Hello! I am McNeil, the youngest and most recent addition to KBER 101. Iâ€™m a local from Riverton, and I first ventured into music in elementary school when I learned how to play saxophone. I continued to play all the way into high school, where I learned how to play tuba, yeah I know Iâ€™m a bando. Marching band, jazz band, concert bandâ€¦ the works.
I went on to play tuba and saxophone in college (
I eventually got the interview rescheduled, and was hired on to work Monday evenings 5-7. I hosted an all music show called â€œThe SKA SHOW!â€ with Aaron S. I am a huge ska boy, I absolutely love it. I played Reel Big Fish, The Aquabats, Mustard Plug, The Planet Smashers, The Toasters, Less Than Jake, any thing I could get my hands on that had a ska sound to it. I spent three years with K-UTE as a jock and worked in production and programming. I fell in love with radio while I was there and wanted to go full steam towards a career in radio.
After a stint as an intern and a summer as a remote tech, I got my first full time gig as an on-air traffic reporter, which only lasted for six months (we all got laid off). A short time later I applied here at KBER, who hired me as a remote technician/pack mule. Youâ€™ll find me at remote broadcasts and station events wrestling the giant inflatable bear, and on Saturdays from 6p-7p co-hosting the Salt Lake Soundcheck.
Long live local music!!
