When you put your key in the ignition and turn on the radio, what station would play right now?Sirus Channel 42, The Joint.

What's the first album you bought? Wu-Tang Clan, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers.) Suuuuuuuuu!

What's the first concert you saw? Milli Vanilli -- don't judge. I won tickets from the radio station and I was like 9 or 10 years old.

What's the last song played on your music player? Nas and Amy Winehouse "Cherry Wine."

What's your favorite concert you've ever been to? Favorite concert had to be Stevie Wonder in L.A. during GRAMMY's weekend. He is oh so amazing -- "My Cherie Amour." Oh, and one more -- Lauryn Hill Rock the Bells last year. She actually did her thing.

Preferred format: CD, vinyl, cassette, 8-Track or digital? CD -- for me, it's easier.

What's your favorite album? Baduizm, by Erykah Badu. Not a song I don't love, and it gets me in the right kind of mood.

Who is your favorite singer or band? It changes -- maybe right now, the singer would be Jill Scott.

Does you computer track how many times you've played something -- if so, what's at the top of the list? Yes, by far, "Incarcerated Scarfaces," by Raekwon. I'm a hip-hop fan and even had the original purple tape.

What was your favorite new or new-to-you album from the past year? Kanye West, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, or Adele, 21.

What band do you wish was still together? The Fugees.

What one song would you play if you had a world-wide radio audience? Right now Alicia Keys, "Girl on Fire."

Who is your favorite local artist? I have to admit I need to get more in the groove with the Phoenix music scene. I do, however, love watching Dennis Rowland play here locally at some of the spots I frequent. He has so much soul!

What is your favorite local venue to see music? Marquee Theatre.

What is your favorite music video? The Notorious B.I.G., "One More Chance." Everyone was in it that video!
