Marvelous Marvin was raised by a pack of wild records in New Port Richey. His dad, "Marv Boone," was a DJ until Rock and Roll came out and his dad said, "I can't play that noise," and became a newsman.
Marvin was infected with the radio bug early - but he actually worked for a living and played drums in various bands in Cleveland, OH. That's until he realized he could just show up in clubs, and DJ's get free drinks without having to haul around drums. He went to a broadcasting school and started in radio in 1977 at WGUL AM & FM.
He started a popular saturday night oldies show called "Old Gold Retold," which he took to Tampa, where it ran for over ten years. Marvin has worked at Mix 96, 1040 WHBO-AM, WFLA and Q-105, where he hosted the top-rated lunchtime request show, "The Bouffant Buffet" for almost 20 years.
Marvin has been the morning show host at WJQB True Oldies 106.3 since June 2009, where he is also the music director, playing his favorite music - the greatest hits of the Rock and Roll era. Marvin has a beautiful bride, Pamela, and around two cats.
Dino was born and raised in Baltimore, MD. He and his sister grew up in what some would call a “police family”. His father is a retired Major from the Baltimore City PD, whose team was the basis for the hit TV series, “Homicide, Life on the Street”. And his mother is an award-winning chef. With parents like these, Dino learned the meaning of dedication to what he loves – his family and music. Dino focused on his love of music and graduated from the Broadcasting Institute of Maryland. From there, he spent years developing his talent both in front of and behind the microphone. After spending a few years at XM Satellite Radio in Washington, DC, Dino married his soul mate. Now the two of them (and their Lab/Pit pup, named Guinness) are happy to call the Nature Coast home.
Dino is the “man behind the curtain” of the commercials on 106.3 and the host of “The Acoustic Café” podcast, and hour of unplugged versions of the songs you hear every day on your True Oldies Channel, 106.3.
