Hi all! I'm Shawn Foxx. Being on KRNA is something I said would be really cool, way back in the early 90s when I first got into radio broadcasting. I'd have never guessed it would actually happen. Dreams DO come true if you never let go of that dream. I've been on the air in Eastern Iowa since 2008. As they say, "When you love what you do for a living, you never work a day in your life." I'm lucky that I get to live out that saying. Looking forward to being with you all each afternoon and I'm excited to meet you when I'm out of the "Rock and Roll Skybox!"
