|DJ digitalflood (Chris)
We’re lazy. So if you really want to read this guy’s story check out DJ Digitalflood’s Bio page. I mean, does the guy really need to have two pages describing him? I think not (mostly because there’s no way anyone can write that much about him). DJ digitalflood is the Host and Sound Engineer/Producer/DJ of Digitalflood Pirate Radio. He invented and runs DF.com. He likes chicken and beer. There. That’s all you need to know. Now move along.

|DJ Georgette @ The Disco! (Gette)
DJ Georgette @ The Disco! is a Pirate Radio staple having appeared more times than any other guest host. That may have something to do with her being DJ digitalflood’s oldest daughter, but we think that is just a horrible rumor with no sustainable fact behind it (kidding). She first appeared on Pirate Radio at 5 years old and is now a teenager. Gette is a full time student. She likes writing her own original songs and singing along with YouTube karaoke videos. She loves art including drawing and also enjoys writing her own short stories.
|DJ SlipK (Pete)
DJ SlipK is a regular on digitalflood Pirate Radio and has guest hosted a whole bunch of times. DJ SlipK has been in the communications industry for over ten years including Web Site Design, Audio/Video Production, and Network Management. This includes producing his own audio web casts, as well as, a short film entitled “Metal Sandwich”. SlipK enjoys online role playing games, all things metal, good beer, and devouring a nice hot plate of chicken wings or chicken & waffles at 2 am. Pete works as an IT administrator for a telecommunications company full time.
|Aeryn Heather (Erin)
Aeryn has guest hosted on Pirate Radio several times. Aeryn has also contributed several pieces of graphic art to the site. She is married to Andy and is an Insurance Call Center Rep by day. She has been involved with communications for several years including a stint as an Intern at a local FM rock station (WRRV) in Orange County, NY. She enjoys metal of all kinds, glitter, and art.
Andy has appeared a bunch of Pirate Radio shows and probably said one thing, which probably wasn’t a full sentence. He’s more than the strong silent type though. Andy has been a firefighter, an IT Specialist for a Medical firm, and currently works for a large communications provider as Senior Technician on a nationwide Help Desk. Andy is a huge Eagles fan and is happily married to Aeryn.
|Skow From The East (Ryan)
Skow has appeared several times on Pirate Radio and also guest hosted a few times as well. Skow is a huge metal fan, but has a huge libary of CDs and MP3s spanning numerous genres. He often helps other Pirate Radio guest hosts find some of the rarer tunes that have spun on the show. Skow works full time as a civilian Aviation Tech in the US Air Force. Skow also contributes the voice of Macho Man Randy Savage to the show.
Shiva the Cat was both the Welch family pet and a digitalflood Pirate Radio mainstay. Many of our guests met this three legged cat and were inspired by how it never held her back. She passed away in the April of 2009 of terminal lung cancer. Shiva was born sometime in 1999 (she was a stray so nobody knows her exact month of birth). You can hear her often referred to by radio guest during Pirate Radio shows as “Tripod”. She loved meeting new people and Pirate Radio recordings quickly became one of her favorite times to come meet those new people. She loved being petted and playing with toys. She loved hopping on the computer during radio show recordings as well. She was adopted by DJ digitalflood from a local animal shelter in 2000 and spent the rest of her life living with his family. Veterinarians were never sure if her partial right hind leg was the result of a birth defect or an injury, but it didn’t stop her from getting around at all. We miss you and love you Shiva… thank you for teaching us to never let minor disabilities hold us back from living life to its fullest.
|Groucho (The Gritch)
Groucho the Cat is both the Welch family pet and the official digitalflood Pirate Radio mascot. He can sometimes be heard meowing in the background of Pirate Radio segments. He’s often yelled at for getting into trouble and attempting to “foil recordings” to further his plans of world domination. Other times he can be heard bouncing off the walls during segments and often has attacked the computer during recording. Groucho likes appearing on the df.com web site where he often spouts off about blowing things up or dares you to talk about his pink pirate hat. He’s bad ass like that. Groucho’s hobbies include eating, sleeping, and using the cat box. He loves tuna and his favorite band is Journey. Groucho wants to be an evil world dictator one day, but in the meantime until that pans out he spends the day licking himself.
