My first concert was a 7th grade date, which means it was exactly as awkward as you’d expect. Summerfest, 1998. Destiny’s Child opening up for Boyz II Men. Peak awkward phase.
Favorite place to take a visitor in Milwaukee?
Conejito’s Place on 6th and Virginia. It’s always the same — paper plates, “chopped meat” tacos, neon margaritas flowing from plastic jugs, plus an amazing old jukebox. If you’re lucky, you’ll get to clap along to the two-minute birthday song they play for people.
Best part of working at Radio Milwaukee?
Answering the phones during the membership drives. The atmosphere is so fun, and the support we get from listeners is overwhelming and humbling. It’s really a privilege to be able to thank members on the air, especially new ones.
