Cactus Dave (6a-12n eastern)
When I was about 5 years old, I thought the radio was about the coolest thing as a kid. I would often sit in the back seat of my parent’s car and pretend to be the DJ. And that’s how it all began. Fast forward to my teens and I had my first show on the local TV cable channel that aired text messages on screen back in the day. There I was playing big band music. I had no knowledge of that genre but I didn’t care. I was nervous but having a blast! While in college I interned at 3 different stations in Philadelphia and had my first professional job in 1986. I grew up in Gloucester City NJ. I’m the oldest of 5 siblings. I’m an amateur bodybuilder and love everything about training in the gym and attending fitness expos.
Mark Phillips (12:00pm - 6:00pm eastern)
I first started in radio at age 14 working Part Time at my hometown station in Fairfeld, Iowa. I knew then I was hooked at being "On the Air." I've worked at stations in Iowa, Illinois, Florida and Dallas, Texas! My wife Heather and I have a 3 year old son named Austin Cole. I never knew how much having a child could change your life and really make you feel like you had a purpose. There's nothing I enjoy more than spending time with my family which also includes two dogs Buddy and Boomer. I grew up listening to Country Music and am a huge Country Fan especially of artists from the 80's and 90's! When I'm not working or spending time with my family I like to play guitar. I think a lot of people in radio are actually frustrated musicians--I'm one of them. I love to go to concerts and watch sports on TV. My son is turning into a NASCAR fan and loves to watch the cars go "vroom, vroom" around the track.
