As many know, back in the 1950's, radio was considered the window to the world, which I eagerly listened to and began creating custom playlists for friends and family.
I hoped I could attract musicians, artists and people who were into good music to join me in Pacific Beach to enjoy the laid-back lifestyle and freedom from big city stress.
RUSTY & RED
Must have made a thousand mix tapes. Waiting patiently to press record on the cassette deck when your favorite song came on the radio. Always had some DJ start talking before the song ended. Every time you played the mix tape you cursed the DJ for screwing it up!
Along with being an “On Air Personality” aka Louie Marcs with his branded music show, “Smooth Jazz Beach Radio”,
MAVERICK ON MAINSTREET
Call me Maverick. I think KXPB is the best and I'm glad to know such a great group of people involved in radio.

KXPB RADIO FOUNDERS
KELLY KLINE (aka) MAX BETTER- ORIGINAL DJ
For my first concert I went to see the legendary 'The Doors' in 1967! Then I got to see Jimi three more times and I was fortunate enough to be at Led Zepp's Seattle debut
at Green Lake!
Music w/a Message
Chrissy uses music to bring her message whether it's for love of country, a holiday or other occasion, She loves playing music that makes you think & see what's going on in our world today....
HOWARD & BREEZY
Howard & Brenda were both born with vinyl in their veins! Howard's family was in the music business and Brenda inherited two music collections with over 700 records!
What some may not realize, upon his return from Vietnam, Mike's passion for radio was ignited and he sought to become a DJ. He learned from Bob Crane (Hogan's Heroes) and Gary Owens (Laugh In)

I first rode in to Pacific Beach in February of 2021 and met some of the gang at KXPB Radio. I find myself in the good company of other creative souls.
I remember going to Johnson's in Copalis with my dog and buying junk food and heading out tot he beach with songs like "Green Eyed Lady" or "Rock On" playing in my head.
Professor & Mary ann
It's simple...it's all about the music and the beaches. That's what keeps us coming back. Everything is better with music.
Captain Ron has always had a great affection for music and radio. Growin up in the Midwest in the 60's, AM Radio was the source for soul, R&B and top 40 music.
I've been interested in radio ever since I hung out with my best friend at his summer job at a radio station in Williams, Arizona.
That was in 1976.
