Former Shows & Volunteers

What?? . . . My favorite show is . . . GONE ??

Radio Sausalito is produced entirely by volunteers. And though our listeners love and look forward to their favorite shows, our hosts and volunteers do tend to come and go with the tides. Here is a list of our shows that are no longer heard on the station, and some of the volunteers who contributed their time and energy to Radio Sausalito over our 20+ years of broadcasting.

Peter Huson

Peter hosted the Tide Reports for over 10 years (that’s more than 7,300 reports!) He renamed it “Tide Tones” and announced the birthdays of various musical celebrities at the the beginning of each day’s broadcast. Peter is doing fine… he just decided to hang up the microphone in 2022 and hand things over to the next in the esteemed league of tide reporters which goes all the way back to 2001.


The Jazz Lounge

The Jazz Lounge, created and hosted by Allan Berland, explored the Golden Age of jazz of the 1950’s and 60’s. Allan’s wife Joanna volunteered to become the program’s sound engineer, director, and editor. The Jazz Lounge was a co-production of the station and Berland Productions. It aired on Radio Sausalito from June 2019 – Feb 2022.


Jeff MacDonald

Jeff was Radio Sausalito’s “Vinyl Volunteer” for almost 15 years. He digitized all of the records that were donated to the station. Over 3,000 (!) tracks later, and Jeff decided to move north towards his home country of Canada. Thank you Jeff for all the wonderful pops and clicks that make our airwaves a totally authentic LP listening experience!


Tribute: Joe Agro – Music Director

Joe Agro passed away in September 2020. Joe Agro was born and raised in The Islands — Manhattan, Staten and Long, where he worked his way through school playing the saxophone around The City. Having studied engineering and business, he worked day jobs for awhile and raised a family. In 1989, after not playing for nearly thirty years, he started playing music again. He moved to the Bay Area in 1994. Joe devoted most of his time to music: playing saxophones; managing bands, including the Bossmen and the Starduster Orchestra; running jazz festivals and other entertainment events; writing articles for music publications; working for the Monterey Jazz Festival; volunteering as Music Director for Radio Sausalito. He also coauthored a book about the drummer Harold Jones, written along with his friends Harold Jones and Gil Jacobs.


Tribute: Mike Larner – Engineer

Mike Larner passed away in December 2017. Mike offered countless advice and work over 15 years to help make our station sound great.

Mike grew up in San Francisco and got his first radio DJ job in 1964 — a 6am-10am shift on weekends at a classical music station (a stretch for a partying college student). In 1967 he moved over to KFRC and played the hits for a couple of years, then he decided he’d rather make the hits than play them. He landed a position with Columbia Records when they opened a recording studio in San Francisco in 1970.

Over the years, Mike worked with Columbia and other studios on recordings of major artists like Quicksilver Messenger Service, Sons Of Champlain, Santana, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Simon & Garfunkel, Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show, Barbra Streisand, Taj Mahal, Confunction, and Herbie Hancock.

John O’Connell 

John O’Connell produced many of the Public Service Announcements on Radio Sausalito.
