You know that 80's song by the Belle Stars, "IKO IKO" featured in Rain Man & Mission Impossible 2, well that's how you pronounce my name Aiko, not spelt the same but it sounds the same. Now, try not to sing that song for the rest of the day! HA!
I've been apart of the K-Lite family since 2002. Started on air weekends, then onto producing Hamilton's #1 morning show, the "Sunni and Hayes" morning show. From there KLite’s music director, promotions director and now best of all my job has me sitting behind the mic in the K-Lite Studio and I love love love it! Hope you can tune in weekday afternoons 3-7pm, it’s Aiko on your Drive home!
