Kayla began her career in music at her college radio station at Seton Hall University. It was because of albums like Sevendust’s Home and Incubus’ S.C.I.E.N.C.E. that she fell in love with the hard rock. The passion for this music is a part of her that she loves to be able to share. Stay heavy!

Covino

Covino
Weekdays 6 pm - 12 am ET

El Covino thinks of himself as "El Hombre." Some even call him "The Baddest Latin in Manhattan" (according to Covino). He says it was hard to choose between taking Derek Jeter's job or rocking the nation's airwaves. We’re glad he chose the mic over the mitt. (But please note: Covino is delusional.)

José

Girls with piercings, tattoos and a love for punk and metal don’t go over well in an Arizona cow town, so Shannon Gunz moved to the big city. Check her out if you’re looking for a chick who's just as comfortable in high heels and a hot dress as she is getting dirty on a motocross bike.
