Alicia Caffero

General Manager: Alicia Caffero emerged from a dark hole, deep in the suburbs of Chicago, on April 19 of 1997. From there, she grew into the loud and lively drag queen enthusiast she is today. Alicia runs two radio shows and goes by many aliases, such as DJ In, DJ Out and DJ Turnip. She is knowledgeable in subjects of all kinds, both typical and controversial. There is no one quite like Alicia, and because of this, she remains as one of FBI’s top most wanted. *

* If you have information regarding Alicia Caffero’s whereabouts, please contact (202) 324-3000

GM Assistant: After emerging from a carboniferous bog roughly 200 million years ago, scientists still haven’t quite figured out what Maya’s purpose is yet. She is commonly found knitting, making spreadsheets, and professing her deep love for AJJ to anyone who will listen. If you’ve collected data on this creature, please alert your local animal control facility.







Olivia D'Amico GM Assistant: Olivia D’Amico is obsessed with dogs and that’s all you really need to know about her. Dogs, dogs, and lots of dogs. Oh, and the fact she’s from New York City (if you didn’t know that she’ll definitely tell you about it soon.) She loves to talk and take photos of things (specifically nature things, she is a documentary photography major, after all.) If she had a superpower, it would be the ability to summon any fluffy dog within a 5 mile radius with the snap of a finger (who would’ve guessed.)





GM Assistant: My name’s Abby, I’m eighteen, and I peaked in ninth grade when I performed “Don’t Drop That Lollipop” at the talent show to a gymnasium full of adoring fans. I eat peanut butter daily and I’m rarely caught without socks on. My aspirations include driving in a demolition derby, opening a waffle shop, and not running out of storage on my phone. My friends call me Sandy Cheeks, but you can call me DJ Dabby Abby.





Program Director : My name is Devin Brown, I served in the 68th russian infantry in 1892. My hobbies include DJ-ing, baking, and hitting bullies where it hurts. I believe as Americans we can’t be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps its fate that we will once again be fighting for our freedom, not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution but from annihilation. We’re fighting for our right to live, to exist. And should we win the day, the 4th of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the world declared in one voice: “We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight!

Program Assistant: It was a normal day in the park for Mr. and Mrs. Reyes, when suddenly Mrs. Reyes felt movement in her tummy. Then quickly came 1999 and Jayde, a beast among men, was born. Through the depths of Jacksonville, North Carolina, people stood before God and witnessed their imminent fate. Jayde has travelled to three countries and inhabited three states in search of her purpose. The Guardians of SCAD Radio have taken her in, trained her to become a DJ warrior, and taught her to accept herself for who she truly is: The Beauty of the Beast.








Ellen GillespieContent Director: As the prophecy foretold, Ellen Gillespie was born and raised in Kansas City, Kansas. To master her abilities, she spent years wandering the world. From the boiled and buttered bottoms of Piccadilly, to the Mad Max wasteland known as Australia, her name is known. She has harnessed her skills at writing screenplays and reviews to the point that she grows too powerful. She’s also a pretty big stickler for proper grammar. And now she’s back, to let you know, she can really pro a phrase.

To join her content team email content@scadradio.org







Ashton FaydenkoProduction Director: Ashton has always served as a sort of local myth to the people of Denver. Only emerging from his mountain cave twice a year for late night chicken wing runs, this cryptid has been a subject of fascination for all who have had the fortune to encounter him. When not terrifying hikers all across the Rockies, Ashton can be found at SCAD Radio, recording things and making broken stuff slightly less broken.

Assistant: He has none! Please help him by emailing production@scadradio.org.








Kush Das


Music Director: This is Kush and this is his bio. He likes good food, loud music, and has a dumb haircut. He curates music here, but don’t be surprised if you catch him jamming to either August Burns Red or Tchaikovsky. Kush is the tan kid with a black t-shirt on at all times (except for when he’s not.)

Stop by and say hi!

He also takes music submissions and inquiries at music@scadradio.org.








Music Assistant: El is a Savannah local, who spends her time listening to the music from Warped Tour ‘12 and being used as a pillow by her dog. Her dad, a 25-year radio veteran, once told her not to work in radio — oops.

Yes, El is short for something, but even we don’t know for what.







Street Team: Jay Zacarias, former president of Trump University, impregnated Molly Ringwald, helped put Pablo Escobar on the map, and opened the legendary home of punk rock: CBGB. Jay is also the current leader of the Jake Paul fan club and hates puppies…a lot. He refuses to explain where the root of this disdain comes from, but we urge to keep all things cute and dog-like 500 feet away for him. We warned you.






Kendall ShepardPromotions Director: Kendall has always hated people. There wasn’t a moment that she didn’t hate people. She has moved around a lot in her life, mostly because she’s hated people. If you see her in the streets, don’t make conversation with her. She will glare at you and it will make you insecure. If you ever wonder what she is thinking about, it’s usually this:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iuJvZdKlJH8. That, and dogs. Omigod, she loves dogs.

Make her nightmares a reality by talking to her at promotions@scadradio.org








Promotions Assistant: Anthony Lieberman is loud, a little arrogant and a lot Canadian. He is also Jewish, but don’t worry he uses his jew powers for good, because with great power comes great responsibility. He is not used to these American cultures like bathroom or chick filet, He is learning… but not quickly.

Inquire about his favourite Canadian hobbies… he has a lot.

Katarina PackisSocial Media Director: Katerina Packis was born and raised in the comeback city of Cleveland. She hosts a radio show called Garden Variety and her top 2 favorite musicians are The Beatles and Ben Folds. She is a crazy cat lady and husky connoisseur. If you see her on her phone during a meeting, she’s probably just doing her job.
