TJ Trout’s last days on Albuquerque’s airwaves
Among the 10 just-spun tracks on 94 Rock:
Guns N’ Roses “Paradise City”
ZZ Top “Got Me Under Pressure”
Judas Priest “Genocide”
The Doors “Alabama Song”
AC/DC “You Shook Me All Night Long”
Some things in Albuquerque never ever change. I remember waiting, ready to pounce on the record button on my radio/cassette player. I was tuned into 94 Rock, and I was wanted to tape “Enter Sandman” by Metallica. I think I was 11, so it was the early ’90s. I thought that song was baaaaaaaaaaad.
TJ Trout would have been with the station five or six years at that point. After a quarter century with the station’s morning show, he’s retiring to a beach in Delaware. Wednesday, Dec. 21, will be his last day. I got a chance to hang out with him and talk shop for the feature this week. We discussed his history as the most well-known radio personality in Albuquerque and the future of radio.
