In the beginning of fall semester 2011- wanted a different volunteer experience so I started the DJ training process.
2.) What show(s) do you currently host on KVSC and what programs have you hosted in the past?

Local MN artists such as Atmosphere, Jon Wayne and the Pain, Eyedea & Abilities; throwbacks like Led Zeppelin, and random plays from current non mainstream bands: Fruit Bats

I think it’s an important community service and resource that can be used to promote good music, local artists and positive thoughts for a happier radio listening area.

Dessa- A badly broken code is in my CD player; Skrillex on spotify

As a Jr in high school my first concert was REO Speedwagon and Styx- went with two friends from printmaking… great night complete with standing next to a 50+ yr old with black dyed hair holding a candle- no time for lighters- & a few minor traffic violations but managed to make it home safely.

Listening to music, exercising, cooking, reading, hanging out with friends, enjoying the outdoors

Home, checking out music around town, or at my Crossfit gym
9.) If it were the end of the world and you could only take five things with you, what would they be (BE HONEST)?
A vaporizer for air quality… ; mp3 player with built in speakers; a wok or pan to cook with; matches; & a mate J who knows a first aid kit or knife probably would’ve been a good item
10.) What do you think is the future of radio?
Robots… kidding! Just continuing to play good music
