Shawn Foxx's Bio
I'm an Iowa boy - born and bred. Grew up in the Quad City area. I moved here in July 2008 after accepting a position in May. I was driving back and forth from Cedar Rapids for a month or so, before the move.

I first got into radio in early '93 in the QC. Started on a Top 40 morning show, that included the beautiful and talented comedienne, Tammy Pescatelli. She was our news girl! Moved on to a classic rock station in the fall of that year, in the same area. From there, worked in the soft AC format and then on a station that was one of the first CLASSIC HITS stations to come about. I left radio in September of '96 after my first child was born - a daughter.

In the years following, I worked as a retail manager for places like Sam Goody (remember those?), Juffy Lube, NEXTEL and others, before taking a chance on getting into radio again. That was in 2008, right as the tornado came through Parkersburg and the other small communities, and just before the floods.

I have 4 children - a daughter and 3 boys.

I've been a music lover all my life. I'm a huge collector and own hundreds of vinyl, over 6000 CDs, tons of cassettes, a hundred or so 78rpm records, tins of 45rpm singles and still own and operate a stereo reel-to-reel tape machine with about 30 or so reels! It's rare that I NOT have music playing in my ear!

I love almost all kinds of music, though I don't enjoy most rap and country music. Country was good when it was Hank Sr., Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Patsy Cline. I very much love the unique styles of jazz, new and old. It's a refreshing breather from the pop and rock. Cleanses the palate nicely.

I love working at KOKZ! It's what I do! It's said, that if you love what you do for a living, you'll never work a day in your life. By that definition, I've been "out of work" for over half a decade and look forward to many more years to come!
