Welcome to Radio Feedback, Radio.com’s weekly feature where we ask artists to wax nostalgic on the first time they heard themselves on the radio.

Jared Leto has always thought the radio was the best way to discover new music.

“Radio’s pervasive,” he told Radio.com. “You’re not always in control. You can be in a friend’s car. You can be in a taxi. You can be walking by a store or you can be in a lobby somewhere and you can hear something new.”

Or you could be sitting in a parking lot at a Home Depot. That’s where the guys of Thirty Seconds To Mars were when they heard themselves on the radio for the very first time.

“I remember being in Florida,” Leto said.

“Wasn’t it Jacksonville?” drummer (and Jared’s brother), Shannon Leto asked.

The band was making a stop on their way to rehearsal and they heard “Attack” off their 2005 album, A Beautiful Lie, on the radio.
