I am Radio Active and no that isnt my birth name how stupid are you to think it would be? I am a former radio host spending much of my time on a rock station which I loved and then the last few years I was on a Top 40 station which was fun. I love to talk and help people have a better day I do that by laughing, joking and often just making a fool of myself. I do not censor myself though I will never say anything to intentional hurt some one I feel people are too uptight today with what is said but I have been this way all my life I say what I feel and stick to it. This world is ugly and way too fucked up so I try to bring a little brightness to it however I can.
I spend most of my days trying to get back into radio which is the ultimate goal my main show “The Radio Active Show” is currently on hiatus but will be returning hopefully in summer 2017. Until then and even after I will do my daily podcast that we have called “Radio Active Today” which will deal with all the things that have happened that day. I still work with my long time producer “Ixchel” who has stuck by me through thick and thin. We have added two associate producers “Lebasi” and “JR” and will be bringing on a new one this summer.
Life is too short to worry about what people think about you I have found that is better to keep focused on what you are doing let them talk shit about you and use it to be your motivate to reach your peak. One of my favorite quotes from Bernie Mac in the movie “House Party 2” he is talking to “Kid” from “Kid N Play” one of my favorite groups growing up but he told him “Boy just be yourself. If people don’t like you for being yourself…FUCK EM!” that has pretty much been my life motto. Its a pretty hilarious clip which you can see here. This is what taught me when I was younger that life is too short to care what others think and I like to think that way of thinking is what draws people closer to my show. I am always me if people don’t like it that’s fine but I will never change being who I am for someone else and they have no right to ask me to.
I have lived all over the US and traveled more than I wanted to. I am married and live currently in Birmingham, AL. What else do you want to know you fucking stalker? OK well here are the basic radio questions that I answered a few years ago which not too many of the answers have changed…I am who I am if you don’t like it I don’t give a damn! If you want to contact me feel free to do so now for more about me:
Favorite Movie: Dude come on there are too many to list. If I had to pick just one I don’t think I could but I would say Tombstone, Ferris Buller’s Day Off or Rome and Juliet with Leo. I know its a chick flick but I love Shakespeare and that movie helped a lot of people that weren’t or aren’t Shakespeare fans figure out what was going on…LOL.
Favorite Music: Again man there are too many. I guess I could do it by genre which would have to be Rock and then Rap from the 90’s until like mid 2000’s because the rap that’s out now is trash. I like some old school and mid 90’s LL Cool J, Pac, and Naughty by Nature but I also get down with some Metallica, Guns N Roses, and more. I like to say I have a schizophrenic style of music.
Favorite Personality: Casey Kasem hands down.
Sworn Enemy: Ryan Seacrest. I mean I don’t really have any enemies but I don’t like him because he was bad for radio. I can not knock him for getting his and being successful that’s got nothing to do with it good for him for doing it but I don’t like what hes done for radio and have you heard him talk he smacks his lips too much.
What do you hate: I hate people that can not have a conversation with someone that has a different point of view or people that just cant talk to someone in general. They usually hide behind an excuse like “they intimidate me” or some other bullshit. Dude its just talking sit down grow up and do it. I cant stand people like that or people that live to please others like why should you give a fuck? I also hate judgmental people because they are so miserable in their life that they attack others those people are the ones that if they left this world no one would miss them.
Two Things You Cant Live Without: My wife and water. Obviously you cant live without water or air and my wife is my air she keeps me going with everything I do.
Favorite Color: Black
Favorite Place: The Studio.
Favorite Radio Story: When we were doing The Radio Active Show on a pop station we got a call from a nurse at a major children’s hospital who told me that the kids loved listening to me. I was shocked because you know my show isn’t really for kids I mean I spew profanity like its air so I was shocked but she told me the parents at first didn’t like me or the show then they saw how their kids reacted when I was on and how much they lit up and they let it slide. I have met many of them and keep in touch with as many of them as I can. That’s what I love about radio and that’s what radio is meant to be something you can turn to when you’re just having a shitty time.
