Simple Minds' Jim Kerr To Host Own Show On KX93.5/Laguna Beach, CA

Nonprofit "Generational" Alternative KXRN-LP (KX 93.5)/LAGUNA BEACH, CA is giving SIMPLE MINDS singer JIM KERR his own show to host, starting APRIL 30th. The show, called “ALIVE AND KICKIN' w/ JIM KERR,” will air SATURDAYS at 2p (PT) and feature whatever music KERR decides to play from his extensive collection, both new and old, familiar and unfamiliar. He’ll share stories behind why he picks each track.
KERR has been interviewed several times on the non-comm station and has affinity for independent radio, so he wanted to bring his show idea that he’s been tossing around for a few years to KX 93.5. “I really owed it to [KX 93.5] first,” said KERR. “I’m a kid from a estate in GLASGLOW. If you told me when I was eight years old that I’d be presenting radio shows in LAGUNA BEACH, I’d ask you what you were on!”
“It’s a big deal for us to allow our hosts to play whatever they want, something that is missing from chart-driven corporate radio,” PD TYLER RUSSELL said. “The fact that JIM KERR wants to bring his show here is a huge win for small radio stations everywhere.”
