There are two things it seems everyone knows about San Diego: 1, that the weather is perfect; and 2, that KGB is the rock-solid rock station. It's one of a handful of radio stations in America that have been true to rock n roll…and no other format…for 4 non-stop decades. It's an honor and a thrill to be side by side with Coe Lewis doing mornings in this damn near perfect town! Coe will tell you…it's all about the KGB listeners. When you win, we win. It's up to you and to us to keep rock alive and well in San Diego!
Here's my radio deal: In the teenage years: Soldering iron in hand, built a 100 watt pirate station in Dix Hills, New York. A FCC visit to my parent's house ended the fun 3 months later. Comedy. After college and for 20 years (almost to the day) I was the WBAB/Long Island VP/Programming and Morning DJ. Favorite moment: The WBAB No-Skin, No-Win Tanning Contest. Judging by the babes who's pictures line the walls of KGB, I know you've witnessed some of those yourself.
The next decade was spent as Program Director and DJ at KGB's sister station, WAXQ, Q104.3/New York. Favorite moment: When the legendary WNEW-FM declared that rock was dead and that they were changing formats. We jumped in and went, over time, to #1 Adults in New York. Manhattan is a one-of-a kind place to live and work.
In 2008, I got hired as Program Director and Afternoon DJ at KLOS, to the north in LA. We had plenty of fun there as well, with KLOS being one of the few stations to share in KGB's legacy of 4 decades of rock loyalty. Got to love Southern California…no doubt!
It's the middle of 2012 and here we are. I'm hoping your support of rock in San Diego will bring the legendary KGB to even greater heights. We're all in this together!

Check out these 10 Presidential Facts you didn't know!
Last Friday, 15 women vied for the title of 2012 Miss Bum Bum Brasil, which if you remember from earlier this year, is the world’s foremost competitive pageant for determining which Brazilian woman has the nicest backside. Of the women in this year’s contest, 25-year old Carine Felizardo (middle above) was declared the winner. Andressa Urach finished in second, while Camila Vernaglia took home 3rd place. In our book, though, they’re all champions.
As for her new title, Felizardo was incredibly humble and grateful for this supreme posterior honor.
“I am overwhelmed, very, very happy,” the winner said, choking back tears. “I would like to thank those who voted for me, those who believed in me, my family, my friends.”
And before you get ahead of yourselves in thinking that the scandal involves cries of sexism and exploitation, just know that Brazilian women really love this contest, too.
“This is ridiculous,” Leila Chequi, a Brazilian female reporter working for the Japanese television network Fuji, told AFP.
“I am here just for work. But if they (the contestants) don't mind showing their bums to the whole world, why not?” she added.
So then what’s the hubbub, bubs? Well, like I said, the competition took place last Friday, but the pictures (after the jump, obviously) don’t end on the stage. It turns out that the first and second runners-up took themselves a little vacation together, and according to The Sun – “... the two comforted each other on a boat, kissing and cuddling on the deck.”
