On-Air Host for KQRA

Pantera, 1995

There's a strong possibility it was Wilson Phillips, but I tell everyone it was Metallica's Black Album.

Unofficially, it was Peter Steele of Type O Negative. The guy I was dating at the time was supposed to do it but he chickened out so I did it for him. But my first official interview as a radio host was LaJon Witherspoon of Sevendust.

I think my first dead air experience was sometime during my first few months on-air. I lost my train of thought mid-sentence and I completely froze; I didn't know what to say or do. I'm not even sure how I recovered from that! I must have figured it out because 7 years later, here I am!
