Although she swears she is not a morning person, Kitty has been helping you wake up for nearly two decades on 105.5 Triple M. Putting to good use everything she learned in journalism classes at UW-Stevens Point, Kitty likes to delve into the important issues, like stuff spilled on the highway and rampaging animal stories.
#1 most asked question by fans is...What time do you have to get up every morning? (Around 4 or 4:30)
Three songs that sound great together... Bluebird by the Buffalo Springfield, Blue by the Jayhawks, For You Blue, by the Beatles
At the bar; beer, wine or mixer?... Beer, preferably a local microbrew that's not overly hoppy.
Favorite restaurant in Madison...It's a tie between Sprecher's and Old Chicago. It probably has a lot to do with the beer selection.
I'm famous for...my ability to recite the entire "Calgon, ancient Chinese secret" commercial from memory.
#1 question most asked by fans: Wait...I have fans? Are you Jonathan Suttin? or What happened?
Three songs that sound great together: Well, when I DJ...I've learned that if you play the "Chicken Dance," "Hokey Pokey," and "Beer Barrel Polka" at a wedding in Wisconsin, almost everybody gets up to dance (everybody else is too busy drinking).
At the bar; beer, wine or mixer: Mixer -- Old Fashions!
Favorite restaurant: Regionally? Probably Freshii's or the Green Vine (in Baraboo), although back in NY I loved Tim Horton's
I'm famous for: I have one of the documented cases of "Foot in Mouth" disease. Doctors said that I wouldn't make sense past the age of 5. The fact that I work in radio is a miracle really...everyday is a challenge. :)
#1 most asked question by fans is... "Is that your real hair?" Yep... genetics are a heck of a thing! The Great Clips bills are a pain, though.
Three songs that sound great together...Sylvan Esso's "Dress," Radiohead's "15 Step," and Santigold's "Disparate Youth." Gotta rep Wisconsin with Sylvan Esso!
At the bar; beer, wine or mixer?... Brandy Old Fashioned sour every time
Favorite restaurant in Madison...Does Frogmagination count? Or the spicy cheese bread at the farmers' market? Either way...cheese.
I'm famous for...eating a dozen donuts by myself on bad days. It's a problem.
#1 most asked question by fans is… What times are you normally on? Whoa! How do you do it? You must have to drink a lot of coffee to stay up all night.
Three songs that sound great together... Eleanor, Put Your Boots On – Franz Ferdinant, Fairies Wears Boots – Black Sabbath, and These Boots Are Made for Walkin’.
At the bar: beer, wine or mixer?... Yes please.
Favorite restaurant in Madison... Madison restaurants….! So many that are incredible. I’d have to say right now, Brasserie V on Monroe Street.
I'm famous for... Hand stands, my stainless steel .22 semi-automatic and making raspberry jam.
Early Mornings 12a-5a
#1 most asked question by fans is... Can you get me tickets?
Three songs that sound great together... This is totally unfair to ask a music person. Even more unfair to ask a radio person. May as well ask which three children are my favorite - but to be fair, I have three children, so that works out all right.
At the bar; beer, wine or mixer?... I usually order something that makes the bartender scramble for their mixology books. I like to experiment.
Favorite restaurant... I love to cook. My husband is a bona fide Southern born cook and our son is a culinary student. I'm going with "Our Home!"
