Candidradio Live with Zman and Littleflurry
Hello, I'm Zman.My wife,Littleflurry and I host Candidradio Live from our lair in North Central Illinois, the state that I am convinced has more former Governors and other politicians in prison than any other state in the U S. Candidradio Live began as a podcast way back in 2005 and then moved to internet radio in 2013. When I was a kid way back in the days when MTV actually played music, I knew from a very early age I wanted to be in radio. I listened to some of Chicago radio’s great announcers like Steve Dahl & Gary Meier, LaryLujack, Johnathan Brandmier, and Kevin Mathews. I received my degree in Mass Communications at Western Illinois University in Macomb, Illinois where I also volunteered for the two campus radio stations, WIUS FM 88.3 which was my first real exposure to Alternative music and I've been a fan ever since. Also at the now defunkc dorm cable top forty station WHEN which was named after the dorm the station was located in, Henninger Hall. I worked in commercial radio from 1994 - 2009 and then got in to internet radio in 2012 when Toonhead who sadly passed away back in October, told me about a station he was starting and I've been involved in internet radio ever since. I would describe Candidradio Live as a show where pretty much anything goes as far as talk and music. We play music from pretty much any format and we do a lot of theme shows throughout the year and shows where we just play pretty much anything. We play songs you know and love and we try and find those rare tracks that over the air radio does not play or has forgotten about. We try to keep the topics on the show a little light but will get serious if we need too. We do have some adult content so listener descretion is advised. We will talk about pretty much anything and everything. When not doing radio shows, I enjoy spending time with my wife, our dog, and spoiling our eight nieces and nephews who range in age from 22 to 1. I also enjoy reading, listening to music especially 80's hair bands and rooting for the Chicago Cubs, I'll watch pretty much any baseball game but the Cubs take priority.
One of the things both Littleflurry and I like most about internet radio is the freedom we have to play what we want and to talk about whatever we want, a freedom you don't get in over the air radio. To me, the programming of many internet stations is far better than what you hear on most over the air stations.
