Ken Casey – you can find me on the air just about every weekend! I was born and raised in WNY, specifically Niagara Falls. I have lived here all my life, except for 2 years I spend in Kansas. BTW it really is flat there and people from there hate it when you make Dorothy and Toto jokes! I stated in radio way back in 1987, WOW that makes me feel old! I left the business in 2000 to run an Alpaca Farm in Topeka, Kansas but that was too much work so I moved back to Buffalo. Oh, and the pizza and wings were terrible out there! Unlike most people I did not grow up wanting to be a DJ, the thought never crossed my mind until I heard Kid Crockett on night on KISS, I eventually met him and we became friends. That’s when I decided I wanted to be on the air and somehow I was lucky enough and it happened. I owe my entire radio career to Kid and we remain good friends to this day. I came to Mix 96 in November 2014, thank Dave Universal for dusting off a retired DJ and letting me abuse the airwaves again!!!! Radio allowed me to not grow up; this job is so much fun. I get to play great music, act like a fool in the studio and meet great people. I love our sports teams, like many of us I am a tortured Bills and Sabres fan. I love to hate them and hate that I love them; I will be a Buffalo Sports fan until the day I die, championship or not! I have been lucky enough to meet a lot of artists/bands during my radio career but I think meeting Bob Segar was my favorite. He thanks me for coming to his concert--HA, you’re welcome sir! I have been a high school football referee for 20 years, I would officiate footballs games year round of that played. Outside of that I love sitting in my back yard by the pool drinking ice cold beer on a hot sunny Buffalo summer day – which happens about 4 days a year!
THE BEST MIX OF THE 80s, 90s, AND TODAY
