1)When did you get involved with 88.1FM? I started pestering the Sports Department in the Spring semester of 2011
2) What show(s) do you currently host on KVSC and what programs have you hosted in the past? Friday noon news, “The Jeff Geisen Show” SCSU Men’s and Women’s Hockey play by play.
3.) Please list some of the artists and musicians you consider to be a must play on your show(s). I still have no clue, our library is so vast. I’m learning as I go.
4) Why are you involved with independent community radio at 88.1FM? I was on campus anyway and decided to overtake the sports scene since I can’t overtake the world.
5) What is in your CD player right now (be honest)? What’s a CD player?
6) Please disclose the most embarrassing music moment or concert you’ve attended or album you’ve bought (perhaps even shameful)? I went to a Bette Midler concert with my high school girlfriend many many years ago.
7) What are your hobbies and interests? Sports, fantasy football, fantasy baseball, beer league softball, movies, family time, being on TV, being on the radio, editing video and sound.
8) When you are not at work or at KVSC where can you most likely be found? In the news room at UTVS or at the NHEC, Husky Stadium, Hallenbeck Hall, Home or an editing suite.
9) If it were the end of the world (?) and you could only take five things with you what would they be (be honest)? My wife, a football, a football helmet, a mirror and clean underwear.
10)What is the most annoying request or listener inquiry you remember receiving? Being asked to re-read an obituary and then trying to answer questions about said person in obituary whom I had never met.
11) What do you think is the future of radio? I feel it will be in the media in some facet. There will always be a need for radio but maybe not in the form we are used to. The local DJ is being fazed out for the pre-programmed packaging. The sports play by play announcer, the salesman and the station programmers however will always be in need. They may merge into the same position and in fact in some places, already have! You must be a jack of all trades to make in radio. If you don’t like music, start to like it. If you don’t like sports, suck it up and run the board for events. Ask questions and get to know everything you can. As the great G.I. Joe once said, “The more you know the more power you have and knowing is half the battle.”
Please add any additional comments about your involvement with KVSC or other interests. I am grateful to KVSC for the opportunities they have given me. I hope to use the skills to further my future career as well as help anyone who dares to enter the basement in Stewart Hall and want to learn and cover sports. I’m only here to pass it forward.
