John Pillow

Substitute Host

A SLO native, John has traveled as a musician and actor but kept coming back to the Central Coast, so decided to stay here in 1998. When not playing music, listening to music, reading about music or talking about music, he spends time with his wife and son, and manages a local retail store.  Though now retired from the theater, he has appeared over many years on many central coast stages, most recently in PCPA's 50th Anniversary Season in 2014. John formerly hosted The Classical World for 16 years on KCBX, but retired from the show in August of 2018. You can now hear him occasionally substituting on a variety of music shows covering many genres.
