Doug Ferrel

Rock n' Roll Radio and The Edge Host

Captain Doug delights in playing the role of reprobate, and does so with great conviction.  Having nothing better to do, he spends his time volunteering as a guest DJ at 91.7 FM WXPR, Rhinelander, Wisconsin where, much like a drug dealer or religious fanatic, he hawks his horrible taste in music upon the unsuspecting public.  He unwittingly fancies himself a music aficionado when in reality he is an elitist music snob spinning records to which no sane person would ever listen.  His babbling conversations will remind you of that Chuck Klosterman wannabe at the party who you cannot seem to detach yourself from as he expounds upon the under-rated guitar playing qualities of Vivian Campbell.  Meanwhile, you are internally regretting your decision to wear your Dio T-shirt that night.  Much like your deluded drunken uncle, he rants constantly about the life and death importance of the mere consequential and trivial.  Or, to reference the Bowling For Soup anthem, he has not been “cool” since 1985, but he’s strangely satisfied with this truth because in his illogical state he still thinks that it is 1985.
