Fave Radio Host DARIA Tells of Her Teen Past!

DARIA ELIUK spins her personal stories on 101.5 THE BUZZ on a near daily basis. It was awesome to have her LIVE on the Back Fence stage telling her ‘That’s a Mouthful’ story! You can purchase a CD from CD Baby of Daria telling more stories, “THE BEST OF DARIA’S LOCAL ENTERTAINMENT GUIDES VOLUME I” (JUST CLICK HERE!). All net proceeds from the purchase of this CD go to benefit DOVE LEWIS, Portland’s only nonprofit 24-hour emergency and critical care animal hospital.  

And, we love a foxy and smart lady who is willing to divulge details such as the following for her introduction on stage: “I saved all my chicken pox scabs in a baby food jar.”
