Classic rock deep tracks from San Diego radio icon Jim McInnes' personal music library every Saturday evening from 8 to 10p.
Jim came to San Diego to work on San Diego's first free-form FM, KPRI 106.5 in 1973. The following year when unsuccessful 101.5 KBKB decided to "recyle" itself as KGB FM in competition with KPRI, they hired away Jim to do mornings. For the following 28-years through the 1970’s, 80s and 90s, JM held court on 101.5 KGB including producing most of that station’s Homegrown album series and hosting the Homegrown Show. Jim was and still is a constant presence at local music venues and a musician himself with the San Diego-based band The Shenanigans. Jim is uniquely qualified to offer up classic rock deep tracks and music from local artists you don’t hear on any other radio station … maybe not even on satellite or streaming services. Rez Radio already had a 4,500 song playlist. Jim’s library brings Rez Radio’s rock music commitment to a whole new level.
Jim McInnes with his radio wit and musical wisdom joins a group of Rez Radio music programmers including locally-based folk musician Joel Rafael, Top 40 expert Mark Gleason, local music scene aficionado Chris Carmichael and station manager John Fox for a combined total experience in broadcasting of about 200 years … NOT an exaggeration!
Jim McInnes, still very much alive and kicking, is once again in his Vinyl Resting Place and back where he started in San Diego ... on KPRI.
