KTRX DJs

Monday-Friday 9am-2pm



 
Joe D.: X Middays

I got my start in radio 13 years ago as a intern. I was hired on as a part-time promo tech working with our 4-station cluster. From there, I was offered a full-time position as the promotions assistant for our cluster.

I spent a couple of years doing that while learning programming and doing weekends, overnights and eventually nights.

From there, I got more and more involved in programming and was eventually offered the APD. I spent two years in that position until my PD left. I then took over.

In my spare time, I'm a musician. I've been playing bass for about 25 years now and even spent a couple years touring with Joey Belladonna of Anthrax, playing bass in his solo band, Belladonna. That was one of the most amazing experiences! I got to see a lot of the country and meet some great people too!

My touring days are done, but I still like to play on weekends with my cover band, Dome.



 

Monday-Friday 2pm-7pm



 Pablo:  The Afternoon-X

My entertainment career started in the Minneapolis clubs, armed with turntables, my wicked imagination and something to say.

I landed my dream job at the 'evil rock station' in town and have been rockin' at 93X in Minneapolis for 18 years!

Afternoons On-Air, Music Director & Assistant Program Director are among the many hats I wear.

At night and on weekends, you will often find me entertaining the masses hositng many rock events, festivals, bar gigs and concerts.

I'm happy to come aboard on The-X and keep the music rolling throughout the afternoon, and into the evening.

 

Monday-Friday 7pm-12am


Woody:  The-X at night

I started my career in radio as a part-time jock on 93X in Minneapolis in 2011 and have worked my way to becoming the Evening host and Production Director for that cluster of three stations.

In that time, I've been a host on WGVX in two formats and now producing imaging for the station's latest incarnation, too.

I also do commercial voice over work independently, providing my pipes for the likes of many national commercial spots.

I'm very excited to be the evening host on 92.7 KTRX and turn the party up at night!
