ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS FROM LISTENERS AND MY FELLOW B101.5 PERSONALITIES (THIS SHOULD BE INTERESTING)…
Favorite sports teams? Don’t really watch sports but if I did it would be the Yankees for Baseball, and the Rangers for Hockey
What do you like to do when you’re not working? My life is music so I engulf myself in my studio and just let those creative juices flow and then when I REALLY want to relax, I just take a trip somewhere or be with my family and close friends.
What has been your most interesting listener interaction? Oh man, there are so many over the years but one that stands out is a lady who was so star struck after she met me, she literally cried and wouldn’t stop hugging me. I was very flattered to say the least. When I told her that she was becoming my favorite listener, she literally got so excited she practically pee’d herself… poor thing.
As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? A Fireman, a guy who played with lights and a DJ on the radio… no, really… so I was a videographer many years ago for a fire company, I’ve become a lighting technician and design and do many light and laser shows for the past 25 years as well as have had a very successful 33 year radio career (as of 2021) thus far…

Since 1988, Bill Carroll has been entertaining the masses with being a Premier Radio DJ in New York, a KJ, a professional Emcee, even did a stint being a Pro VJ and he has entertained with the best in the industry as well as held number one rated shows in various markets!
In 1992 Bill worked at an all Seventies Station in Poughkeepsie New York doing middays and a specialty show on Friday Nights called "Friday Night Fever". He quickly became dubbed as "The Boogie-Man" playing the best of the 70's and then management changed gears with the format changing it to a Hot AC station (like a soft Top 40) but because the Friday night show was such a huge success and very popular, they allowed him to keep the show but he switched it up a bit and added the 80's to this highly listened to show!
Tune in to B101.5 from 7pm til Midnight for Bills Nightly Hot AC Show on terrestrial radio in Central Virginia or Saturday Nights for the Dance Party from 8p til Midnight or online at https://player.amperwave.net/2497.
