Mojo

Mojo is a native of Olean, New York. Mojo was a heavyset kid who became fascinated with television and radio. When he wasn't feeding his fat face in front of the TV, He could be found in his room pretending to be Spiderman, albeit a chubby webslinger. Often he would record little radio shows into a tape recorder....lots of mindless ramblings...much like the show today.

He was big fan of St. Bonaventure basketball...rooted for Erie native Essie Hollis (who was a key member of the Bonnies 1977 NIT Championship) it was at a young age that he became an NFL fan of the Buffalo Bills...an illness that still plagues him to this day.

Mojo attended college at Edinboro University as a speech communications major. While at Edinboro he developed a reputation as a heavy partier and ...um, mmm, um.... after leaving the land of the fighting Scots he migrated to Erie, Pennsylvania where he found employment at the old K-104 doing weekend overnights.

"As the years flew by, I eventually found a home at Rocket 101 in 1991. I have had a blast working mornings at Rocket. I love the daily kibitzing with Allan, the comedians from Junior's, and of course all of the different characters I have met from all walks of life. In 1995, I married my beautiful, and loving wife Lisa. She is the glue that holds this otherwise unhinged guy together.

In 2004 the apple of my eye, and the angel of my life came into my world.. my son Jack. This happy little family, along with my Rocket 101 family are certainly more than one guy deserves. I must be Irish, because I certainly have the luck. In closing, I have no hobbies, nor a recreational outlet, and I count my TV remote as my close personal friend."

Best advice Mojo was ever given: "Shut the _ _ ck up and play some Skynyrd"

AC

Allan Carpenter (known to listeners, friends and liquor store clerks as A.C.) may be a big man now, but he began his life as a small child, dreaming of working in broadcasting. He spent many late evenings in his bedroom, using a hairbrush as a makeshift microphone as he spun KISS discs on his "Close-n-Play". Several decades later, A.C. no longer owns (or, sadly, needs) a hairbrush, but he does get to use a real microphone, and even occasionally has the pleasure of playing "Calling Dr. Love".

Allan is a Waterford native who graduated from Fort LeBoeuf and Mercyhurst College. He's been on the air in Erie for twenty-plus years, in a variety of formats. Heck, he was even on C-Span! But he prefers playing rock, because when you go on the air at 5:30 am, it's much easier to stay awake playing Judas Priest than it is playing Taylor Swift.

A.C.'s obsessions include science fiction, anime, guitars, and online forums. Despite this, he actually found a woman to marry him. Remarkable, isn't it?
