1. When did you get your start at KVSC?
Twas winter ought nine when I got my big break with KVSC.
2. What shows do you host?
I host men's collegiate ice hockey matches, as well as some hockey pairings involving female players. I also like to broadcast the news using only the farmer's almanac and some tinfoil.
3. Please list some artists you consider to be a must play on your shows.
I enjoy playing music from such menageries as Band of Horses, Wilco, Flaming Lips, POS, Brother Ali, and many, many more. Many.
4. Why are you involved in independent public radio?
I think it is important for people to remember that the public owns the airwaves. It's refreshing to be a part of a radio station that still so dedicated to reaching out to the community.
5. Please disclose the most embarrassing concert you have ever attended.
I am old, you see, so I can say with only a minor amount of shame I saw New Kids on the Block. It was at the Met Center and I left the show with a painter's cap featuring neon depictions of Danny, Jordan, Joe, John, Gerald, Steve and Marky Mark, aka NKOTB. Also I think the Funky Bunch.
6. What are your hobbies and interests?
Ok, I have this one thing that I do sometimes where I will round up all the junk mail I can find. Then, I crumple it all up into little balls. It sounds like I am making a mess, but you mustn't fuss. You see, after I crumple these balls of mail I open the trash can and sit down across the kitchen from the very trash can I spoke of only words ago. Sometimes, I sit like 15 feet from the garbage! Finally, the stage is set. I reach back and concentrate and pretend I am Kolby Brient or Big Country Bryant Reeves. He is my favorite. If I have 10 pieces of garbage, I bet I will make four in the garbage. 40 percent is good enough for the NBA. My mother tells me I should try out, but I keep telling her that I need to wait for LeBron to make his decision before I can know what team I should try out for. Duh.
7. When you are not at work or at KVSC where can you most likely be found?
I can likely be found at Target Field. Otherwise, I am wherever my wife tells me to be. I am not joking. She more or less has me hostage at this point.
8. If it were the end of the world and you could only take 5 things what would you take?
If it were the end of the world and I could only take five things where? To the moon? Did we finally start a colony on the moon? That would be sick. If I was faced with knowing A: It is the end of the world, and B: It's not that bad because there is a colony on the moon, and you are invited, not gonna lie I'm stoked. So, the question becomes what 5 things would you bring to the moon?? Is the moon like on DuckTales the Nintendo game? That would be rad. I would definitely bring a cane in that case, because Scrooge has one and he can bounce in the air for days on account of the fact that there is no gravity. Also, does the moon have 3G capabilty?? Of course it does, I'm just being silly. So I would need a smart phone. I am assuming they will have MLB games on the moon once everyone is settled in. So I would need the phone in order to keep track of my Moon Fantasy Team Stats. I think I would probably like to take some Airborne with me. Since I probably will never walk around outside ever on the moon, I assume I will be breathing recycled air for the rest of my days. Not the best. So I get two more things. Is this the rule for everyone? I mean, like is the world ending but everyone is going to the moon and can take five things with them? Because I am also wondering if clothes count as one thing. Because I don't think that one of those five things is going to be clothes for a ton of people. That's a lot of space shuttle nudity. However, when we get to the moon everyone will be forced to wear a space suit anyway so maybe the naked people know what they are doing after all. That being said, I would take the book Shaq Attaq!, by noted wordsmith Shackill Okneel. So, I need one more thing. (Honorable mention: WWF action figures, Jose Canseco rookie card, tube socks, Gerardo album, American Dad DVDs). My final item is a thermos. And that's all I need: A cane, A phone, some Airborne, Shaq book, and a thermos.
9. What do you think is the future of radio?
I believe that radio will continue to thrive as long as there are people on Earth listening to music. Radio is one of the last things that people can entertain themselves with 24 hours a day for free. No monthly subscription, no fancy equipment necessary.
