Do you have a show at KVRX? What's the name and what's it about?

Scorpion Hour. Scorpion Hour is a show that reflects what the zodiac sign, Scorpio, feels throughout the days. We feel strongly and deeply, so most songs will have a depth to it. Whether it is hidden behind its upbeat melodies or amazing vocals, the songs I play on this show have some inner personal depth to them that essentially ties back to what I am feeling that week, as a Scorpio myself.

Why did you join KVRX?

I joined KVRX because I had previously been part of a music organization that was not satisfying my wants out of an organization that had to do with something I truly love. I found out about KVRX through ex-DJ Baby Loaf, and with their help, I was able to become a part of KVRX. I wanted to do something related to music, specifically in the video realm, and after digging through KVRX's YouTube I automatically felt inclined to join this organization. Freedom of expression not only through my music taste on my radio show but the freedom to make ads with different styles and no solid format every week was something that I was excited about. I am not a PR or Graphic Design major but KVRX has allowed me to dip my toes in both realms, in ways that more corporate radio stations won’t allow you to do. KVRX gives you the freedom to do anything with no guidelines (aside from FCC regulations of course!!). Creativity and passion are all that matters and that is what called my name to KVRX.

Favorite KVRX Memory?

My favorite KVRX memory has to be this year’s "New Year New Me" show at New Guild. That has to be the most fun I have ever had at a KVRX function. The turnout was crazy and the vibes were just the best. Everyone was ready to make this Spring semester one to remember for KVRX, and that is what this show did. Even the reunion with fellow DJs at Kerbey Lane the next day and being able to kiki about the night before was healing. Honorary mention to the Hispanic Heritage Month show, as it was awesome to be able to book this along with Christina and have a showcase of Hispanic/Latin talent amongst Austin.

Advice for New DJ's?

My advice for upcoming DJs would be to not be scared to put yourself out there and work for what you want to get out of KVRX. I think KVRX has for sure changed from when I joined but one thing that won’t ever change is that KVRX gives back to you the same amount of energy you put into it. Don’t be scared to ask for help and tips and tricks on how other DJs have gotten to where they are and have gotten the gigs they do. Everyone works hard and wants to be of help but we all also deserve to be respected and acknowledged for our hard work. Overall, please respect your fellow DJs and the station to maintain our tight-knit and caring community.
