What’s left that can’t be said about Mike Halloran. We’ve heard it all, especially since he’s told it to us with his incredible story telling. While Twitter is not a medium for Halloran’s stories, we focused him in 140 characters at a time to tell Alternative Contraband about what it’s like to be back at 91X. Dig in and share:
@altcontraband Mr. Halloran, welcome to Alternative Contraband‘s 10X140 heat lamp. 10 ?’s from us, 140 characters of honesty from u. Ready?
@radiohalloran ready? si! mon!
@altcontraband Q1. U recently went to Tijuana to broadcast from the @91x tower location on Mt.San Antonio. How important was that experience?
@altcontraband Q2. What are your impressions thus far of your new PD @Christy_Taylor?
@altcontraband Q3. U spent 6+ yrs there, what do you think is going to happen with @FM 949sd? How have they shifted since Garret Michaels @planetgman left?
@radiohalloran to be honest, I haven’t really listened. I feel for all of my buddies there, past and present. I know how hard it is deal…
@radiohalloran I have always wanted to be back here. the CC days were painful to experience from a listeners POV, but I loved competing.
@altcontraband Q5. What’s Alternative radio doing well these days?
@radiohalloran I think radio in general needs to become ‘local’ again. yes you can webcast, so can my dog, but your XMTR only goes so far.
@altcontraband Q6. What’s your favorite aspect of being on-air? What’s your biggest on-air crutch you’d like to eradicate?
@radiohalloran crutch? what is this? the 80s? they are now called catchphrases. I love using catchphrases on the air. soundbites baby!
@altcontraband Q7. What new tunes u digging these days?
@altcontraband Q8. What special haps are going on this Summer at 91x? Live broadcasts, big shows etc.?

@altcontraband Q9. What charities and other ventures are you involved with?
@altcontraband Q9.5 Can you tell us about those inventions?
@radiohalloran not until patents are done. they involve motorcycles after the sun goes down. safety first. thanks for reading these answers
@altcontraband Q10. U’ve been involved in Alt.+/- 25 years. Give us an all time Halloran station/band story. Use several tweets if u must.
@radiohalloran hmmm. you will have to wait for the book/movie. it involves T.J, Australians, pesos, donkeys, the bambi club and the border!
@radiohalloran ps. I started at 91X almost 26 years ago. radio in general since 1977. lots of grey!
