Fook, the morning-show host at KFMA FM 92.1/101.3, moved to Tucson last year from Chicago, where he was a DJ for Q101. Ever since, he’s been waking up KFMA fans with sarcasm and hilarity.
What was the first concert you attended?
Public Enemy with Neil Young—at the time, what I thought was the most-bizarre pairing ever, until I discovered Cool Ranch Doritos and mushrooms.
What are you listening to these days?
I always listen to a lot of reggae and Fun Lovin’ Criminals, but recently Awolnation, Metric and 2 Chainz.
What was the first album you owned?
Billy Joel’s Glass Houses—I was about 7 and was simply attracted to white men with Afros, i.e., father figures.
What artist, genre or musical trend does everyone seem to love, but you just don’t get?
Dubstep. See Key and Peele’s latest skit to know my exact feelings on it.
What musical act, current or defunct, would you most like to see perform live?
Easy, and it fits both categories: Guns N’ Roses.
Musically speaking, what is your favorite guilty pleasure?
Eh, I have very little musical guilt. I have so much actual life guilt to contend with that I simply don’t have time. In that vein: Please let it go, Nickelback-haters. Seriously, they haven’t dressed up like clowns and eaten people. Save your rage for shit that really matters.
What song would you like to have played at your funeral?
Christopher Cross, “Sailing,” and then into “The Imperial March” for the dirt-throwing.
What band or artist changed your life, and how?
Strangely enough, Radiohead. I was on the air, protesting a bad call by the Chicago City Council to not let them play at a park in town, and I organized a moon-in. The moon-in was busted by squad cars, cops on horses and paddy wagons. Therefore, we did not moon. Biggest regret/failure/success of my career.
Figurative gun to your head, what is your favorite album of all time?
It’s an unfair question, but Paul’s Boutique.
What song should everybody listen to right now?
The new Soundgarden single “Been Away Too Long.” It’s furious.
