On air: Saturdays 10am-4pm
Before moving to LA in early 2013 I worked at a radio station in Seattle for 14 years. In that time I got to meet a lot of cool people and do a lot of cool things. ALT 98.7 has that unique combination of respect for the music and the ability to have fun on the air that I loved so much at my gig in the Pacific Northwest. It's a perfect fit as I learn to live and love southern California. I'm lucky to be working here - this station rules.
Important Personal Details:
I've got a tattoo of Sasquatch on my right arm.
I would like to see Lou Reed before he dies or I die.
2 of my cats have only 3 legs.
Early this morning Pearl Jam update their web-site with a PJ Countdown Clock – indicating that next Monday, July 8th at 10am a specific portion of their web-site will be unlocked.
Though the band remains mum on exactly what will be revealed – it can safely be assumed that this announcement will have something to do with the new single - reportedly called “Mind Your Manners” and possibly specific details on the bands forthcoming record.
Early indications were that the new single would be coming July 16th – though Revolt has learned through sources close to the band that we will likely be getting the track earlier than that. It now seems that could happen as soon as next Monday.
A select few in the 98/7 hallways have heard “Mind Your Manners” and certainly agree with what Triple M radio in Melbourne Australia said about the new song.
'You'll wet your pants over this. Think 'Spin the Black Circle'. Short, sharp, hard and loud,' he said.
'If it's any indication of the album that's to come (rumoured October release), the guys have picked up where they left Backspacer and added turbo charging. PJ fans are gonna love it.'"
Look forward to high profile gigs from Pearl Jam later in the year in Canada, Wrigley Field and VooDoo Fest and even though those are the only “official” band activities on the schedule in the coming months - all signs point too much more in 2013.
