Rubbing elbows with famous rockers and country artists is just a part of a job description for a former Rushville resident. Andy Wilson doesn’t look at his job as work.
Wilson is now vice-president of the Bohlsen Group in Indianapolis.
“My job is hard work sometimes, but it’s really something I love to do and look forward to doing,” Wilson said.
Wilson was born and raised just outside of Rushville. “I have so many great memories of the town, the people, I got to know everyone while I lived here,” Wilson said. “Some of my best friends are from Rushville. I went to school there all my life and in high school played football and golf. I also was involved in other school activities like plays and a bunch of other things. My father was athletic director at the high school.”
After high school Wilson went to Franklin College and received his bachelors.
“When I was in college there were three of us from Rushville that went to Franklin. While in college, I worked for WFCI radio station which is now an NPR station. Back then, they played alternative music and I was their music director. They played groups like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, just a lot of good early 90’s rock music. I met a lot of people that way and that helped out my career. I have always had a love for music just like everyone else. I remember my sister taking me to my first concert in 1988. We went to the Monsters of Rock Tour where I seen groups like Metallica and some other heavy rock groups. That’s where I really got my first taste for music. My job at the radio station allowed me to interview groups like Collective Soul, Foo Fighters, Everclear and Jewel. It really changed my life.”
