Craig Snyder (born December 25, 1964) is a retired American boxer. Born in Youngstown, Ohio, Snyder grew up in the Youngstown suburb of Canfield. He started boxing in 1978 and throughout a seven-year amateur career amassed a record of 46 wins and 8 losses, including three Youngstown Golden Gloves titles and one state ABF title. In June 1985 he turned professional and went on to earn a record of 22 wins, 8 losses with 13 knockouts.
My first interactions with tastemakers and influencers included condescending record clerks questioning my album purchases and radio DJ’s challenging me to have better taste. I found the folks who had overlapping taste in music and wanted to know what they listened to. I still believe that music discovery is best fueled by trusted tastemakers - radio DJs, your music geek friends, playlisters - who tell everyone they know about an artist they love. After that battle of the bands, WOXY started playing them. To me, they were local celebrities. In my mind, they had made it. But they had bigger aspirations. I wanted to be part of their journey. In fact, watching their journey made me want to be part of the music business. My first official gig in the music industry was as a 12 Rods street team member, which I landed by calling a phone number taped to the bulletin board in the local record shop.
