Doug on Doug:
I was born in California, in Newport Beach. I grew up in the SF Bay area, in Northern California.One big year in my life was my senior year of High School. I spent that year in Minden, Germany as an exchange student (Class of '85).
I’ve been in radio since 1988, with many stations including KSOL (where I was Doug EE Fresh the traffic rapper) 6 years as "Jungle Doug" on KRTY/Country in San Jose, and 3 years on the syndicated "Doug & Connie / Doug & Karla" morning show. I also worked with our Christian music channels on XM Satellite Radio.
My favorite holiday movie is “Young Frankenstein”.(Honestly!) That’s what my mom and I used to watch each Christmas.“What hump?”
I actually met my wife Sheryl through KRTY (although she'll tell you that she was not a "groupie"). She just wanted to see the “face behind the voice” .. and after she got the scary part over – we got married.(There is really a lot more to it but we’ll share that for the next marriage retreat.) Sheryl is truly the back bone of the family – because she does so much behind the scenes - I can try to go to bed each night at 8.(That 3 am wake up call comes much too early). My wife is also sharing her story in her book “A Scarlet Cord of Hope – My Journey through Guilt, Shame and Fear to Hope”. Her website is www.SherylGriffin.com
My oldest daughter - Lauren is married to a great Godly man – Stephen, and my son – Garic “Baby Man” Griffin is the only non-Californian in the family – He was born in Franklin TN in 1998.
My favorite verse is Phil. 4:6-7 which in the “Message” reads “Don’t fret or worry.Instead of worrying, pray.Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns.Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down.It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.”
