I guess by now, my co-jocks have said everything there is to be said about the anniversary of Monster Radio RX 93.1. And as you can see with the photo above, I’ve been with RX for a LOOOOOOONG time now. And hopefully even LONGER. So let me just let some of the old photos I dug tell some of the storytelling.
What’s up with all the ties? We look like a bad 80’s The Knack cover band. Notice how I USED TO drink quite a bit. I noticed a lot of the party photos had me holding a drink or two…
And the fashion sense! I can’t say much about how homely my clothes were, but good lord, I miss how the clothes used to fit me so well! I hardly needed to suck my stomach in during picture taking!
Rude Dude Jude Rocha is that you? Cool beans! Notice the oh-so-hip folded jeans and the come-hither half-open mouth pose?
Boyzone in the house! That’s Fran with me in the photo! We interviewed the boys together, including the vampiric Ronan Keating. Awww, the late Stephan Gately wasn’t looking during the pic.
It’s the Planet X boyz!!! Yup, Jude and I were the original sparring partners. They called us Heckle and Jeckle, after the two mischievous cartoon magpies, because we had the habit of hosting events “mildly inebriated”.
Did I mention I used to drink “a bit”? Yes, I was a party animal back in the day. And yes, even then, my co-workers like to make fun of me. Poor Chico, such supportive co-workers.
Where’s the love, Jude?!? There I was, my consciousness snatched by copious libation, and you flip me the bird. Nice.
And let’s not forget the 2 DJ’s who, during one RX Halloween party, thought it would be a GREAT idea to come as bride and groom. TOINK.
