Host Profile: Vael

What's the name of your show? Mixed Reviews

What's your show about and when does it air? Mixed Reviews airs on Mondays from 9:15 pm-10:15 pm. The show features Japanese rock and pop with a couple of variants in the mix. We decided on this since my co-host, Hiro, also enjoys Japanese music and we thought nobody on air would create a similar show. It's called Mixed Reviews since people will either love or hate the music we play, including the hosts. Hiro and I tend to disagree on certain songs one or the other may like.

Is there a story behind your on-air name?  It originated from when I played a ton of WoW. It was the character name I used and it was based upon the letter æ. I always liked terms like æther and such from fantasy novels and games and found Væl was a great name. I've used it ever since.

How long has your show been on the air? Since November 2, 2015.

Tell us about a funny incident that happened during your show. Rants for days from me and Hiro.

What do you like to do in your spare time? Play video games, mainly Kantai Collection, and other strategy games that may exist. I also enjoy reading fantasy novels. I play a ton of Magic the Gathering and am a professional Twitch stream watcher. I always have a Twitch stream or music running on my second monitor and Kancolle on the first.

Have you gotten any funny calls during your show? Someone told me to argue with Hiro more. It worked out well.
