When you put your key in the ignition and turn on the radio, what station would play right now? 95.5-FM. It's an old school station. It plays mostly music from the 50's to the 90's.
What's the first album you bought? I bought a New Kids on the Block tape when I was 9. It didn't change my life, but it made me happy.
What's the first concert you saw? Dave Matthews Band.
What's your favorite concert you've ever been to? I don't go to a lot of concerts, but I attend lots of musicals. My recent favorite is The Lion King -- it was incredible both visually and musically.
What's the last song played on your music player? "Where Do I Go?" It's a song from the musical Hair. I listen to a lot of Broadway.
Preferred format: CD, vinyl, cassette, 8-Track or digital? Well, I have fond memories of listening to records as a child, but I prefer digital for the convenience factor.
What's your favorite album? Tori Amos, Little Earthquakes and Boys for Pele.
Who is your favorite singer or band? Tori Amos -- I don't think any other female artist can touch her lyrically or musically.
What band do you wish was still together? The Fugees. They were one of the first rap artists I ever really listened to and one of the few I actually respect.
Does your computer track how many times you've played something -- if so, what's at the top of the list? No, it doesn't. If it did, I'm sure it's a Broadway song. What can I say, I'm a theater geek.
What was your favorite new or new-to-you album from the past year? Sara Bareilles, Once Upon Another Time.
What one song would you play if you had a world-wide radio audience? "Come on Eileen." I don't know anyone who doesn't dance like a fool when they hear it.
Who is your favorite local artist? Hot Birds and the Chili Sauce. I love a good funk band!
What is your favorite local venue to see music? Rhythm Room.
