New General Manager

We haven't had a new blog posting in a while. Things have been kind of hectic around here. We haven't had a general manager since the end of June! But now things are looking up, our new general manager just stepped off the plane this morning! His name is Dave Patty, and I will let him tell who he is in his own words.

"Born and raised in Fairbanks. Parents were Olin and Mildred Patty, owners of Aurora Drilling, a water well drilling company pretty well known in the area.

Was introduced to rock n roll at around age 3 by my older sisters. Elton John was the first artist I remember by name. At age 6, my Aunt Millie dropped a box of old, beat up records in my lap that included my first Led Zeppelin album. That was pretty much the end of my normalcy.

In 1980, cable TV came to Fairbanks, and I got an Atari 2600 for Christmas. My destiny was sealed, I'm afraid. A rock n roll broadcasting nerd. It's been weird.

Not long after that, they started feeding me computers, so I actually developed a few useful skills to go with the video games and movie channels. I started my first pre-internet BBS system around 1984. I know... "What the hell is a BBS?"
