(6 am-9 am) Jay enjoys playing the hits on The Q! He is so driven by music and the history of Rock & Roll that he loves playing music trivia with anyone willing to take on the challenge (Hint: He knows his stuff!). Married for 33 years, Jay and his lovely bride Regina have now seen their children go on to very successful careers themselves. A volunteer with the fire department and rabid baseball fan, Jay’s secret goal in life is to visit every ballpark in America to rate how nice the parking lots are. He was recently elected Mayor of Rock & Roll Radio by his 27 fans who have never met him but like his voice. (If they only knew)
(9 am-1 pm) Lord of the “Funderdome”, Jim is no stranger to broadcasting. He has been in some form of media broadcasting as far back as his 1 living brain cell can remember. A 1976 Ohio University graduate, Jim offers comedy, local discussions as well as many other attributes. Jim is the voice of the Q, and really knows how to bring flare to our airwaves. He lives in Bryan with his beautiful wife, Kathy, and enjoys spending time with his kids and grandchildren whenever he can.
(1 pm-3 pm) Jay’s been Rockin’ N’ Rollin’ for decades, beginning as a bass player in San Francisco Bay Area rock bands. His radio career began at a small 5000 watt AM station and after four years moving around Central California he wound up playing the hits in Los Angeles for over 28 years before spinning the records at The Q. A lifelong lover of Golden retrievers, he acquired somewhat of a tolerance for miniature Schnauzers thanks to his wife, Janet who’s been afflicted with Schnauzer-itis since her childhood on Long Island, New York. Jay is dedicated to making radio fun and informative for his listeners throughout Northwest Ohio and beyond.
(3 pm-8 pm) John’s 30+ year radio career has taken him all across the country, ending here at the Q96.5. His love of music from the player’s perspective has done the same: Lots of traveling as the guitarist in his own rock band! He’s also worked as a session musician for other great artists. When John’s not rockin’ on stage or entertaining us on the radio he’s hitting the hills off-road on his mountain bike or motorcycle, or he’s buried in his music room going through his huge collection of LPs. He also loves a great novel and never misses the latest block-buster movie.
(8 pm-1 am) This single mom landed her first radio job while working at a pizza parlor and now she’s playing your favorites at the Q. She and her twin teenage daughters have three dogs, three cats, two leopard geckos, a chinchilla and a fish. Joyce loves studying clouds and “weather watching.” She also sings and pulls out her guitar to entertain friends now and then. By the way, she still loves pizza.
(1 am-6 am) Keith 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 Q, he’s a true soccer dad with two daughters (one a teenager so wish him luck). Keith loves classic TV, especially Seinfeld and MASH! He likes to work out, 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!
