Needless to say, I suffered through a lot of hangovers behind that board but it all paid off when the PD who hired me moved on and I was offered the position. I took over as PD and moved to afternoons on March 1, 2010 and have been here since. Continue Reading »

One, to meet with the Crew Stadium and solidify the venue for Rock On The Range and two, to meet the Program Director of the rock radio station in Columbus. Those were the two meetings we took on a cold October day back in 2006…that’s it. The venue and the local rock radio station. We met with Hal Fish of The Blitz on this day as we KNEW in order to pull off the idea of producing a major destination ROCK festival it was crucial to get the support of the in-market rock station.
