Hi!! I’m Matt Sneed! I’m one of the newest additions to the Fresh 102.7 team! You’ve probably heard me on middays after Carson & Cane.
Well, here’s the part where I tell you about myself, and try to make it sound like a personal ad! lol
I grew up locally in Scotch Plains, NJ and have spent the better part of the past 15 years on the air at radio stations in Central Jersey and Philadelphia! Including an 11 year run at a Top 40 radio station in Central Jersey as Afternoon Drive host and Music Director! Most recently I was heard on WXTU in Philadelphia! In fact, over the past year I was working at Fresh and WXTU at the same time, and would be live and in person on both radio stations on the same day! On the air at Fresh and then make the 100 mile journey to Philly to be on the air there! It was crazy! These days you can hear me exclusively on Fresh weekdays from 10am – 3pm!
OK OK, enough about that stuff, what about me? Well, I love running! In 2013 I ran a half marathon every month for a year! I love the Yankees! Die hard fan since birth! I love beer and pizza! Sounds so interesting doesn’t it? lol What can I tell ya?? My ideal meal is pizza and a beer!
Most of all though, I love my family and my 7 year old daughter! I’ve been married for 11 years! It’s been an amazing experience becoming a father and she has taught me so much about life! I’m most proud of the 18 month stint I spent as a stay-at-home Dad when she was an infant! I was Mr. Mom!
Oh, one more thing I do have one of the best rock n roll stories you’ll ever hear!
In 2002 I was at a Bon Jovi concert here in New York City. My wife and I (then my girlfriend) were in the front row. I could hear Jon say to Richie Sambora “Man, I really gotta pee!” I yelled out to him “Go pee I’ll sing!” To my surprise Jon says to me “You wanna sing?” He invites me up on stage and I sang “Born To Be My Baby” while Jon Bon Jovi went to the bathroom! lol It was very surreal being on stage in front of a few hundred people with the rest of Bon Jovi as my backing band! Jon came back half way through the song and picked up a tambourine and let me finish the song! The story made the Daily News the next day! It was like rock n roll fantasy camp!
Check out the announcement video and full tour schedule.
Fresh 102.7 would like to thank everyone who came out to get ‘Up Close and Personal’ with singer Phillip Phillips on Thursday, August 4th on the StubHub Stage in the Adorama Live Theater.
The band has taken to social media to debunk the rumor.
If you’re a Star Wars or Pink Floyd fan, this mash-up is pretty neat. But if you love both, this will blow your mind:
Not exactly the kind of open communication that bodes well for a reunion.
His mix of classic hip hop includes Public Enemy, LL Cool J, N.W.A. and even Biz Markie.
Bowie as Gandalf: would it have worked?
The dates kick off this spring in Kansas.
The two strike a 1960s California pose.
“So happy to be finished with the best album of all time.”
