Defective Jukebox with Jim Riecken

Saturdays, 6:00PM to 9:00PM Eastern Time


Jim Riecken began doing radio in 1977, working at a small community college radio station. He joined WFDU-FM in April 1980. He has been doing the Saturday night 8-11pm shift since 1986.

Aside from his interests in radio and music, Jim enjoys reading (non-fiction), history, current events, "Forteana" (seemingly unexplained or curious occurrences), motion pictures (particularly horror/science fiction and film noir of the Forties and Fifties), hiking and nature. Jim likes cats, turtles, and salamanders.

Jim dislikes cookie cutter commercial radio, corporate media, entertainment monopolies, "group think", intelligent people who refuse to think, and self-appointed experts.

Jim plans to continue doing radio as long as it is fun.
