Hello! My name is AprilAnn and I am absolutely stoked to be on the list of magnificent people on this bio page as one of 96x’s on air talents! I am from all over the place and have always been quite the gypsy as far as traveling goes but when I stepped foot in this town and joined this station, I knew it was love! I’m a professional model, an actress, a certified rescue diver, an animal lover (just ask my 5 lizards, 2 snakes, dog or rabbit), and big fan of a good life challenge and I’m looking forward to sharing a plethora of stories and darn good music with you!
Q&A w/ AprilAnn
Birth date: 8/13/89
Hometown: I’m from just about everywhere but grew up mostly on a little island in Florida called Fernandina Beach.
Favorite Song Of All Time: The Gorillaz “Dirty Harry”
Favorite Song Right Now: The Gorillaz “Dirty Harry”
Favorite Band Right Now: The Gorillaz and Alt J
Favorite Band Of All Time: The Gorillaz
Favorite Album: “Demon Days”
If I Could Only Listen To 10 Songs For The Rest Of My Life It Would Be: Tom Jones’ What’s New Pussycat all ten times because of that dip in the middle that makes you think it’s over and then it pretty much plays again even though it’s considered the same song so really I’d be getting what sounds like 20 songs all wrapped up into 10.
Pets: lizards, snakes, a dog, a cat, a rabbit, you name it, Ive adopted it into my family… and weirdly enough, all my animals get along.
Hobbies: I really am a huge fan of anything creative and/or that is a workout. I have a newfound love of sewing that I’ve been using to make dresses and outfits for my photo shoots (with my photography and my modeling) and I love yoga, aerial yoga, any kind of sports, boating, scuba diving, etc. Hobbies are my favorite and I love learning new things so this list will never stop growing. Lol.
Hidden Talent: I can actually sing, but only my shower knows about it because I just can’t help myself where the acoustics are pristine. 😊
Favorite Sports Team: Da Bears 🐻
Favorite Superhero: Probably the first thing you’ll know about me if you know me, it’s very obviously Ninja Turtle Michelangelo.
Favorite Cartoon: Um, someone needs to tell me why Dexter’s Lab and Ed, Ed, and Eddy are not still a thing. 😭
My Role Model Is: Madeline Kahn, no one will ever be as offensive and classy all at the same time to me. #goals ❤
Favorite Concert: I’ve had the amazing opportunity to see tons of fantastic concerts over the years and tons of them popped into my head when this question arose but I’d have to say my all time favorite concert that I’ve been to would have to be The Eagles. They were my step dad’s favorite band other than well, Elvis who unfortunately I couldn’t have gone to see, but whereas they aren’t my favorite band, they are extremely talented and they were all together completely filling an arena with mostly a capella music for this show that was also a present from my sister whom I hadn’t seen in two years. Between the nostalgia, the talent and the company, it will be a hard one to beat.
Favorite TV Show: Storywise, Stranger Things definitely takes the cake with Game of Thrones coming in at a very close second. Visual wise, Riverdale quickly impressed and inspired me creatively.
My Happy Place Is: Absolutely the gym. Everywhere else seems like much more of a happy place after I get to hang out there for a while. 😊
Favorite Word: mediocre! Just thanks to Mad Max. I think it’s fun to yell at random people as if they were trying really hard to be the best at doing every day things.
My Best Halloween Costume was: A banana. Because it also became like an every day costume, not just for me, but for my whole household. When I lived in St. Augustine, FL, a ghost tour went right in front of my house so we would time it and every day, whoever was home at the time would throw on the banana costume and run out into the front yard to dance and add some fabulous banana dancing to their scary tours. We really just wanted the people to get the most for their money.
The Place I Really Want To Visit: Bora Bora so I can stay in that tiki hotel where you can see the fish through the floor. 😍
The One Thing That Would Surprise People About Me Is: I lived in a treehouse in a travelers hostel for 7 months and it’s one of the places I’ve felt most at home. ❤
If I Could Only Eat One Meal For The Rest Of My Life It Would Be: Broccoli. Just broccoli. I absolutely love broccoli more than any normal person should. One time I found a family size bag of broccoli for $2.14 and I swear I was more excited than the day I got my first car.
If I Hit The Lottery I Would: Open a center for homeless animals that’s full of amusement park rides and classes with animals, like yoga with goats and puppies, to bring people in to have fun and meet new friends to love on and take home to be part of their families.
I Can’t Get Enough Of: LIZARDS! I love love love my miniature dinosaurs!
I Went Into Radio Because: I love making people smile and spreading good news, music and jokes. There’s a lot of negativity in our world and I love being given the chance to spread some smiles into the midst of it.
If I Could Invite 3 People, Dead Or Alive, To A Dinner Party It Would Be: Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcom because, well chest hair of course, Jeff Goldblum as Alistair Hennessy in Life Aquatic and lastly, Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster in Thor, just because I’d like to see how they all get along… even though for some reason I have a feeling it would be positively splendidly.
