1.) When did you get involved with 88.1 FM?
I got involved at KVSC as an internship my freshman year in the Newsroom back in the fall of 08’. That turned into an official Position as an Assistant News Director. I also started going to our Monday Night Live every week just to watch. Well I guess I watched a little too close because KVSC gave me the job to that too. I am currently the Assistant Music Director and MNL Sound Engineer at 88.1 FM KVSC Saint Cloud.
2.) What show(s) do you currently host on KVSC and what programs have you hosted in the past?
I have hosted a whole bunch of shows here at KVSC on and off, but now I have found my home as the Tuesday Late Night Progressive Rock Show host. I have had this show for almost a full year now and I plan to keep it. It features the Tuesday night Featured Artist Spotlight which is almost always a Punk Rock artist. The FAS runs from 11pm to midnight, and right after Undercurrents Punk Rock on Tuesdays.
3.) Please list some of the artists and musicians you consider to be a must play on your show(s)?
Well I like to keep the theme of Undercurrents Punk Rock going even after that show is done with more punk rock, because hey, if I don’t play who will?
