Jim Davis Mornings 6AM-9AM

Feb 21, 2024 6:00 AM – 9:00 AM

I grew up in Fenton, Mo and was raised on Motown, R&B, and Classic Rock. My appreciation for album rock began in middle school. In fact, it was this format of music that led me to pursue a Mass Communications major at Southeast Missouri State University.

I had the great fortune to work in the radio business behind the microphone at KGMO-FM, KAPE-AM, KYRX-FM, AND KTXI-FM in the 80’s & 90’s. I Transitioned my love for the radio business to radio sales in St. Louis and joke about the fact that I have done every type of work in a radio station except balancing the books and cleaning the place. : jimdavistheroots.fm@gmail.com

I found John at the Roots in early 2023 and after discussion and my prior background I decided it was time to dust off the microphone and join this great radio station. Truly the best album rock on the “planet”.

I live in Columbia, IL with my wife and family. When I’m not working on The Roots.FM , you can find me on a golf course, or chilling with friends on a pontoon boat at Lake of Egypt. You can hear me Monday – Friday 6-9 am and 7:15 am Friday morning for “Your Friday Morning Floyd”.
