At the moment, I am thinking of doing something with my Bio page to make it look more functional and hopefully easier for visitors to my site to read through it. Any, and I mean any ideas would be welcome. I'm very flexible when it comes to this kind of stuff :)

Hi Randy,
I checked out your site (mcran) and saw your bio page. I'm reminded much of a resume' when I view it. If you're looking to get work then it's very well suited for that purpose, but in print form. The internet is interactive and visual and a bio should have elements of both to be interesting, I think. How about adding small photos of you doing your work and enjoying your interest and love of music? Add some more blocked out text and maybe some audio snippets of some of your favorite music or broadcast moments. It's a bio all about YOU so there should be photos and examples of YOU doing what you do! :) Judging from your profile/avatar picture, you're smiling and looking like you're an upbeat and fun type of guy - bring that fun and excitement to your bio page with colors, sounds, and interesting text (maybe some fun stories from your experiences in broadcasting). It can be fun without being too busy and easily viewed if sectioned off in separate spaces that the viewer can absorb in little bits. As much as I'm not into their music anymore, Metallica has a great interactive and well polished bio page at http://www.metallica.com/band_overvie... That page breaks down to each member's bio and that's where you get the blocked out quick to absorb info right off the bat (along with a picture that really shows off that member's personality) with the more intense/detailed info below.
Since I am doing a band website, I tend to look to many music & band sites for inspiration. If it catches my eye, then I try to figure out why and add those elements to my own design. Remember, inspiration comes from others as well as from within - cruise around and check out different sites and see what inspires you!

Thanks so much for your ideas!! I will try and see what I come up with. I'm also looking for tips on what to use to display the bio etc... Maybe an inspired table format. This is what I use for my other pages. I could probably create some kind of mosaic using tablesm unless there is something better out there I can use.
