KJ Mac Bio
started in the basement of my Colorado Springs home when I
was a teen, playing DJ with my 45’s. I was having fun but
didn’t really give it much more thought until I went to
college. There they told me I had to declare a major.
While thumbing through the class catalog I came across The
Communications Department-BINGO I found my home.
Thirty-seven years later I am still doing what I love, being
on the air playing music! I moved to Idaho in 1978 and fell
in love with Boise. No need to look anywhere else, this is
where I am going to live and raise a family.
for KFXD-AM for about 5 years, doing all sorts of shifts
including Morning Drive. Then a call came in and a country
station wanted me to do their Morning Drive Show. Off I
went to be a Morning DJ on W O L D-sorry that’s a song, on
KGEM! Stayed there until yet another call came in from a
brand new FM country station and they wanted me to be the
first one to sign on the station-off to the FM band and
worked at KQFC for sixteen years!
playing country music but the music I grew up on was calling
my name, saying ‘come to K-HITS and bring back memories of
the songs you were playing back in the 70’s when they were
brand new.’ Off I went to play the Superhits of the
60-70-and 80’s at K-HITS, stayed with them for 10 years.
That brings us to today where I am playing all the Feel Good
Favorites from the 60’s and 70’s and every once in a while
we slip in some 50’s all on KOOL Oldies 99.5. I love being
the Morning Drive host, waking people up with wacky stories,
contests all while giving them the MOST music in the
When I am
not on the air you could find me being the arena voice for
the Boise State Broncos Men and Women’s basketball teams. I
have had the honor of being ‘the voice of the Broncos’ for
over 30 years. I also announce Boise State University
Softball games. Oh yeah, I love to play golf! If you ever
need somebody to join your group just give me a call!
Brian Rodgers -
My name is Brian Rodgers and I
survived my childhood, growing up in the Coldest Spot in the
Nation - the tiny town of Cut Bank, Montana. I will be
forever grateful for it was here that my radio odyssey began
in March of 1984 - the full-service station called KCTB-FM
(or KC-103 as it was known locally). After high school, I
moved to Bozeman where I worked for KBOZ-AM/FM, honing my
craft, learning important skills such as editing
reel-to-reel tape, developing character voices, entertaining
a large audience of college co-eds and of course, making a
decent pot of coffee to stay awake while on the air!
Eventually, in May of 1990, I
left the bitter cold winds of north-central Montana for the
banana belt of Boise - where we actually enjoy FOUR distinct
seasons! Love the weather, all of the fun things there are
to enjoy and all of the radio stations I have worked at over
the years - KLCI, KIZN, KBOI, KQFC, KJOT to name a few. I
have played every format, worked every shift, met some of
the biggest stars in rock and country music...and have made
some of the best friends a guy could ever have. Take our
own KJ Mac for example - we worked together at KQFC years
ago and to this day, he's the big brother I never had...and
one of the best bosses too!
I love playing this music -
seems like every song has a story attached to it! Granted,
I was born in 1967 so most of it is my parents' music...but
nonetheless, I love these songs and the memories that come
along with them. I grew up listening to the Beach Boys, CCR,
the Four Seasons and Elvis. Here at Kool Oldies 99.5, we
are all about FUN - the music, the contests, everything we
do is designed so that you - our valued audience - can have
FUN listening and remembering. So crank it up and sing
along - cuz that's what I am doing every Monday through
Friday between 3:00 and 7:00pm! LONG LIVE ROCK & ROLL...
Larry Doss -
started at a student-run radio station at the University of
Idaho. That’s where I got a “taste” of broadcasting and I
was hooked. I’ve worked for some great stations, met some
lifelong friends and feel very fortunate to make a career
out of broadcasting.
If you’ve lived in Boise for
long, you’ve probably heard my voice on KBOI, K106 and KHITS.
I did take a road trip for several years, and worked in
Seattle at KIRO. I’ve done and still do voice work for
clients throughout the Northwest. I’ve been a Program
Director at several stations, but have always been on the
air because it’s fun for me and because it never really
seems like work.
I’ve raised my four kids in
Boise and now have two grandsons to spoil. My current baby
is Rocket…he’s a Yorkie and doesn’t know he’s a dog!
I like to spend my time golfing,
traveling, golfing, working in the yard, golfing, boating
and fishing…did I mention golfing? And my wife and I really
enjoy all the fun things to do in the Valley, especially
during the summer.
