Episode 29: Bryan Jay Miller, Digital Savant

Bryan Miller, a.k.a. “Funky Fresh” and/or “Bryan Jay, Digital Savant,” joined 97X as a Breakfast Club intern in the mid-90s, and stuck around after graduation, working in sales, promotions and eventually managing the station’s digital presence (website and stream) and serving as the station’s general manager when it went online-only. Dave and Damian talk to Brian about his roles, testifying before Congress, and living on a boat. We also try to figure out where all the music (CDs, LPs, etc.) that woxy.com owned wound up.

Here’s the clip of Bryan’s very heartfelt and eloquent speech in front of the House of Representatives Small Business Committee in 2007:

It’s fun hearing Bryan say “honky tonk”…

And here’s a clip of Bryan on Cincinnati’s Public Television affiliate, promoting woxy.com on WVXU’s HD-2 radio channel. Ah yes, HD radio… the Laserdisc of broadcasting.
