Jim retired from Folk Alley at the end of 2012. He was one of a handful of people that worked on the music stream from its inception. As an on-air host on WKSU (Folk Alley’s producing station), Jim shared his love of folk music on the radio for more than 30 years. Jim grew up in the Northeast Ohio Snow Belt and still lives there today. He’s nestled 500 feet from the road in a timber frame house, which he helped build. Jim graduated with a B.A. from Kent State University, has been in over 30 plays, played bass in a bluegrass and swing band, and used to be a landscaper. Jim, a vegetarian, also enjoys sampling India Pale Ales, playing contract Bridge, attending auctions, cross-country skiing, gardening, mountain biking and spending time outdoors with his animals.
