  • Madison | email
    Weekdays 6 pm - 12 am ET
    Saturdays 10 am - 4 pm ET
    Sundays 11 am - 4 pm ET
    Madison regrets to admit her first concert was Julian Lennon. As to being a DJ she says, "I was too ugly to be in the movies,” however Howard Stern himself has told her she’s cute. If she weren't a DJ, she'd be a babysitter... or a hooker. Her worst job? "I was a chimney sweep. God, that sucked."

  • Jeff Regan | email
    Weekdays 6 am - 12 pm ET
    DJ'ing is a lot better than Jeff's former job as a hole watcher. "No joke! I had to stand outside an empty oil tank all day and write down who walked in and out of the hole." Occasionally, we call Jeff when we need someone to watch the paint dry, but mostly we take advantage of his skills on the mic.

  • Jake Fogelnest | email
    Weekdays 12 pm - 6 pm ET
    Saturdays 4 pm - 10 pm ET
    Sundays 5 pm - 12 am ET
    Jake is a regular panelist on all those damn "I Love The 80's" shows. He was kicked out of camp early in Wet Hot American Summer & he's written for "SNL," Spin, New York mag & "Billy On The Street" (Emmy nom). He created SQUiRT TV on MTV & is now living in LA where he drives with his learner's permit.

  • Redman
    Saturdays 12 am - 3 am ET
    Growing up as "show man,” Redman would record and replace the radio DJ with his own chatter, which led to a career in his hometown of Minneapolis, DC and Miami. "I'm more of a producer than a DJ," Redman says of his current gig. “But I love Alt Nation and everything that it is … so I enjoy playing it."
