Greg Kihn, the 1980's recording artist known for his chart-topping songs and MTV videos, "Jeopardy," and "The Breakup Song (They Don't Write 'Em Like That)," has been the Bay Area's #1 radio morning man reigning supreme on San Jose's KFOX 98.5 FM Classic Rock radio with a daily listening audience that includes greater San Francisco, Oakland, and Berkeley. In 2007, Greg celebrates his tenth anniversary on the Bay Area airwaves.
Greg's new nationally syndicated radio program, Greg Kihn's Big Rock Beat , is best described as the riveting Rock history of VH1's Behind the Music meets Spinal Tap's comical take on the music industry's real-world absurdities. Greg states, “It's an amalgamation of rollicking interviews, never-heard stories, and jam sessions with iconic Rock and Roll personalities. The listener not only gets to be a fly-on-the-wall, but also a participant in conversations with legendary rockers in a loose, non-scripted setting, as if we were all at the bar reminiscing.”
Mr. Wohlman's illustrious 30-year radio industry career was forged in Boston during the mid to late 1970's where he was a founding member of one of the first, and certainly one of the longest running, "punk/new rock" shows in the country, MIT Community Radio's The Late Risers Club on WMBR 88.1 FM. Mr. Wohlman and other original members of The Late Risers Club were recently the subjects of a documentary by New England filmmaker Marissa Acosta.
From 1978 to 1983 Mr. Wohlman was the Production Director and a member of the legendary WBCN FM air staff in Boston, which included the renowned King of the Hill, Crank Yankers, and Ren and Stimpy voiceover genius Billy West, during its ratings heyday, b efore relocating to San Francisco Bay Area.
