The Who Behind the Mic: socalnewwaver
For Chapter 3 of The Who Behind the Mic, we have DJ socalnewwaver, who hosts the show Making New Wave New Again.
Other than the music played on his show, socalnewwaver has over 5,000 CD’s so he listens to just about everything such as blues, classic jazz, old-school, hardcore punk, classical, 80′s alternative, reggae, and more.
When he has some free time on his hands, he absolutely tunes into KUCI. He especially tries to catch Cure for the Blues and Where’s the Chase.
Outside of the studio, socalnewwaver climbs, not hikes and strolls through the park, but actual mountains. He has climbed the local mountains to the Sierra Nevada to the Cascades to Colorado. He has climbed six of California’s 14ers including Mt. Shasta. During the summer of 2016, he climbed Mt. Rainer and Mt. Adams in Washington. He has also climbed 14ers in Colorado and pioneered a snow climbing rout in the San Gorgonio Mountains.
Lastly, here’s a fun fact socalnewwaver wanted to share himself – “I’ve lived in Little Saigon for many years, so I’ve become addicted to Vietnamese iced coffee (black please, no milk & no sugar) and I’ve eaten at the same pho restaurant for 30 years.”
Catch socalnewwaver’s show on Mondays 6AM - 8AM!
Tune in next Tuesday to find out the next who behind the mic!
