When did you get involved in KVSC?
Fall of 2010, should have earlier!!!
What show(s) do you currently host on KVSC and what programs have you hosted in the past?
I currently host the Morning Show Part 2 every Thursday from 9am to Noon. I have done the Neighborhoods of the World and Afternoon Progressive Rock Show as well.
Please list some of the artists or musicians you consider to be a must play on your show(s):
Some of the artists I always play are local minnesota music. I always play local music such as: Nick the Feelin’, More Than Lights, The Owls, Modern Condition, Brother Ali and much more. I like to play Interpol, The Flaming Lips, The Submarines, Morning Teleportion, TV on the Radio, Bassnectar, and Daft punk.
Why are you involved in independent community radio at 88.1 FM?
I am involved at KVSC because of the experience. I am majoring in radio broadcasting, so what better place to get training and experience than here. I am comfortable learning here because I’m learning just like every other student and volunteer that works at KVSC. I like the music they play and the huge musical library that they have. It is awesome.
What is in your personal CD Player, iPod, or mp3 right now ( Be Honest)?
I have Slightly Stoopid, More Than Lights, Kanser, Citizen Cope, Sublime, the Expendables, Pretty Lights, System of a Down, the Dirty Heads, A Tribe Called Quest, and a lot more. This is a few I can think of right now.
Please disclose the most embarassing music moment or concert you’ve attended or album you’ve bought (even shameful):
This would have to be growing up and listening to my mom’s favorite music all the time in the car. This is when I was like 5 to 9 years old. I would catch myself singing these songs sometimes. It was kind of embarassing.
What are your hobbies or interests?
I like to go skateboarding at the new Skate Plaza here in Cloud, or just thrash the streets still. In the winter, I like to go snowboarding wherever I can. I usually watch some movies or listen to music at home and just Jam out! I like to do everything because I just like to do stuff and stay busy all the time. Camping, biking, canoeing, tubing, just about anything and everything.
When you are not at work or KVSC, where can you most likely be found?
My couch or riding bike.
If it were the end of the world and you could only take five things with you, what would they be (BE HONEST)?
I would have to bring all my music in cd or Ipod form. My skateboard. A lady. My family. And most likely a giant stereo system!
What do you think is the future of radio?
The future of radio is looking good to me. I dont know the facts but I always hear its going down. I really doubt it will. There is nothing like radio. You can’t just get rid of something so amazing!! Listen to Your DJs from around the world
"You’ve got to listen to dj’s from across the globe
Because this kind of music it’ll never get old
Might be on your radio every sunday
So listen what your dj plays!"
