Originally from the Boston area, Norm grew up listening to great jazz, an appreciation he carries to this day. He believes the beauty of the music is its diversity, the variety of grooves and textures you can get from different artists and different eras. In addition to his love of jazz, he has a very close family and finds their company his greatest joy in life. For those curious about the nickname, it's not a reference to a certain alto sax player, but rather is a play on his last name, as well as a nod to his being a longtime Celtics fan, and that he actually did rehab work with birds of prey! His show airs every Friday night at 11pm (Jazz After Hours).
