When you put your key in the ignition and turn on the radio, what station would play right now? Either 100.7 FM or 102.5 FM -- I'm a country girl at heart.

What's the first album you bought? Tiffany -- record, not CD.

What's the first concert you saw? Green Day at the Arizona State Fair.

What's your favorite concert you've ever been to? Jimmy Buffett in Miami. Meeting him is on my bucket list.

What's the last song played on your music player? "Future History" by By Lightning!

Preferred format: CD, vinyl, cassette, 8-Track or digital? I don't have a preference, as long as I love the songs.

What's your favorite album? I'd have to say Bob Marley Legend. I love every single song on that album and never get tired of dancing to it.

Who is your favorite singer or band? I don't have an all-time fave, but I can listen to Bob Marley anytime, anywhere.

What band do you wish was still together? I liked when Steve Perry was with Journey.

Does you computer track how many times you've played something -- if so, what's at the top of the list? Crazy Game of Poker by O.A.R. I run to this song on repeat, as it's almost 8 minutes long, and I like to run for about 30 min, so I listen to it four times in a row.

What was your favorite new or new-to-you album from the past year? The Eat Pray Love soundtrack -- I like all the songs.

What one song would you play if you had a worldwide radio audience? Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwoʻole "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." I could listen to him sing for hours.

Who is your favorite local artist? Roger Clyne.

What is your favorite local venue to see music? Any venue that allows me to dance like an idiot outside -- whether it's at The Vig Arcadia, Handlebar-J, Harold's, or Ashley Furniture HomeStore Pavilion -- if it's outside and I can dance with my beer, I'm one happy camper.

What is your favorite music video? "Thriller."
