Jason - X INTERN
Hometown: Chino California
School Attend: Don Lugo High School
Why are you interning at the X?
The reason I intern for the X is, I like the production aspect of the radio and how the shows and commercials are put together starting from paper to ending up on being on the air.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
It's hard for me to really answer this question, because the sky's the limited out there with what someone wants to be when they grow up. Mostly just fallow your heart and enjoy something that you like doing and see where it leads you.
Richard - X Team Station Photog Major Events
Richard Rasner is a professional photographer based out of Riverside, CA, with two other photo studios in Anchorage Alaska and Beijing China (not to mention three additional studios on the way in Las Vegas, Dallas, and Tel Aviv). Besides taking all the portrait photographs of the X 103.9 DJs you see here on the website, Richard's work also shows in art galleries and museums worldwide. He tours internationally on book signing tours and gallery showings, and his team of Nakayama Studios photographers can be seen at all sorts of events around the Inland Empire, as well as national and international events and concerts.
Richard cut his teeth on live music photography as the lead staff photographer for Mojo Republik Magazine (a division of Universal Records) shooting such bands as Nine Inch Nails, Panic! At the Disco, REM, Billy Idol, Stone Temple Pilots and hundreds more. After shooting Duran Duran's “Red Carpet” tour in Las Vegas, the veteran band requested use of the images for their website stating it was some of the best shots they had ever seen in their long career. Richard loves to shoot for KCXX as much as he is available (read: in the country) and will continue to do so as long as they let him. Live music photography is a passion he likes to pursue alongside his more famous nude portrait work for a unique change of pace. See more work from Richard and his team at www.NakayamaStudios.com
Ray - X INTERN
Chaffey College-Major: Commercial Music
I work at the X because I worked hard to get it. I submitted a resume at the push of a friend telling me to. I never imagined I would have got the quick response I did. I've taken this chance and ran with it. I go to school to learn the business side of music this is the best way to study what I see and continue my education towards my degree. I'm just glad to have this opportunity and very humbled to work here with some of the coolest people I have ever met.
