About John: I was born in Staten Island, New York and moved to Jamesburg, New Jersey at the age of 14. I like to think I'm a "Jersey Boy" even though I wasn't  born here. 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", was a partner in a successful disc jockey company. In case you haven't figured it out yet, I love music. I worked for this very large international company based in New Brunswick. 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 called the Central Jersey Garage Sale on our sister station. I'm also an avid car enthusiast. I attend car shows regularly with my car club, The Garden State Crew-zers. You can see me cruising Central Jersey in my custom PT Cruiser while listening to the Magic 98.3! I LOVE what I do! I get to play a great variety of music, meet and talk to wonderful people (like you), and give away some great prizes!
