    “Paleo” Dave Paiz’s love affair with radio began in South Texas way back in the mid-’70’s when as a boy he used to call in and pester the DJ’s at a local Top 40 station in Corpus Christi. After moving to Southern Arizona in 1977 and several long, strange decades since doing everything from soldiering to science writing to field archaeology, in the summer of 2005 Dave finally made his on-air debut on KXCI Community Radio and launched Bat Country Radio in June of the following year. After 12 years burning the overnight Bat Country oil with a caustic mix of punk, post-punk, metal and noise rock, Dave joined Downtown Radio in 2018 and hosted several different specialty shows before taking on the challenge of a daily morning mix as the host of the Scrambled Sunrise, where these days he spins a less abrasive blend of mostly 21st century indie rock, ’80’s/90’s commercial alternative and late ’70’s/early ’80’s New Wave and College Rock, with lots of exceptions.   Stream past shows at : https://www.mixcloud.com/paleodave Instagram : https://www.instagram.com/ktdtscrambledsunrise Facebook : https://www.facebook.com/djpaleodave Email : paleodave@downtownradio.org

Music You Should Know

Mr. Bill is a reformed multi-instrumentalist (none of them with any virtuosity) singer/songwriter with a weakness for 60’s British invasion, 80’s alternative, and almost any interesting emerging music. He led bands in Minneapolis and San Francisco, with a couple of 7” records (self) released in the late 70’s and early 80’s, one of which has gained a sort of cult status (the other, frankly, just wasn’t very good…) Prior to 99.1 FM, Bill was a stranger to radio (much to his chagrin, as he really, really wanted his records to be played on the radio)… His goal with the rock mix show is to explore and share great music with you that ought to have been heard, but is/was often ignored by the masses. He doesn’t watch TV (it has been years since he’s seen or heard a commercial), and declines to listen to mainstream radio — so if you hear something familiar at times on his show, it is because he is blissfully ignorant of most popular culture, and doesn’t know or realize that something may have gained some popularity without his knowledge… His goal with each show is to introduce (or perhaps reacquaint) you to/with great under-heard artists, to support and provide airplay for Tucson musicians, and hopefully, play at least a couple pieces each week that have never graced your ears before. On any given show, you will hear music that spans the last 60 or so years.

Radio Club Crawl

Brother Mok is no stranger to radio land. For all of the nineties, he was doing all types of broadcasting–from Boarding Oping at KNZR news/talk for the Art Bell Coast to Coast show; doing Dodger games; doing Tucson Tex at College, Community, and Internet Radio at KBCC, Radio Free Bakersfield, and RadioInvasion.Com; to working as Music Director and New Director at KBCC. However, after a short-lived commercial radio job, Bro Mok [aka Tucson Tex] focused on other artistic avenues–booking bands, playing in bands, and family. With a few attempts to move back home to Tucson, in 2004 that’s what finally happened. Still focusing on music and family, in late 2015, the radio cocoon was broken when a Downtown Radio DJ and bandmate encouraged Bro Mok to do a shift at Downtown Radio. But why not come back as Tucson Tex? Glad you asked. On October 27, 2013, Lou Reed passed away. Bro Mok is a huge Lou Reed fan, and many folks had already been calling Ted Riviera (Bro Mok’s real name) ‘Mok’ after a song Lou Reed wrote called “My Name is Mok” (for the Canadian animated film, “Rock N’ Rule”). So, Brother Mok was born. Brother Mok brings you two unique weekly shows: a Thursday rock mix show that is heavy on new music, fun facts and a few twists, and Radio Club Crawl which is a sonic sample of what's playing around Tucson.

Each week, we will travel to a different state in America to celebrate music from that state. We will highlight artists and bands from the state of the week and we will also enjoy music from artists and bands with the state's name in their band name, song name or album title. We are going in order of statehood admitted into the Union. This is a limited time, one year project, so jump in now!!! I also have another show called "the art of easing" on Sunday mornings from 9-11 AM, if you want to swing by...

The THING From Tucson

11:00pmTuesday

11:00pmTuesday

The Thing from Tucson is a one of a kind radio show. It’s one part midnight movie creature feature, one part gory jukebox, two parts campy comedy of bloody fun! It’s hosted by The Gorehound and Celeste Frankenschtein. The music is all about horror, serial killers, and/or scary movies, with vintage horror movie trailers played throughout the entire show. If you want a late night sonic terror fest of music then the Thing from Tucson is for you. Tune in every Tuesday from 11pm to Wednesday 1am and don’t say we didn’t warn you!
