Everybody knows WBSM is our hometown radio station. My broadcast roots here date back to 2009. My familial seeds were planted at the tail end of the last century. Yet, I cast myself as the proverbial outsider. Most listeners get flustered and frustrated over my freedom-oriented, constitutional, often contrarian rants, but I’m OK when their freedom or livelihood is at risk. Call me a passionate Libertarian, always advocating for the taxpayer and individualism. My bitcoin-business updates alert listeners on how to earn crypto and use it as a savings and payment tool. After retiring from full-time hosting, I still practice my preach. You'll find me operating two home businesses, actively promoting freedom and bitcoin, plus serving as a locally elected Dartmouth Town Meeting member. I’m most proud watching my two adult sons pursue their American dream. Mine consists of traveling, and learning more about places, people and the business side of bitcoin. My 40-foot shuttle bus is being converted into a motorhome-office studio, so I can travel, expand operations and host audio and video shows from wherever home is at that moment. I call it living my “Plan B” lifestyle!
