As early as he can remember, LA Lloyd has always had a love for music. He was raised on pop, rock and even outlaw country. Since he was not a musician, Lloyd found another means to surround himself with music on a daily basis: RADIO. Lloyd said, “I’ll never forget how amazed I was to hear myself in my headphones for the first time on the radio. And then people actually responded to things I had to say. I have been hooked on this medium ever since
Lou Brutus, the son of sideshow circus freaks, was brought into this world in Newark, New Jersey during a fierce thunderstorm while women wailed and jackals howled. Raised on a steady diet of cotton candy and things that dropped out of peoples pockets as they strode the circus midway, Lou received his first taste of hard rock at New York's Madison Square Garden where he bore witness to the original Black Sabbath. Following the show, Brutus gladly sold his soul to Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne in exchange for a career in radio and something to eat that wasn't covered in hay and elephant crap
Harlan grew up in Philadelphia hanging out with bands such as Bon Jovi, Britny Fox and Cinderella get their start. “It was a very exciting time, everything was changing and the only thing that mattered was having a good time”.
Harlan set his sights on the decadence and self-indulgence of the big city, NYC.

I got my start in radio way back in 1995 while working for an oldies radio station. After knocking out a couple stations along my rock journey, I ended up at Banana 101.5 in 2001. For those that know me, know that I’m an extremely laid back person that loves to party and go to concerts. I have a son that I love to death, he is my world 100%. I love to bowl, play video games, scuba dive and hang with my friends. Here's a few things you may or may not know about me, I used to sing (terribly) in a band and performed at the Capitol Theatre in Flint in the early 90s and I appeared on ABC's Wife Swap with my ex-wife and family in 2007, I have a Bengal cat named Abraham Lincoln and a Great Dane named Hippo
If this was Tinder, I’d just put up a picture and be done with it. But since this is a bio, here’s a little about me: I’m obsessed with rock music, pizza, my dog, my pj’s and a particular type of adult cinema. I love a good rock concert not just because of the kick ass music, the sense of community and the permanent damage to my hearing, but also because I get to wear clothes I would never wear in front of my dad. I’m a Cuban that moved to Miami when I was two and I definitely did not arrive via private jet…
I am a simple guy that enjoys watching sports and playing video games. I was not born in Texas but I got down here as fast as I could. I was born in Baltimore, Maryland and I support my hometown baseball team the Baltimore Orioles. I love the Dallas Cowboys and hopefully I don't die of a heart attack watching them one day.
I'm Johnny Thrash a.k.a The Thrashman. You can catch me on The Afternoon Buzz every weekday from 2-7. Aside from being a rabid fan of Rock and Metal, I love the Cowboys, Rangers, Mavs, and Stars...give me a cold beer, a good steak and a ball game and I'm set. Hit me up Buzzhead: JohnnyThrash@townsquaremedia.com
Full Metal Jackie began her radio career as a DJ at WSOU Pirate Radio, Seton Hall University’s legendary metal station. Instantly addicted to the excitement of life behind the mic, she graduated Pirate Radio (and Seton Hall), to become an on-air personality at WHTG (Neptune, NJ), and later at WDHA (Dover NJ).
