Sunday Driving with Full Throttle County and KiiM-FM 99.5's Max!

Clever, Idealistic, and Bold--Meet Max from the “Max, Shannon and Porkchop” morning show at Tucson’s KiiM-FM 99.5. Without a doubt Max is one of the most interesting and talented people I have ever met or heard in radio. No one captures and engages an audience quite like him. The ability to tell stories that you can actually see, and feel like your best friend is telling them to you, is a gift that he offer's to listeners. His anecdotes and personable nature have centered him as a foundation at KiiM-FM’s Morning Show for double digit years!  If you're having fun in the morning, chances are you are listening to Max, Shannon and Porkchop on KiiM-FM 99.5!
