Good morning, afternoon, and evening all over ya, friends! I’m super excited to hang out with you every day on Mix 107.5! Although I mostly get to spend afternoons with you, while you drive home from work or school, I also get to cheat a little bit. Amber and Kyle still let me hop on your radio in the morning for the Mixionary and some other stuff too. So, we all get to spend our day with YOU…and that is awesome!
I started my radio career in 199-…well the date isn’t that important. LOL. I was a teenager, living in Southern California (San Diego), and working as a Roller Rink DJ. What a life. My first radio boss saw me at the roller rink and asked me if I wanted to play on the radio. I WAS HOOKED! I moved here to the High Plains in 2002 and, that September, I started hangin’ out with you every morning as part of the Rooney and Moon Morning Showgram. In 2015, we shook things up a bit, and I took up residence as cohost of Mix Mornings with Duffy and Amber. I loved it, but man those early mornings! I know, I know…call the wah-mbulance. Recently, I jumped from Mix Mornings to Mix Afternoons and I love it, love it, love it!
I’m married with four kiddos. My oldest is 18 years older than my youngest. Don’t ask me how THAT happened! LOL. You’ll often hear me talking about life, kids, jobs, local stuff…you know…the same things you talk to your friends about all the time. Why? Because YOU are my friend. And I can’t say “thank you” enough. See ya on the radio…love yer show!
If you were a cartoon, which one would you be and why?
Scooby-Doo. Because every time he does something good, he gets a snack. Man I love snacks.
What is the weirdest thing you have ever eaten?
Back when I was partnered up with Steve Rooney, we took a little trip to Japan with some of the folks from the base. I was trying to be cool and agreed to eat eel. Don’t ever do that. Seriously.
What do you do to have fun?
We like to take the RV and find new places. We really like to go up to Ruidoso. Perhaps to play a little cards. Perhaps to visit the shops. Perhaps to get away from it all. Perhaps all of the above.
Have you been told you look like someone famous? If so, who?
Rosie O’donnell. Also, Dr. Teeth from the Muppet’s Mayhem Band.
If you were to name one piece of clothing that describes you, what would you say?
An athletic supporter. Because people often say, “Duffy Moon….the guy is nuts”.
If you were a superhero, what would your name and super power be?
The Buffet. My super power would be the ability to eat and eat and eat and NEVER gain weight. Not really sure how that would help people. I must be hungry.
What’s one thing you do that other people find odd or silly?
I am one heck of a roller skater. Seriously.
What’s the funniest pick up line you’ve ever heard?
If you were a fruit…you’d be a Fineapple.
If you were to write a book about yourself, what would be the title?
“Hey, remember that time…me neither”.
Tell us something you hate doing. Why?
Putting the sheets on the bed. It always seems like we forget they are in the clothes dryer until we are right there, ready to climb into bed. Then, the realization hits that you have to MAKE the bed, first. Oh, that sinking feeling.
What’s your biggest pet peeve?
When you go through the drive-thru for a drink, and they hand it to you with soda (or whatever beverage it is) running all down the cup. Grrrrrrrr.
What’s the one thing, you can’t live without?
My radio. (google LL Cool J, Can’t Live Without My Radio, 1985, and this will make more sense)
As a child, what did you wish to become when you grew up?
I wanted to deliver babies. Don’t laugh…it was a real dream of mine.
If you could have an unlimited supply of one thing, what would it be?
Energy. It’s amazing what you can get done when you have tons of energy.
Who is your all time favorite Mix artist?
I HATE THIS QUESTION. Bruno Mars. Nah, Justin Timberlake. Nah, Kelly Clarkson. Charlie Puth is pretty cool.
