The Shanty will be full of foot stompin', hootin' and hollerin' mostly "acoustified" Bluegrass, Folk, Country, Rock and Blues.

What bands could a listener expect to hear on the show?

Frosty cold Beer. 

When did you become a DJ?
My tenure with KBUT began way back in April of 2013.

Hometown?
The Boston area is where I spent my early days. Scituate, Massachusetts is probably the closest thing to my hometown though. 

Random thought?
Did you know that in the thirteenth century Europeans used to baptize children with beer?
