Host Profile: DJVamps

What's the name of your show? EVM

What's your show about and when does it air? My show is all about bringing the lesser known or sometimes the older artists in the world of EDM to the air. These guys are fairly good, maybe they haven't signed a record deal or they have a few songs, but what they do have is good music. But other than pushing these little guys, I just like EDM in general so I will bring just about anything I see as good out. My show airs Tuesdays 6 pm to 7 pm and Fridays 9 am to 10 am.

Is there a story behind your on-air name?  The story behind it goes back about 8 years when I was active in a multi game clan of players called Death Crusaders. we played several different games together and had a lot of fun. When I joined them I was playing a vampire in Forsaken World. Since it was a tradition of new players to start with DC then something, I ended up with DCVamps, and that's just how I always identified in games and when I was trying to think of a host name I thought, "why not replace the C with a J" and now you have DJVamps. 

How long has your show been on the air? Since 10/18/2016.

What do you like to do in your spare time? Spare time, lets see. I like to play video games, (surprising I know) listen to music, program robots, and the occasional game of Magic the Gathering. Occasionally when I'm very bored, I'll just go pass out on my couch and wait for the next day since I was unable to think of anything to do.

Have you gotten any funny calls during your show? Not yet, though as a solo host, and being so late at night, I don't think I will get too many requests, but then again, I could be proven wrong.

If you knew you were going to be stranded on a desert island and could choose only 10 songs, what would they be?

In no particular order, and subject to change:
Flying High - DJSplash Remix
Gunmetal Black - Varien
PLANETARY PUNISHMENT -Downlink
iNSaNiTY - CircusP, NekoSheyS
Natural Disaster(Win & Woo remix) - Molly Moore
OUTBURN KAMIKAZE - MASA Works Design
The fox's wedding - MASA Works Design
Pika Girl - S3RL
Bassline Kickin - Pegboard Nerds
Bass is kicking - DJSplash

What is one of your most memorable concert experiences? Concert experiences... Does preforming in the grand stand finale of the 2013 Diamond Jubilee New Years Day Parade in London count as a concert experience?

Tell us something about yourself that people might find surprising. I sometimes wish I was a cat. 

Host Profile: J.L. Massimino

What's the name of your show? The J.L. Massimino Show

What's your show about and when does it air? Exposing listeners to music that I like. My tastes are all over the place and while my show typically plays "alternative" music, I enjoy playing whatever is in my brain that week. It airs Wednesdays from 9 pm to 11 pm.

Is there a story behind your on-air name?  J.L. - my initials. My family has always called me J.L. - there were way too many people named Jack in my family and they didn't want me to be saddled with the name "Little Jack" for my entire life. J.L. sounds like a fake radio name so it works!

How long has your show been on the air? April 27, 2016 was my first show.

Tell us about a funny incident that happened during your show. The Improv Club meets during the first hour of my show so I learned pretty quickly to keep the studio door closed; a loud scene startled me before a talk break on my first show!

What do you like to do in your spare time? My wife, son and I spend time at home, catching up on our always too full DVR when we aren't busy going to concerts or doing things around Flint. I try to make time to hang in Detroit with my brother as often as our busy schedules permit. I have a driveway full of cars so something's usually in need of repair. Music is almost always on, either old favorites or something new, because silence is a real bummer.

Have you gotten any funny calls during your show? One time someone called in a request for a song from Glee. Yes, I watched the show but no, I don't really want to hear any of the songs from it again.

What is one of your most memorable concert experiences? I've been fortunate to have gone to over 100 concerts in the last decade-plus and have had many memorable experiences. One of the craziest was October 5, 2015 in Detroit. My brother and I had seen Kraftwerk once before, in 2005, and it was an amazing show. They came through again on their 3D tour and put on a visually stunning show at the Masonic Temple. Afterward, my brother and I drove over to MOCAD for the after party. The party was insane - the founders of Detroit techno (Juan Atkins, Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson) all did DJ sets and then - THEN! - Kraftwerk arrived. They spent some time in the DJ booth and then just hung around the crowd. We got to stand a few feet from one of the most influential electronic musicians in the world! It's a night my brother and I will never forget.

Tell us something about yourself that people might find surprising. I still prefer and purchase physical media (CDs, vinyl, cassettes) to digital media. The convenience of mp3s and streaming is nice, but the fidelity just isn't there.

In the movie "WKUF: The Untold Story", who would you cast as yourself? Steve-O, only because I look somewhat like him.
