After 50 years in broadcasting I retired January 8, 2010 and enjoyed doing nothing for awhile. In March 2010 I accepted the position of Executive Director of the Grand Opera House in Dubuque. We produced 7 productions (mostly musicals) each year. Also booked touring shows, bands, comedy, etc. After 4 /12 years of success I left the position in September 2014 and am enjoying a true retirement.
