Jackie Morales, What Are You Listening To?

Jackie Morales

Morales is the mid-day DJ for 101.5-FM Jamz.

When you put your key in the ignition and turn on the radio, what station would play right now? Of course, 101.5!

What's the first album you bought? I honestly don't go out and buy very many albums, but when I heard Mariah Carey's Emancipation of Mimi, I had to own it! Was my very first album I bought.

What's the first concert you saw? Oh my gosh! My first full-on concert was Santana and Ozomatli. Wow, that was years ago! Was a great concert, though!

What's your favorite concert you've ever been to? Hands down, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross and Nicki Minaj! Me, my fiancé, my son, and my nephew all sat front row and had the most amazing time ever! I seriously danced as if no one was watching! Was a blast!

What's the last song played on your music player? 2 Chainz featuring Drake, "No Lie." It's been on repeat!

Preferred format: CD, vinyl, cassette, 8-Track or digital? Nothing can ever touch vinyl! Shouts to all my DJ's who can rock that vinyl on the tables!

What's your favorite album? This is such a tough one to answer! I listen to all kinds of different music, therefore I have my different faves, but the one album that has been in my player for a minute has been Drake's Take Care, so I guess you can say that is my fave for now.

Who is your favorite singer or band? Singer, I have to say Adele. She is just -- wow! I'm also a huge fan of my brother David Morales' band, The Nate Williams Band. Three words: amazing sax player!

Does you computer track how many times you've played something -- if so, what's at the top of the list? You know, the last time I checked, it was Alicia Keys' "No One." For some strange reason, I listen to tons of Alicia Keys when I'm on my computer.

What one song would you play if you had a world-wide radio audience? I would have to say The Weeknd featuring Drake, "The Zone."

Who is your favorite local artist? Does Jordin Sparks count? If so, she is my fave.

What is your favorite local venue to see music? I love outdoor venues, so I'm going to have to go with the best one here in Phoenix, Ashley Furniture HomeStore Pavilion.

What is your favorite music video? Birdman featuring Lil Wayne, "Fire Flame"! (This happens to be the same song I was dancing like no one was watching at Lil Wayne's concert!)
