Marc "Mookie" Kaczor is a native of Los Angeles and Music Director of 88.5 FM. He likes the Lakers, Lo-Fi, interviewing artists and white tennis shoes. Marc also appreciates a nicely constructed tweet @MookieSpeaks. Initially gaining radio chops in San Diego (at more than a handful of stations) Mookie is thrilled to be back home at a trail-blazing, non-commercial radio station like this one. Always willing to take a chance on a record, always willing to serve the listener community and the community of artists.
