When did you get involved with 88.1FM?
I got involved with KVSC in the fall of 2015. One of the first people I met when I got to St. Cloud State University told me to go and check out KVSC, so I did!
2. What show(s) do you currently host on KVSC and what’s your favorite to listen to?
I currently host the Morning Show Pt. 1 on Tuesdays and my favorite show to listen to is either the Afternoon Progressive Rock Show or Beats n’ Pieces.
3. Please list some of the artists and musicians that you consider a must play on your show(s).
Darwin Deez, Wavves, R.E.M., Pavement, CHVRCHES, Eric Mayson, The Flaming Lips, Eels, Dan Deacon, and Harvey Danger to name a few.
4. Why are you involved with independent public radio at 88.1FM?
I have an affinity for listening to and sharing music with people so 88.1FM is an amazing opportunity for me to do that. Also, it has been a dream of mine since I was a kid to be on the airwaves. I even used to make radio shows on my computer using a basic computer microphone and a boombox when I was a wee boy.
5. What is in your CD player, iPod, or MP3 player right now? (Be Honest!)
Adult Jazz’s debut album Gist Is has been on repeat for quite a while now on my phone.
6. Please disclose the most embarrassing music moment or concert you’ve seen or album you’ve bought (perhaps even shameful).
There was a point in my life where I owned a CD by The All American Rejects and a Now That’s What I Call Music CD. I have since lost both of those CDs which may or may not be a positive thing.
7. What are your hobbies and interests?
I enjoy making music a lot. I play drums in a band with some friends back in my hometown and when I’m not there playing with them I produce electronic music. I also really enjoy computers and I like to design websites in my spare time.
8. When you are not at work or KVSC where can you most likely be found?
I can most likely be found taking naps in various places between my classes or at a food place on campus gettin’ my grub on.
9. What’s the most challenging part of being a radio DJ?
For me, the most challenging part of being a radio DJ is multitasking.
What do you think is the future of radio?
I think that online audio streaming and live performance video streaming of radio performances is the future. It allows the content to be accessed by a larger audience and shared even easier. I also feel that traditional radio listening is a staple of modern culture and is not going anywhere anytime soon.
