Steve Craig

It’s hard to believe I’ve been on the radio for 35 years now!

I’m very excited to be part of an amazing rock and roll family at the river…

I grew up in southern California, and as an aspiring drummer I would crank up my stereo and play along with the Beatles, Stones, Creedence, Beach Boys, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin and BTO!   I was definitely better at cuing up the records than I was drumming, so I started hanging around radio stations in the 70’s… one was brave enough to hire me!  

I arrived in Atlanta in 1992 as part of the original cast of 99x, and  after its demise, I moved to New York city to help launch a classic rock radio station there… after re-discovering my music roots,  I’m back! 

I’m always asked what my favorite album of all time is, it’s just too hard to pick one… but i guess I’d have to say “pet sounds” by the beach boys.  The first album I bought with my saved lunch money was Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” and I have the greatest punk and new wave album collection east of the Mississippi, so I guess you can say I’m all over the rock and roll map!

My first concert was on my 16th birthday when I snuck in to see the Ramones in their very first west coast concert… I’ve been a big supporter of live and local music ever since! 

As an instrument-rated pilot, I’m also proud to support a wonderful organization here in Georgia …   “Angel Flight” is a non-profit group of pilots who fly free medical support missions for those who can’t afford transportation.  Please find out more here.

I can’t thank you enough for listening!
