4.) Why are you involved with independent community radio at 88.1 FM?
The tradition of college radio is legendary. KVSC sits king in this category. Given most college radio stations are made fun of for being “dead-air” factories, KVSC’s skill, professionalism, and depth of knowledge in the craft make it an organization to be proud of. I like imagining the original SCSU students putting needles to records back in the 60s from nearly the same spot we’re currently at. I carry on that tradition each show by making sure to keep the Phonos in use.
5.) What is in your personal CD player, iPod, or mp3 right now (BE HONEST)?
Car CD player: Blue Highway, Fleet Foxes, Scuola Franco, Luc & The Lovingtons
6.) Please disclose the most embarrassing music moment or concert you’ve attended or album you’ve bought (perhaps even shameful)
Playing my first trumpet solo in a full Jazz group…. in the wrong Key. I blasted it, don’t worry. Being one of the spotlighted show-goers shown on a promo video of Benny Benassi live show. I was in the middle of the dance floor doing the two-step and clapping may hands. Looked phenomenal.
7.) What are your hobbies and interest?
Road Biking, Amateur movie-making, INTL travel, Turntabling, Canoeing, Seeing shows, Fireworks
8.) When you are not at work or KVSC, where can you most likely be found?
9.) If it were the end of the world and you could only take five things with you, what would they be (BE HONEST)?
Family photos, Case of beer, James Brown Greatest Hits CD, Book about my family history, Biography of Carl Sagan
10.) What do you think is the future of radio?
The “voice-in-the-box” paradigm of radio will continue to erode as radio stations become multi-media platforms for all types of artists.
