On July 13, 1981, the world met Barry Funkhouser, a future radio DJ and host with the most obviously made-up name ever. He got started with social media, like everybody else, on Friendster, but went on to create profiles on most of today’s popular sites like Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, but not Google Plus, because nobody uses that shit. As the world of broadcasting began to faulter, a brilliant light was cast upon the world, and internet radio was created and Barry Funkhouser was pleased. For it was good.  He currently works for Iheartradio and hates writing bios. He loves long walks on the beach and lives with his two cats and a wild boar in Los Angeles.
