I have been involved in the entertainment industry for over 20 years.
I started playing guitar at age 9 and haven't stopped since. I have
performed with recording artist such as Lou Rawls, Jack Jones, and
others. As a promoter, I have promoted and/or helped in developing
the careers of David Benoit, Dianne Schuur, Russ Freeman and the
Rippingtons, Skywalk, Walter Trout, Max Bennett and others. I was
a pioneer in bringing into fashion the "Jazz Fusion" music
scene in Los Angeles. I Brought groups to LA from Canada, Brazil,
and New York City.
My company, Pretzel Productions, promoted concerts in Los Angeles,
San Diego, San Francisco, and Las Veges througout the 80's. Over
the years I have mingled with the top musicians in the Los Angeles
music scene. I was also a special events jazz promoter for the Bayside
Plaza Holiday Inn in Santa Monica and Double Tree Hotel in the city
In 1997 I launched, Hollywood Trax a half hour television show in
satellite syndication (Network 1). The show featured top recording
artist as: Tina Turner, Sheryl Crow, David Bowie, Silver Chair,
Jon Bon Jovi, just to mention a few.
I have been involved in the music scene all my life. I remember
singing "Jesus Loves Me" at church with my mom when I
was three or four. I've been singing ever since. When I was quite
young I began taking piano lessons, which to this day I wish I would
have practiced more of. Then I went to guitar, clarinet, bass guitar,
bass clarinet, contra-bass clarinet, drums, tenor sax, and auxillary
went to college, studied music education and had to add on a bunch
of instruments there. So, there I was with a music ed degree and
nothing to do... I started teaching special education to children.
I also took a job conducting four church choirs and I was assistant
managing a restaurant. Multi-tasker? Uh Yeah!!! I can't stand still.
So, I did a three jobs for about two years and then I decided that
I needed more in my life.
moved out to LA to pursue my music once again! It is here in LA
where I met Jakob and Tony doing an interview for the featured artists
show... the rest is history! I am so excited to be joining such
a wonderful family! I've been having an awesome time learning the
ropes of the radio brodcasting life. For a girl from Iowa, this
high school I enhanced the sound of the lunch time broadcast, by
introducing network news, back timed to the top of the hour. When
the lunch hour broadcast moved to Community Antenna Television,
I had formed a broadcast team that was heard throughout the local
community over the local cable system.
attending the university of Idaho, I got involved with the University
owned radio and television stations. I wrote and produced promos,
and newscast that aired on KUID-FM. I took the helm as morning man
on the stations highly rated Sunday morning show, recieving phone
calls from hundreds of miles outside the stations broadcast area.
a stint in AOR radio, I moved over to AM, holding down the evening
shift at KCLX in Colfax, Washington. Along with the Top 40 evening
format, I engineered football and basketball game broadcast at the
studio. I would race home after my saturday morning show to listen
to Rick Dees Weekly Top 40 countdown, and compare the production
qualities compared to American Top 40 with Casey Kasem, which aired
on out of town stations. California was calling.
I grew up in Denmark and moved to San Francisco for the first time
when I was 19 years old. In 1992 I joined Radio Sundbo and Radio
Victor in Esbjerg, Denmark. I had a weekly radio show every Sunday
between 6 and 8 pm. Before that I had a short 3 month career on
another local radio station (NR Radio). Together with my Co-Host
Marina we did Friday and Saturday evening request shows.
2002 I found Radio Gets Wild on Live365.com and was amazed with
their format. It was what I had been looking for for years. Even
better was that Radio Gets Wild was World Wide. I signed up and
in two weeks time I had my own radio show. Soon thereafter I started
Suite108.com. The first show I produced was The Featured Artists
Show together with Tony Pretzello.
have written many different radio shows by now and have been lucky
to meet great musicians from LA. This Year Im looking forward to
our live productions from Hollywood
I am a former DJ. (WICY-AM in Malone, N.Y., KFMM-FM in Tuscon, Arizona),
and a long- time actor in Hollywood and New York in all mediums
including film, television, stage and voice work, especially cartoons.
Show will be an eclectic mix of theater, literature, music, commentary
and discussion with an emphasis on wierd stuff. Highly suspicious
of all the thousands of lies I have been fed since birth (The Check's
in the mail, the government's here to help, your doctor knows best,
war is to preserve the peace, vaccinations are good for you, fluoride,
a deadly poison, should be in the water, pesticides are good and
good for you, organized religion is a positive force of the world,
your vote matters, etc.) , I will endeavor to rip away a few masks
and have some fun with sound, which I love.
typical show of one hour might contain a "Books on Tape"
segment of books and stories of interest, a weird science segment,
guest musicians improvising and sharing new material, interviews
with people of interest, and generally some of the strangest music
you're liable to encounter outside of the dream state. Enjoy!
Callaway Show will be available for On Demand listening in mp3 format
on this page.
