Well... HOWDY, amigos! My name is Del Villarreal and I'm a rockabilly/roots rock DJ from the Metro Detroit, MI area. I've been a professional FM broadcaster since 1994, producing and hosting "Go Kat, GO! The Rock-A-Billy Show!" on WCBN, 88.3 FM and also here on MOTORBILLY RADIO (you can hear both weekly radio programs here on MOTORBILLY). I'm very fortunate in that I'm asked to appear as a DJ and MC at the annual VIVA LAS VEGAS ROCKABILLY WEEKENDER, the ROCKABILLY RAVE in the UK, the INDY ROAD ROCKET RUMBLE and the NEW ENGLAND SHAKE-UP festivals. You can also find me at many hot rod & kustom kulture events around the world, such as SINS OF STEEL, the HOT ROD HAYRIDE, the VIVA LAS VEGAS CAR SHOW and also the INDY ROAD ROCKET RUMBLE car shows. I write music reviews for CAR KULTURE DeLUXE and OL' SKOOL RODS magazines and also vinyl record music reviews for ROCKABILLY DeLUXE magazine. I sincerely hope that you'll enjoy MOTORBILLY RADIO, discover some new rockin' acts and hear some of your vintage favorites. PLEASE, drop me a line anytime to say 'Howdy!' or to make a musical request... find me (and please LIKE Motorbilly Radio and Go Kat, GO! The Rock-A-Billy Show! ) on FaceBook on Twitter! THANK YOU for listening!!!
