Sean Dillon


Who am I? I’m the person that my kids look up to, my wife loves, my friends laugh with and my enemies dread.

I came to Lubbock back in 1992 to go to Texas Tech and bounced from English to Business to Mass Communications. I found KTXT one morning at 2 A.M. due to a floor mate and I was hooked again. I made a stop at KLLL for a couple of years but I’ve been at Rock 101.1 since we kicked it open November of 1999 . I find the city of Lubbock and the surrounding area incredible. I’ve lived in New York City and in a city so small it was a square mile. I love this area because of the people.  We work hard, play hard and ROCK HARD!

Favorite band/artist: Dire Straits / Mark Knopfler. I also love Stevie Ray Vaughn because of his great guitar work.

Favorite Sport: College football followed by baseball.

What would your last meal be? Steak and potatoes.
Favorite experience at Rock 101.1 ?  When winners come in to pick up their prizes. I love going out and shaking the hands of our winners / listeners.

What is your most memorable experience in Radio?: I work with the Children’s Miracle Network Radiothon and we have won several awards for our charity work.  It’s all about making others life better that makes me happy!

What has been your greatest life experience?: The birth of my son and daughter. No doubt about it.

If you could take a vacation anywhere in the world. Where would you go?: I need some time to relax on the beach in Maui! No phone, no newspaper, just my wife and I isolated from the world.

Catch Sean weekdays from 10a – 2p and whenever he is out and about around the Hub City.
