(Gibson) Rockers aren't known for being morning people, but Nikki Sixx is about to take over morning radio at a legendary rock station. Dallas-based radio station 97.1 The Eagle KEGL-FM and Premiere Networks have dropped the news that Nikki Sixx's syndicated radio show, Sixx Sense with Nikki Sixx, will move to mornings starting on Monday, May 7. Sixx will air a customized version of the radio show for Dallas-Ft. Worth listeners weekday mornings from 6 to 10 a.m.
Sixx says he can sense an emotional reaction from his listeners when he's on the air. "Radio is an opportunity to say something into a microphone, and whether you play a song or say something provocative or funny, it makes people have an emotional reaction," Sixx told Gibson.com. "They feel something. They feel good. They feel bad. They feel angry. They feel disappointed. You have an opportunity to change something, and for me, that's where radio has always been a bit like magic.
"When I turn on the radio, it creates a mood, and I really enjoy that. Kerri Kasem, my co-host, and I do seven shows in four days, and it's very organized. It's a lot of work, and it's the most fun I've had outside of playing rock and roll. We laugh every day. No matter what you're going through, you have to deliver. If you're going through a high, you have to control that, and if you're going through a low, you have to control that, because that part of your life is personal and you always have a responsibility to entertain them." more on this story
