Rarity Rock Radio


The DeeperCuts ‘Virtual Residency’ for the month of November begins with the origins of my earliest experiences with popular music. This is the era where eclectic musical tastes were born, a swatch of songs from the ages of 0-19 years old. The playlist is arranged sonically, rather than chronologically. Hard to fit nineteen years into a one hour program, but y’all get the idea. More importantly, I sincerely hope you hear songs that resonate, and bring a smile. A heartfelt thank you goes out to Cass and Mike for giving me the opportunity to share my musical autobiography.

About John:
I grew up in Tempe, Arizona, the youngest of seven kids in a racially blended Family. As far back as I can remember, there was a Beatles album spinning on the turntable, and Top 40 on the radio. Music has always calmed, and energized me at the same time. My music tastes can definitely be classified as phases as I’ve moved through life. Now in my mid ’60s, it has all added up into a profound appreciation of all musical forms, whether or not I regularly listen to any particular genre. After living in Anchorage, Alaska for a few years, a fresh new radio station happened on the Alaska Public Radio Network in the fall of 1997. By the following spring I was volunteering at 90.3 fm KNBA, answering phones, and whatever else I could do to help out. In January 2017, I was offered an Internship as a live DJ on the mid-day shift. From there, my idea of a one hour show called DeeperCuts was approved, debuting 6-9-2018 on KNBA. The show is multi-genre, featuring a band, artist, or topic, and you’ll hear a bunch of songs from different eras as well, all songs that never got much, if any airplay. DeeperCuts has grown since then, now being produced and recorded from my modest, often disheveled home studio. I currently provide DeeperCuts to five Alaska Public Radio Stations. Additionally, DeeperCuts has proudly been a part of the Rarity Rock Radio Family as of March 2021. Thank you all for being part of my Radio journey…Rock On!
