Who are our DJs/Hosts. Let us introduce them to you: The Incredible DJ Tall Ron
I grew up in a household where both my parents listened to a variety of music from a range of different eras. Around 13 years old, kidding around with a couple of friends, we threw a mock party for our hangout group (of course we were the DJ's). Borrowing records I grew up listening to from my parent's collections proved to be the magic spark that would get me seriously moving in an entertainment direction. Although the journey wasn't an instant success, it would take me several years before emergence and acceptance. Throughout the years it has afforded me various opportunities, and involvement in ventures that teach invaluable lessons, skills and put me in the presence of incredible people (some famous and some not as famous). It is a long way from 13 and today brings me back to humble beginnings and back to the idea that I could be your DJ, Entertainer and Host.

DJ Ronn Kay
Growing up I was one of those kids that liked comics. I started to collect almost every issue. That was something for me to spend my money on. Then realizing that there were other things to do with my time, I started to collect vinyl. It was the same as going to a comic book store, but I needed something to play the vinyl on. We had an old record player that my mother used to listen to her music. Then I realized why not get my own player. There were stores selling turntables so l bought one. I went to a block party and saw where the guys were using two turn tables and I said I can do that. I sold my comic book collection and I put the turntables on layaway. My first party you can say was playing for my family with the records we had in the house and the rest was history which lead to crates and crates of vinyl.

FRNDS VS FRNDS
Born and raised in Asbury Park, New Jersey, I used to always spot melodies and samples from songs since I had the ability to talk. This had my parents astonished on how I could name old songs like "Poppa was a rolling stone" when I only heard it once before.
I began experimenting with music technology shortly after I graduated from the graphic design program in Wall Communications High School. I started with the program Garage Band and continued to gain interest making myself proficient enough to want to attend Bloomfield College as a Creative Arts & Technology Major. I began to gain local exposure by attending industry events in New York and collaborating with many studios like Platinum Recording Studio and DFG. I also gained respect among colleagues through conducting free projects. When terms didn’t meet my standards financially in the music industry, I decided to expand my knowledge and experience by taking on Audio Visual Technician jobs. Throughout this experience, I would find myself doing many tasks from stagehand, to running cables, to hanging TVs, to soldering, and even welding steel.
Maturing from just a Music Producer/Audio Engineer, I now own my own Music Studio. Approaching every project with a calm and personable demeanor, I give artists of all genres stability by developing their projects with detailed idea exchanging. I am always looking to collaborate and form partnerships with others.
Jerard “JT” Tyler
Yo its ya boy JT founding member of FrndsvsFrnds. I fell in love with the orange sphere at an early age. Played the game of basketball at all different levels and still love the game till this day. When playing hoop came to an end for me I found a new passion of talking/debating about the game that played a big part in my life.
My introduction to basketball and sneaker culture originated in the early 90s with the emergence of Shaquille O'Neal. Shaq was a juggernaut and I mimicked him constantly on my Nerf Hoop or outside on anything I could hang on. My aunt, a teenager when I was born, used to buy me a pair of sneakers everytime she bought some for herself. It didn't take long for me to make the connection between sports and footwear.
As long as I've watched I have always talked trash, as joking and banter between friends tends to strengthen bonds between young men. I met my co-hosts early on in life and have always carried on conversations about all matters of life with them, although none more empassioned then when we talk about sports. Our shared love for the New York Knicks and our penchant for recreational disagreement lead me to join my friends in creating the Frnds vs Frnds Podcast. It is my pleasure to disagree with you! Thanks for listening!

Talk Show Host/Podcaster Deb LaMotta
I started my wedding officiant business 10+ years ago. I’ve recently moved to Delaware where I found myself redesigning my wedding website. While working on the wedding vendor page, I was talking to many women-owned wedding businesses and they were all sharing their story of how they got started and what the journey had been like for them. I decided that I wanted to share those stories and I started my Podcast Series, Women Entrepreneurs Spotlight. Soon after I started the Podcast Series, a friend of mine was DJing on an Online Radio Network and I got a bug to try my hand at sharing my podcast series on the radio and the rest is history.
