Angelina BrockAngelina Brock

I guess the kids at the station really like me!!
Lets see… My mother (Sally Brock aka Walker) was born and raised here in Moab. My Father (Steve Brock aka GRIZ) was raised in Califonia… he moved out here in the 70’s… My aunt and uncle got my parents together and the rest, as you know, turns out to be me!!

My parents and I lived here in Moab up until about ’82 and then we relocated to Arizona… time passed and my parents decided to go there seperate ways. My mother and I moved to Texas and my father relocated to Moab. I would come visit during the summer months. It was then, that I was first introduced to KZMU… he and I did a show together. KZMU did not have much to work with back then, but everyone made it function just the same.

I went to high school and college in Texas…but always returned to visit family and friends…something always called me back to this Canyon filled oasis. I moved back in 99.

In the fall of 2009, I was arrested for a DUI. Man talk about being embarrased!! I was fortunate enough to do my community service at KZMU!! They welcomed me with open arms! I really enjoyed chatting and getting to know some of the unique people of the Moab Community. Then I was invited to become a DJ!! I accepted… I have been enjoying making the best out of a horrible situation… turining it to a positive note!!

I never realized how important music is to everyone… I knew it was a big deal to me. It is amazing how some songs fill you up with joy, sorrow, love, etc. I am just happy that I can share this with everyone!!

Bob LippmanBob Lippman

Got some things to talk about, here beside the rising tide…. Riverman, natural lawyer and monkey rancher Backofbeyondananda, brings great-full, big medicine resonance to the vast audio radiance. Hangin’ 10 while hosting the acid test on Fire on the Mountain (Gratefully Deadicated…), playin’ for change on Kokopelli Coffeehouse (don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows…), and gettin’ radio-active on This Week in Moab and Free Speech Friday (sending out an S.O.S….). Music is Love; let there be song to fill the air.

Brian QuigleyBrian Quigley

Brian has been a resident of Moab since 2007 and also lived in Moab in 1983 through 1984. He has spent most of his career working with the National Park Service throughout the country, with the ten years prior to moving to Moab spent working at two National Parks in New Mexico. He presently works as Lead Recreation Planner with the Bureau of Land Management in Monticello. Brian’s introduction to local radio was in college when he served as a DJ on the local campus radio at Paul Smiths College in Northern New York. He appreciates that KZMU allows him to listen to music he cannot hear on other radio stations and cannot overemphasize how important it is as a local/community based radio station. KZMU is a unique and important part of Moab.

David David "Spark" Livermore

David ‘Spark’ Livermore was never the president of his high school radio club but he did take an electronics course in college in which he built a radio as a diversion from his studies as an illustrator. Spark’s current expertise with computers comes from many hours of misspent adulthood and the emergence of the graphical user interface, which for a spacialy oriented person was, as he has pointed out, “my technological six shooter”, the great equalizer in a linear world.
In one of his many adult mid life crises, Spark was a DJ, spinning CDs for local parties in Hood River, OR, and when moving to Utah in 1999, he became attracted to KZMU ‘like a moth to a flame’. His first radio show was “Rhythm Quest” and for a while he hosted “The Atomic Lounge”.
He came to work for KZMU originally to catalog it’s extensive CD library as a volunteer, but was quickly press ganged into service programming a late night alternative to the KRCL feed which has become known colloquially as the JukeBox. Over the years his duties have expanded to include managing the stations digital music catalog and keeping it’s computers whipped into shape.

I grew up in a snowy place and felt the need to leave . I have had a lifelong love affair with music. In the mid 1980’s I discovered the pan-dimensional musical world of New Orleans and rural Louisiana. In the early 1990’s I discovered the Red Rocks of Utah. Life has never been the same since.

Love playing some Deep Fried Yum! Funky grooves and soulful melodies! Music from all over, with an accent on the music of New Orleans and Louisiana. Saxophones, Sousaphones, Big Bass Drums, Accordions, Brass Bands, Guitar Slingers, Island Beats and more.

From the quiet hollows of the Rio Grande Valley, (Coyote), comes the Tall Whispering Pine: they call him the Bluebird, Herman Fernando Herrera. Born and raised in the mountains of the Jemez, the San Pedro Wilderness (La Mesa Poleo), the Peppermint Mountain. Music is in his heart. It flows through his blood; his Ancestors both musicians and woodcarvers. He too is a recording musician, woodcarver, Father, Husband, DJ , and as Sorida, his Grandmother once said,” Herman is a caretaker of the land”. Life brough him to Moab 10 years ago when his Father was stricken with cancer. He has never forgotten his love for Lain music. While in Espanola, New Mexico, he was a local buinessman, and choir director. Herman was also a long time DJ for KDCE radio, and hopes to bring that NM Texas and Mexican Lain sound to KZMU in beautiful Moab,Utah– on the show ‘Entre Las Piedras” on Sunday nights at 9pm. There is no greater value in a man than the one his fellow men bestow upon him,,, so in closing, we give you HERMAN FERNANDO, The Tall Whispering Pine, The Blue Bird, El Pajaro Sin Alas.

Sea ChantySea Chanty

I’m a long lost radio pirate that has wandered the seas without a safe harbor for many years. I first got involved with radio in the late 80’s at KVMR, a small community station in Nevada City, CA. I began by volunteering at our monthly Nightlive Concerts – one of the longest running regular live radio broadcast shows. I eventually got the courage to step up to the mic as a broadcaster and “Pirates and Poets” was born. Through community radio I became involved in music festivals and live music events, primarily folk and bluegrass. After several years there, I was set adrift until eventually landing at KRFC in Fort Collins, CO. In the meantime I kept up my chops through pirate radio broadcasts at several music festivals throughout California and Colorado. I also hosted workshops, MC’d, and even helped organize the Millpond Music Festival for a few years. My exposure and love for world music also evolved during this time. In 2003, a change in my day job meant lifting anchor once again, drifting for the next nine years.

I’m thrilled to have shipwrecked here in Moab, where I discovered your little radio treasure chest at KZMU! The “Freakin’ Magic” that is FM Radio is expressed best in small community stations like this one. My gratitude to the universe is unbounded. Pirates and Poets once again has a port to sail from and a regularly scheduled launch time – every other Tuesday from 4-6 PM. I hope to be able to navigate with ease from wild shores of lost continents to the front porch of deep roots Americana. To steal a line from one of my all time DJ hero’s (thanks Peggy Lou) – “I wouldn’t be here if you didn’t turn me on” … so climb aboard matey, pull up the plank, and let’s set sail in search of musical adventures.

I’m Sock! I feel super passionate about music with social-political consciousness and a pulse, expressed from the heart, genuine, fierce and humble. Punk has revealed these qualities most to me, and that is mostly what I play on Operation Punk Subversion. I also talk about my personal experiences in punk and life, tying in the ideas, the music and what has spoken to and inspired me, and how my journey has been and continues to be heavily influenced by the counter-culture of do it yourself/together hardcore/punk.
