Hello, I'm Ben. I'm on right after Andy and Tasha on Hot 104.7 and I host the Throwback Hot Lunch, a hour of old school at noon. So, you wanna know a little about me? Too bad, I'm not talking. Like Jimmy James on 'Newsradio' I’m "a cipher wrapped in an enigma, smothered in secret sauce." I will say I like the TV show Newsradio, and Parks and Rec. Also, Star Trek. And of course Mystery Science Theater 3000. But I will say nothing else. Except that I come from down south, I mean Nebraska. And I like hot sauce. I will say no more!! Why are you grilling me?! What do you want to know? That I love music and my favorite artist is Weird Al? Is that what you want to hear? Fine, I’ll also say that I’m a huge comedy nerd, but that’s it, no more.
