I love X1039 because it’s the I.E.’s best alternative rock! I was born and raised in the Inland Empire and grew up listening to X1039. They never disappoint and I can always count on X1039 to play my favorites!

Why they love X1039?: I stumbled upon the station when I was skimming the radio in my car. Before, I never listened to radio much because none of the stations I knew where playing the music I liked at the time, which was alternative. Therefore, I give credit to X1039 for getting me back into listening to radio. Another thing I love about X1039 is the listeners. Whenever I work an event, all of the listeners are so cool and friendly. I was so taken back by how welcoming all of the listerns are. Not only that, but the other interns are fun to be around also. The people I am surrounding by when working at the station, or on an event, are so good that I could hate the music and still love working there.
Favorite X1039 Artist/Song?: I am a fan of plenty artists such as Cage the Elephant, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Gorillaz, just to name a few; but my favorite band overall is Alt-J, so I have to mention them. Ever since I discovered their album An Awesome Wave, I've been hooked. I enjoy both their sound and lyrical content, so I can't wait to see them live.
Favorite concert/event: The concerts are always a blast; Merry Meltdown 2014 is my favorite so far. I am excited to see all the amazing things X does next!

Why they love X1039 - I have always been obsessed with radio growing up and during my freshman year in high school i discovered X1039 and it became the only station i would listen to. So i guess in a way i was living my early teen years with X1039 playing in the background and i feel at that age you really discover what bands or artists you really like, the X was huge part of that for me. They play great music and they really shine a light on up-and-coming artists, which is great for people like me who are always looking for new music. I'm obviously really excited about working with my favorite radio station and it's a great experience learning about an industry you are interested in from the same company that originally sparked that enthusiasm.
Favorite artist or song- Kings of Leon is my favorite band, has been since i was in junior high and probably will be for the rest of my life. Their second album "Aha Shake Heartbreak" was the first album i ever fell in love with and simultaneously ignited my passion for music. When I'm listening to the X and a Kings of Leon song comes on i get very excited.
Favorite concert/event - Merry Meltdown was awesome! It was a fun show and i learned a lot which is always great. Music shows are always fun.
