Bryan Jester

Bryan's broadcasting career began back when DJs still played 45's on the radio. He's studied acting and theater extensively, been a live nightclub DJ and performer, narrated audio-books, and spent 17 years as a writer and voice actor for the Radio Disney Network. Bryan has two passions that fit together perfectly: Classic (Mopar) cars and music on the radio. Windows rolled down and music blasting on the radio is how Bryan likes to go through life. When he's not at a car show or listening to music, his interests follow family, baseball, college football, and all things funny. Bryan knows from firsthand experience that he's bigger than Mr. T and smaller than Gene Simmons. Also odd, but true, Bryan was once mistaken for a wax figure at Madame Tussaud's in London.

Jay Coffey

Jay's been Rockin' and Rollin' for decades, beginning as a bass player in San Francisco Bay Area bands. His radio career begin at a small station in Modesto, and after four years moving around Central California, he wound up playing the hits in Los Angeles for over 28 years. A lifelong lover of Golden retrievers, he acquired a tolerance for miniature Schnauzers thanks to his wife Janet who’s been afflicted with Schnauzer-itis since her childhood on Long Island. Jay is dedicated to making radio fun and informative for his listeners.

John Summers

John's 30+ radio career has taken him all across the country in some of the biggest markets. His love of music as a musician has also done the same playing guitar in his own rock band along with work as a session musician for other great artists. When John's not rockin' on the stage or entertaining us on the radio he's hitting the hills off-road on his mountain bike or motorcycle, or buried in his music room going through his huge collection of LPs. He also loves a great novel and never misses the latest blockbuster movie.

Keith Stephens

Keith Stephens grew up in New England, but escaped the cold to graduate from Arizona State where he started his radio career. When he's not on the radio, he's a true soccer dad with two daughters (one a teenager so wish him luck). He loves classic TV, especially Seinfeld and MASH! He likes to workout and read on his Kindle and watch the latest trends on social media. First album he ever bought? "Band on the Run" by Paul McCartney and Wings. He still has it and is excited because vinyl is cool again!
