CARL RUSSO:
1am-6am ET

Carl grew up with plenty of street & strip drag racing, stock car racing, and playing musical instruments and having a good time. He would then apply that energy into rock & roll and a career in radio. A major market radio personality, TV personality, and radio station owner, he did it all. His sense of civic duty was also a priority for Carl wherever he went. He served as a fireman in many cities where he’s worked.

JD-Bridget--Real-Classic-Rock

JD & BRIDGET:
6am-10am

It’s been pretty much rock and more rock since JD got into radio. From his air work to programming radio stations he’s kept busy. Co-hosting with Bridget now is one of his greatest thrills since they have so much fun working together. When not rocking the listeners JD is an avid sports fan. Football, hockey, basketball, and especially baseball since he played it through college. Movies are his other love getting swept away with the latest action adventure blockbuster and a big bucket of popcorn.

Bridget took the college route to get in radio, graduating with a degree in Radio & Television. Ever since she’s produced and hosted many air shifts playing classic rock to oldies. Bridget loves to be out-and-about, whether it’s rooting for the home team, checking out the latest watering hole, or eating at the newest restaurant in town. It’s always good beer drinking weather by the way. When it comes to Bridget’s taste in music, she’s an unapologetic Rockhead. Old rock, new rock, she loves it all.

DAN MITCHELL:
3pm-8pm

Dan has been in radio for 40 years. His love of music began in the 60’s when he’d hear the latest hits on the Jukebox at his father’s Pool Hall. He was hooked! Dan decided in 7th grade that he wanted to be a disc jockey and never let go of that dream. He started his career in his hometown of Denver in the summer of 1980 and spent the next 36 years on the air in the same city he grew up in. He’s been married to his lovely wife Kathleen since January of 81. They have a son and a daughter and two granddaughters! Dan is an avid basketball player, movie watcher and classic car lover.

Tony-Scott-WRUP-Real-Classic-Rock

TONY SCOTT
8p-1a

It all began with a knock on the radio station door of the American Forces Network in Taiwan, where a 17-year-old Tony Scott had moved with his family. That led to Tony working for some of America’s biggest radio stations. When not behind the mike Tony continues his delusional fantasy of being an Olympic skier, watching football, hitting as many concerts as he possibly can, and raising champion Golden Retrievers.

    How old is this? Been thinking about and trying to contact Crankin’ Frank Welch for some time now. I listened to jim back in the late 90’s and learned a lot from him.

  4. Aaron Melchiori says:

    Michelle Michaels too!!! I miss you both I listened to you and Frank so much growing up in the late mid-late 90’s before radio died it was wonderful! I learned a ton from you guys and actually spoke to you both on-air multiple times and through chat/email.

    What a nice surprise to be remembered! I’m on the air in Osage Beach, MO at 93.5 Rocks. I also work for some other stations but they aren’t rock formats. Go to 935rocksthelake.com to listen with the link at the site. BTW, Frank retired after they kicked us to the curb.
    Rock On,
