Jake Beales    I’m a Senior at Encinal High School and I take a lot of pride in being one of the program directors for 96.1 KJTZ. I co-host and produce a show with Big Sy in the Morning every Tuesday from 8 AM-9 AM called the Turbulent Hour, where we try to play the best that underground and old school rap has to offer. I also co-host a show with Nick and Seamus (of Nutty News and Ground Control infamy) every Wednesday from 8 AM-9 AM called Dead Air, where we play a hodge podge of rock music, ranging from hardcore punk to dad balladry, and aimlessly rant about the weirdest news stories from the week.    Aside from radio/broadcast, my true passion is music. Raised on the Ramones and the Clash, I can’t remember a time where I didn’t aspire to be a rockstar, touring the world and performing for adoring fans. The goal is to write and produce some records before I graduate. If this whole music thing doesn’t turn out, I’m planning to pursue a job in radio, TV, and/or film after getting a degree revolving around those fields.

  Nick Lindell-Wright    I'm a Senior here at Encinal and one of three program directors at the the radio station, helping other students with any problems they face in their radio endeavors. I host two shows called Ground Control with my boy Seamus McGuiness, and also Dead Air, a show hosted alongside Jake Beales and Seamus McGuiness. Both shows focus on great music, including genres of rock, alternative rock, and punk. We are always discussing interesting and sometimes controversial topics on each of the shows. I love being able to express myself on the radio, whether that is through sharing music or my ideas. As for my future, I want to pursue a career in broadcasting, whether that means in film/TV or in radio, so this class is one of the best educational opportunities I can pursue.
