Sluggo | email
Weekdays 9 am - 3 pm ET
Sluggo, aka The SlugMonstrosity and/or Baron Von Slug, spent the early 80's sitting in front of MTV (just like you), started playing music on the radio in 1984, lost his concert virginity to Adam AND the Ants, did the blue hair, Rocky Horror and tacky buttons thing and finally ended up at KROQ in Los Angeles. Yet he still can't get enough! So, we've invited him to play Classic Alternative at you every day of the week.
