Joe: What is your current position?
Beto: On-air talent, weeknights on 95.7 KISS FM, Mon-Fri 8pm-12am, Sun 12pm-6pm. This is truly a dream job, since the age of 6 I wanted to be a radio deejay when I grew up. Still haven't grown up much since I am a huge kid at heart, but the job is a dream come true. I love everything about my job, from pushing buttons, to the music, interaction with the listeners, to the unity with co-workers.
