6 1/2 years ago Aaron Phillips was coming off a two year run as a co-host on a popular sports show on AM radio. His pal for 12 years Ricky Cash had been pestering him about doing another show. We decided on Vegas Unwrapped which would unwrap Las Vegas without focusing on the Strip. Almost immediately the show went from one hour to two hours reaching a core live audience along with many listeners who downloaded the show on podcast. Around the same time we were approached by Toni Martini who has been an entertainer for 50 years. He wanted to do a show about his life. His was our first show under a production company we formed called Vegas Unwrapped Productions. We decided right then and there that the ultimate goal for us would be to have our own Internet Radio Station.
Fast forward 6 years and we found ourselves on VegasAllNetRadio.com. We met Mike Fox, a board operator we renamed "Bobcat" who became a member of the show, but it wasn't until we brought on John Stiles who we renamed "Jpeg" to do the video portion of the show we knew the ultimate goal was within sight. Since July you can find us on our YouTube channel. John picked up on our dream immediately and proceeded to look for investors. His enthusiasm and drive was contagious and little over a month ago the opportunity of a lifetime literally fell into our arms.
Lotus Broadcasting the parent company of VegasAllNetRadio.com, as well as KLAV and KRLV had decided to bring it's AM Stations to their present location and shut down VANR and it's programming. They were looking for a group to purchase VANR and keep it on the air. Sitting right in front of them were Phillips Cash and Jpeg. To make a long story short, in less than a month we put a package together that was acceptable to Lotus and right up to the last day of operation for Lotus on April 30th we slipped right in under the deadline by less than 30 minutes.
So now off we go.... with 35 shows in the fold and more on the way we look forward to working with a great staff, high quality shows, and show hosts with the same passion we have had since day one when Vegas Unwrapped made their debut on March 13th, 2009.
More to come,
