Kickin' it in the studio M-F, 7p-midnight in my P.J.'s with Adult Swim on the plasma screen.
I love callers that are funny and lively, so hit me up at 241-KISS and let's conversate. Maybe make things weird, but not if it will get one or both of us arrested.
Crack open a beer, pop your bottle of champagne, pour a glass of wine--LET'S PREGAME M-F 7PM-MIDNIGHT TOGETHA, HOMIE.
Where It All Began
In the Southwest Chicago suburbs, born and raised, at the playground was where I spent most of my days (really, though). I was a kid that loved being outdoors, and I still do. I like to go camping every weekend that I have free in the Summer and Spring time. I played soccer growing up, sang in all the choirs in Middle School and High School, then went on to U of I in Urbana-Champaign to study Psychology! I wanted to become a Criminal Psychologist and work with serial killers in jail. And no, I'm not even kidding a little bit. So how did I get into radio? Glad you asked 'cause it's weird!
Radio Owns Me
I worked at Potbelly Sandwich Works on campus in Champaign, and a dude walked in to get a sandwich. I made small-talk while making his food and found out he worked at the radio station across the street (which I was too blind to notice was even there). It was called WPGU, and it was an Alternative Rock station, which is the music I grew up listening to. I found out he was a Computer Science major, so I asked if that meant I could work there, and he was like, "We have an Info Night next week. You're coming." So, I went, got the unpaid job, and worked there for my last two years of college. I got really good at it, I really enjoyed it, and it was more fun than talking to serial killers all day. In the meantime, I also started recording for WDNL in Danville, and the Program Director over there got me in contact with Bondsy himself, which is where KISS comes into the picture. WEIRD HOW LIFE WORKS OUT, RIGHT? I love my life. I love my job. I couldn't be happier. Unless, of course, I lived by the mountains. Then my life would be complete.
What Kinds of Things Do I Like?
I'm going to make a list, 'cause that's just less boring to read:
Folk and Jam Music Festivals (The small ones are the best ones.)
Pabst Blue Ribbon
Disaronno and Coca Cola (TRY THIS. IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE.)
Bob's Burgers (This show kills me. Every time.)
Lords of Dogtown

Highways DOGS DOGS DOGS DOGS
