How he got his start with KWVA: After attending a good amount of basement shows around Eugene, he met a lot of people involved in the radio station. From there, he was inspired to share his music and become a DJ as well.
Favorite moment so far: Doing a live ticket giveaway to the Sir Mix-A-Lot show. Callers called in and rapped 16 bars of a Sir Mix-A-Lot show on-air in order to win tickets!
Where you can see him in the future: As long as his schedule permits, he’s looking to snag a coveted 10 pm – 12 am slot one of these terms. But for now, you can catch him from 2-4 am Thursdays.
