Currently the host/producer/booker for The Rodent Hour, a one-hour show that features interviews with independent musicians along with a curated playlist of music from Brooklyn and beyond the borough.
My love of music is bred in bone, as I spent my high school and college years watching the emergence of the Canadian independent music scene in the northern city of Edmonton, Alberta. Long winter nights were spent in the middle of a thundering local music scene while the university radio station – CJSR – brought in emerging acts still on the bus to the big time. The Shakin’ Pyramids, D.O.A., NoMeansNo, The Blasters, X, The Hoodoo Gurus, Teenage Head, Rank and File along with locals SNFU, Troc ’59, Route 66, Jerry Jerry and the Sons of Rhythm Orchestra and The Thieves … every weekend… and, as I like to think, I saw it all in one of the greatest origin stories a future radio host could ever wish for.
What I'm looking to do is to develop an overnight show that is broadcast live and serves as a real-time, music recommendation engine that features emerging artists from America and around the globe.
