On this podcast, we’re chatting with a real music veteran. He's a record collector, a story teller and someone who's had a deep connection with music from an early age.
John Grappone is a long-time radio DJ and voice-over artist whose career has spanned both US coasts and has included interviews with countless music legends, including B.B. King, the Kinks, David Bowie, Billy Joel, Tina Turner, Ray Manzarek of The Doors, Fiona Apple….the list goes on and on.
He began his career in New York, hosting radio shows in Albany, Long Island, and New York City before heading west, where he still lives and works as a host for Portland Oregon’s KINK radio station.
Born with a voice for radio, Grappone sips lemonade (not spiked) while he walks us through his 100 favorite songs of all time. With such an impressive résumé, rest assured it’s one hell of a playlist!
