When my parents asked me what I was going to do with my life, there was only one answer – radio. I am extremely lucky to have been in this business for just over 20 years. I started in promotions, and can still remember my first time behind the mic like it was yesterday. I was nervous, but absolutely loved it. Working at the Banana has given me the opportunity to meet so many great people, like you - and some pretty kick ass rock stars too. Some of my favorite moments include hanging in studio with Vinnie Paul, painting with Spider One from Powerman 5000, meeting Slash, getting choked by Ozzy, and even interviewing Billy Bob Thornton. Never a dull moment to say the least, and I do not take it for granted. Thank you for reading this, and for being a part of the Banana family. Cheers!
