I was born and raised in Greene County, Alabama, and educated in the Greene County School System. I am a proud member of St. John Baptist Church in Clinton, AL, the husband of one wife, father of one son, and grandfather of two. For many years, I sang with The Golden Bells Singers. Brother A (as I'm affectionately called by radio listeners) started in radio in March 1970 with only one hour daily, working 7 days-a-week for many years. You can now hear me weekday mornings from 5am until 10am, where I'm still dedicated to helping people and to gospel music, which is the love of my life.
