Now: Jim says (2/05), "I do freelance voice-overs and training films. I finally decided what I wanted to be when I grew up and realized that I didn't want to leave my native state of California and become a DJ/Gypsy. I live in Riverside, CA and have recently adopted a son. I teach college communications classes and am a resource teacher at a medium sized private elementary school." He remembers, "When I was a lot younger, I worked at 3 stations at the same time, and was carrying a full load at the university. The only way that I kept my sanity was to carry several 3X5 cards in my shirt pocket so that if I 'lost it' and was too busy trying to study, announce, run a board, write news copy, and answer the phone ... My absolute worst fear was to say the wrong air name or the wrong call letters. I did a news shift 6-11:15A (canned the noon report) @KACE Riverside, drove to college CSULB 12:30-6P, and then did a 7-Midnight at a live DJ rock/with 2 hours of taped programs(study time)@KREL Corona. And on the week-ends I did three shifts at an oldies station, KWIZ Santa Ana. I did get the best grades of my life! Almost a 4.0."

Really enjoy the lifestyle in Southern Oregon ... but as most small market folk know, we don't come to small towns to 'die'; I work harder now than I ever did in the majors (and I thought I was sooooooooo overworked back then, too! ;-) Lovely memories of being so poor at KIOT in Barstow, CA back in 1980 that when the tower lights burned out, I volunteered to climb the towers and replace them ... even though I was afraid of heights; hey, $50 bucks a tower tax-free was big money to a starving newbie radio dumbass at the time! Of course, the owner tried to convince me that he meant $50 for both towers, rather than $50 PER tower; some things never change, do they?"

Fortunately, the receptionist stopped me before any damage was done!"
