On Monday, February 14, the City of Palm Springs Human Rights Commission presented KGAY 106.5’s own Vincent Corrales (aka DJ Galaxy, host of the Retro Lunch show), with their Community Service Award. Individuals and organizations who receive this award are recognized for their outstanding contributions promoting and protecting human rights, social progress, better standards of life, and equality for all individuals.
Vincent Corrales is recognized for his belief and sincerity in serving others. He is a warrior for humanity and serves the community in selfless and loving ways. During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Vincent publicly offered to run errands and shop for groceries for those 60 years or older confined to their home due to having a compromised immune system or other conditions that prevented them from being in public. His compassion drives him to prepare meals for the area homeless regularly. Vincent is a testament to the impact one individual can have on the unsheltered, hungry, and those in need. He has prepared hundreds of traditional Thanksgiving meals for families who otherwise would go without on Thanksgiving. Vincent is credited for improving the quality of life in Palm Springs, one life at a time. He also volunteers for various organizations and events, and he is a regular rider and fundraiser for AIDS Lifecycle.
On Wednesday, February 16, friends and fans of DJ Galaxy gathered at Trunks Bar in Cathedral City to celebrate his award. In addition, Brad Fuhr of KGAY 106.5 and Gay Desert Guide presented DJ Galaxy with his “Best of Coachella Valley” award, recently voted in by the readers of Coachella Valley Independent. KGAY Morning Show host John Taylor received his runner-up award for Best Local Radio Personality.
