Radio and Trying To Make a Difference
Well I'm back on the proverbial rock seat again; I'm so excited to be doing what I love. I took a bit of a break to hang with family and friends, but now I'm back. It's funny how things work out in life. I attempted to go back to my old station, but I wasn't able to get back on with them after an 8 year run. I didn't have a job so I needed to create something for myself.
I got my start at a 50,000 watt station outside of Washington, DC working on 93.3 WFLS as the "Country Kickin Puerto Rican, Robbie Rodriguez" on "Virginia's Best Country", then I moved into the rock seat from 7 - midnight on 99.3 WYSK "The Rock Alternative" and lastly I took over for Rich Creeger from time - to- time on Rogaine Rock for Classic Rock 96.9. I've learned a lot and I had a blast!
As they say, things happen for a reason! I'm currently on the air as the Co - Host for the Francy & Friends show on Blogtalkradio.com. Francy provided that needed spark to peak my interest once again. I'm a huge fan of Hell's Kitchen, and Francy was doing a show with several of the contestants from this years Season 9 competition. I jumped at the chance to call into the show. I've been a big fan of HK for the past eight years.
Season 9 is a bit different, most of the Chef's are out and about, so when the opportunity hit, I called in. I was wrapped up in Francy's show as a simple listener. I was able to speak with Chef's Will, Paul, Jennifer and Jamie of Season 9! It was a great experience and they are truly great people! Long story short, by the end of the show I had the job as a Co - Host on Francy & Friends! I'm currently working with the show and look forward to this great partnership. I've also just recently launched my own station and show called "The Temple of Rock" which is a brand new show on Blogtalkradio.com/RockRadio993. I'm the Host and Program Director on the show! My goal is to create a 24-7 Online station which can gain advertisement and sponsorship to not only assist me, but others looking for work.
