Matt’s Radio career started in his parent’s basement. At the age of 11, he would sit with his turntable, microphone and tape recorder and spin his record collection (Led Zeppelin, Def Leppard, Beatles, AC/DC and other records that the nuns in his school would frown upon) and record his first “radio shows.”
Matt spent his teens playing in garage bands and immersing himself in the local band scene in Baltimore, which he would later promote on his radio show here in town.
In his late teens and early twenties, much of his free time was spent at the legendary Hammerjacks where he would watch bands like Kix, Wrathchild America, Guns N Roses, Ramones and so many other great bands from the era. (Iron Maiden was the first big concert that he attended at Baltimore Civic Center!)
Matt’s professional radio career started in Baltimore and took him to New York, Philadelphia and Sirius XM Satellite Radio. Most recently Matt spent 13 years as the host of the Maryland Lottery drawings on WBAL-TV 11 and spent many years on-air at WIYY where he hosted “Noise In The Basement” which featured unsigned bands from our music scene here in town.
Matt has also spent many years as a certified hypnotist performing his comedy hypnosis show at venues and events all over the country! In addition, he’s a lover of hot sauce! If you happen to see him with a tasty bottle of pepper sauce, sweating, nose running and mouth on fire, just know that he is in his happy place!
