When I was just five, I was trained by my older sister and her friends to stare at the bottom corner of the TV and to scream “It’s ON” when the words JOURNEY appeared on MTV. I would then hear the rumbling of feet charging down the stairs and into our family room as my sister and her friends would knock me out of the way to watch the latest hit from Steve Perry.
I became so good at this I was invited to her friends’ houses on a regular basis to do the same ‘staring’ for them. Later I found out that they were just babysitting me. Whatever, I was good. To this day all I need is one note of any popular Journey song and I can shout out, “Any Way You Want It!”
With this incredible musical talent learned at such a young age I was destined to be a lawyer or a doctor. Well, I know what you’re thinking, “How did you end up in radio?” Funny you should ask, because I don’t know. I was the last intern interviewed for my first radio job and I kept on thinking , “I’m never going to get this internship” and, “I wonder if Journey is on MTV right now?”
Apparently they felt bad for me, and gave me the internship. I then worked my way up to part-time employment in their promotions department. When I got my first check for $13.29 after working 80+ hours I knew this was the career for me.
After working several years in Philadelphia, I went to work for a Top-40 station in Austin, Texas, eventually finding my way to Orlando in 2000. Feel free to send me an email (email@example.com) and listen every weekday 3pm-7pm on MIX 105.1.
