Max Robinson


Max grew up in Hartford, Connecticut. Before his first words, he learned how to use the sound system, putting on his favorite, “Can’t Touch This,” by M.C. Hammer and dancing around the living room. With this in mind, his father began his musical education early with introductions to The Beatles, Beach Boys and Radiohead; then it was on to Sonic Youth, Pixies, The Flaming Lips and even Ella Fitzgerald (his mother’s doing). His life has been enveloped with exploration of new sounds from the ever expanding indie rock music scene. From Jack White’s latest guitar riff, to the Decemberist’s latest dirigible reference, Max lives and dies to make the perfect playlist for your listening pleasure.  

Top Three Songs or Artists (currently): Lord Huron (Ancient Names, Part 1), Andrew Bird (Roma Fade), Four Tet (You Are Loved)

Thursdays at 6 a.m. & 3 p.m.
