AfterFM - Fergus
Fergus show archive and podcasts on afterfm.com. As an Army brat, I grew up in many places around the world and the U.S., including Japan and Germany. (KGNU volunteer Yukari Miyamae and I lived in the same town in Hokkaido when we were small children!) I've lived in Boulder since 1962 and graduated from Fairview High School and CU. I was recruited to be the engineer for the original science show on KGNU--Tesseract--and the producer of that show needed an engineer for her classical music show, so I was brought into the music side of the station in 1978. In 1980, 3 other DJs and I worked together to set up Old Grass, GNU Grass as the first collective-style rotation of a KGNU music program, a form that has now spread to most of our music shows.
I have played and sung music most of my life; sharing my passion for music with KGNU listeners was an easy choice. My music selections usually reflect my preference for unamplified music. To my ear, wood, wind, and wires sound better, with much finer detail, than guitar amplifiers and synthesizers, which sound largely the same, one to another. When I make recordings (the way I've made my living the last several decades), I work with the motto, "Air is the best mixer."
During my shows, listeners can expect to hear eclectic, unamplified music, contemporary and vintage tunes.
