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."

An emo kid on the inside, cat mom on the oustide - Tatiana can usually be found looking for the next concert to go to or planning her next big trip. Based out of Los Angeles, she loves discovering new music she can obsess over and will take any opportunity to talk all things animals or aliens. Alt and pop punk are the soundtrack to her daily life so don' try talking to her when she has headphones on.

Jeff Regan

Jeff Regan

DJing is a lot better than Jeff Regan’s former job as a hole watcher. “No joke!” he says. “I had to stand outside an empty oil tank all day and write down who walked in and out of the hole.” At Alt Nation, he’s occasionally called upon when there’s a need for someone to watch the paint dry, but mostly it’s his skills on the mic that are taken advantage of.
