Biography

First off, I'm originally a Hoosier and I don't look nearly as hippie (anymore) as the picture above portrays :). Been at the station since interning in the summer of '03. I sort of weaseled my way into most every department and am now on air Weeknights 7-Midnight. Also, co-host of The 615 and spend my free time at venues watching music & stopping bar fights.

Frightened Rabbit…

I can’t get over how much I adore this band.  This song is off a new EP they’re releasing later this month called “State Hospital”.  This is just an acoustic demo, but I think I might like it better than the EP version… DEMO DISEASE!!!  Always and forever :)
