Hi everyone!

Hi! I'm Sam,

I found 91.8 The Fan by sheer coincidence thanks to Twitter's suggested follow list!! Just love this concept of bringing anime, music, cons and more together into a one stop site. I want to show my support and meet other people who enjoy some of these interests!

I've love anime and collecting figures of my favorite characters. I first got into anime thanks to an old Chicago TV station in the 80's that had a Japanese show/anime afternoon block that played series like Spectreman, Ultraman, Speed Racer, Battle of the Planets, Starblazers and Tranzor Z. Eh yeah, I'm THAT old LMAO XD

Some of my favorite anime include (in no particular order): Angel Beats!, Rosario+Vampire, Eureka 7, Clannad, School Rumble!, FLCL, Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Code Geass, Spice and Wolf and Ghost in the Shell.

I love all kinds of music thanks to being a DJ in college for awhile. I started getting into Jpop, Jrock and anime soundtracks after I started watching Cowboy Bebop. Yoko Kanno blew my mind with her music and it just sort of expanded out from there. Now, I'm just as much of an anime music junkie as I am for anime itself!

I think I might apply for the weeknight "night owl" DJ position spot, if it's still available! Would be fun to get back into the groove again! =)

For fun I play the drums, produce AMV and music videos. Recently I started playing the bass thanks to some inspirational stories from Angel Beats! and Clannad/Clannad After Story.

My ultimate goal is to open my own studio for jam sessions. More importantly, to provide a place for people to play, practice, or maybe even be inspired to play music without worrying about if they can afford the price of studio time or even instruments. Lofty goal, but I hope I can achieve it! :D

Gah, sorry for the e-book! LOL XD
