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.

A couple of days after it was revealed that Arcade Fire would be scoring the upcoming Spike Jonze film “her” – we find out that Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs will be contributing as well.
Karen and Jonze have worked together in the past – with the YYY’s frontwoman scoring the directors last feature film Where the Wild Things Are. You can hear a piece of the track in the films trailer (which looks incredible) below.
“It’s a movie set in the slight future of L.A. and Joaquin Phoenix’s character buys the world’s first artificially intelligent operating system,” Jonze has explained of the film. “It basically turns into a human, this entity, this consciousness, on his computer.” Ultimately, the relationship evolves “into something more romantic,”
Her will be in theatres starting November 20th
There aren’t a lot of people in the punk rock community that almost everyone universal agrees is awesome. Tim Armstrong is on that list, Mike Ness and a handful of others. Minor Threat/Fugazi/ Dischord Records guy Ian MacKaye is certainly on that list. He’s royalty – though he’d be the first to say that notion is absurd (which makes him royalty!!!!! – so complicated)
When approached about a recent line of authorized Minor Threat shirts that Urban Outfitters (not punk – in case you were wondering) just put on sale for $28 a pop – MacKaye – as with most things – had a very clear stance.
"I just don't give a fuck about T-shirts," – he explained to the Washington City Paper
He explained further that because of rampant bootlegging – he had outsourced Dischord’s t-shirt business to an outside company.
"It's fucking absurd the amount of bootlegs [that] are out there,"
"My time is better spent doing other things," MacKaye said.
He cited the time and energy he spent tracking down bootelggers as motivation behind the business move.
"Do I think it's absurd? Yes, I certainly do," he said. "Motherfuckers pay $28; that's what they wanna pay for their shirts."
And that’s about all there is to say about that .
