2:00pm - 6:00pm
Hi I'm John Fanning. Music lover, Musician, and DJ on Album Rock Z93.
It all started July 28, 1981 the day I was born. A life of promise and success with the world at my fingertips, or at least a career working for IBM. On August 1, 1981, MTV was born and changed my life forever. I spent my childhood watching MTV, mimicking the Clash and Billy Idol. I found my true love and it was music. I spent my teen years and 20's in different local original bands, playing dingy basements and bars throughout Broome County and New York State. I also worked in restaurants, where I was often told, "you have a voice for radio."
In College, I studied music and majored in Audio Engineering. With a little help from a good friend, I landed my first and only radio gig working for Equinox Broadcasting. Working with music and being able to talk about my passion on a daily basis is amazing. I love the connections I make with our listeners, and hope they enjoy our time together as well. I have a lot to learn and a long way to go, but I have found my new calling and it is radio.
6:00pm - 10:00pm
My first love is radio. I'm an award-winning audio producer and I've spent most of my professional life in front of a microphone. Radio and music got me through my childhood and adolescence. This is my calling, so I wouldn't even try to imagine doing anything else. It's really great to connect with Album Rock Z93's listeners over the airwaves evenings 6-10 pm, helping them wind down from their busy days. I love the wide variety of the Album Rock cuts that we play and they always charge up my energy level and bring back some very good memories for me. It also makes me proud to be working for a locally-owned radio group that sponsors so many events in our community. What I especially like about being on-air on Z93 are opportunities to talk to listeners in person. Then I can picture them listening as I talk into the mic and never feel like I'm alone. Work never gets tedious when you're living your passion, and I feel lucky to be able to have so much fun doing my job.
10pm - 1am
Unlike most of my co-workers, I am very new to the radio business, although entertaining has always been in my blood. I grew up in the area, having graduated from Susquehanna Valley High School. After high school, I pursued a military career, which ended up lasting nearly 10 years and took me to places like Columbus, GA; Colorado Springs, CO; and South Korea. I am also a Veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom, which I am very proud of. I am a recent graduate of SUNY Broome Community College where I received degrees in both Communications and Web Design. In addition to my On-Air work, I am the Promotions Director for Equinox Broadcasting and am the co-owner of a local mobile DJ company. I am finally living my dream and could not be happier!
