I am currently djing it up from 9-12 at 91.7 KEOL, the radio station at my college.
First time on the air as an actual dj! Woo!
Yeah, I'm kind of stoked.
! There's more. Why on earth would I ever want to get involved on the radio in the first place?
Les Sarnoff, a dj at Kink FM, a station in Portland is pretty much my reason. I grew up listening to him every morning as little kid. Whenever I was eating breakfast and getting ready for the day or my parents were driving me and my brother to school, that was the station we listened to. He's also extremely involved in the community and from what I've heard, he's a really nice guy to boot. Plus, he has like the best voice ever. It's just so positive and optimistic. I remember listening to him on 9/11 as he was describing what was going on in NY, and it was almost like he was saying "Hey, everything is going to be okay. You'll see" despite the fact that such a terrible thing was occurring.
The other djs at the station are quite cool as well (though if you ask my dad his opinion, he'll likely go on a rant about how they all talk too much about pointless topics) and even when I would go listen to other local stations, I always seemed to end up wandering back to Kink, and eventually back to Les in the mornings.
