Visa On The Radio
So what do you want to know? How this fairy tale started? I can lie to you and tell you that it all came easy and with the snap of my fingers but like I said thats a lie! Lets get straight to it! My name is Visa, your Night Show host from 6p-10p. Born and raised in the Bay Area, went to San Jose State and started my radio career in San Francisco at KYLD- WiLD 94.9 where I worked for free, interned, stickered stuff, did everything including cleaning the restrooms. From there I got the chance to be on air weekends at WiLD which was a dream come true since I grew up listening to the station. Few years later I got a call from Sam Diggedy asking if I wanted to come down to KDON and be the Night Show host and for the next 5 years held it down from 6p-10p! During this time I got the chance to be on the air in LA at KPWR, Las Vegas at KLUC, WiLD 106 in SLO and KMVQ in SF. Then October of 2011 I left KDON to further pursue my dreams of becoming an astronaut and explore space. I then went to Space Camp and on the day of my shuttle launch I asked the captain 2 vital things of importance that could be the deciding factor of my space career...1.Are there night clubs that play house music in space? and 2. Can I still wear hair gel under my space helmet? Few days later I left space camp angry that my two questions were followed with a NO. Soon after I remembered the people of the 831 and how I missed them and how I left the 6p-10p shift a ghost town. And a light bulp turned on, I must return to my people. I called upon my white horse jumped on it and ripped off my shirt and galloped in to the 831 like a valiant hero returning to his people. And now I am back on your radio 6p-10p every night. I know just a ho-hum story right?!
Alicia Keys continues to be a live performer at biggest events. In the last two months alone, she’s played at the MSG concert benefit for Sandy victims (one of just two modern performers to do so), she’s sang at the President’s second Inaugural Ball (“O…bama’s on FIIIYAHHHH!!!!“), she performed that National Anthem at the Superdome before Super Bowl XLVII, and she’ll be showing up at the 2013 Grammys soon enough.
Now, she'll be the featured halftime artist at the NBA All-Star Game in Houston as well. NBA all-star halftime isn’t quite on the level of big-dealness as the Super Bowl, but for those pop-leaning hoop-heads of us out there, it’s a slot of decent importance, and occasionally makes for some memorable performances, as with Rihanna’s set two years ago featuring both Kanye West and Drake.
Alicia won't be the only performing at the event. Ellie Goulding will show up pre-game to sing “Lights,” which is a pretty great choice for NBA pre-game music, and Fall Out Boy will also be showing up at some point for their first TV performance in ages, presumably to play their new song “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light ‘Em Up).”
