The best way to tell you about
Curtis is to show you some excerpts from an interview in late 2005.
Curtis - What is happening with your broadcasting career these
I have been a staff member at KKUP Cupertino since the late 1980s.
I've been a blues programmer with forays into jazz, country, latin, and classical formats.
Currently I have an air shift every other Thursday at 3pm (2nd & 4th Thursdays), and
you can catch me filling in from time to time on Mondays at 10pm and Wednesdays at 2pm on KKUP.
If you happen to hear my voice, give me a call at the station. It's always nice to see
what old friends and fellow music lovers are up to.
How did you get into radio?
I parlayed my interest in music and radio and attended radio broadcasting classes in San Antonio,
Texas (KSYM, San Antonio), and later at Foothill College (KFJC Los Altos Hills), California.
I intended to be a jazz or latin jazz DJ, but when a blues opportunity arose, I took advantage
(KFJC Los Altos Hills).
For the next 10 years, I hosted "The Blues Party" Monday mornings at 10am. This was a regular
program that was started by Al Monday and Glen Livit.
Once you get associated with some of our classic american roots music (jazz, blues, bluegrass,
rockabilly), you can't help but gravitate towards KKUP where they appreciate all these music forms.
Check this page as I will be making periodic updates about what I'm listening to and where I'm
going. I'll be wanting to hear from you and maybe we can connect.
Keep hope alive... -CJ
