Karl Southcott here!  I’m a giant movie fan, and love everything from the classic films to all the new exciting flicks.  When I’m not in a movie theater I like to hang with my family, especially around water, I think I’m part fish.  I have two small boys that keep me busy, let me tell you!  One of my very favorite things is sharing music on the radio with our listeners. I love everything from Frank Sinatra to Bruno Mars.  It’s such a kick!

Hi, I’m Liz Bell, a single mom to 2 gorgeous girls! I love throwing theme parties, read that as ‘Pinterest addict.’  I believe there is no better feeling than a sloppy ponytail and yoga pants. I enjoy traveling, things that sparkle and my partner, Chris Tyler. ***

Chris Tyler here!  I also have two kids, plus an awesome wife!  I run marathons, but in real life I love to spend time at our neighborhood pool.  And I’m a huge sports fan.  It’s hard for me to choose a favorite type of music!  I like many different types!  Except maybe Gangsta Rap.  I have to draw the line somewhere.
