James Davis remembers his interest and passion for radio being stoked while growing up in San Francisco where he enjoyed Top 40 music on KYA & KFRC, and listened to “early Talk-Radio” talk radio on KNBR and KGO. Later on, he listened to KSAN 94.9, a progressive FM rock oriented station that played an eclectic mix of Bay Area and National music, live interviews and concert performances.
While attending college at Cal State Stanislaus University and majoring in organization communication studies, James hosted a college radio station weekend music show, and a also assisted with a central-valley weekly talk radio program.
Since relocating to the Central Coast 15 years ago James has been a frequent guest on local radio programs including the Dave Congalton Show. Over the past 3+ years James has hosted Flash Forward-Flash Back Friday, a local weekly radio program on Estero Bay Community Radio 97.3 FM, featuring current and classic music, live interviews and musical performances, and a spotlight on local community events.
Craig’s love of radio and media in general started at a young age. It included being a fan of Walter Cronkite, John Chancellor, David Brinkley and others, documenting and memorizing Casey Kasem’s American Top 40 on a regular basis, as well as scanning radio stations from his upstairs bedroom nightly while in headphones. He picked up stations in multiple states and markets, listening to a multitude of sports announcers and jocks, with his favorites including Vin Scully, Chick Hearn, Bill King, Dick Enberg, Lon Simmons and Hot Rod Hundley.
After graduating from San Luis Obispo High School, he attended Cuesta College, where his migration to radio and TV began. Under great instructors like Guy Rathbun and Bob Hartwig, Craig ultimately became the student advisor for the KGUR staff. From there concurrent part time radio jobs began, evolving into Music Director, Program Director and Operation Manager gigs, as well as on-air radio and TV hosting jobs, and voice-over work over the next 25 years, interviewing countless stars, musicians, and more.
Craig started his MarshallofRock.com website some years ago, with platforms on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube. He has also ran SierraSky Entertainment (named after his two daughters), providing DJ and planning services for weddings, parties and events over the years.
His passions include music of all kinds, sports (including his Raiders, Dodgers, Lakers, Angels, and Kings), spending time with his family, as well as running and working out and being outdoors.
Working with slotalkpodcasting.com brings it full circle for Craig, enabling his passion for creating compelling and entertaining content to continue on a fantastic platform, while connecting with positive personalities and people.
