Home 2007thru2010 CONGRATS: KROCK VETERAN NIK CARTER JOINS 101.9 RXP
Good for you, Nik! I have caught your show on K-rock whenever I didn’t like a particular song on RXP for the moment. You always had that “I’ll play what I want whenever they’ll allow me” attitude, which I admire. I am 45 and usually listen to RXP every morning with Matt Pinfield and Leslie Framm, then in the afternoon with Paul Cavaliconte (sp?). It’s a great radio station that plays every rock genre there is. I am finding out about so many bands I’ve never heard from from this station, since I’m a married working mother of 2 who’s hasn’t been to clubs in years. Thanks for signing on and not being forced to watch “Judge Judy” anymore.
Woo-hoo! Congrats, Nik!
Your devoted Boston fans still miss you. Thank God for webcasts!
Good luck in your new gig.
