Fun Facts

Born the fifth of six children, I’m an identical twin. Since 2006, my twin brother, Nathan, and I have co-hosted “The Early Morning Show” on KECO Radio in Elk City, OK.

I’m named for former Dallas Cowboys head coach Tom Landry. My parents didn't know they were having twins when we were born, so they scrambled to come up with Nathan’s name. Supposedly he was named for an ancestor who fought in the American Revolution, but I haven’t seen documentation, so, frankly, I’m skeptical.
