Zach would have been 26 today. I remember the night he was born. I was doing the evening show at KRPM 106 FM. When I finished the show at midnight I started the drive from Des Moines, WA to our home in Auburn. On the way I had the radio on and the announcer that followed me announced to the broadcast world that I should get home soon as my wife was going into labor. I think she actually said that her water broke.
When I got home, Bev and got right back in the car and went to the hospital in Renton. Zach was born around 1:30 a.m. I was 25. According to legend, Zach was conceived after a Mariners' game. The Mariners always stunk at baseball but they were good for romance.
