Behind the Mic: David Bean

On Monday, July 12, 2021 Christine Barrington goes Behind the Mic with David Bean, DJ for Thursday’s New Squid In Town.  

KSQD is community radio—whether it’s music or talk, much of the programming streaming your way on 90.7 FM is created by community volunteers offering their expertise for the sheer love of doing what they do. But, who are the people running the studio, spinning the tunes, and sharing tales with local and national personalities? Their stories will likely surprise and delight you. 

If you have enjoyed the world of radio on the Central Coast over the past few decades, you have been touched by David’s presence in many ways. And, ff you happen to tune your radio dial or click into a live stream of KSQD Thursday’s between 1-3 you will have the chance to experience the warmth and the generosity of David’s presence. But as you romp through the musical associations he curates you may not know you are floating on the proverbial tip of an ice berg. David’s life has been an epic adventure in the world of musical entrepreneurship with early successes that built and accrued into an international career. David helped pioneer music streaming services, headed legendary CTI Records, and started numerous successful ventures representing and promoting artists, and, a whole lot more.
