Look out, you rock and rollers. I'm Loretta (that's Miss Loretta to you), a.k.a. The Big Punisher. My mission: to start your afternoon off right, keep from killing Hoebee, and enjoy the beauty of the Florida Keys. I was born in Brooklyn, NY, raised in Jersey, and checked out every state but Hawaii. My favorite movie is "Kingpin", I like travelling, laughing, working out, music(duh), hanging with my friends, movies, and driving my cab!(I'm a full time cab driver for Friendly Cab, part time radio personality) . I love my little dog "Scrunchy", and he loves treats!
It's been a bumpy road, a rollercoaster ride for sure, but experimenting with Bill Hoebee has enriched my life in countless ways, I can't think of any right now, but I'm sure it has. Imagine being locked in a padded room with your annoying brother with ADD for 4 hours a day, and you'll start to get the picture. We've laughed, we've cried, he's farted, I've complained, but sharing our off the wall perspective with each other, our revolving cast of characters, and our listeners is just plain
Since having discovered her island of misfit toys, Irene has been a 15 year resident of Key West. She traded supervising Teamsters in Cold New England to owning and running the two most outrageous bars in the Southernmost City.
A former model, her second day in the Conch Republic had Irene entering Fantasy Fest’s Homemade Bikini contest. A fortunate happenstance which would lead to a memorable nickname, her first radio gig and hosting the Official Fantasy Fest Video in 2000 and 2001. A lifelong nudist, both opportunities were tailored to her talents and created memorable moments on film and the airwaves.
Irene shares a diverse background which includes her literally riding shotgun for a repo company, competitively Polka Dancing and being the Director of a Children’s Charity. Her obsession with sparkly objects, battles with the dreaded earworm, and her Massachusetts bred sarcasm are legendary.
Her free time is filled with Zumba, Ebay and reality TV. Her ADD in HD often means she’s doing all 3 at the same time
