Next week, a Cleveland DJ will become an FM export.
Starting Monday, WMMS afternoon drive-time DJ Alan Cox will warm up for his shift by hosting the midday show on St. Louis’s 100.3 FM WSDD the Sound.
Weekdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Central Time), Cox will broadcast to St. Louie live from the same Cleveland studio that’s the source of his later show. The Sound is also owned by ‘MMS parent company Clear Channel. (The St. Louis station’s most popular artists include Phoenix, Train, Broken Bells and Muse.)
Cox says the show in the other city will be a separate production.
“It's more of an adult alternative station,” he says. “So it will be a more music-intensive show. Essentially, I'll be cracking wise in between the songs. [The job] had actually been offered to me before I came to Cleveland. They're just getting around to putting their talent lineup together now.“ —D.X. Ferris
