Hey! I'm Tig. I come from the Poughkeepsie area, right here in the Hudson Valley. I'm a rocker whose favorite bands include Guns n Roses, Van Halen, Buckcherry, AC/DC, Alice in Chains, Metallica, and I love 80's hair metal. In my free time, I like to go to the rock shows and knock a few cold beers back at the local bars. I started at the Home of Rock n Roll 101.5 WPDH nearly 25 years ago.
