The Nightime Mashup…
A mixture of Old, New, and everything in between.
Where are you from?
I proudly hail from the boring New York City Suburb of Croton-On-Hudson, NY.
What music inspires you?
Any music that gives me an adrenaline rush or I enjoy listening to, I will be happy to share for the world to hear.
My first love is 1960’s and 1970’s classic rock music, but I also enjoy listening to modern day party music, classic folk rock, and just about anything else that strikes my fancy.
Why did you choose the name “The Nighttime Mashup” for your show?
Brainstorming in my room on a sultry August day, I wanted a show that not only appealed to my music tastes, but to everyone else’s too. Wanting a larger audience and an ever-growing fan base, I choose, THE NIGHTIME MASHUP. It sounds catchy, all over the place, and well MASHED POTATOEY.
What inspired you to take up your own radio show for KSC?
During my senior year of High School, I had inquired about an internship at a small community radio station: 1460 AM WVOX in New Rochelle, NY. Unsure of what to expect, I went into the internship with an open mind having absolutely zero experience in the radio industry.
In the few months at the station, the tools and life lessons I was taught were invaluable. I learned how to synopsize news stories, spoke over the air with other interns, and even conducted interviews as a journalist with people in New Rochelle.
Above all however, the coolest experience came when I had to wake up at 4:45 in the morning for Bob Marrone’s “Good Morning Westchester” which started at 6am.
When the internship ended, I knew I wanted to get involved with WKNH KEENE 91.3. Getting my feet wet last year as a freshman, I didn’t hesitate and hit the ground running with the “Justin Wam Bam Yams Rock N Roll evening show.”
Now a sophomore, I look forward to serving the radio station as its Program Director! While I know it will not be easy, I look forward to the challenge that lies ahead.
