It’s your Buddy Russ! They told me I needed to write a bio about myself. Who in the world actually reads these anyway? Well, I guess you are, so here we go! Proudly born and raised in SWLA, I graduated from Barbe Highschool in 2001. Go Bucs! I did try college a few times - 5 times to be exact; I just tell everyone I have a well-rounded education. I became a DJ in middle school in order to get into the dances for free. Fast forward a few years, and you’ll realize my employment record has a much A.D.D. as my actual personality! I’ve worked at Putt Putt, as a mechanic, a tow truck driver assistant, a bartender, a waiter, an Entertainment Manager, and even a tire salesman! Guess all that was missing was a radio DJ. I am the VP of the Seven Slot Society of SWLA, and love helping others in need around the community. I love Southwest Louisiana and Southeast Texas, and the people that live here. Come join me on the Drive at 5 from 3p-7p, and experience just how random things can get. We will talk music, food, have a few laughs, and probably talk about more food!
