What are you listening to right now?

I’m listening to Greatest Hits by Remo Drive, DAMN. by Kendrick Lamar, and All-AmeriKKKan Bada$$ by Joey Bada$$.


Why did you decide to join WTBU?

I’ve always wanted to do radio since I was little and ever since I found radio I wanted to be a DJ. Now I have a show and it’s sweet.


What’s your favorite part about your own show?

Playing music that inspired emo or is connected to it in any way.


Why is your show called what it’s called?

There is this great album from a band called Texas is the Reason and it was released in 1997. They’re from New York, and they’re amazing, and that album is perfect.


What do you like to do outside of WTBU?

Play drums with my band, Devon Goods. We have an EP coming out and it will be on Spotify so check it out.
