Guy in the Sky

EMAIL

My radio name is Guy in the Sky.  I got that name from my group.  They thought that was appropriate because as a general rule I’m a pretty up kind of guy.  

I have always been into music.  When I was a kid my Mom worked at a Country music radio station so she used to bring me 45’s.  By the time I was six I had stacks of music.  When I was 8 my Uncle Mike taught me how to wire a radio to a cassette recorder and make my own tapes.  Music has always been a driving force in my life.  Music has also gotten me through the hardest times of my life. Ever since I can remember I have wanted to be a d.j.  I used d.j. at a club in the 80’s in Korea.  Then after that I was just a fan.  I later got involved in community radio in Tucson, Arizona in about 2004 as a volunteer.  

I moved to Grand Junction in 2010 and became a volunteer for KAFM.  In February 2013 I worked on the new studio with Peter Trosclair.  He suggested I become a programmer.  Well, I took the class, got qualified, and was on air within a month subbing for other programmers.  Before I knew it I became a regular programmer for Mountain Bound every other Saturday and am now on every week from 6:00-9:00 a.m.

A few words about my show.  I get up every Saturday at 3:30 a.m. and by 6 a.m. I am playing cutting edge bluegrass, folk, Americana, Blues and World music.  Almost all the music I play is brand spanking new!  I also like old nuggets like Bessie Smith’s 1931 cut “Need a Little Sugar in My Bowl” or “Can’t  Roller Skate in a Buffalo Herd” by Roger Miller in 1962.  So, give a listen.  I hope you like it.  I always welcome your phone calls.  

I want to thank all the people who helped me get here.  I hope I haven’t left anyone out.  Peter Trosclair, Tamara Hardesty, Coach (especially), Ol’ Dog, The Beat Junky, Lance, Joe, and a very special “thank you” to my girl Jazzy Jill.
