Music fan since birth, think my first love was the Beatles, my dad is a big fan. Simon & Garfunkle played an important part of my childhood listening to it driving with my grandma. Got an attitude and moved to 80's rock like Duran Duran and Poison, upgraded to Skid Row. I remember in middle school, my older friend in high school came in with a new band shirt displaying the now iconic image of a girl playing with a gun as opposed to crayons. The love for Pearl Jam and 90's grunge rock was born. We'll never forget you, Shannon Hoon! (You thought I was going to say Kurt Cobain, hell no!) Went to college and was pulled into the Phish & Dead scene, I became a serious tape trader and with a buddy became the source at RIT for such music. Married and had kids and now listen mainly to The Postal Service, DCFC, Nada Surf and of course the complementing Pandora station. My tastes are greatly influenced by my mood, I love to make mixes on the fly, thank you ipod! I should have been a DJ, well I guess I have options when I retire.
