I started in July 2004. We were in the LNC tower on the 31st floor! Loved the view, loved the building, loved the location!!! I have always been a huge fan of Lighting 100 and was so proud to become a part of the station. Was 2004 the last year of Uptown Mix or 2005? I know it ended soon after I started. It was my favorite concert series ever! Lots and lots of great memories from many shows.
