When you put your key in the ignition and turn on the radio, what station would play right now? 101.1-FM. I love old school hip-hop!

What's the first album you bought? Thriller, duh.

What's the first concert you saw? Sha Na Na. It was right after Grease came out, so I knew all the words.

What's your favorite concert you've ever been to? NiN/JA (Nine Inch Nails/Jane's Addiction) tour in 2009.

What's the last song played on your music player? Jane's Addiction, "Ocean Size."

Preferred format: CD, vinyl, cassette, 8-Track or digital? I love CD's. My car isn't equipped for vinyl.

What's your favorite album? Jane's Addiction, Nothing's Shocking.

Who is your favorite singer or band? Jane's Addiction (this is getting obvious.)

Does your computer track how many times you've played something -- if so, what's at the top of the list? Not sure if iTunes does that, but I play "Get Low" a lot. Skeet, skeet, skeet!

What was your favorite new or new-to-you album from the past year? I re-found PJ Harvey's Rid of Me under the seat when I traded in my car in January. One of the best albums of all time.

What one song would you play if you had a worldwide radio audience? Sid Vicious' "My Way."

Who is your favorite local artist? Selfless.

What is your favorite local venue to see music? Is anything open anymore? Loved Cypress Lounge and Jugheads. I love Mesa Amphitheatre.

What is your favorite music video? "Thriller." I know, I'm a tool.
