Franklin was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, but always loved coffee milk and so has been a Rhode Islander for many years. His friends describe him as "wise" and "what? who are you??" When not DJing, Franklin listens to music you've probably never heard of, such as Cher and Wham!. Every day, he wakes up hoping that the Springfield Spirit will be reinstated to the National Women's Basketball league. He has been doing this since 2004.
