DJ AMPM lives on music day and night

In the a.m., DJ AMPM-aka Alycia Ryan-works at Gramaphone Records as their hip-hop buyer. In the p.m., she spins everything from southern hip-hop to R&B and old-school soul music. Friday on "Eight Forty-Eight" she gave a sampling of her sound throughout the hour. At the end of the program, DJ AMPM down with host Alison Cuddy to talk about what gets her turntables spinning.
