About the Hosts

Dave Sloan


Dave grew up in the San Fernando Valley and has worked in radio on both the programming and promotion sides.  He still loves the music he heard on KROQ in the 80s, especially REM and The Replacements and came up with the brilliant idea of a podcast devoted to the greatest decade.    .

Holly Cantos, while born in NY, and currently residing on LA’s Westside, is proud of her San Fernando Valley roots. Her love of music and radio started early, beginning in the 70s with Donny Osmond and 93KHJ.  After studying Communications…and meeting Dave…in college, Holly landed her first jobin radio syndication, made a pit-stop at a Spanish-language network (had to keep up the Spanish!), and then as VP of Marketing at CMI, where she helped develop successful TV marketing campaigns for radio stations. She still loves radio, AND the music she heard on KROQ in the 80s, especially, but not limited to, U2 and The Cure, and gives Dave full credit for the brilliant idea of a podcast devoted to this musically-perfect decade.
