About DJ Ziggy:
DJ Ziggy was born in Minneapolis and raised in Alaska. His late mother, a gypsy of sorts, played the flute and was once an art professor at Auburn University. His father was the predecessor to Kasey Kasim as America’s Top Forty radio show, a part of K-tel records.
With a long history in music, from splicing reel to reel tapes in his youth for his Dad, to DJing his first gig with hit single cassette tapes in the late 80s, to arranging stadium light systems for Journey and Mel McDaniels among others, it is no wonder why he enjoys big light shows for events today.
The real exposure to on-air work was travel with Art Linkletter and time with Robert Weston Smith, also known as Wolfman Jack. The guidance on how to interact with people on-air and off the air has helped Ziggy develop people skills and an entertainment edge. Wolfman Jack had the Wolf-line in the studio whereas Ziggy, in his time at various radio stations, had the Zig-line and always gets his listeners into the Zone, the Zig-Zone.
