The year was 1991. Brick sized Cell phones were just breaking the mold of personal beepers, Legends of the Hidden Temple was on every TV screen and C&C Music Factory's 'Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)' was causing everyone to stop what they were doing and infact... dance now.
Then it happened. ErikZ was born and the world would forever be changed.
Okay, nothing really changed, at all, but someone needed to bring back the amazing-ness that was the 90's.
**Begin Real Bio HERE**
Modeling at the age of 5, Acting at the age of 7 and DJing his first real party at the age of 8, ErikZ has grown up with a love for Entertainment. Whether it's hanging out On-Air at 1035 KISSFM, DJing a festival for 4000+ patrons or Hosting both on screen and on stage, Erik is a performer to the core who loves nothing more than just being able to make others laugh.
After starting his own Internet Radio Station in High School and attending Columbia College Chicago for Radio Broadcasting, ErikZ joined the 1035 KISSFM Team as an Intern, then Promotions assistant, followed by a programming assistant and finally a On-Air Personality.
At the age of 21, Erik is one of the youngest personalities currently in the Clear Channel Media and Entertainment Network and THE youngest at KISS (which would explain why he is constantly making coffee runs for everyone).
When not in the studio, on stage, dancing or DJing, Erik loves taking long walks on the beach while reading 50 Shades of Gray... err.. he means, The Twilight Series.
Gotta admit, it's not um... horrible?
Kudos for being able to laugh at herself!
Oh ya know... Robin Thicke, Paramore, Enrique Iglesias, Flo-Rida, Travie McCoy, Icona Pop, Fifth Harmony and Avril Lavigne.... no big deal right?

This is the best thing I've seen in all of.... ever. Seriously.
It all started when a US Airways flight to Phoenix was delayed on takeoff. What happened next... well... just read.
Our flight is delayed. A woman on here is very upset because she has Thanksgiving plans. She is the only one obviously. Praying for her— elan gale (@theyearofelan) November 28, 2013
She's telling the flight attendants that it is Thanksgiving. She wants them to know she wants to have dinner with her family— elan gale (@theyearofelan) November 28, 2013
The male flight attendant said "I understand ma'am. I'm looking forward to seeing my family too." She responded "This isn't about you"— elan gale (@theyearofelan) November 28, 2013
Her family is very important to her, she says. Her family has a special recipe for stuffing. She needs to be there to help. It is crucial— elan gale (@theyearofelan) November 28, 2013
She has a connecting flight. Why doesn't anyone understand she has a connecting flight? Why do people not understand her needs?— elan gale (@theyearofelan) November 28, 2013
"Today is Thanksgiving! I'm supposed to be with my family. NOT with you people I barely know!"— elan gale (@theyearofelan) November 28, 2013
She had to sit down because we took off. She has been muttering "about DAMN time" and I can hear her breathing from 5 rows back— elan gale (@theyearofelan) November 28, 2013
I sent the lady a glass of wine and a note pic.twitter.com/GttnmQI25P
