Zeke Piestrup worked his way up from the bottom at KROQ. When I worked there, he was a promotions assistant. He would drive the van to events, hang banners and hand out prizes. He later got an on-air shift, focusing on local music.
Like several other KROQ deejays in the 1990s, Zeke got hired by MTV Networks. He had a show on VH-1. I didn’t keep track of where he went next. I now see that he’s had a very successful career in the music industry.
I’m a fan of Mental Floss. I read their tweets daily and often click through to read the article they are promoting. One day last week, I saw Zeke’s name in one of their tweets. I also recognized the name of the late Harold Camping. KROQ deejays Kevin & Bean used to call Camping regularly as a morning show bit.
