As far back as he can remember, Jerry Osborne has proudly stated “music is my life.” And he isn’t kidding. His desire to play music on the radio became a reality in 1961, when he became the DJ at his high school in Los Angeles. Three years later, he got his first full-time (and paying!) radio show on KREO in Indio CA. Over the next 24 years he climbed the ladder to major markets and top-rated stations like Sacramento (KXOA) and Phoenix (KNIX and KOOL). More recently, Jerry created a one-hour radio program titled “The Class Of…” now heard every Wednesday at 6pm on KPTZ.
Each week this fresh concept spotlights a specific year — from 1940 to 1989 – or even something surprising. For example, every few weeks instead of a year, he’ll have a theme that may span many years, such as “The Class of Duets,” or “The Class of ‘60s Instrumentals” . Jerry loves doing this show and always delivers an hour of some of the 20th century’s best music, along with interesting trivia and lots of personality.
