Abel Sanchez was born in the Bronx, raised in Paterson, NJ. Since his childhood, listening to the radio and imitating his favorite DJ’s was his favorite pastime. Soon after being gifted turntables & a mixer, his passion for playing music had him DJing parties. Before long he was playing in clubs. But it wasn't the same as being on the radio. So Abel enrolled into The Connecticut School of Broadcasting; upon graduating, Abel got his start in New York radio.

In 2004 Abel was an A.I.R Award nominee for Mix-Show DJ of the Year.

In addition to his on-air talents, his imaging skills did not go unnoticed. His abilities caught the attention of Jarad Broadcasting (Now JVC) who recruited Abel as Creative Director of "The World Famous" WLIR. In 2008/2009 Abel was a Regis & Kelly Live’s Men of Radio Finalist.

This year, with the return of Alternative radio to the city, Abel didn’t hesitate at the opportunity to join New York’s New Alternative Station -- ALT 92.3!
