  • 1) What was your first job in radio? Early influences?

    My first gig was actually doing weekend overnights at WAPL, so it all goes full circle. My radio influences were really two people. Lou Brutus, as I religiously listened to hardDrive every weekend. I specifically remember listening in my bedroom as a teenager and thinking that's what I want to do. Play the best music out there on the radio and have conversations about the music with those who wrote it. The other was Randy Hawke, (Randy, I'm not trying to kiss your ass here.) I felt the same way listening to Randy daily on WAPL as I did when listening to Lou, just a feeling of that's what I want to do. My biggest influence, though, was my copy of Metallica's Master of Puppets. I knew I had to play guitar after hearing that and I knew I had to do something in music. That and I would read every interview and every article in all the rock music magazines I could find. I was also just so interested in the story of how the music came to be.
