Justin AKA SpyderMonkey

Justin Mack is the owner and producer of “SpyderMonkey Shanty Radio” as well as the host of “The Roaring Melody”.  His deep passion for pirates, folk ballads, maritime, work songs, and music history was a big contributing factor to the creation of the Internet radio which was years in the making before its launch on March 6, 2018.

Today the station plays over 3,000 songs from over 350 artists and a huge backlog is on the way.

Besides radio production, Justin has experience in the world of theater, film, video editing, production planning,  scheduling, and more.

  Other Hobbies include:

  • Gaming: Classically trained gamer from the 80s who enjoys a great structured game and/or story mainly in the genres of adventure, horror, strategy, and RPGs. He started sharing his adventures on Twitch in late 2020 to share his experience with family and friends.  These streams are nautical themed with a variety of games and the attempt to sing sea songs and shanties while dressed like a pirate.

  • Scenes & Prop Building: Setting the scene is a fun challenge for any themed event. Every Halloween (and sometimes other events) he builds scenes and props to set the mood for a thrilling good time.

    • Instagram: *Will be Posted up after Halloween 2023*

  • Film/Videography: Justin has had an interest in film since a child making short films and stop-motion projects. Throughout high school and college, he continued working on creating short films, and music videos. In his college years, he entered his school’s film festival and won 1st place for “Best Music Video”.  After college, he started doing videography for weddings and other events.
