From a young age, Thigpen had a deep fascination with meteorology. While his peers engaged in typical childhood activities, Thigpen was checking temperatures and rainfall throughout the year, driven by his genuine interest in weather phenomena. “I just did it because it was fun and I found the weather fascinating,” he recalled.

But Thigpen’s interests extended beyond weather; he also had a passion for radio. Often, he would imagine having his radio station, using a walkie-talkie positioned between two bricks to keep the “talk” button engaged. He would then ride his bicycle around, testing the range of his makeshift station while honing his DJ skills.
