What was your last “real” job?

I’ve never had a “real” job. I started in radio when I was 16, so the only job I’ve ever
had is “unreal” … sitting in a studio playing tunes for my friends. That’s not really a job, is it?

How do you spend your time outside the station?

Hiking, kayaking, swimming, anything I can do in the woods.

What was your first concert?

Country Joe and the Fish in Minneapolis in 1970. Gimme an F!

What’s the first album you ever bought?

The first album that was given to me as a gift was “Meet the Beatles”, but the first album I bought with my own money was Led Zeppelin’s first album.

What are some of your favorite movies?

The Princess Bride is my all-time favorite. I also love Spinal Tap, and all the rest of the Christopher Guest movies … plus, Pan’s Labyrinth, Monsters Inc., The Deer Hunter, and anything by Wes Anderson.

What are some of your favorite TV shows, past or present?

Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, John Oliver, Mad Men, Seinfeld, The Larry Sanders Show, Schitt’s Creek, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and of course, Law and Order SVU. I’ve seen every episode about 20 times!

If you had a goofy DJ name what would it be?

I had a goofy DJ name, and it was “Killer”, Killer Kirshbaum. It started as a joke and stuck. People in Minneapolis still remember me by that name.

What’s your favorite time-wasting website?

I am addicted to the Carolyn Hax column in the Washington Post. I’ve always been a sucker for advice columns!
