Monday-Friday 6am-10am


The Morning-X with Jax

I'm a rare breed of sports fanatic/music nerd/movie buff/pop culture enthusiest. With passions for all of that, what better way to display my useless knowledge than through radio. That was my conclusion after at one point thinking to myself, that I could do Carson Daly's job better than him.

I'm still working on it.
However, this all didn't come about until I already had 4 business degrees (seriously, that happened). But that's when my passion for alt rock/indie rock/and classic rock took over. Since then, radio has taken me from my hometown area of St. Louis, MO, to northern Illinois, to Arkansas, and now Ardmore, Oklahoma.
I, for one, couldn't be happier with the result.

Random facts about me: I'm either watching Netflix i.e; (House Of Cards, Arrested Development), HBO i.e; (Game Of Thrones, True Detective), analyzing episodes of Mad Men, or watching any and every movie that intrigues me. This, of course, is when my time is not occupied with sports. I'm a St. Louis guy so yes, I love the St. Louis Rams, Cardinals, and Blues. And my fandom for these teams takes things to a whole new level. Other than that, I run a lot and take care of my one-eyed cat, Slade Wilson (if you get that reference, then I think you're awesome). 


 

Monday-Friday 10am-2pm



 EDDIE BARELLA: X Middays

I love all that is radio, especially the part where I gets to "borrow" free stuff out of the prize closet. I got my start in radio at the age of 15-years-old--that's when I gave up on becoming a doctor, and having a respectable career. But, I couldn't be happier offering my commentary on the crazy world we live in, while playing my favorite music. I’m a huge music fan, with an eclectic taste for everything that is rock; from metal to classic rock, to indie hipster rock and alternative.

When I’m not on air, you'll find me avoiding my parole officer, looking for the next big thing on Spotify, watching too many hours of Netflix, enjoying a local concert, or pretending to be in shape while awkwardly working out at the gym.

 

Monday-Friday 2pm-7pm



 ALAN AYO:  The Afternoon-X

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.   

Monday-Friday 7pm-12am


DAN:  The-X at night

I come from a large Italian American family from New York, so I learned early on the way to be heard is to yell the loudest or get a microphone. My dad was a radio guy so I got bit by that bug as a kid hanging around the studio, which probably means my dad should’ve been arrested for child endangerment.

My first job was as a sportswriter when I was 14. The editor who hired me had only talked to me on the phone and email, so I got hired because he thought I was an adult. The joke’s on him because I still mostly refuse to be a responsible adult. Or possibly, that jokes on me. I did go to college for a weekend or two, but I was an Acting Major. Seriously, I majored in how to pretend to be someone else. I didn’t really think a lot of employers would see “classically trained liar” as a strong trait, so I kicked around the country for a bit and worked all sorts of jobs. Some of the odder ones were haunted house clown, cowboy themed waiter, and drapery salesman. Eventually I found my way into radio, and here we are.

I don’t know if there is much I enjoy more than doing radio. Find a job you like and you’ll never work a day in your life. However, on the occasion I’m thrown out of the studio, I love sports and losing too much money on my fantasy football teams. I also enjoy working out, cooking, binge watching TV shows, playing an occasional video game, and reading a book every now and again to pretend to be smart.  It’s rare that I do any of those things without having headphones and listening to the music I love. I don’t just play it on the air; it’s the soundtrack to my life.
