Meet the Host
I’m a Latina girl with big dreams that loves entertainment and Journalism. After a few semesters at Cerritos College I applied for an internship at Power 106 and I got it. I can’t even begin to explain what a great experience I had and how much I learned while I was there. When my internship ended I took all the things that I learned and applied them to my new endeavors. I now work on a few websites one particularly called LabLifePro in which I interview DJ’s and Producers. I also have my own website called FirmeRadioTV.com and there you can find all my interviews, entertainment news and personal experiences. As you may already know I’m the host of Firme Radio, which is now live streaming through PharcydeTV.com on Thursdays at 9:30p.m PST. The show is open format music, I have a guest DJ every week and a guest Artist. I also work for Mega 96.3/97.9 La Raza as a Board Operator here in Los Angeles.
With over 10 years of experience under his belt and the ability to keep people dancing all night whether it’s at the club or in your car, it's clear to see why DJ Choice One is one of the top choices when it comes to DJs. Inspired by legends, such as Jazzy Jeff, The Baka Boyz & the 1580 KDAY Mixmasters the LA native went from being a bouncer at various nightclubs, to DJ-ing the same clubs on his nights off, to opening up for some of his favorite DJs until eventually landing a job at one of LA’s hottest Hip-Hop radio stations 93.5 KDAY. Growing up DJ Choice One was always a fan of music and had an ear for knowing what was going to be a hit. Although it wasn’t until late in life that he thought about seriously pursuing a career in DJing, his talent could not be denied and it was inevitable that he would turn his love for music into a successful DJ career. He invested in his first DJ equipment and immediately began learning as much as he could about the craft. Never the one looking for the shine he has tended to play the background and let his skills speak for themselves. What mattered most to him the most was the respect from his peers and those he admired more than the money & fame. It was after appearance on popular internet music show that he caught the attention of 93.5 KDAYs mixshow coordinator who was also on the show as well. A couple months later he was asked to make a demo that eventually made its way into the hands of the program director. Within a week he was offered a job and made his radio debut during the Thanksgiving mix in 2010. Never imagining that in such a short amount of time he would land a spot on the radio, especially in his hometown, keeps him striving for more. Since his debut, DJ Choice One has become a favorite amongst the station’s listeners and co-workers. When he is not DJing on the radio, you can find him in various nightclubs throughout the states, DJing and hosting a variety of online video and radio shows as well as DJ-ing many events or concerts involving some of your favorite artists. He is constantly working hard to better himself by surrounding himself with veterans in the game as well as up and coming DJs that possess his same passion for music. He is humbled with each amazing opportunity and each achievement he has been able to accomplish because of his love for music. His hard work ethic and dedication have him on a fast track to becoming a household name. The future can only hold even greater opportunities for DJ Choice One.
