Johnny Kage and DJ Javi - 104.3 HIT FM Morning Mash
Dynamic duo DJ Javi and Johnny Kage, hosts of Hit FM’s Morning Mash, are the takers in What’s Up’s new Best Power Couple category. The pair has cultivated an on-and-off-air friendship that goes back more than 20 years, and that shines through as they banter back and forth every weekday morning from 6-10.
To get you through your morning coma, Kage and Javi dish on subjects like government cheese and Christmas Eve drive-bys, just to name a couple. They’re both from the area, a privilege that has allowed them to understand and explore the nuances of what it means to be an El Pasoan and connect with so many listeners.
The premise of their show is a refreshing departure from the politics, gloom and doom typical of many outlets. Their approach is lighter and often downright cringe-worthy.
“Why sugarcoat it? Let’s say what people really want to say but are afraid to,” Kage said.
