Altruistic Blend

Despite popular perceptions,I did NOT want to learn to play guitar to get girls. Nor did I want to become a dj to be a "personality" and hopefully land a morning gig somewhere so I could banter wittily about pop culture and participate in the insidious national dialogues about Tiger Woods or who got voted off Dancing With The Stars last night. I assure you,my motives are MUCH more altruistic than that. I just wanna share my passion for music and play you some good tunes to hopefully put an extra bounce in your step on a Monday morning (because THAT'S when you need it the most!) The bottom line is I'm just a music fan who happened to be blessed (or cursed,depending on when you ask me) with a "radio ready" voice. Not a music "snob" (and I believe that's an important distinction,witness my Moldy Cheese Day shows http://wrir.org/x/modules/news/article.php?storyid=11082 for chrisakes!),a music FAN. I literally get GIDDY when I hear a great hook and I just want to play it for whoever will listen in hopes that it'll make them GIDDY as well. And what could possibly be a better calling in life than to want to make people GIDDY??!!

The girls were just an added perk AFTER the fact!

Puking aural sunshine every Tuesday night from 11p.m.-1a.m.!


Enzo is a veteran dj of over 30 years in clubs and radio. He's played everything from hole in the wall punk clubs, to European style techno clubs, and everything in between. He's also done Top 40, Hot A.C., and Modern Rock commercial radio.

Disillusioned by the homogenous wasteland the medium had become, he left radio at the turn of the millennium.

Quite by accident, one night while walking home, he dropped his keys in front of 1621 W.Broad St.

As he bent down to pick them up, he noticed the small, hand written paper sign on the door that read "WRIR Richmond Independent Radio".

He fondly likens that moment as being akin to discovering the holy grail.

He immediately pulled out his phone, and called the number to see what he had to do to get a show, and remembers weeping openly when told he had NO restrictions on what he could play.

He tested that freedom on one of his first shows by playing The Replacements "Kiss Me On The Bus", and following it up with Little Tony Defranco and The Defrano Family's "Heartbeat, It's A Love Beat".

He claims he felt the knees of every radio programmer in the country buckle that morning.

He has now made it his mission to use his acutely fine tuned pop aesthetic to enlighten the masses and save the world from mediocrity, and is happiest doing his show POP Goes The World!

He equally enjoys talking about himself in the third person.
