    Middays on FM 94/9 - 10am to 3pm

I have a dog named Moonwalk, I once made out with a carne asada french fry, and the most awesome band I've ever interviewed was Arcade Fire, backstage at Coachella where I was really sweaty and unfortunately, wearing an unflattering hat. You can't win 'em all. Let's party!
