PALA – Rez Radio 91.3 KPRI-FM in Pala introduced Jim McInnes as the newest member of the Rez Radio volunteer family, beginning in Sept. 5, at 8 p.m., with his new/old Saturday night show "Vinyl Resting Place."
McInnes is back for afternoons 47 years after he first hit the airwaves in San Diego on the original version of KPRI-FM. "Vinyl Resting Place," a show McInnes created for KPLN-FM The Planet early in the millennium, is a rich journey through his personal music collection.
He is a 28-year veteran on KGB-FM during its peak of popularity in the 1970s, 80s and 90s, produced most of that station's Homegrown album series, hosted the "Homegrown Show," was a constant presence at local music venues and performed as a musician with the San Diego-based band The Shenanigans.
Along with McInnes personal music collection, Rez Radio has a 4,500-song playlist. McInnes joins a group of Rez Radio music programmers including locally based folk musician Joel Rafael, Top 40 expert Mark Gleason, local music scene aficionado Chris Carmichael and station manager John Fox.
McInnes will follow the "Wolfman Jack Show" at its new time Saturdays from 4-8 p.m. with two weekly hours of "Vinyl Resting Place" from 8-10 p.m., leading into "Dead Air" a weekly hour of Grateful Dead music and interviews.
