After graduation he worked for two years at the commercial classical station KWFM in south Minneapolis. From 1963 to 1966 he worked variously at KFAM FM in St. Cloud, KUXL in Golden Valley, and then WAYL and WLOL in Minneapolis. In 1966 he moved to Mexico for a job at the 250,000-watt border-blaster station XERB, where he worked with Bob Smith, a.k.a. Wolfman Jack.
