About John: I was born in Staten Island, New York and moved to Jamesburg, New Jersey at the age of 14. I may not have been born here, but I spent my summers here in New Jersey at my grandparents summer vacation home. Although it wasn't on the Jersey Shore, we did have a lake that I got to swim in everyday, so I kind of think that makes me a "Jersey Boy".  I have always loved music. As a kid I sang-along to the radio, performed in school choirs and glee clubs in New York. I was the lead singer of a "Hairband" in the 80's, and thanks to Facebook we have reconnected and started playing again.  In case you haven't figured it out yet, I love music. At the insistence of friends and family I decided to change my career and went to school for broadcasting. My first radio gig was at our sister station 1450 WCTC in 1999. I worked overnights, produced Rutgers Football and Basketball, and the Somerset Patriots. I was finally doing something I loved and before long I was producing the Morning Show and hosting a two-hour call in show on Saturday mornings on our sister station. In March of 2002 I was given the chance to move over to Magic and I jumped at it. I'm also an avid car enthusiast. I attend car shows regularly and I belong to The Garden State Crew-zers car club. You can see me cruising Central Jersey in my PT Cruiser while listening to the Magic 98.3! I think I'm pretty lucky, I get to play music with my band, go to car shows, and I have a job I love! No really, I LOVE what I do! I get to play a great variety of music, meet and talk with wonderful people (like you), and give away some great prizes!
