At the beginning of April, the coronavirus dealt a blow to the Bay Area’s FM dial. Aaron Axelsen, the longtime on-air personality and music director for Alt 105, became a casualty in a wave of layoffs and cutbacks made by the station’s parent company, Entercom.
Axelsen had been a part of the station for 23 years and was known for hosting the new- and local-music program Soundcheck as well as the late-night electronic show, Subsonic. He is also the founder and driving force behind the weekly Popscene party at the Rickshaw Stop.
