Thursday, 04.11.02 - THE THURSDAY QUESTIONS WITH...Christina Filiaggi [of Metro Networks]

Where/when were you born?
I was born November 27, 1968 in Westchester, Pennsylvania.

Do you have any pets?
I do not have any pets, I have enough trouble keeping a plant alive.

Do you have a favorite hobby?
Whenever someone asks me what my hobbies are, I never know what to say. I really don't think I have any hobbies or maybe I just don't have enough money to have any "cool" hobbies. I don't know if being lazy is actually a hobby but it may be the reason I don't have one (unless watching TV counts). I used to work-out all the time but haven't for the past few years, I think I'm too old to exercise.

What was your first radio gig?
I started out in radio as Steve Dahl's office manager, helped out on his radio show and eventually became one of his producers.

What CD's do you have in your home/car CD player right now?
In my CD player right now is Lucinda Williams' new CD, "Essence"; I am also a big fan of one of the producers and writers on this new album, Charlie Sexton.

When/where can people hear you?
You can hear me in the morning on WUSN (US-99), WPWX (Power 92), WLLI (96.7 Will Rock), WBIG, WWHN, and WLKG in Milwaukee. In the afternoon I am on with Roe Conn and Garry Meier on WLS (890AM).

Who's the one famous person you'd like to meet?
The one famous person I would love to meet is Howard Stern. (Howard and Roe & Garry are the only radio shows that actually make me laugh out loud).

If you weren't in radio, what would you be doing?
If I weren't in radio I would be waitressing. I did that for about 8 years and I have never made as much money at any other job.

Would you rather everyone think your best friend was an idiot OR just really ugly?
My best friend just happens to be super-intelligent and those people are never pretty; besides, hanging around with someone who is ugly can only make me look better and that's always a plus.
