Casey Kasem;'s 80's Countdown
3PM-7PM

AJ REDD





It all started on a warm summer night on the 26th of May, 19 something or other, in the small town of Maryville, Missouri. From the day I hit the Earth, I have always know I would be involved with music in some way or another. From school and show choirs to performing at dances and on-stage anywhere anyone would watch, I have always had a beat in my head and a glide in my stride. In high school is when I finally found out about the deejay on a field trip to our local radio station and from then on I have NEVER been without two turntables and a microphone. My love for music then went from being on-stage performing to actually producing and engineering in the studio. I started college at Columbia College in Chicago and finished in Orlando, Fla. when I graduated from Full Sail University. I went back to Chicago and started to intern at Chicago Recording Company and from there went to NYC and Philadelphia working in small studios and production labs! After everyone and their brother decided to build their own home studios, it was time for a change. So I moved to Tyler, Texas. Yeah, I know… Who just moves to Tyler? Well, it was one of the best decisions I have made so far in my life. And who would have guessed I would eventually. . .Enter. . . Radio! I had to start from scratch and relearn everything because going from the studio to a radio production room is totally different. But needless to say, I have made it from intern to part-time on-air to Production Director and now Assistant Program Director! I’m still fairly young and always looking ahead. I want to thank you for spending time with me every weekend right here on Sunny 106.5!
