Jim started his career in radio at the age of 20 at a little AM station in West Virginia. When the station won the second longest FM case (at that time), he was selected to build the 50,000 watt FM station for the Corporation. On completion, the management changed and he went from radio to working for a Government Contractor in Northern Virginia. Much of the time consulting for the station he built. When the Contractor job ran out, he went to work as an Engineer for the Virginia Division Of Forestry in Charlottesville. Soon thereafter divorced, and then returned to West Virginia and went back to radio as an Engineer/Announcer in Logan. Followed by Engineer at a Matewan station and then Manager at that same station. He then left radio and went to work in the retail sector.
Since 1997 he has been doing "The New Oldies Show". First as a series of quarterly programs and starting in 2010, a weekly two hour program. The program is offered to licensed Broadcasters for free and contains three minutes of commercial avails in three breaks. It is an ecleptic program of 'Middle Of The Road' oldies from the 60s, 70s and 80s. Jim considers the show a 'hobby' and earns no profit from it. He says, "It's not about me. It's about the music. If people enjoy the show that's enough for me".
