Jim has the distinction of having the longest career at KWFM. In Jim's own words,
"My tenure at KW ran from 1971 to 1980. I actually applied in 1969, months before they
were on the air. I was a sophomore at Catalina High School. The school newspaper ran
an article about this new FM station that was going to hit the airwaves and I wanted to
be a part of it, even though I was only 16 at the time. Well, I didn't get the job,
not right away, but...."
"I started hanging around in earnest in the summer of 1971.
Mark Young would let me 'sit in' and do 'sets'
in the evening hours to hone my skills. They finally hired me to do weekends
later in '71."
Sometime around 1980 Jim joined the team at the relatively new KLPX, the KTKT FM
challenge to KWFM.
In 1983, Jim opened his own business, Jim Brady Recording Studios on Glenn Street in Tucson.
