Banana Joe® Montione has been a top-rated personality and program director/consultant at great radio stations, groups & networks across the USA. in 1991 Gannett Radio President asked KIIS-FM talent Banana Joe to come up with something for their lowest rated day-part of the week, Sunday 5-10 pm. Joe came back with the Banana Joe Flashback Show- playing songs as far back as the 70s -80s - a bold move for current-based KIIS-FM, but with Joe's high energy engaging delivery, and his knowledge of the music backstory, and completely programmed by Banana Joe and the listeners. Within 6 months it was the #1 day-part of the week for 18-49 and 25-54 persons in Los Angeles! Now after establishing Flashback Top 40 Radio in 2005 as one of the first Independent Pure Play Internet radio stations, he's taking that fun- foreground style of radio to local stations across the USA, as FT40 becomes one of the first pure play music formats to migrate from Internet-only back to terrestrial radio from the online world. The national syndication includes continuation of the Internet presence, both live from Hollywood and with custom-built local inserts from the affiliate markets.
