About the Hosts

The Itch

The Itch rock radio show has been on the air for 17 years. Now its hosts have entered the world of podcasting to bring rock news, reviews, and interviews exploring the deep connection between people and music. If it gets your head banging and your blood flowing, we're here to scratch that itch.

Dan

Dan co-founded The Itch in a tiny room on the campus of Lindenwood University in February 2004 with one goal in mind: to rock as much of St. Louis as the signal would allow.

KC

KC inadvertently named the show when he misheard the station manager's advice to "find a niche" as "find an itch," to which he replied: "One that needs to be scratched."

Aaron

Aaron has spent half of The Itch's existence living in a different city, but found a way to bridge the gap with his Itch brethren by producing the podcast.
