Tawny the Rock Chick
She’s been helping give you the Basin’s Real Rock for about five years now and here is a little more about Tawny the Rock Chick.
What got you interested in being a DJ?
“The thing that makes me the happiest is to make others laugh and smile as a direct result of something I did or said, and plus I’m the weirdest person I know so it was only natural!”
If you weren’t in radio, what do you think you would be doing as a career?
“Well I’m a hard working woman, when I’m not peddling my purretts (pornographic turrets) on the radio, I’m at my big girl job in oil and gas. Come on, this is West Texas, it’s what we do.”
Some people want to make it big in Hollywood, so if you could cast yourself in a movie, what would it be and who would you want to co-star with you?
“Well, it would be about Marilyn Monroe and I’d play Marilyn of course. Chris Evans would co-star as Captain America, cause I like them tights he wears. What? Don’t judge me.”
What is your favorite movie?
“I love the Goonies, and everything Will Ferrell’s been in.”
Favorite singer or band?
“Wow, that’s a loaded question when you’re asking a DJ, and especially when you’re asking one that sings. Too many to pick just one. Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Steven Tyler, Pink and ACDC are in the top
If you can’t make in Hollywood or get that million dollar record deal, you could get rich by winning the lottery. If you won, what would you spend the money on?
“First I’d give a big ole wad to the St.Judes Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, that place is amazing and I’m a big fan of what they do. Then I’d buy boobies, (priorities just say’n) then I’d move to Fiji.”
Ok, well, what is the best place you have ever traveled to?
“To date? A resort in Mexico, but I think St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands may take the number one spot.”
Where did you grow up?
“You mean when did I grow up? And the answer is not yet, but I am wearing big girl panties now so that’s a start.”
Do you have any hobbies?
“Aside from being awesome on a regular basis… I sing, like a bird, like a glorious pink, glittery, eargasm giving bird.”
You’ve said a few crazy things on the air, so what is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
“I don’t do crazy things. I say crazy things. I’m fond of life so crazy isn’t my thing, but I did contemplate getting on the bus with Hinder one time. But I didn’t want to ruin them for all other women so I decided to be kind and pass.”
I’m almost afraid to ask this, but what is the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done?
“First of all I do so many embarrassing things I’d have to write a book the size of the Bible. Second, I don’t get embarrassed too often, If I had to pick, I’d say the time my boyfriend at the time and my best friend had to carry me out of a honkey tonk bar in Kermit TX (wearing a very short dress mind you) drunk as a skunk to the car and then watch me as I got out of the car and preceded to vomit in my best friend’s parents front yard, showing it all to everyone. I then fell asleep in the hallway in my best friend’s parents’ house, whom I’d never had the pleasure of staying at their house before. I fell asleep in the hallway with a towel around my butt, then I am greeted for the duration of the day at every place we stop in town, the gas station, the Alco and then the golf course restaurant with “How are you feelin’ honey? I bet your hurtin today” or my personal favorite “Hey your that super drunk chick from the bar who stole my hat.” That wasn’t even that embarrassing for me so imagine what it takes to embarrass me.”
Ok, for the guys, what do you wear to bed?
(Drops papers) Um, where were we? Ok, what’s the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?
“Close my eyes and try to wish myself into Saturday. It hasn’t worked yet but I’m not giving up.”
Do you have any pet peeves?
“People who call my work number and say ‘Hey, whadaya doin?’ Ummmm, working clown shoes. You called me at work what do you think I’m doing?!”
Speaking of phones, what are some of the phone apps that you can’t get through the day without checking?
“Ummm, I just figured out how to play Words with Friends, so I’m the wrong person to ask about phone apps, I check the time a lot does that count?”
