Why Rob Zombie's Dragula on So You Think You Can Dance is a Good Thing

So, last night I'm watching So You Think You Can Dance on Fox (yeah you can rip on me for that later) and I hear the words "Superstition...Fear....and Jealousy"...no friggin' way - the couple is dancing to Rob Zombie's "Dragula"! I didn't really know what to think, it was kinda cool to hear a song that I love during the show, but that's MY Rob Zombie...I don't want to see those vapid millenial girls glomming on to El Superbeasto.  But overnight my opinion changed...why? Because any cross-over success of a Razor artist/band to a mainstream audience is a good thing. They hear it on SYTYCD, download the song, maybe stream more of his songs and then while they're scanning radio stations they hear Razor play Rob Zombie or something sonically similar and stop scanning. After all, we need to grab all the millenials we can get and groom another generation of rabid Razor listeners. More listeners= better ratings=more advertising dollars, which leads to more cool stuff we get to do with our listeners, i.e. Razor Edgefest, Extreme Razor Fan Contest, One Club Golf Outing, Harley Giveaways and more free stuff for YOU to win!

Plus, I'm sure Rob Zombie had to give consent for the show to use his song, so who are we to scoff? He's an artist creating music for commercial consumption and profit...so don't be that a-hole "He Sold Out" guy.

Roxanne Steele's Bio
Hometown: Muscoda, WI

Birthday: June 30th

People who I share a birthday with:
- Phil Anselmo
- Yngwie Malmsteen
- Mike Tyson
- Michael Phelps
- Terry Funk

Why I got into radio: Wanted to get paid to do something I already love to do, talk about and listen to music.

Other jobs I've had: Marketing for an online publishing company, resort hotel housekeeping, worked the register at my local grocery store in high school.

Hobbies: Movies, TV, Books

Strange Phobias: That I'll be kidnapped and made to ride shotgun in my own car. The kidnapper forgets to take my cellphone, so I pull it out from my pocket and hold it down between my body and the door of the car. I, for fear of death, can't look at my cellphone to dial, so I have to go stealth and dial 911 or text "help" just by the feel of the cellphone buttons. Then I realize I have a cell-phone with a flat touch screen and I'm screwed.

Favorite Movies: Jaws, Star Wars, The Crow, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Stripes, Animal House, Strange Brew

Best concerts I've attended:
- Fear Factory/Machine Head at Ryan's Ballroom in the early 2000's. Best energy I've ever felt at a show.
- 2nd row at Tool playing a theatre in Chicago
- Front row, right in front of Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue at the Resch Center

Random Radio Memory: Dimebag Darryl and Vinnie Paul, formerly of Pantera, came to the studio to promote their new band, DamagePlan. We did an interview with them on the air and we mentioned that we were hosting a local show that night at Ryan's Ballroom in Combined Locks. They said "We're In!" We all piled in their tour bus and pounded shots of Jagermeister on the way there. I could not believe this was happening. They checked out the band and signed autographs, did shots w/ listeners, etc. It was an incredible experience!

Death row meal: My dad's big family breakfast: eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, pancakes, extra sharp cheddar cheese, maple syrup, toast, milk and coffee.

Cartoon character I'd most like to have sex with:

Mark from G-Force (Battle of the Planets)

Favorite monkey:

Emperor Tamarin Monkey

If I could have any super power: Invisibility
