Bert Gangl

  • Name: Bert Gangl
  • Role At JFH: Review Writer
  • Birthday: June 24
  • E-mail: Staff Contact Form
  • Education: Master's Degree from the University of Kentucky
  • Hobbies: Reading, Running, Travel, Music History
  • Pet Peeves: Shallowness, insincerity
  • Thing you MUST Know: there is no "e" on the end of my last name, despite just about everyone's wanting to place one there
  • Guilty Pleasures: My wife and I absolutely love Barry Manilow's 2002 Christmas Album
  • Favorite TV Shows: Psych, NCIS LA, the late, great Mr. Monk
  • Favorite Movie: Back to the Future, Ocean's Eleven, Life of Pi
  • Favorite Books: The Bible (naturally), The All-Music Guide to Rock, Billboard's Top Pop Singles: 1955-2002
  • Favorite Bands/Artists: Lincoln Brewster, Dizmas, Edmund's Crown
  • Favorite Live Show(s): Geoff Moore and the Distance, Georgetown College, 1990 (my first Christian concert)
  • Favorite Food: Southern cooking (from my mom's side of the family), German and Italian cuisine (from my dad's side)
  • Favorite Fast Food: I'm addicted to Subway, which, now that I think about it, may or may not technically qualify as fast food
  • Favorite Breakfast Cereal: Kellogg's Frosted Mini Wheats
  • Favorite Candy: Kit Kat bars - lots of 'em
  • Most Embarrassing Moment: I played bass in a hard rock outfit several years back. The audience, which was made up mostly of close friends and other acquaintances, was particularly receptive, so I promptly hopped up on a nearby table to wow the assembled masses. This was about two seconds before the table legs buckled and I slid helplessly onto the waiting floor. Luckily, there were no life-threatening injuries, but suffice it to say, I stayed earthbound from that point on.
