Tony Martin


I’m from San Diego and have lived here most of my life. I spent one year in Palm Beach and Jupiter, Florida, where I discovered that humidity and sea lice were my arch nemeses. Ooh, add drawbridges to that list!

I always knew I wanted to be on the radio. My sister and I would stand behind the stereo in our living room -- this thing was literally a piece of furniture the size of a Buick (hey, it was the 80s) – we’d pretend to be DJs, talking into a hairbrush, while listening to The Mighty 690 or mom and dad’s rock and disco records. I started my career in radio here in San Diego at alternative station, 92.5 The Flash.

OMG, that was 23 years ago!
