Past 83Music Featured Friends have generally focused on people doing amazing and creative things who also happen to have a love of great music.

As the morning show DJ for KLTW 95.1, the midday DJ for KQAK 105.7, and the afternoon DJ for The Peak 104.1, Robin has herself, three different outlets to connect listeners not only to music, but to all the wonderful events that happen in the area.
