I've been an Eagle listener since the station signed on in 1990, and was an active member of the Eagle morning show as host of the "Morning Sports Page" with "Jeff and Mark" from 1991-1996. Now, from the "coming full circle department," I am the host of the new "Walt Gray Show" on the Eagle with the unpredictble Kat Maudru (starting Oct 22nd). As I look forward to joining the team, I was thinking about my list of favorite EAGLE DJ's since 1990 (in no particular order). Let me know your thoughts at email@example.com
Bob Keller – the only guy I know that has more imaginary friends than I have real ones. Seriously though, who doesn’t love The Café Rock?
Dorian McKenzie – her air shift wasn’t long enough to contain her smart wit; could have written for a TV hit, but would rather mock them for not hiring her.
Tom Nakashima – started in Sacramento the same year Pink Floyd released “Wish You Were Here”…yeah, a LONG time ago. There’s no better pro than Tom.
J. Walker – a bit of a staff prankster, he loved to share a good joke; plus, he blew out SO MANY SPEAKERS, searching for 11 on the volume controls.
Charlie Thomas – The King of Puns. This guy can rip 20 punch lines in 20 seconds. See, that degree in Chemical Engineering from Princeton IS good for something.
“Dead Air” Dave Diamond – a true Classic Rocker, from his studio mood-lighting and candles, to his choices in music. What a night-time character.
Derek Moore – a music encyclopedia, you can’t stump him on any trivia, from Eddie Rabbit to Eddie Van Halen. Amazing! Great guy, too.
J.D. Chandler – Every guy wishes he had a deeper voice, with the exception of the late Barry White, and J.D Chandler.
Harlan Winslow – from his deep knowledge and love of music, to his unique after-dark persona and classic mustache…a true original.
James Lee Jobe – he’s a poet away from the studio, but on-air and in the halls the guys’ a constant jokester that matches quality with quantity.
