    Jesse Salazar

    What’s up party people? My name is Jesse Salazar, aka Boy Loco. I’ve been a radio dj for over 13 years. But, as this is my bio, let’s back up to when I was just a wee-little Loco.

    I grew up in the small west Texas town of Odessa. From the beginning, I embraced hip hop music even when it was only known as rap. I remember being 8 years old, the extended family would get together at a park to play volleyball on Sundays. At that time, the only source for this new genre called “rap” was a one-hour specialty show on a community radio station (shouts out to DJ TuTu). So, while my family members played at the park, I was huddled on a bench with my single cassette deck, or “jambox” as we called it, recording the entire show. I was in love with the sound and in some very small way, believe because of my loyalty to it, I contributed to the success of the genre we see and hear so much today.

    Now for the nuts-and-bolts.

    After receiving a degree in recording engineering in Houston, I landed my first on-air position at a local tejano radio station in Odessa. At my first chance, I jumped ship to a hip-hop station. From there, I found myself quickly advancing to high profile positions in major markets including Houston, Tampa, Austin, Phoenix and now Dallas.

    I believe hip hop is a state of mind and am honored to represent it every morning/afternoon on 97.9 The Beat.

    Make sure you reach out to me on FACEBOOK and TWITTER because I need to get caught up on all the places I need to visit, here in the DFW !!

    Pskillz

    Peter “Pskillz” Dorsey is a native of St. Louis, Missouri. This energized entertainer has been performing in front of thousands of audiences since a very rare age.  It was when national recording artist John P. Kee spotted his 6 year old electrifying energy and crowd charisma in the aisles of a sold out theater in Chicago, Illinois. Peter began his public education school experience in 7th grade at Ferguson Middle School in the Ferguson-Florissant School District. After Graduating from McCluer Senior High, in 2008 as Homecoming King. Pskillz relocated to Grambling, Louisiana to attend Grambling State University, majoring in Mass Communication with a concentration in Public Relations.

    After two weeks of adjusting into to college life, Pskillz was offered a position to be the G.S.U. Tiger mascot. Since sophomore year, Pskillz has been performing non-stop throughout his career, even as a student.  Quickly the passion for hosting, and hype manning the crowd became a heavy interest. He has humbly  shared and rocked the Mic with a enormous list of various artist ranging from  Chris Tucker, Charlie Murphy, Nick Cannon, Bruce Bruce, Affion Crocket, Lil Duval,  Meek Mill, Wale, Meloni Fiona, 2 Chains, Miguel, Ace Hood, Travis Porter, Elle Varner, Lil Snupe, YG, DJ Mustard, and Shorty Da Prince. Mr. “Point me to the Crowd “ expeditiously evolved into a populated puzzle piece in demand around campus.

    Pskillz is blessed to have a very diverse background of talents and levels of skills. Ranging from tap dance, Jazz, Break dancing , and even acrobats. Hobbies of interest include Roller Skating, Djing & uplifting the youth. Pskillz is a proud member of  Omega Psi Phi Fraternity inc. from the Gamma Gamma Chapter of the 9th district. In May of 2017, Pskillz became “Master P” , literally after completing his Master’s Degree in Criminal Justice. Radio life has been a major avenue that has expanded the Pskillz brand in the DFW. Philippians 4:13 and Romans 8:28 are two bible verses that help shape the Pskillz journey. Martin Laurence, Michael Jackson, & Michel Jordan are his 3 M’s of motivation.
