was born in 1991 thanks to Kate Ingram, former
Music Director at KSAN, then Program Director of KUSF, and Ben
Fong-Torres. Ingram offered Ben a program slot on Sunday afternoon and Ben, not
wanting to tie himself down to a weekly show, suggested that she invite other
ex-KSANers to host the program on a rotating basis.
Billie Sharpe served as producer and coordinator for this project and for almost five years, Jive Radio hit the airwaves every Sunday afternoon. Many former KSAN employees participated and there were some notable programs.

THE JIVE RADIO REUNION
February 16, 1992
The success of the Jive Radio series led Kate Ingram to invite the whole gang over for a 25th anniversary celebration and reunion. For 13 hours on Feb 16, 1992, Jivers were at large again, telling stories, revealing secrets, playing favorite tracks and most of all, having a great time seeing old friends and radio comrades and doing some non-linear radio. Thanks to KSAN fan, Bill Wagner, who recorded it, we can now listen to this special program again.
