The newest weekend DJ on Deep Oldies is Chris Herrick. Chris Herrick got the radio DJ bug at an early age watching DJs from KRIZ & KRUX do their thing at 8th Grade school dances and wound up being the DJ at neighborhood parties. Jump forward about 22 years to 1992 when Chris met Liz Boyle who was an instructor at the Academy of Radio & TV where Chris decided to take a shot at doing a radio career. Chris had a few odd production and board op jobs but never really got behind the mic until May 2009 when he finally listened (“imagine that, me listening”) to Liz telling him he’d be great. Chris decided to host the Radio Freedom program on RFP. He finally got his small home studio and made his debut on Deep Oldies on July 3rd 2010. In his off-air time, Chris does public address work at Westview High School basketball games and audio/video taping. Chris is heard on Deep Oldies from 6-10pm Saturdays, hosing the Deep Oldies Drive Inn, and 3-8pm (MST) Sundays hosting Deep Oldies’ Solid Gold Sunday.

The inimitable Landshark will keep you on the edge of dry land Monday through Friday from 4-8 pm (Arizona Time) on Deep Oldies.  With his main squeeze Moonflower and pet dog Cujo, he will keep you in stitches with his wily, wet humor! Email him at landshark@deepoldies.com

Landshark was born on Dry Land to three rich hippie parents. From birth Landshark found himself drawn to the beach and water. In his early teens he began being thrown out of neighbors’ pools and bathtubs. Which eventually led to a court order requiring Landshark to live within 50 miles of the beach. Soon Landshark began cruising the beaches of southern Cali only to find he needed money. Being a stand-up Shark comedian led to radio.

Since the late 70′s until present Landshark has frequented the beaches of the upper eastern seaboard to south Florida and the Gulf. Of course, So Cal is still by far his favorite! Now Landshark runs an internet radio station which bears the name of his birthplace, Arizona’s Real Rock Radio. During his off time he patrols the beaches and coves looking for unsuspecting listeners who need a dose of Deep Oldies. Remember if you meet him on the street be prepared to give up an appendage or at least buy him a refreshing beverage! (btw his favorite beverage: Cherry Coke Zero). Hear Landshark Weekdays 4-8pm (MST).
