Steve’s love of music started with listening to and performing gospel music. Now his taste has spread to include all types of music from around the world. After moving to Alaska at age 12, Steve’s exposure to live music was limited to those bands that decided to make the trek north to Alaska. His second car had an 8-track tape player and he still remember listening to his favorites — Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young’s “4 Way Street” and Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon.”
Though he never mastered an instrument or developed his voice beyond occasional performances, music has always been part of his life. Steve says he uses music as a way of supporting his journey through life and now has the ability to share with the listening audience of KDLL.
Soldotna has been home to his family for the past 27 years. They enjoy the “peninsula life” and the friends they have made in the area. When not spinning music, he is an associate professor of business at Kenai Peninsula College.
First album he chose for himself: Simon and Garfunkel, “Bridge Over Trouble Waters”
Most memorable concert: Dead and Company with John Mayer at The Gorge, Washington in 2015
Desert island album: “Pulse” by Pink Floyd (including the live version of “Dark Side of the Moon”)
