About the Show


I was into music early, studying piano, and performing an original song titled “If I were President” to my third-grade class. I went on to record and tour with John Cale (Velvet Underground), Sparks, and The Call. I was always interested in radio as it was the life blood of the music business back in those days. I went to most of the radio interviews with the lead singer of The Call, Michael Been, and got a good look at the magic of radio. Naturally, at age 60, when Lazlo asked if I wanted to be a DJ on Jive Radio (KJIV 96.5FM Madras, OR), I said “yes.” I am finding it to be every bit as fun and exciting as I thought it might be. I am trying to bring as much community service to my show as I can, including playing a lot of local and regional artists, talking about their shows, and doing the Live Jive Gig Report every day. I’ve also got a friend in New Orleans who is feeding me current artists from The Big Easy. I am calling the segment “New New Orleans Jive.” All of this fits nicely with the general Jive Radio playlist. I hope you will join me on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9 to Noon for The Live Jive Show with DJ Jim.

    Love the show, but no way to get all of the song tittles. Can you tell me what “new grassy” instrumental played about 9:45, on Friday morning? If I had to guess, it was Chris Thile.

      Dave,

      Suggest using an app called, Shazam for smart phones that can identify songs by algorithm. Looking at the log, I think that was Dave Grisman Quintet, “Dawgnation”. Glad you like the music! Thanks, GM John.
