About john of the desert

I'm really John Schumacher (Schumacher A.B.D.S....Always Broadcasting Delightful Sounds!)and I now live in Sun City, Arizona USA. I was born and raised in Mishawaka - South Bend Indiana, graduated from the University of Notre Dame, worked with the family construction company (Schumacher-Sons, Inc.) and then, in 1978, I moved to Lebanon, Indiana (near Indianapolis) to participate in the building of a theme park to be known as "Old Indiana." I worked there until 1997 when the park closed. It was then that I made my move to Arizona. Originally, in 1953, I had started out in radio and communications at Notre Dame and continued with an FM station in South Bend (W.H.F.S. - "With High Fidelity Sounds" - a short-lived early 'good music' attempt that failed because not enough people had F.M. receivers yet!) until 1958 when I returned to the family construction business. By the beginning of 1998, I made the move to Sun City, Arizona where in addition to keeping the music playing on "Eclectic Waves" I'm also the Chief Audio Director for Recorded Recreational Reading for the Blind, Inc. There, we record books and magazines for the free 'Talking Book' program designed for people with sight challenges. That is a very rewarding endeavor and you can find out more about it at: www.readingfortheblind.org/ Summing up: it's now great to be back to the radio format...and especially enjoyable with: "Eclectic Waves" - available wherever you are!
