A computer consultant/developer by day and many nights (and 24/7 President of Macs Ventures Ltd. and Executive Director of Max Radio Society), Phil Kushnir has performed as a mobile music disc jockey for over 40 years. In addition, he has an extensive background in radio broadcasting including on-air work at CFRO-FM, CJIV-AM, CFBV-AM, CJXX-AM, CJOR-AM, CJJR-FM, CHRX-AM, CISQ-FM, CKNS-FM, CKJN-FM and Internet Radio stations LG73, Max Radio, New West Rock and Uptown Radio.
Phil operates LG73, and three other Internet Radio stations on behalf of Max Radio Society. LG73 is a popular Internet radio station named after a former Vancouver Top 40 giant (CKLG-AM 730), winner of the Live365 Best Pop Station Award in both 2004 and 2005 (the only two years the original Live365 had broadcaster awards). Additionally, Phil was awarded the 2005 Live365 Best On-air Personality Award. All that within a field of over 16,000 active stations on the Live365 service in 2005. In March 2013, on behalf of Max Radio Society, Phil split LG73 into two distinct Internet Radio Stations, creating the eclectic Max Radio and focussing LG73 on classic and contemporary hits.
LG73 and Max Radio are available in the iTunes Radio Tuner in the Top 40/Pop genre (LG73) and Eclectic genre (Max Radio). LG73, Max Radio and new 2017 additions New West Rock and Uptown Radio are featured stations in the StreamS Hi-fi Radio App for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Apple TVs running tvOS.
Phil is exceptionally gifted at reading a crowd and dynamically adjusting the music mix to consistently give people the best dance experience.
