What is the name of your show? DJ JAY BIG BIG BIG RADIO 

Is there a story behind your on air name? An older guy from the neighborhood gave me the name "JAY BIG JAY" when I was a kid. When I went to college, I dropped the last "JAY" and just kept "JAY BIG" because I started rapping. When I stopped rapping and became a DJ, I wanted to put my own drops in songs I played. I went to the studio to record and the engineer didn't know how to do echoes. I said it myself "DJ JAY BIG BIG BIG" and it became a big catchphrase for the urban community throughout Flint, Saginaw, Pontiac, Lansing, and Detroit.

What's your show about and when does it air? Mixing and playing the new and old Hip Hop & R&B 

How long has your show been on the air? Since February 2014

What do you like to do in your spare time? Play basketball and be in the music studio

Tell us about a funny incident that happened during your show. I made a mistake and burped loud while talking on the air

What is one of your most memorable concert experiences? When I rocked the Pontiac Silverdome and over 2000 people came.

Tell us something about yourself that people might find surprising. That I'm super cool, easy to talk to, and love to make people happy
In the movie "WKUF: The Untold Story", who would you cast as yourself? Hugh Hefner!

Today is Duran Duran Appreciation Day

While looking up happenings for August 10th in a book I have called Chase's Calendar of Events, I learned that today is Duran Duran Appreciation Day. According to the book, "This is the day for everyone to enjoy the underrated beauty of '80s rock icons, Duran Duran." 

One source claims that National Duran Duran Appreciation Day is celebrated on August 10th because, on that date in 1985, lead singer Simon Le Bon survived a near fatal accident when his yacht capsized during a 608 mile race. The band acknowledges National Duran Duran Appreciation Day on their official website and there's also a Facebook page as well. So if you want to take part in the celebration, you can start by checking out D2's video to their debut single (1981's "Planet Earth").
