Anthony Bowens Interview

Anthony Bowens Interview

February 9, 2020

"For a stretch maybe about a year ago, I was wrestling too much with the purpose of getting signed. It made things not very fun for me.   I got into this cause I love wrestling and it's fun.  It's an outlet for me to express myself.  I had to get back to the grassroots of - I love pro wrestling and I'm doing this because I want to do it.  Not because I'm trying to strive to get this thing.  So as long as I'm wrestling and I'm living off of it, then I'm happy. And I'm working towards that right now and I'm very excited for 2020."  - Anthony Bowens

Jersey Rock’s Tom Hanley Interview

Jersey Rock’s Tom Hanley Interview

February 6, 2020
"Jersey Rock was literally becoming this element that had some serious street cred.   Sometimes people think commercial radio isn't gonna listen to us, they don't care.  But I think between (past hosts) Nikki and Maria, they made the point that we do care.   So when I took this on, my first objective was to not lose any ground.   I wanted to put my own spin on it without rattling the cages too much.  Then I wanted to take this brand to the next level."  - Tom Hanley  
 
Cannot say enough good things about my interview with the Wrat 95.9 FM's Jersey Rock, Mr. Tom Hanley. We had a great talk about the local music scene, the lineage of Jersey Rock, and Tom even breaks down the upcoming Jersey Rock Showcase series here in NJ. 
He even has a few life lessons to share.  If Tom knows your band, odds are he knows you personally, knows your material, and knows your story. Tune in for this stellar chat with the Master of the Local Band Realm himself featuring tunes from Roulette!

"We had a ton of positive feedback from everybody. From people we didn't know, to our peers to our co-workers.  We couldn't have been happier with the response that we got, especially from the LGBTQ outlets. Especially Out Sports who supports all the time. They write about us all the time and show us love.  We have a ton of support in the community and from the wrestling community in general.  It's just crazy how many people we actually touch by professing our love for each other and being ourselves."   - Kiera Hogan on her Coming Out Party
