I began “guest DJ” spots on KKFI in 2002 and after nearly twenty of these spots, I was encouraged to begin training to be an engineer as well as submit ideas for my own program!
Listening to music, both via live performance and on multimedia platforms, I cannot imagine living without it. I cannot play an instrument or sing very well, but I am in awe of those who can. In order for the circle of human creativity to be complete, someone has to be the patron and advocate. I believe this is my role.
Volunteering as a KKFI guest programmer fulfills both sides of the equation. I get to share the music I love while promoting those who do what I cannot do.
Diana is a member of the Americana Music Association and hopes to expand the listening base for KKFI by focusing and highlighting this treasure trove of music that she feels is severely under-represented by corporate radio.
