97X - Rumblings from the Big Bush

Ali Castellini - from punk rock girl to professor

June 6, 2020

Ali Castellini got her 97X gig by accident, when a fellow Miami student phoned her early one Friday morning and asked her to do the weather forecast on the Breakfast Club. She wound up spending a few years on the air at 97X in the early-to-mid 90s before moving on to a station in Virginia Beach, VA, then hosting the nationally syndicated radio show "Todays Women" and later working as an on-air host and producer for World Cafe at WXPN in Philly. Now she's "corrupting minds" (her words) as a comms professor at Temple. We chat with Ali about all the lessons she learned during her radio days... as well as Matchbox cars, Dick Clark and Lenny Kravitz.
