KSJB AnnouncersBobby Gaye - KSJB Mornings (6am - 10am)
Possibly the most popular Radio Personality in Jamestown History is KSJB Morning Host Bobby Gaye.
Bobby broke unique ground and achieved star status in the 1960's as the first major DJ on a major Dakotas radio station to play 'Rock and Roll' music!
During that time Bobby was also famous for his various personal appearances and 'dance parties' all over the upper midwest at which he provided good, clean fun for area teenagers.
After extended adventures elsewhere including the SD Black Hills area, Bobby rejoined the KSJB team in September of 1998 and we are truly thrilled to be able to bring this legendary broadcaster to you each and every day on KSJB!
