    Weeknights on FM 94/9 - 7pm to Midnight

    Hi. I'm Christy. Carter, that is. Yeah...Christy Carter. Many people take living in San Diego for granted, but I'm FROM friggin' Detroit!!! Point is, I'm SUPER grateful to be working here in a city as gorgeous as S.D., and at a station as awesome as FM94/9!!! And since I AM safely far enough away from that gray, horrid city, I FINALLY feel it's safe to say THIS...Ted Nugent SUCKS!!! HA!!! Thanks. That felt good. They actually execute you for saying that in Detroit.
    I'm a Scorpio who's COMPLETELY addicted to Nine Inch Nails, Tab soda, Stephen King, and American Horror Story. I love other, less morbid-ish things, too, though! Like Muse, Arctic Monkeys, Radiohead, The Cure, Pepper, and Remy Zero, puppies, kittens, and unicorns. I also can't get ENOUGH of hearts, and glitter, and Hello Kitty, and frilly, pink things.
