I'm your ex-patriot Canadian host of 'The Morning KIIK Start' weekdays from 6-10am. I've been living in the Quad-Cities for 18 years now. I'm a self-described 70's and 80's 'musicologist,' who lives and breaths the greatest hits we plays on KIIK. When I'm not 'musicologing' (it's a word now!)

That didn't read as creepy as it sounds.
