Hi. My name is Shawn. I live and breath Rock Radio. Honestly it's all I've ever wanted to do. Well, there was a stint where I was determined to become a Ninja Turtle, but I kept hitting myself in the groin with nunchucks. Honestly the turtle part was surprisingly easy, but I digress. I was born and raised in Montana (don't hassle me, I'm local), but I've rocked the airwaves all over America. My scope doesn't just boil down to Rock Radio though. I cover live rock and metal shows along with professional concert photography, interviews, and everything in between. Ya, it's a pretty rad gig. Now I've returned to the Blaze with my homeboy K.C to elevate your radio to the next level, so start stretching.
