Aron Bender hangs out with PJ Butta -- an LA hip hop radio icon from the 92.3 The Beat days in the 90’s to now doing afternoons on the legendary KDAY. In addition to his on-air work he teaches broadcasting, runs his own podcast network, and pours The Nightcap weeknights at 8pm Pacific / 11pm Eastern on Twitch playing slow jams in front of the fireplace — using that platform to help people in need. All this fresh off of his 11-day battle with COVID. We discuss his inspiration for The Nightcap, the future of radio/audio, and he ranks his top 3 bourbons.
