4Hoebee In The Afternoon Experiment
Weekdays 2 – 7 PM

Hi.  I’m Bill Hoebee and if nothing else, our show is ORIGINAL.  If you have nothing better to, do listen in the afternoon…it’s kind of like a train wreck for your ears and mind.  My hobbies include identifying shiny objects, short walks on the beach, drinking, and keeping my 14 year relationship with my imaginary girlfriend alive.  My favorite movies are “Spinal Tap” and any movie that begins with the words, “Ernest Goes to…”  I mostly eat grape ice-pops and pie.  I love my family, friends, watching t.v., and most of all…being a giant smart-ass for pay.

Call: 305-453-1031



The Bird


The top hat toting, titan of tom foolery, it’s the Bird! Born and raised in Key West, this pyromaniac loves hard drinkin, heavy metal and riding his motorcycle. He’s just another psycho that happened to wander into the studio one day but Hoebee and the rest of the crew liked him enough that he has stuck around for the past few years. Love him or hate him, he’ll be around for a while so I guess you’ll just have to get used to him.

Smoking Hot Babe!Mel T, the Mosh Pit Queen, is a Jersey Chic from South Florida. Formerly a Radio Personality in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties, she now resides and bartends in Key West. She was a Tour Manager for a record label in California and produced concerts and events in South Florida. Aside from Rockin’ the airwaves, Mel T also hosts Tattoo Conventions throughout Florida to raise funds for the Joe DiMaggio’s Children’s Hospital and many other foundations.


Irene and Hobee

image004Since having discovered her island of misfit toys, Irene has been a 15 year resident of Key West. She traded supervising Teamsters in Cold New England to owning and running the two most outrageous bars in the SouthernmostCity.

A former model, her second day in the ConchRepublic had Irene entering Fantasy Fest’s Homemade Bikini contest. A fortunate happenstance which would lead to a memorable nickname, her first radio gig and hosting the Official Fantasy Fest Video in 2000 and 2001.  A lifelong nudist, both opportunities were tailored to her talents and created memorable moments on film and the airwaves.

Irene shares a  diverse background which includes her literally riding shotgun for a repo company, competitively Polka Dancing and being the Director of a Children’s Charity.  Her obsession with sparkly objects, battles with the dreaded earworm, and her Massachusetts bred sarcasm are legendary.

Her free time is filled with Zumba, Ebay and reality TV. Her ADD in HD often means she’s doing all 3 at the same time

World famous, most collected living Artist, Wyland, the Artist of the Sea, drew a Mermaid outline and autographed it on Mel T's leg, on Friday Night at the Wyland Galleries in Key West. Then Mel T went to Delray Bch, on Saturday, where her boy Jeff Kozan, at Vatican Tattoo, laid in some ink to make this awesome Mermaid permanent.
