Born: September 1, 1952

Beginnings: "...despite 'hating it' [spinning records], Phil rose quickly through the ranks as a D.J., until he was fired from his final job as morning man at KLSX in Los Angeles. It was then that he realized he had to find a position which would better serve his talents, and began his career in talk radio at KVEN in Ventura, California, in 1990. For the most part 'fed up' with the business of radio, Phil accepted the position for a meager '...$1,500 a month at the age of 38.'" - Philhendrie.com
