The Hosts

Matt Pelishek

Matt Pelishek

Program Director for Life FM, and co-host of the Afternoon Joy Ride

Matt graduated from Northwestern College and Radio in St. Paul, Minnesota with a degree in radio broadcasting in 2006, however he has been involved in radio since 2000.  Matt has 3 daughters, but he also holds a 2nd degree black belt.  These two things are not unrelated.  God have mercy on the poor soul who first asks to date one of his precious girls.  Matt also loves all things geeky, especially Star Wars, old kung fu films, and cartoons from the 80’s.  Matt says that ‘everyday I’m learning what it means to love all people.  The ability to speak to men and women, kids and grandparents, Christians and skeptics, democrats and republicans every day is an absolute honor.”

Favorite Christian band/artist of all time:  DC Talk

Something I love that no one else does: Spicy pork rinds, but I only eat them in secret, and in the dark.

Favorite movie quote:  “I Know.”  – Han Solo

What food will be served in heaven:  Tacos, pizza, and taco pizza.  Possibly pizza tacos.

Favorite Bible verse: Galations 1:10 “So who am I trying to please, man or God?  If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.”

Aaron Perlman

Aaron Perlman

Co-Host of the Afternoon Joy Ride

Aaron is not only one of the most well known media personalities in Bakersfield, he is also one of the busiest.  Aaron is your friendly neighborhood weatherman each morning on FOX & CBS in Bakersfield, as well as on the noon show.  In addition to hosting with Matt, he is also the stations music director.  While Aaron does a lot of hiking and running, if given the choice, he would likely spend his days watching cartoons and eating chocolate pudding on the couch.  Aaron also loves Dr. Who, and old classic movies.

Favorite Christian band/artist of all time: DC Talk / The Kry / Needtobreathe

Something I love that no one else does: Carman

Favorite movie quote: “I’ve got neon lights on mine.” (Arsenic and Old Lace; 1944; quote by Cary Grant)

What food will be served in heaven: In-N-Out Burger

Favorite Bible verse: Ephesians 4:1 “ I, therefore, the Prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the vocation where-with you have been called.”
