The Shark 102.3 FM Radio plays Classic Rock and Hits that you know and love !!
Whip's first taste of radio was when he was 9, calling into Denver morning shows and winning sports trivia contests. The DJs hated him, and he's pretty sure he's the reason stations started a “must be at least 12 to win” rule. He got his start at his college's station. After flunking, er, dropping out, he found a DJ job in Santa Fe and has been chasing it ever since.
Maria was born and raised on Long Island, New York, and then relocated to Dallas, where she graduated from the University of North Texas with a BA in Radio, TV, and Film. Her love of music, and lack of ability to sing, dance or play instruments led her to radio, where she’s been for almost 30 years!
Dan was born into a large family from New York so he learned early to either talk louder or get a microphone. He chose the latter and got his first job in radio when he was 14. Sports has always been a love of Dan’s whether he’s actively playing or watching from the sidelines.
Steve’s obsession with radio hit early. He once used the white plastic AM unit to try to bake cookies on its warm top. Steve kept exploring where he fit into the matrix, inserting songs and announcements on a cassette recorder. He joined his high school radio club, and in his twenties was broadcasting from a garage for a pirate radio station.
Timm’s love of radio goes back to when he first cracked the mic as a senior at his high school station. 35 years later he still can’t get enough. What’s with the extra 'M'? That goes back to 7th grade when his nickname was “Tim with 2 M’s,” and it’s stuck ever since.
