Johnny J has been the host of The BIG ROCK since its beginning in 2016.
A true fan of real rock music. He began recording songs off the radio at a young age. Since the purchase of his first cassette, Billy Joel’s “Glass Houses”, he has collected thousands of records, cassettes, CD’s & mp3’s over the years.
Born, raised and lives in Erie, Pennsylvania. Johnny is married, has three kids and two dogs. He is a huge hockey and baseball fan. You used to find him bothering his family & neighbors with his guitar or drums. Now you will probably find him on any of the local lakes or ponds fishing or just relaxing on his boat!
