A crusty veteran of rock radio, Mark did radio locally at various stations in the area including his hometown station in Roanoke, VA.
After taking a hiatus, Mark decided he wanted to come back and work at a station where the artists were still alive, touring and still making music, so he found what he calls “the best station in Charlottesville, 106.1 the Corner.”
“He’s been dubbed The Great One, The People’s Champion and The Most Electrifying Man in All of Entertainment, but mere words fail to capture the essence of the most charismatic DJ of all time.
The first third-generation disc jockey in WCNR history, the man born John David Spangler was destined for immortality since birth, but his rise to the status of a pop culture icon was harder to predict. See for yourself every weekday night 7pm-Midnight.”
Melissa’s story begins in the suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. As she was being pressured to decide what she wanted to do with the rest of her life while still in high school, she decided over Algebra homework that the person working the night shift on her local alternative radio station was having WAY more fun than she was.
She was right, radio is more fun than factoring any day. College followed along with a stint at the college radio station (she is very glad she did not save the tapes from those shows). Since then she has worked numerous odd jobs at radio stations all over the Midwest.
This is her first time living below the Mason-Dixon line, and she’s loving Charlottesville. Melissa can often be found at one of the many great concerts that come to town, walking around her neighborhood, or improving her skills in the kitchen. You can hear her every Saturday and Sunday afternoon on 106.1 The Corner.
