A Little Bit About Joey Prout


Joey & Cousin Brucie


Joey is a native of The Jersey Shore, and was bitten by the radio bug at the young age of five. Joey's broadcasting inspiration stemmed from the legendary days of top 40 radio stations in New York City. Joey's radio idol is The Legendary "Cousin" Brucie Morrow WABC-AM, WCBS-FM, and currently SiriusXM Satellite Radio.

Joey continued to work on his ultimate radio goal by doing personal broadcasts for family and friends while growing up, and also hosting many sock hops and parties. He began his internet radio career in December 2000, shortly before graduating from the Connecticut School of Broadcasting in Hasbrouck Heights, NJ, when he started his own personal station on Live 365, which has since gone off the air to devote his expertise, talent, and time to producing his Sock Hop Soda Shoppe

Joey joined Cruisin Oldies Radio in June 2005 airing his World Famous and very popular Sock Hop Soda Shoppe exclusively on COR, then started syndicating the show to many fine stations worldwide in 2006.  Joey strives to present Fun, Entertaining, and Informative shows each and every week.

He vows to continue playing this great music for all his listeners for many years to come, and Always welcomes listener e-mails at joeyprout@sockhopsodashoppe.com .
