Hi, I’m Zach Martin, and I am proud to be your host for Ultimate Classic Rock. I’m married with one teenage daughter and reside in North New Jersey. Hobbies other than rocking the airways…I don't enjoy the outdoors or horseback riding. However I do love Classic Rock, NASCAR, New Country, Oldies and Mozart. Mozart is supposedly good for the brain, but so far, it hasn't helped. I am a New York Giants fan - go Giants! I graduated from St. John's University with a couple of Master's Degrees, and continue to try and learn new things. I am a descendant of Zachary Taylor, the 12th President of the United States, and a few other characters including Adam Fisher, who fought in the American Revolution. I even have relatives who fought on both sides of the Civil War. No wonder why we always fight at family get-togethers! I have had the pleasure of interviewing Paul McCartney, Ringo, Yoko, Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and numerous other legends. More importantly, I have been able to make friends with many listeners over the years, because after all, they are the most important VIP's in the room.
