DEPARTURE: Southern California's Biggest Dance Radio Program
Introduction
I'm the EDM Director at KX 93.5 FM, a non-profit FM radio station based out of sunny Laguna Beach, California.  The station plays a fusion of indie & alternative rock from the 1970s to today.  

On Saturday nights, however, I come to the station to make Orange County dance on my show DEPARTURE, which airs from PM to Midnight every Saturday, and at 4 hours in length, it is the longest dance music show on the radio in all of Southern California.  Pretty cool, right?  

I play a mix of mainstream dance/EDM, indie dance/nu disco, all sorts of remixes, house music, and more.  I include mainstream staples such as Kaskade, Avicii, NERVO & Morgan Page, but I what I find most exciting is to champion the up-and-coming talent in electronic & dance music.  In fact, there have been numerous acts I played on my show who, months later, were featured by Tiesto in his Club Life podcast.

If you're not close enough to the signal in OC, the show can be streamed via kx935.com, our KX 93.5 Android app, or by looking for the station in the Tune-In app.  Alternately you can catch recorded archives (read: podcasts) through many of the links on my profile.

Check out my in-depth interview with Julian Casablancas of The Strokes and Julian Casablancas + The Voidz fame.  We discuss his work with Daft Punk, early albums by The Strokes, as what he really thinks of the current state of our country & news media.

Starting off with a KX 93.5 exclusive--the new single from The Knocks & Sneaky Sound System--my show over the weekend was probably my best yet. This is a great place to start if you've wanted to check out my show. 

This 60-minute preview includes remixes of artists including Michael Jackson, Bastille, Tove Lo & The Neighbourhood, as well as forthcoming material from Gentlemen Hall, Duke Dumont, Rogue Vogue and Years & Years.

My small backlog of podcasts begins posting this week!
