The Working Musician as on-Air Host

Apr 25, 2014

KUVO/KVJZ is fortunate to have several volunteer on-air hosts who make their living as professional musicians.   These performers worked years developing a music product suitable to the tastes of demanding listeners. The performer’s peers are demanding of even higher standards, a level of respect to be met if the musician is to work in collaboration with these peers. The performing artist must learn to recognize quality in their own work; and,staying abreast of the innovative work of others enables the musician to identify the changes occurring in the larger art collective.

This is the second in a series featuring interviews with the KUVO 89.3 FM on-air hosts who also work as musicians—serving two roles as album players and bandstand players. They step up to two mics. In this series we are discussing on-air hosting to which these deejays bring a professional musician’s perspective.
