Mark Benson 11pm-3am
MARK BENSON: (11PM-3AM) A Classic Rock personality for over 33 years, Mark got his start in radio in 1982. He’s married with two children who are now adults and no longer pay attention to him, but at least his cat does. Mark enjoys checking out parks and finding good places to eat. He can’t get enough of sports, especially football and baseball. He grew up in the `70s and loves Classic Rock and attending concerts. Mark’s favorite bands and artists are The Who, The Eagles, and Bob Seger.
WHIP: (3AM-7AM) Whip’s first taste of radio was when he was a 9-year-old calling into morning shows in Denver and winning sports trivia contests. The DJs hated him. In fact, he’s pretty sure he’s the reason radio stations instituted a “must be 12 years old to win” rule. He got his start in radio at his college’s station. After flunking, er, dropping out of school, he found a disc jockey job at a station in Santa Fe and has been chasing it ever since. Whip’s worked all over the country including New York, where he got into a well-publicized on-air spat with his co-worker, Howard Stern. Guess who won that one?! Whip’s been married for many years and has two kids in college. He’s a huge sports fan, especially baseball and football, and sings in a punk rock band.
Maria Danza 7AM-12PM
MARIA DANZA (7AM-12PM) Maria was born and raised on Long Island, New York, and then relocated to Dallas, where she attended the University of North Texas and graduated with a BA in Radio, TV and Film. Her love of music, and lack of ability to sing, dance or play instruments led her to radio, where she’s been for almost 30 years! She loves spending time with family, and volunteering at the animal shelter (she has two rescue dogs and one cat of her own). Maria loves collecting vintage Barbies from the 60’s and 70’s. Nostalgia is her thing!
Dan Dimaria 12PM-5PM
DAN DIMARIA: (12PM-5PM) Dan was born into a large family from New York so he learned early to either talk louder or get a microphone. He chose the latter and got his first job in radio when he was 14. Sports has always been a love of Dan’s whether he’s actively playing or watching from the sidelines. He’s big on family and friends too, and always enjoys nature with his hiking trips and his new hobby of firing up the BBQ smoker. Dan’s mostly casual all the way with 50% of his wardrobe being rock T-shirts.
Jay Philpott 5PM-11PM
JAY PHILPOTT: (5PM-11PM) Jay lives by his love of music and radio, and has truly lived the “town to town, up and down the dial” life of a radio/gypsy/rocker. He got his start in radio at the age of 18 and never looked back. Jay has worked in many genres of music and scored a lot of backstage moments and interviews with some of the greatest classic rockers ever: Van Halen, Don Henley, Pete Townsend, Rush, Robert Plant, Aerosmith
