Our Throwback Thursday topic this week is: When you were little, what was it that you most wanted to be when you grew up?

JStew: From about age 5 on, I totally 100% knew I wanted to make a living in music. Of course, as a drummer, my first aspirations were to be a rock star. And with a lot of hard work and determination, i actually kind of achieved that. Well, certainly not a rock star, but I sustained myself playing music and touring for several years. Only to eventually find myself on the other side of the music business, living the dream in radio. Either way, rock & roll is still my job. Can't beat that!!

Cori: There were 3 things that I can remember clearly wanting to be: and ice skater, a gymnast and a stand-up comedian. Unfortunately, I was not blessed with any kind of physical prowess nor even the most basic of hand-eye coordination, so the first two were out entirely. I did perform at one amateur night at a bar in Arizona once. And I didn't bomb, but that's about as close as I've gotten to stand up in my life. I have always liked music. And I did enjoy the idea of working in radio, so I am very grateful to have ended up where I am now. In retrospect, I don't have to wear sparkly leotards, freeze my butt off at an ice-rink or get heckled when my jokes aren't funny--and I'm okay with that!
