After a brief stint as a semi-regular guest on the Mancow radio program, Matt Kissane of Villa Park says he has decided to host his own brand of "wacky fun and hijinks" via the Internet as a podcast host.
"I started in radio way back in the 1980s, at Morris College in New Jersey, and always felt like I needed to get back to my radio roots," he explains. "I've dabbled here and there on WLUP, WJJG (now WCKG-AM) and a few Internet radio stations in between, and really miss it."
He will podcast from downtown Chicago at the Slam Internet Radio station on the city's North Side. Kissane's show will launch at 8 p.m. Thursday, March 21, with numerous, surprise guests. Live phone calls will be taken from listeners.
So far Kissane has interviewed rock stars Chip Z'nuff and Cliff Johnson, WGN's Mike Toomey, Jorianne the Coffee Psychic, Steven Adler from Guns N' Roses, and numerous comedians, actors and other talents.
Hear his show now at www.slaminternetradio.com under "Archives," also on iTunes under "Slamir."
