My name’s Chris Rodriguez but my friends call me Coach. I was born and raised right here in New York’s backyard. I started listening to radio in the early 90’s right around when grunge broke through. I was one of the millions of people my age who’s lives were altered by Nirvana’s “Nevermind” album. Right around the 6th grade I finally saved up enough money to get my own stereo. I marched down to the old Caldor in Port Chester with my grandmother, because I needed her senior discount, and she christened my CD collection with Nirvana’s “Unplugged In New York” album. After that my CD collection grew rapidly and I would sit in my room and put together makeshift radio shows with the music I liked. I would try and imitate the DJ’s I heard back then on New York radio (one of them was Jimmy Fink but shhh don’t make him feel old).
I’ve been listening to this frequency since it was X107 when I used to tape an hour of programming at night and listen to it on the school bus the next day. I ran my college radio station at WCC where, because of my coaching youth basketball, I earned the moniker “Coach”. It was here where I earned a reputation for being brutally honest on the air and speaking my mind. I’ve just been itching to be on the radio ever since. It’s truly an honor to be on these airwaves. What will I say and play next? Tune in and find out.
