Radio Boise’s General Manager Jessica grew up in Boise, graduated from Boise High School and earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology and creative writing from the College of Idaho. She went on to the University of Denver, where she earned a master’s degree in mass communications and public relations. Prior to joining the Radio Boise team in April of 2015, Jessica worked with federal agencies and nonprofits for 15 years, spending several seasons as a wilderness ranger before transitioning into volunteer coordination, fundraising, and nonprofit administration for several community-based environmental stewardship organizations in Colorado. An incurable optimist when it comes to the ability of inspirational nonprofits to harness community spirit and broadcast the voices found across the dial of human experience, she likes to try and turn it up to 11 at Radio Boise every day.

Wayne is a hopeless radiophile, having been a student programmer at student-run KBSU in the 80s, then working commercially at Boise station KIDO, before joining the Radio Boise effort in 2005. Besides his role with Radio Boise, Wayne has an MFA in Creative Writing from Eastern Washington University, has published a handful of short stories and is prone to unreasonably long backpacking and rock climbing trips. He calls it his long-range therapy for his longstanding pathology for community radio.

Live Performance, In-Studio Guests

A simultaneous plunge into the parallel worlds of Boise’s potent 90’s all-ages punk scene and Borah High School’s music program gave Dave Manion a relatively early hands-on awakening to the huge variety of music found outside of commercial radio’s narrow scope. While continuing his longtime involvement in the music community as a performer and educator, Dave has found himself fully bitten by the community radio “bug”. In his role as In-Studio Liaison, he coordinates on-air interviews and performances by artists, organizations, and individuals, with the goal of helping to draw attention to the threads of arts, culture, and service that may be overlooked by traditional commercial media.
