K-Tel DJ Profile

I grew up on the radio and devoured everything rock-and-pop I could get my hands on. Scraped together my allowance to buy my own first album - it was either Rush's Moving Pictures or Pat Benatar's Crimes of Passion (or, um, maybe the Bee Gees' Sgt. Pepper). Before that, I had to tape Casey Kasem's Top 40 countdown off the Sunday radio and bribe my older sister to tape her Van Halen records for me. Fave genres are protopunk/garage, punk, post-punk, new wave, power pop, and I have a big soft spot for '70s AM cornball pop-rock. Once wrote a fan letter to DEVO, but my love was not reciprocated. At UNC-Chapel Hill, I interned for the now-defunct Moist/Baited Breath indie label, and wrote music reviews and conducted band interviews for The Daily Tar Heel.
