What’s the focus of your show?
I’m the Loud Rock Director, so I try and play new heavy metal, hardcore and noise that comes in to KPSU. I also mix in ’70s prog and experimental, so I can keep my listeners entertained, but not overwhelmed, by my ass-shattering tunes.
Your top 5 records or songs:
Blackwater Park by Opeth
Chaosphere by Meshuggah
Terrifyer by Pig Destroyer
Angel Dust by Faith No More
Moonmadness by Camel
What else are you involved in musically?
I’m a writer for Decoymusic.com (I’ve interviewed Brann Dailor and Danny Carey, which was pretty flooring). I’ve also been involved with the late, great band Tantalus Rexx, which fell apart before recording, but was the lyrical subject matter of many Corvallis HxC bands.

First vinyl/cassette/CD you bought and why.
Some anonymous classical disc with animals and nature in the background. I had a whole series from Target. I think it was because, at the time, I hadn’t started drinking.
