Emily McBride got her start in radio at age 16 when she applied to be a community-member DJ at KCPR, Cal Poly's student radio station. She was lucky to be in the last class of DJs that KCBX's Neal Losey trained, and loved learning about structuring a show that can take you on a musical journey from one genre to the next!
After a summer of subbing shows at KCBX, she is grateful that Shawn Hafley trusted her to take the reins of the show he founded, Citizen Sound. She is also happy to be part of a station she grew up listening to.
Emily's taste in music is inspired by her parents - who introduced her to classic rock and folk - and by her regular musical explorations attending concerts and digging around the Internet for new and exciting sounds.
