Hey, I’m Josh. I was born in Poplar Bluff, MO. Statistically, I had a better chance of dying in a rolling meth lab explosion than making it on the radio. But here I am.

I’ve worked in Baton Rouge, Houston, Philadelphia, New Orleans, and Nashville. Most recently, my morning radio show aired in Nashville, Detroit, and Memphis.

I tell you that to tell you this… It’s always been my dream to be on the radio in St. Louis. As a kid, I wanted to be Jack Buck. My ambition was to one day work for KMOX, calling Cardinals baseball. That never happened, but I went in a different direction, working for sports radio stations and eventually becoming a classic rock morning dude.

When KSHE called, I answered. Working for this legendary radio station is the highlight of my career.

Real rock radio gains a real rockstar – Scott Gertken joins The Josh Innes Show as producer / on-air talent from a background well-rooted in stardom.

The origins of Scott’s story with Modern Day Zero started back in 1995 with a group called Mesh (later known as Mesh STL), where he joined as lead vocalist. The group continued to make waves locally, with their first independent album single “Maybe Tomorrow” earning significant airplay on 105.7 The Point.

Mesh STL was reborn as Modern Day Zero in 2004 with a new, more aggressive sound – their first official single titled “Sick Inside” quickly became a top requested song at The Point and several other stations nationwide. After three years of opening for acts such as Breaking Benjamin, Shinedown, Disturbed, Guns N’ Roses, and more, Modern Day Zero played their final show together before taking an indefinite hiatus. Every so often, the group reunites for local shows across St. Louis.

Since then, Scott has remained heavily involved in the media world, including producing, management, and ownership roles with several local entities. Nowadays, he’s adding KSHE 95 to his already impressive resume.
