Favorite Album: “Paul’s Boutique” - Beastie Boys
Growing up in Chicago in the early 80’s Joe was exposed to all kinds of music. His parents were very much into dancing and both loved singing, not to mention his older brothers and sister had very unique tastes of their own. His first concert he attended was Run-DMC’s Raising Hell Tour which featured the Beastie Boys as the opening act. Joe loved how both groups were able to combine sounds from different styles into one harmonic landscape. The hard drums, the syncopated vocals, it was intoxicating to the ears. So when the time came for the Beastie’s follow-up in 1989, Joe bought Paul’s Boutique the very day it was released. The amalgamation of sounds that would make up The Beastie Boys sonic palette was so intriguing. Never before had Joe thought you can combine all of these different sounds and elements into one cohesive album. Eventually Joe’s love for music and sounds got him into DJing, and eventually working in Broadcasting and Production. With such a busy yet focused mind, the sonic recipe of Paul’s Boutique is very much how Joe is in life. There is not one thing that can define him but instead a cumulation of different things that come together to work as one. Needing to constantly keep his mind stimulated, National Aircheck was a natural fit for Joe. Being in Production allows him to take on multiple facets of audio and video projects, and come up with cutting edge and innovative ideas. Joe is always testing out new and improved ways to perform searches and deliver content to clients. In an environment where technology is changing by the day, feel comfortable with someone that can adapt with those changes and even stay one step ahead of them.
