What “hidden talents” do you possess that we might not know about?
Toby Knapp, WIHT:  I’m pretty good at writing and reporting and photography, which have always been my passions even before this radio thing. I thought I was going to be working at the Washington Post or New York Times.

Matt “MJ” Johnson, KUDD: I’m a Fantasy Football wizard!

Jammer, WEZB: I won lots of medals in music trivia contests on cruise ships.

R Dub! Z90: I can recite the entire “McDonald’s Menu Song” on demand.

Dom Theodore, Radio Animal Media Strategies: Through the years I've become a pretty good stock picker and real estate investor. Even some property development!

Joey Brooks, WMIA: I've played hockey since I was kid and got a start at WAAF after working out at the same gym as former Bruins and now morning guy Lyndon Byers during the off season. He got me on the local music show and I've been on-air since then!

Reid, KZZP: I know how to fix cars and build engines. My first job was working in a body shop.

Derrick “DC” Cole, WLAN: I'm a ninja! It's even more hidden because I'm kind of fat nowadays. 

John Mayer, WFLZ: I’m double-jointed.

JB King, KLUC: A few people have told me that I have a little psychic ability to predict things.

Kevin Kash, WWEG: I have a knack for getting the prize out of claw machines. Fascinating, I know.

Matt Talluto, WBYR: I'm the world’s greatest "white" beat boxer.  My other talents I'll plead the 5th on.

Chris Michaels, FM 100: I am very good with the grill! I can make some killer ribs.

Twisted Todd, WTPT: I’ll disclose the “PG” rated one (which may hint at one of the “X” rated) and that is I can touch my nose with my tongue.  Oh yeah, baby...

Roxy Myzal, hardDrive: I'm an excellent cook, decent editor and gardener. 
Frankie V, KSSX: Betcha didn't know that I can fade up a haircut with the best of them.  I taught myself back in middle school how to use clippers.  It came in handy in college when I needed cash.  I would set up shop in the frat house bathroom and charge $5! "Five Dollar Fades by Frankie!"

Brian Mack, WXXL: I did a really good job painting my guest bathroom. I really cut in well on the edges, and I was really impressed with myself.  Plus, of all hockey players in the world, I think I would be in the top 50%. I’m also a less than average bass player in a band.

Jon Zellner, iHeartMedia: I’m able to name #1 songs by the week for the past 60 years and a lot of other useless music trivia. If you give me an important event in history, I can name the date it happened and I know way too much about The Brady Bunch and other TV trivia. Basically, I’m a Pop culture nerd.

Kobi, WNRW/WLGX: I was a pretty good baseball player in college (centerfield) and played with Josh Hamilton of the Texas Rangers.

Fish Boy, WKRZ: I cook like a champ and I was a helluva soccer player before I blew out my ankle.

Jeff Hurley, iHeartMedia: I replaced a toilet and sink in my guest bathroom last week.  Don’t act like you’re not impressed.

Java Joel, WAKS: Give me any HIT from the 80s, I can give you time of year it was popular and come pretty close to the peak position on Billboard too. C’mon Premiere. Give me my own syndicated 80s show!

Heather Deluca, WSJO: I’ve got RAP SKILLS!

Big Rob, KSME: I can roller skate with the best of them. I grew up in a rink and in fact it's how I decided I wanted to be in radio. I started working at my local rink in Colorado at 11 years-old and heard so many times that I should be in radio. Somehow it all worked out Someday I'd like to own my own rink. Pipe dream.

Jason Squires, KFRR: I’m the true master of the figure four leg lock.

Chuck Damico, WMMR/WBEN: I was the drummer in a very successful Jersey shore cover band for a few years.  We were called F-Bomb.
Jonathan Shuford, WRVW: I’m a classically trained pianist.  Also have become quite adept recently at diapering.

Mike “OD” O’Donnell, WKRZ: I’m actually a really good carpenter when I don’t saw my fingers off halfway. I also make a really mean omelet in the morning.

Kobe, WWHT: I’m an excellent cook. I definitely know my way around the kitchen.

Jared Banks, KUDD: I'm a huge fan of rugby and play for my local rugby club as well as a men's touring side! Last weekend we became the National Men's Masters Champions in Aspen, Co!

Gina Gray, WERO: My thumbs are double-jointed, I can twirl my tongue, and I can sing really well. I’m an awesome harmonizer. I also do great “car karaoke!”

Mark Adams, KYLD/KIOI: Life’s professional road is often a winding affair with many unforeseen bends and turns. There was that season of vaudevillian puppeteering throughout eastern Estonia, the challenging winters of South American whooping llama herding throughout the Andes in both Argentina and Bolivia, and who could forget being on assignment with Obscure Sports Quarterly covering the thrilling semifinals match up of SKA and Chinse Taipei during the Korfball throw down of ’89? I also have inadvertently and thoroughly memorized all of the dialogue from Monty Python. With respect to John Cleese, I also enjoy a good bouzouki and am one whom also delights in all manifestations of the Terpsichorean muse.

Brian Michel, iHeartMedia/Atlanta: I can code in various application languages and frameworks…PHP, Ruby on Rails, Coldfusion, etc.

Sassy, WKXJ: I can touch my tongue to my nose...this has helped me well on dates

Jimmy Steele, WRFY: Photography -  It’s opened my eyes to a whole new world!

Chase Murphy, KXXM: I can play the star-spangled banner by blowing between my pointed and middle finger.  It sounds like a trombone.

Andy Hall, KAZR: I'm a Fantasy Football pro.  This is my 24th season and in addition to hosting afternoon drive on Lazer 103.3, I also host the '515 Fantasy Football' show on iTunes, Stitcher and our ESPN affiliate.
