Weeknights (7PM – 12 Midnight)

I landed my first radio gig at a full-tilt rock station when I was still in college. I’ve worked at a bunch of really cool radio stations over the years but I’ve always wanted to get back to my roots. Bring on the Led Zeppelin, The Stones and Aerosmith. I’m thrilled to be at KFOX playing the Best Music that ever was! I’ve lived in Bay Area since the 80s’ and have seen some amazing live shows here, one of my all time favorites–The English Beat opening for The Clash at the Civic Auditorium. Were you there? My husband and I have two sons and one ridiculously spoiled rescue dog. My boys live in Brooklyn now, which is a very cool place to visit, particularly if you like beer gardens, bagels and pizza. We love hiking and biking around the great outdoors, but I’m equally happy to stay indoors and binge on Netflix for days on end.

Besides my life on the radio, you can also catch me on KOFY TV. Hawaii is my hometown, so I’m always looking for some “ono” Hawaiian BBQ–maybe I’ll see you in line at L & L one of these days.

Who’s Smarter: Dogs or Cats?

My cat-loving friends are convinced their feline companions are highly intelligent, while I’m certain my dogs are clearly smarter than any purring kitty. Now scientists have a tool to count neurons in animals leading them to proclaim that dogs have twice as many neurons as cats.  For perspective, the cerebral …
