Jim King

jimI was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland and attended Patterson High School. Following graduation in 1967, I went directly to work at the General Motors Assembly Plant in Baltimore. In 1969, I enlisted in the United States Air Force. After basic training, I was assigned to Lowry Air Force Base in Denver, Colorado. I then was reassigned to Osan AFB, Korea. After my time overseas, I wrapped up my enlistment at Cannon AFB, New Mexico. Upon separation from the military, I returned to work for General Motors in Baltimore.


I’ve always been interested in radio; and, in the early 80s, during a period of downtime at GM, I briefly attended a broadcasting trade school. It was then when I landed my first job in radio at a station with a familiar frequency — 103.7 FM — WHDG in Havre de Grace. Working two jobs, I was a busy person. I worked weekdays at my regular job and weekends at my hobby.


I retired from General Motors in 1997, but the radio gig kept on going. I bounced around the radio dial working for several stations in the Baltimore area before finally winding up right back where I started at 103.7 FM.


I am married. My wife Evelyn and I live in Edgewood. We have two grown children who are both married and on their own.


As for radio, I don’t have a crystal ball, so I don’t know how much longer it will last, all I know is that I am having a great time playing “The Most Music, Guaranteed.” And, I owe it all to you! Thanks for listening to THE Country Station, 103.7, WXCY.
