Ned

Hey, I’m Ned. Born and raised in Grand Rapids, MI and moved to Iowa to rock it out at Rock 108. Started my radio career in Grand Rapids and attended Eastern Michigan University for broadcasting, so I guess that worked out for me.

When I’m not busy playing tunes on your radio or streaming thingy, I’m playing video games, going for a run, or watching the same TV shows that I have seen 400 times…Futurama anybody? If one would describe me, it would be…

“The guy that hangs out with you on the couch, drinking Surge while playing Super Mario Bros. while laughing at B Movies.”

Hang out with me weekdays from 2p-7p on Rock 108 and we’ll chat about pretty much anything. However, don’t be surprised if I forget to talk on air because I am taking down Mother Brain in Super Metroid.

Love Them of Hate Them, KISS Inspired a Generation of Rock Bands

It’s funny how many bands were inspired by the legendary KISS. The reason I bring this up is because a lot of the bands that I have interviewed have credited KISS as the REASON they even picked up a guitar, and naturally, those are some of my favorite bands out there! Motley Crue Five Finger…read more »
