Music is The Hurricane's passion. His signature shows consisting of an eclectica of blues, funk, electronica, world beat, jazz, soul, and zydeco. Shows typically "start out at 300 knots with a "HurricaneHotStart" and they don' get no slower." Hence "The Hurricane."
Though "retired" since 2000, The Hurricane still does air operations on wildfires, floods, hurricanes, and the like. "I got the best of both worlds," he says. "A few weeks out in the so-called chaos world, then back to the beautiful quiet high lonesome outside of Crawford." "And the privilege of being a KVNF DJ, sittin' there in the Joe Cocker Studio, puttin' out the beautiful sounds of genius musicians, it don' get no better than that."
