Host, Scott Dallavo

At 18, when his High School classmates made up the "Most Likely to be Radio DJ" recognition especially for him, Scott's fate was pretty much sealed.

From the reggae-centric and top rated "Get Up Stand Up" show on The Beat and KDAY to Indie 103.1's tribute to original punk and indie "Retrograde", Scott has mastered deep dives into multiple genres, but can blend many effortlessly into a genre-bending adventure in rhythm. It it rocks, it works, no matter where it came from.

Scott has opened for Madness, The Specials, the Pretenders, Lily Allen, Adam Ant, Blondie, The Damned, the New York Dolls, Echo and the Bunnymen, Bill Idol, Paul Weller and just about every reggae act on planet earth. He carries mixtapes in his back pocket in case of emergency and isn't afraid to use them.
