Dan Hughes - Champaign, IL
If you were wondering: the shirt says BEN DAVIS - my high school (see below)
My best-selling book is The Metal Detecting Manual.
My newest work is a short manual called Tips, Tricks, and Secrets For Radio Disc Jockeys.
My other books are on coaching and managing adult slowpitch softball, buying web space and building your web site, and making a web site for your high school class.
I do weekly internet radio shows on metal detecting, softball, and old-time radio.
Here's my old-time radio page.
Cincinnati Old-Time Radio Discussion Board
My daughter Karen (11 years old at the time) and I are in this old-time radio video with the late Fred Foy, who was the announcer-narrator for the Lone Ranger radio series.
I sell autographs in all fields, from politics to sports to show biz to newsmakers.
I write, produce, and host a weekly old-time radio show for the local Reading-for-the-Blind radio station (and which you can listen to on the internet).
My wife Kathy teaches art and creativity classes at her Kaleidoscope Art Studio.
My daughter Karen teaches at Pathways, an alternative high school.
My dog Max has been pretty big-headed since he was featured in USA Today.
UPDATE: Max is in USA Today again! (See the "Bolster Community" paragraph)
Here's an overly-long story
about my life in radio.
How I lost 35 pounds in four months, and have kept it off for five years (and no, I'm not trying to sell you anything).
How I built a backyard fire pit for twelve bucks (and I am NOT a handyman - Kathy will confirm this when she stops laughing).

We rub elbows with celebrities.
Karen Goes To Washington, 1999.
Here's the site I built for my
graduating class at Ben Davis HS in
(DISCLAIMER: I am not responsible for the hairstyles).
And none of this impresses my family much.
And finally, here's your own
personal audio greeting!
