NNJ Morning Show - 5:00am - 10:00pm
“Borasio” -- aka Jimmy, Junior, Big B or any of the other affectionate nicknames that he answers to -- was born at St Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, NJ on March 4th 1972. He graduated from James Caldwell High School in 1990 and immediately started his own private DJ and entertainment company.
Borasio is an avid animal lover and an especially strong supporter of harsher punishment for animal abusers. His quick wit and life in the music business has provided lots of unique opportunities including working with Cuba Gooding Jr, RuPaul, The Bee Gees, Barry White, and David Lee Roth to name a few!
Borasio relocated to historic Flagstaff, Arizona to work on a heritage radio station for 2 years, then moved on to New York City. He was on the air on the morning of September 11th, 2001 -- during the attacks on the World Trade Center. “It was a life changing experience,” Borasio says. “It made me realize how important terrestrial radio is to people in their everyday lives and it made me so proud to be a part of that system -- to be there for the people who needed information and a calming voice. It gave my purpose a much greater meaning”
Borasio currently resides in Sparta, NJ, and can be heard on the TriState’s Rock Station, 103.7 NNJ, every Monday through Saturday morning from 6 to 10am.
The nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's class of 2013 have been announced, and for the first time ever fans will get a say in who will be inducted.
First-time nominees Rush, Deep Purple, N.W.A., Public Enemy, Albert King, The Marvelettes and Procol Harum join previously nominated acts Chic, Heart, Donna Summer, Kraftwerk, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Randy Newman, Paul Butterfield Blues Band and The Meters.
To be eligible for a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nomination, artists must have released their work at least 25 years prior to appearing on the ballot. That means this year's hopefuls released their first single in 1987 or earlier. Blues guitarist Albert King has been eligible since 1987, while 2013 marks the first year the seminal hip-hop acts N.W.A. and Public Enemy are eligible.
From today through December 5, fans can vote at several sites including Rockhall.com to boost their favorite artists' chances of making the cut. The top five acts selected by those votes will become part of a special "fans' ballot" that will be counted alongside the international voting body of more than 600 artists, historians and industry members.
The winners will be revealed in December and the 28th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE on Saturday, April 18, 2013. The show will be broadcast on HBO at a later date.
