What up Southwest Florida! You have thousands of palm trees, miles of some of the world’s best beaches, some scary ass alligators, and now you’re stuck with me! Eric “The Funky 1” is the radio name but you can just call me Eric or “E”. The "Funky" part of my name stands for my love for all music, especially EDM aka Electronic Dance and House music. Don't get it twisted Ladies...I ALWAYS smell good! I was born and raised in San Francisco, Cali and started the radio career there in the Bay Area at WiLD 94.9 (KYLD), then spent some great years at 102.5 KDON in beautiful Monterey, then back to KYLD, a stint at 99.1 KGGI in Riverside, have run a couple nightclubs living the rock star nightlife scene and now have made the move across the country to sunny Florida which has always been a second home to me. Now I’ve made it my permanent home and looking forward to spending every weekday afternoon 2p-6p with you on 105.5 The Beat Southwest Florida's PARTY Station and also serving as The Beat’s Program Director working with such a talented staff! You can listen at work on 1055thebeat.com, or from anywhere on your mobile device with the iHeartRadio app!
A little more about yours truly...I'm half Puerto Rican, half Salvadorean with nothing but love for everyone! I’ve heard that I have a great personality, good sense of humor, very mature, intelligent, always have a positive vibe, confident, and a smart ass...I say "Wow, all that? I just think I'm a smart ass!" Besides all things Pop Culture, and Entertainment like music, movies and TV, I'm a big sports guy so I’ll see you at the games! I'm very down for the community supporting animal rights, fighting homelessness & hunger, and support for our troops over seas...thank you for everything you do and we hope to have you home safe!
