I got my unique interview style after years of screaming into the camera & at the fans in the Professional Wrestling game! I got my name from TV Mogul Merv Griffin! The REST as they say, is history!! CURRENTLY, I host SCORCH & THE MORNING X (with Scorch & T-RI), doing a mixture of talk & rock, at a KILLER Rock Station, WECL-FM (929 THE X)
Along the way, I ended up with a GREAT career in PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING, as my “Alter Ego” BAD GUY Manager, Vito Carlucci, trained by the Legendary Killer Kowalski, losing my “WWF” Contract by crushingmy kneecap, 2 weeks before my debut!!!
SOMEWHERE IN THERE, while on my 2nd run at ROCK 101, ….SCORCH’S PFG-TV became a thing, on CBS, FOX, and THE CW in New England, NY, and So.Cal.!! THEN, CAME SYNDICATION!!!! The “Scorch, Mikey, & Russ” show was born, debuting on 23 stations from Coast to Coast, including 98 ROCK in Baltimore, and Q 95 in Indianapolis!
When Our parent company closed it’s doors (a story for over a beer sometime!!), I moved to LA, & had an acting career, playing “Bad Guys” for DISNEY; shows on A & E, Lifetime, and TNT, & others! My big break came when I played a founding member of the Z Brotherhood, on the 3 part season finale of “Major Crimes”, the award winning show on TNT! You’ll also see me featured on many episode of Deep Undercover!! (SEE VIDEO PAGE & GALLERY)!!
I was in Suicide Squad, Sandy Wexler, Hold On, Tales From The Cribs, Railway Spine, & Money Shot!! Hippo Campus’s “Boyish”; Katie Perry’s “Swish Swish”; Twenty One Pilots “Heathens”: Lindsay Sterling’s “The Arena”: and Andy Grammer’s “Give Love”. (SEE VIDEO PAGE& GALLERY)
