Basically Bonny

Bonny O'Brien
9am until 2pm
Monday thru Friday

HOMETOWN:  Huntsville, Alabama

HIGH SCHOOL:  Butler - 1982

FIRST CONCERT?  I can't even remember who I was with at this concert... but it was Van Halen - when Sammy Hagar was the lead singer.

FIRST JOB?  WMSL-AM in Decatur, Alabama - this will tell you my age... I ran the Wolfman Jack Show on reel to reel.

FAVORITE FOOD?  I love seafood!

FAVORITE MOVIE?  Watching DVDs is somewhat of a pastime for me - but if I have to choose, it's "Under the Tuscan Sun".

WHAT PERSON YOU WERE MOST EXCITED TO MEET and/or INTERVIEW?  I have been lucky enough being in this business for as long as I have to interview and meet a lot of people.  I met Celine Dion when she released her first CD and she didn't speak English very well.  We met at a music convention in Los Angeles.  My favorite interview was with Carly Simon over the phone a couple of years ago.  I felt like I was talking to an old friend and we were just catching up on each others' lives.  She was very unpretentious and nice.  Nothing you would imagine a music legend like her would be like to a radio person.

WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING IF YOU WERE NOT IN RADIO?  I would be an archeologist.

WHO DO YOU MOST ADMIRE?  I admire a person who is resilient.

I WOULD NEVER GO ANYWHERE WITHOUT... my daughter, Dana.  She makes me feel like a kid again!

OTHER INTERESTING TIDBITS:  If I had the money and could do anything when I retire, I would travel the entire world first class, with my daughter Dana!
