhouse, you'll likely find me belly-up to one of the local breweries or eateries. I'm also easily distracted by bright lights and loud sounds, so my second home from home will always be a live concert. Two Truths and a Lie: I've Met Kevin Kostner (twice) I'm a classically trained Operatic Tenor I once got kicked out of a McDonald's in Paris for ordering "Freedom Fries" You decide which one you think is the lie! STOKED to be rockin' on the ROCKER in Kalamazoo! Let's go get a beer, and you can teach me how to be a proper Michigander!
