Thank you for the welcome...still getting my feet wet, I don't think I've posted at all in the baseball sections yet.
I DJ'ed for ClassX for a little while, first doing a Saturday afternoon shift and moving into a Saturday night "hair metal" show until I couldn't do it anymore because of work. I took the show to syndication and kept it going for another 2 years on other stations before handing it over to someone else because I was getting a bit burnt out producing and hosting it each week. I don't have anything to do with radio anymore, but still review albums on my personal blog and have really branched out with my tastes. If I was still doing the radio gig, I probably would have never heard of bands like Alabama Shakes, Two Gallants, or JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound. Not really rock (well I guess Two Gallants is) but they are some of my favorite CDs right now.
ClassX is great. Another Cincinnati-area station that I've been listening to alot is "The Project" at 100.7. Because of that station, I have been introduced to Twenty One Pilots, Muse, and others that have been all but ignored in the Cincinnati market. It's Clear Channel, so I'm sure I'll get sick of it eventually, but for now the music is fresh enough to keep me listening.
