What would you get if you tossed some of the biggest ALT songs into a blender and served them up on a platter of the sickest turntable skills? It’s Skratch N Sniff, now heard Saturday nights from 10pm-Midnight on ALT 995.
Somehow Skratch and Sniff radio hosts DJ Mike Czech and Malcolm have managed to blend together tons of musical elements into one of the most exciting radio shows you’ll hear today. Since its debut in 2003 on a local station in San Diego, the Skratch N Sniff radio program has taken terrestrial radio by storm.
Conceived by on-air host Malcolm and programmed by DJ Mike Czech, the program takes some of the biggest ALT rock songs and blends them together to make an unbelievable mix show that fans of both genres are tuning into in droves. The show has grown from a local San Diego radio show into a smash radio success with syndication to over 60 affiliates throughout the US.
“Our success is also a result of doing something that has been long forgotten; playing great music and not worrying if it fits into a certain format. You need a great party mixtape-style show that brings all kinds of music lovers together”, says DJ Mike Czech. “Not that many people listen to only one kind of music, and we blend everything from classic rock to modern metal, from 80’s electro to old school hip-hop. We offer something that regular radio has been missing; we’re unpredictable”. Malcolm sums up the show perfectly by saying, “We’re not out to break any records, we’re just out to manipulate them.”
