 JAY RAMONE:  X Morning Show

 "It's only ROCK & ROLL but I like it..."  Jay Ramone is obviously my personal tribute to the R-A-M-O-N-E-S/ Ramones!!!  I've been working in radio for over 10 years and have had the distinct pleasure of getting to interview many of my musical heroes including: Henry Rollins, Seether, Three Days Grace, Hinder, All-American Rejects, Nickelback, Judas Priest, Motorhead, The Flaming Lips, Foo Fighters and many more.  Most of my friends are rock stars.  I'm also a total music dork who appreciates & loves music of all kinds.  A great song, is a great song… No matter what the genre… Henry Rollins told me that…

Monday-Friday 9am-2pm


Listen to the X starting at 9:00 am weekdays to catch the midday show with Eddie Barella.  Your workday will rock a little more!

 ALAN AYO:  X Afternooons

I love rock and roll radio. I used to listen to it when I was a kid, while sitting on the floor building huge Rebel Bases with Legos and Star Wars figures.  I stumbled into it in college, thinking I'd never be more than a behind-the-scenes guy taking care of the music library. That's when I was 18.  I'm still trying to figure out how in the world I got here, but what a ride I've had so far.  My misadventures in radio have had me broadcasting from Georgia, Texas, California and special one-off occasions from The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

I'm just a guy. I love collecting and playing rock music. I'm obsessed with the story of Bonnie and Clyde, and will talk your ear off about it.  I love animals, and working with rescues. I love being underwater in the ocean. I love cooking. I love being a Dad. I love sleep! Mostly, I love sleep.

 MARCONI:  X Nights

He died doing what he loved. Eating pancakes... I'd probably leave the house more often if I could shoot fireballs at everybody and collect a bunch of coins... Every time my phone dies, I die a little inside… If only I could make a career out of sweaty feet… Somewhere, somebody just discovered there isn't room to stick any more needles into their voodoo doll of me… Life is a drinking game and I'm kickin' some serious ass… I never got any gold stars as a kid. That's why I'm here…Prove to me that the ocean isn't made of fish tears. You can't… I take the extra out of extraordinary… Too bored to stay home, too lazy to go out… Just discovered this old timey internet called a "library"… My only goal in life is to die at some point… Take my advice, don't take my advice… Why are you reading my bio? I mean this is the second time today! It still says the same thing it did when you first read it!
