AJ & McCall
| Mon-Fri 6am-10am | Best of AJ & McCall | Sat-Sun 6am-10am |
“Born in the remote Alps of Kodar, AJ was raised by an articulate clan of yetis. At a young age AJ discovered a broken radio which he took apart and tinkered with until it began to work. This radio began AJ’s love of music. The yeti clan loved when AJ would DJ for them and helped shape the strong love of radio. At the age of 18 AJ set out into the world to make a name for himself. He finally hit the big time with landing the coveted job at VFX and has earned the love of millions through the airwaves.” – (Shari Wilson)
That’s definitely much more interesting than starting radio in high school in Lafayette, Indiana and doing it through college at Purdue University where I got my film degree.
McCall was born and bred in Utah, she grew up dreaming of being a on air because of her passion for music. She got the opportunity to when she followed her heart to Vernal. After a couple years, she moved back to Logan to chase her crazy radio dream and got added to the morning show on Utah’s VFX now known as AJ & McCall. She’s an adventure seeker, lover of all things furry, sassy as all get out, and literally just pumped about life. You can usually catch her rocking a snapback and a cat themed shirt spending her free time with her boyfriend Dustin and their 3 dogs, listening to all music, playing with makeup, working on remodeling home, and learning how to be a country girl. She believes you can achieve anything with hard work, determination, and a positive attitude. She lives life by this motto: “There always will be people that tell you ‘you can’t,’ what you’ve got to do in that moment is look them right in the eyes and say ‘watch me’.”
| Jen | Mon-Sat 10am-2pm |

When she’s not talking into a microphone, Jenn’s typically yelling at the TV during White Sox, Bears, and Gamecocks games, attempting to try all the restaurants with her husband, and keeping the tiny one better dressed than herself.
| Greg | Mon-Sat 2pm-6pm |
Broadcasting professionally since 1989 doing Morning Radio, TV and Emcee. Greg knew early on this would be his career path. “I was 7 years old when my parents bought me a microphone that would connect to our home stereo. I could hear my voice through the speakers and thought it was the coolest thing in the world. I’d interview family members at the holidays, going one by one at the dining room table. I enjoyed making them laugh and getting them excited about whatever I was talking to them about.” In Greg’s spare time, he enjoys riding his bike, working out and spending time with Justine & Avery. “Justine is the human, Avery is the cat.”

| Baka Boyz All-Star Hitmix | Fri 10pm-1am |
In 1993, popular music culture was forever changed when two brothers from Bakersfield, CA joined Power 106 in Los Angeles. The most authoritative show on the radio, The Baka Boyz radio program, “Friday Night Flavas”, contributed to the rise of hip hop in Los Angeles, bringing it from depths of late night programming to the light of mainstream radio and the coveted morning show slot.
One of the most naturally talented entertainers on the radio, the Baka Boyz, Eric and Nick V, owe their success to hard work and a true passion for music that started at a very early age. Their father would take them to professional gigs long before they could even drive and invested in their equipment, realizing early on that their talent was more than a hobby. Nick started DJing when he was only 12 years old and quickly garnered a reputation as a “Wonderkid DJ from Bakersfield”. Together, Eric and Nick V. garnered popularity for their fast talk, natural improv skills and, of course, their live mixes.
Under the reign of the Baka Boyz, Power 106 in Los Angeles became the mecca for upcoming artists and where international acts such as Cypress Hill, Ice Cube, B.E.P, Jay Z, Wu Tang, P. Diddy, Biggie Smalls and Eminem were given their first shot. With Eric on the turntables and Nick V manning the microphone, the Baka Boyz dominated the industry almost overnight. The Baka Boyz pushed the boundaries of standard radio programming with their raw talent and gave birth to “The World Famous Roll Call”, And the “Cali Caliente Power Mix Weekend”.
From producing and remixing classic tracks to hosting nationally syndicated hit programs, the Baka Boyz have established themselves as radio royalty. Their ground breaking contribution to popular music culture continues with their Pop Mixshow, “The All-star Hitmixx,” and the long running “hip Hop Mastermix” syndicated to an unprecedented 60 major markets. The Mastermix is the most influential and the most syndicated urban show in America, dominating an overwhelming 100 radio stations. Their audience now tops over 3 million listeners weekly!
The Baka Boyz influence expanded way past their expertise as DJs when they remixed Grammy nominated Foster the People’s “Pumped Up Kicks”. The Baka Boyz also remixed T-Pain and Ne-yo’s “Turn All the Lights On”, J. Cole’s “Work Out”, The Offspring’s “Pretty Fly for a White Guy”, and Beyonce’s “Love on Top”. And, their west coast classic “Pistol Grip Pump” was covered by Rage Against the Machine.
In addition to their dedication to music, the brothers are involved with the Susan G. Komen Foundation to raise awareness of the importance of regular check ups after both their mother and sister were stricken with cancer.
