Name: Tim Benoist
From: St Louis, MO
Works at: Union Chemical Operator at Afton Chemical in Sauget
Tim began listening to KSHE in the early 90s when he was in high school. Tim says that Rock n Roll Weekend by Sammy and In the Mood by Rush were the best part of delivering pizzas on Friday and Saturday evenings.
Tim loves Hair Band Duran. He thinks Mike does a great job and is fun to listen to. Having grown up in the 80s, he loves hair bands and is jealous of their hair. He suspects U-Man is too. He thanks U-Man for coining the term "socomo". He lives in Oakville and uses it often.
Tim is a huge Rush and Zeppelin fan and has seen Rush four times going back to the Roll the Bones Tour.
Tim doesn’t take life too seriously or for granted. He often gives thanks for his blessings and tries to help those less fortunate when he can. He is blessed with great friends, a wonderful wife, and three great kids.
KSHE songs that get Tim through the day:
Rush – Spirt of the Radio, Tom Sawyer, Red Barchetta & Xanadu
Led Zeppelin – Misty Mountain Hop, Good Times, Bad Times
Pink Floyd – Wish You Were Here
Metallica – One
Alice in Chains – Don’t Follow
Motley Crue – Girls, Girls, Girls
