"I fell in love with the music scene back when I lived in Wisconsin. Before freezing to death up there, I decided to move to Florida where I could enjoy not only new music but concerts in a warmer climate. I’m a huge supporter for all local bands and have been around the Orlando scene for some time now. I’m looking forward to meeting new bands and putting more of a spotlight on others who have been around for a while. I’m currently working in productions in the marketing department. I handle all the promo’s and occasionally help with commercials and photography on the side. I’ve been handling all the marketing for our German restaurant that my mom and I opened back in 2016. I was also put on the front cover of the Dining Guide for our restaurant in support of Daytona Beach Bike Week.

Guest On-Air Personality
Neely joined 107 WBRR team Jan 2022. I was born a musician. I have been playing guitar for well over 30 years. I also own and operate Threshold Productions, LLC out of the Baltimore/DC area. I'm a metal head at heart, but through my work in the production and live event world, my tastes have wandered. I am the lead guitarist for Carbonstone, and through Carbonstone's efforts I got to know Wayne Benson. It just seemed to be meant to be, because we immediately began developing new ideas together. This is my first radio gig, and it has been a blast so far.
On-Air Personality: Metal Mayhem | Station Voiceovers
Kyle Joined 107 WBRR in Jan 2022, but really...Where do I start? I guess from the beginning, right? Well... I was born... Raised in the wilds of the Nebraska Tundra, groomed to be a Cattleman, then thrust violently into the modern age to learn the ways of the city folk. I grew up with one Country Radio Station and a Nasa-sized satellite full of this thing called "MTV". Music, especially metal has been my life from a very early age, rocking out to Ratt, Poison, Def Lepparrd and Bon Jovi... Graduating to Metallica, Pantera, Slayer and Anthrax...Taking it steps further into Slipknot, Slaughter To Prevail, In Flames and many many more. Fun Fact, James Hetfield taught me how to play guitar... He just doesn't know it (and don't tell him... those back payments would destroy me). Been Into the local Nebraska Scene statewide for the last 15 years, but just recently expanding world-wide through the Don't Kill The Vibe Facebook Group. I want to meet and listen to ALL the bands. I am the co-founder, one-half the dual guitar Melee, One-Half the dual vocal explosion, one-fifth musical direction for Lincoln, Nebraska hard-rock/Metal band, Dear Freida... put all those fractions together, you get one Full Kyle!
