“I feel very blessed to have been given the opportunity to call MCA Nashville my home for 25+ years. When I started my career in 1966 at the age of 21, I never could have imagined the road ahead and the view looking back at all the wonderful artists, managers and friends that I have grown to love like family. Some of my most treasured memories have been with my family at Universal Music Group. I love working with Mike Dungan, Katie Dean and my MCA team. Royce Risser and I go back from Day 1 when I first started, and he has always been by my side. It was through MCA that I met my beloved wife Judy, and I will always be grateful for that. I am very proud to pass the baton to Briana Galluccio. Briana will be the third southeast regional in the history of MCA Nashville to carry the torch. Thank you to all my radio people who have supported me through thick and thin. Will always love you, Uncle Lou.”
