    Weeknights on FM 94/9 - 12 Midnight to 5:30am

    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.

Beck Performed in a Total Stranger’s House on the ‘Late Late Show’

Hey, Beck, next time you feel like doing that WE have a hot tub! Just sayin'! (Shameless Bribe Attempt!)

Beck was on The Late Late Show last night — well, sort of, because he wasn’t really on set. Instead, the Morning Phase artist, and host James Corden, knocked on people’s doors trying to find a place for Beck to play. Eventually they found Tommy, a huge fan of Beck, who was thrilled (if completely flabbergasted) to see his house become a stage for a performance of “Country Down.” How cool would it be to get THAT knock on your door?!? But, actually gets even weirder!! Click here to read more:enter link description here


Nine Inch Nails Drummer Ilan Rubin's The New Regime Premieres 'Exhibit B' Album

Local Boy Does Good...And I Mean, SO, SOOOOO GOOD!!!

San Diegian, Ilan Rubin, has spent the past 5 plu years playing with Alt/Industrial Rock icons, Nine Inch Nails, and definitely seems to be following in Trent Reznor's footsteps with the release of his new album, Exhibit B, tomorrow, on which he, much as Reznor does with NIN, wrote, sung, recorded, produced, and played EVERY instrument on!! Impressive would be a massive understatement!! To say that we're EXTREMELY PROUD of Ilan Rubin would be a massive understatement as well!! Read more...
